Information about the Single Sign On process with the University of Cincinnati Identity Provider (IdP)
The University of Cincinnati’s Identity Provider (IdP) offers Single Sign-On (SSO) functionality with a 10 minute timeout for the Service Providers (SP) that are configured to work with the UC IdP.
What this means is for 10 minutes after logging into a service provider (SP) a user will not be required to re-authenticate to the IdP.
For example: A user logs into Catalyst and within 10 minutes goes to
https://mail.uc.edu the user will automatically authenticate to
https://mail.uc.edu without having to re-enter their username and password.
But, if the user logs into Catalyst and then goes to
https://mail.uc.edu 20 minutes later the user will be redirected to the IdP login page and will need to re-enter their username and password.
