Federated Identity makes it possible for students and faculty to access resources at multiple campuses through a single account. With federated identity:
Your existing academic login becomes a single, trusted, enabling, passport to education, research, and collaboration opportunities throughout Ohio.
- Single ID to use and remember
- Trusted to protect privacy and security
- Enabling access to academic services
- Passport that's accepted throughout the University System of Ohio
- A single user id and password to remember
- Easy access to educational resources across Ohio and the world

For Educators & Researchers
- Focus on creating learning and research tools, not on IT
- Control access to restricted content
- Comply with US Federal regulations (FERPA, HIPAA, etc.)
- Streamline access to Federal grant systems (NIH, NSF, etc.)
For IT Staff
- Eliminate redundant systems and data
- Deliver stronger, more secure identity and access management
- Reduce access-related support costs
Shared wireless access
- Students, faculty and staff can get Internet access not only at their own campus, but when visiting other member institutions – simply by opening their laptop
Example: Two institutions share a campus and a wireless network, but provide appropriate services to their own users based on identity.
- Authorized researchers from multiple institutions can securely share access to systems and data sources – without an extra credentialing and authentication process
Example: Cancer researchers from across the state share study data with each other, while preventing unauthorized access and complying with federal regulations.
Web single-sign on
- Users can easily move between applications at their own institution or at other member institutions – using a single login
Example: A consortium of colleges and universities provides a unified web portal for prospective students to select the 'best fit' academic program from among all the members of the consortium.
