HR ACCESS FOR CASUAL EMPLOYEES: This application allows casual employees to view their pay statements on line. Currently access has been setup for Teaching Assistants (TAs). Remaining casual employee groups will soon be on-line.In order to access your pay statement you will require your UTORID and Password as well as the last four digits of your SIN.
ETOKEN: eToken is a USB-based two factor authentication token that provides strong user authentication and cost-effective password management.  eToken is used for authenticating into major UofT systems such as HRIS, FIS, MRA and more.  

EDUROAM: Eduroam or education roaming, provides roaming wireless network access for students, staff and faculty at partner institutions. Users are able to authenticate using the same credentials as they would at their home institution or office. UofT faculty, staff and students, therefore, can use their UTORid to gain access to the eduroam service at affiliated institutions. Likewise, other institution members can access the UofT eduroam service using their usual credentials. 

Students, educators and researchers are mobile, using wireless connectivity as they travel to other institutions.  Normally this required the visitor to obtain a special temporary authentication credential. Additional effort was required by the visitor and the visited institution to maintain these extra credentials.

When both the visitor's and the visited institutions participate in eduroam, the visitor is automatically permitted access to the wireless networks of the visited institutions by using their home-organization credentials.
SHIBBOLETH: Shibboleth is an open source software product for identity management, authentication, authorization, and access control. Shibboleth implements SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language). It consists of three functional parts:
  • the identity provider (IdP): This component is associated with the institutional identity and access management resources and is used to manage user authentication sessions and supply attributes bound to the user to service providers for authorization.
  • the service provider (SP): This component is bound to the web service or server that is implementing access control.
  • the browser: The client is normally a web browser although SAML does support enhanced clients and proxies.
