→ What is Single Sign On (SSO)?

We are deploying a Unified Authentication (UA) system at IHEP. The apps, which need user authorization (such as DocDB, Indico, Hypernews and Wiki, etc.), will be integrated with this system progressively in the future. When this is done, one can login these apps with a single account which is so-called the Single Sign On (SSO).


We welcome new members to join the collaboration, and all members are asked to respect the BESIII Membership Rules. Spokespersons will be responsible for informing individuals of this rule and for enforcing them.
