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 a Single Sign-On solution called Ethos Identity which facilitates 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.

Example: You log into myDrake first thing in the morning to check your email. You see that you are now able to register for classes. To register, you navigate to MyDUSIS to access the registration pages. Since you already logged into myDrake, you can access MyDUSIS without being prompted to re-enter your Drake credentials.

What systems can I access through Drake's SSO?

Ethos Identity, the SSO solution used by Drake works with either your Drake ID or email address. Some applications are deemed extra confidential and required an additional security prompt for DUO, Drake's multi-factor authentication product.
