The Identity & Access Management service provides reliable and cost-effective authentication services for access to business information through the use of WUSTL Connect (a.k.a. WUSTL Key). WUSTL Connect establishes a common ID and password that is used by students, faculty, staff, alumni and guests to access university information systems. It is a central system for users of Washington University resources.

The Identity & Access Management service uses systems that provide authentication, single sign-on, applies policies based on source system rules, integration services, data services, and limited access control. WUSTL Connect is a central system for users of Washington University resources.
