Penn WebLogin

Penn WebLogin is the central PennKey authentication process for restricting access to web applications and static web pages. Penn WebLogin uses CoSign, a collaborative secure single sign-on (SSO) web authentication system. Penn WebLogin replaced Websec as our PennKey authentication mechanism.

For all users

When you log in to a PennKey-protected web resource at the Penn WebLogin page, you will be creating a 10-hour WebLogin session that provides access to PennKey-protected web resources without requiring you to log in for each one. When you finish working, it's essential that you log out or quit/exit your web browser to terminate the WebLogin session and ensure that no one else can access protected web resources in your name. See About Penn WebLogin for more information.

For developers and owners of applications or web pages

One of the key benefits of Penn WebLogin is ongoing performance and security reviews. It is expected that upgrades and patches will be made available periodically. These upgrades are provided from the core WebLogin development team and have undergone rigorous testing. Although not all upgrades address critical security concerns, best practices recommend that application providers maintain the most current releases of patches and filter version. ISC will provide periodic upgrade/release information to the registered owner/developer as entered in the WebLogin Management Console. It is critical to keep application owner/developer contact information updated. Please use the WebLogin Management Console to upgrade the application owner/developer information.
