Single Sign-On (SSO) support for Global Research Institutes
SJSU is a member of the InCommon Federation and SJSU IT also provides identity integration for the InCommon Federation so SJSU users can access global resources available through Internet2 - InCommon Federation.
At a time when every major research project involves remote resources—human and otherwise—Internet2 is committed to helping researchers and research managers focus on the research itself, rather than the provision of infrastructure. Internet2 members have access to a unique, nationwide high-performance network infrastructure that removes the boundaries of today's Internet and provides an unsurpassed testbed for research.
Internet2 is revitalizing research partnership and engagement, creating an integrated network and services architecture for Internet2, and implementing a roadmap that will keep the Internet2 community—the same community that created the Internet—at the focal point of technology innovation and development.
