Password Management

The exciting news is that the Kantara Initiative IT tools are SSO deployed! We use a combination of Shibboleth through a SimpleSAMLphp gateway.  All of our user accounts are registered and managed through specified Identiy Providers (IdPs).  As the IDs and Passwords are stored with each Identity Provider we do not manage user account adminstration through confluence.  IMPORTANT:  To change or retrieve a lost password each user will need to login to the Identity Provider where their user account is registered.  Current IdPs supported include ProtectNetwork, Kantara Initiative and OpenID. The OpenID Deployment is still in experimental phase as the harmonization around such a Multi-Protocol solution develops.


IMPORTANT: To fully logout a user should quit their browser session fully.
We are aware of a known issue regarding the Shibboleth extentions in use with Confluence. We apologize for this inconvinence and wil continue to track the issue with the developers involved.
