Accounts and Passwords

  • IUP utilizes a Web Single Sign-on Service (WebSO) to handle access to the various services provided by the university.  This allows user to use their IUP Computing Account Username and a single password to access WebSO configured services.

    WebSO is a single sign-on service used to gain access to IUP web services. With WebSO, the user logs in once using the network (IUPMSD) username and password, and gains access to multiple systems without being prompted to log in to each system. Access to specific sites is determined by the access granted to the IUP username.

    When a service or website is protected by WebSO, you will be prompted for your IUP username and network password. After entering this information correctly, the web browser will display the requested service or website, and it will also provide key information to the web application. In most cases, this will be your username. You will always be warned before information is disclosed to a new website. You will be able to access other WebSO websites during this browser session without re-entering your password.

    To prevent others from accessing your personal information, you should always log out of the service(s) or websites after using WebSO. The best way to do this is to log out of all services and websites that you have accessed, and then completely exit your web browser.

    If you  questions related to WebSO, please contact the IT Support Center via ihelp.
