CILogon Enables Streamlined InCommon Login to Globus

On February 13, Globus released their new enhanced login method that supports InCommon campus identities via CILogon's OIDC interface. Now Globus users do not need to create a separate Globus username and password for access to Globus services. Instead, Globus users can select their campus identity provider directly from the Globus login screen, taking advantage of CILogon OIDC's new selected_idp parameter. CILogon enables use of InCommon identities throughout the new Globus Auth platform.
