For all Charles University employees, students, and external users (Charles University identity card holders), an account is automatically created in the Central Authentication Services of the Charles University (CAS). This account enables access to central university applications (especially the Charles University Information System) and can be also linked to computer networks at faculties in such a way that users have just one username and passwords for all networks and applications of the Charles University.
Central authentication service offers:
the acquisition of a login name and password,
verification of identity needed to access sensitive systems,
possibility of resetting a forgotten password,
synchronisation of an account with faculty systems,
he setting of password in some other applications (such as eduroam),
the possibility of using the university account to access external services via the eduID federation.
