Remote access via SHibboleth

Logo Shibboleth

Shibboleth is technology, which allows users to log in to an electronic resource using their university credentials (UCO, password) directly at a resource's web page. It is the so-called Institutional login and is available for many resources.

Portal EIZ preferably offers Shibboleth links to users accessing from a network outside of MU.

How to use Institutional login (Shibboleth)

Users can log in directly at the resource's web pages, usually under the link Institutional login or Shibboleth login. The placement of this link differs from resource to resource and we cannot provide general instructions where to find it. It is often under a general login link (Sign In, Log In etc.).

Once you find the Institutional login, you will be asked to select your federation and institution. Please select:

  • Federation (region): (Czech academic identity federation)
  • Institution: Masaryk University or Masaryk University in Brno

Next, fill in your UCO and password and can start working immediatelly.
