What is CAS? The Central Authentication Service (CAS) is a “single sign-on” service allowing an account holder to logon a single time to university services, and then access other services without the need to login again each time a different service is desired. CAS recognizes four levels of access: IU faculty/staff, IU students, IU affiliates, and guest. Guest accounts allow non-university affiliates limited access to certain university online services.
