Single Sign On (SSO) and Drake applications (FAQ)

What is Single Sign-On (SSO)?

Single sign-on (SSO) is an authentication process that allows a user to access multiple applications with one set of login credentials. With SSO, a user logs in once and gains access to different applications, without the need to re-enter log-in credentials at each application. SSO authentication facilitates seamless network resource usage. SSO mechanisms vary, depending on application type.

What program does Drake use for Single Sign-On?

Drake utilizes two Single Sign-On solutions called Ethos Identity and Microsoft Azure Active Directory which facilitate logins to many Drake resources.

What does this mean for me?

SSO makes it so that you log into a single application that is part of the SSO network to log into all SSO-enabled applications.

What systems can I access through Drake's SSO?

Ethos Identity and Microsoft Azure Active Directory are the two SSO solutions used by Drake. Ethos Identity will work with either your email address or Drake ID number; Microsoft Azure Active Directory will only work with your Drake email address. Some applications are deemed extra confidential and required an additional security prompt for DUO, Drake's multi-factor authentication product.
