The CAS Protocol Revision Working Group is collaborating on updating the CAS Protocol such that it:
- is consistent with current Jasig CAS 3.x server behavior (de facto standard), and adds
- attributes to CAS payload (a common customization)
The current status of the 3.0 spec draft can be found in the official GitHub repository at
The working draft is in Google Docs: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1l0o60mLfXF4bkQdwRSH4i6P-IJQki3-v-zyoOAjxDd4/edit
The main work of covering all the current (3.x) features is completed, but needs review and discussion. The following is a brief summary of what was added:
- /login parameters "METHOD", "rememberMe",
- /logout parameter "service" with a description of its implication to the behaviour
- SLO completely added. Also with an on section 4 which briefly describes the Single Log Out feature and security implications.
- cas attributes in responses
- /proxyValidate added
- /samlValidate added (it is currently in 3.5, which this CAS Spec covers. In 4.0, this might be removed - to be discussed)
