CAS, or Central Authentication Service, is an open-source, enterprise-level, single-sign-on protocol for the web. CAS gives users access to multiple applications using a single sign-on and allows web applications to authenticate users without giving them access to user passwords. CAS has a Java server component and various client libraries written in PHP, PL/SQL, Java, and more.
In this course, we discuss CAS's architecture and features and practice installing and configuring a CAS server. By the end of the course, participants will have an understanding of CAS's implementation of SSO (Single-Sign-On Authentication) as well as the necessary practice to deploy and manage their own authentication server.
