EIZ Portal at UP


Shibboleth is an open-source project that provides Single Sign-On capabilities and allows sites to make informed authorization decisions for individual access of protected online resources in a privacy-preserving manner.

Currently, not all licensed database providers support the Shibboleth system. However, this secure authentication and authorization technology is increasingly being promoted throughout the world.

How to connect to a resource via Shibboleth?

On the website, choose a link such as "Institutional Login" or "Login via Shibboleth", select the federation (region, group) Czech academic identity federation-eduID.cz and the institution Palacky University Olomouc, and then sign in as to the Portal UP web.

You can easily connect directly from this portal by selecting the link "Shibboleth" (next to the "Connect" link) in the source list, or via the link Shibboleth (remote access) on the page of the selected source. After that, simply enter the login information you have for the Portal UP.
