From Provider Wiki
Welcome to the CoSign page. This page will contain links to articles which will assist application areas in the transitioning from Websec to CoSign for authenticating users for access to web applications using Penn WebLogin.
Requesting ISC Support
This is a reminder that Websec, our local PennKey-based web authentication system, will retire in December, 2009. If you have an active Websec application, that application must be modified to use the new web authentication system, WebLogin, based on Cosign. If you are running into problems trying to switch to WebLogin, ISC Networking and Telecommunications has staff that might be able to help you. To reserve some staff time please fill out our form available at:
Staff time is limited and it's first come, first served.
If you haven't assessed your needs for transitioning yet, please take a look at:
Self Provisioning Application Name Change
In order to support future strategic initiatives, ISC has rename the CoSign Self Provisioning Application (CSPA) the WebLogin Management Console (WMC). Numerous enhancements to the application will be implemented in the near future to improve the registration and administrative requirements of system administrators and web developers.
Penn WebLogin Migration Progress
To date, approximately 27% of the initial 351 Websec registered applications have migrated to Penn WebLogin (CoSign). Given the slower than anticipated progress, and in an effort to raise broader awareness, the Penn WebLogin team will expand the delivery of the progress report to include the membership of IT Roundtable (ITR). Beginning with the June status report, as required, Deke Kassabian, Senior Director of Network Engineering and Services, will be available to provide updates to ITR on the current migration completion percentage. Related updates will be provided directly to IT Directors of School and Centers so that they can track progress in their own areas.
Penn WebLogin Upgrade Requirements
One of the key benefits of Penn WebLogin (CoSign) 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 CoSign 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 and developer as entered in the CoSign Self Provisioning Application. It is critical to keep application register/owner and developer contact information updated. The notification will indicate that a new release is available and whether or not the upgrade is mandatory for addressing security concerns.

Wiki Documentation Feedback
The documentation available on this wiki is constantly being updated based on the feedback received from development teams implementing CoSign. As has been consistently communicated, due to the distributed environment and extensive web development platforms in use, it is critical that we receive constructive feedback on the documentation. Please remember to submit any suggestions/code samples/advice which could benefit University development teams. All feedback can be submitted to mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org indicating that the submission is for CoSign documentation feedback.
