Form-based Authentication Rolls Out on MyUCDavis, Geckomail

In mid-April, a new form-based authentication method, called UC Davis Secure Login, was implemented on the MyUCDavis Web portal and Geckomail. This Web application allows users to authenticate to secured sites without storing user information in the Web browser. The application also completes an effective log-out from the secured site, which was not previously available with Web browser authentication.

Since the rollout, the Banner team has expressed interest in using the form for authentication to SISWEB, and discussions are underway to determine if Banner may be the next group to implement this improved authentication method. For more information about UC Davis Secure Login, see
