The current iteration of the UH Web Login Service utilizes CAS v3.x technology. Previously the UH Web Login Service utilized Jasig CAS v2.x technology (CAS2). The two versions differ in several profound ways:
- The method for releasing attributes is different. CAS v3 features attribute release policies for additional flexibility.
- CAS v3 imposes additional security requirements. URLs must be registered before authentication is allowed.
For security purposes and for compliance with UH Data Governance policies and procedures, the UH Web Login Service - CAS v3 requires that application developers register their production application URLs with ITS in order to interoperate with CAS v3, including client-based development URLs.
