CalNet Authentication

Register for CalNet authentication

You may have already done this. Before you launch your site, you must register your domain with the CalNet admin team. It is not necessary to register your dev or test URLs; those have been preregistered for everyone.

For new sites, we recommend registering as soon as you have decided what your permanent domain will be. For sites moving to Pantheon, we recommend that you register before you fill out the offsite hosting request form.

Use CalNet Authentication for UC Berkeley sites

We strongly recommend using CalNet authentication for all UC Berkeley sites. It is more secure than standard authentication.

We have preregistered ALL UC Berkeley Pantheon development and test URLs with the CalNet admin team. It is not necessary to register individual dev and test sites. We have also preregistered ALL live environments using their live-EXAMPLE.pantheon.berkeley.edu URLs. You still have to register your actual production domain (in the form EXAMPLE.berkeley.edu) with CalNet before you launch.
