Welcome to CalNet Identity and Access Management

Here you can establish an online identity — your CalNet ID and associated passphrase — which you can then use to access many UC Berkeley online services.

CalNet is based on Kerberos technology, so you will sometimes see references to Kerberos principals and passphrases. In the UC Berkeley context, these are the same as CalNet IDs and passphrases.

CAS URLs for UC Berkeley

Be safe! Check the URL!

When logging in to UC Berkeley websites, you are prompted to authenticate with your CalNet ID and passphrase. Don’t fall victim to scammers and spammers trying to capture your login credentials! Always check the URL of websites you log in to. Legitimate sites will contain in the web address.

A second way to make sure a site is legit is to look for the EV Cert inside the address bar. It appears as a green bar with a lock icon and our institution’s name. This green bar certifies that you are safe to proceed. Find out more about the EV Cert, here.
