InCommon Federation

The University of Kentucky is a member of InCommon, a coalition of US education and research communities supporting a common federated identity management framework. This Federation allows the UK Community to login to certain resources using their linkblue credentials (userid and password), instead of obtaining a separate userid and password for each site. The following websites and resources are available to the UK Community through InCommon:

  • TeraGrid (now XSEDE) — Go to https://go.teragrid.org/. Select University of Kentucky from the drop down menu next to the Login button. Click Login and you will get a UK-branded login page. Login with your linkblue credentials. The first time you do this you will need your XSEDE credentials, too. After logging in, you'll get a message that your identity is associated with your XSEDE username. You can perform all of your regular XSEDE functions from that portal.
  • Research.gov — Go to https://research.gov/. Select Login as InCommon from the drop down menu next to the Login button and click Login. Select University of Kentucky from the drop down menu and click Login. Finally, login with your linkblue credentials.
  • Educause — Go to https://educause.edu/. Click the Login button in the top right corner, then click the Login Using InCommon button near the bottom of the page. Find the University of Kentucky icon and click it. You will get a UK-branded login page. Login with your linkblue credentials. The first time you do this you'll need to map your campus (linkblue) credentials with your existing Educause profile.
  • DMPTool (Data Management Plan Tool) — Go to https://dmp.cdlib.org/. Click the Login button in the top right corner, then select University of Kentucky from the drop down menu. Select New User or Returning User and click Login. You will get a UK-branded login page. Login with your linkblue credentials.
  • ALEKS (University of Kentucky Math Placement through ALEKS) — Go to http://www.aleks.com/uky. Login with your linkblue credentials.
