UCSB Identity Services supports two services to provide for UCSBnetID-based authentication for campus applications.
LDAP-based authentication allows for an application's LDAP API to connect to an LDAP-based attribute service by which one can verify UCSBnetID credentials as well as query attributes. Our LDAP services are available only to connections originating from the UCSB network; if your application is hosted on-campus we recommend the use of LDAP authentication.
To configure your app or service to use LDAP authentication see our detail on Configuring LDAP Authentication.
See our Configuring Shibboleth page for more details on setting up your app for Shibboleth authentication.
