Single sign-on system or SSO enables users to login to all systems in one place (i.e. one website). The user is automatically logged in to other systems after the initial login without the need for additional password entries. Furthermore, the single sign-on system also brings increased security.
Palacký University uses a SSO system based on Shibboleth platform, which is an open-source project used at many universities. One of its major advantages is a free license and great community support. Users log in to most of the applications at UP through only one webpage. Login page is secured by EV certificate, the address line shows university name in green colour.
If you would have any problems with logging in using the SSO system, please, use the online Helpdesk - helpdesk.upol.cz.
