Problems Connecting to Internet Sites and Services

You may have difficulty reaching many non-Stanford websites and Internet services due to a Denial of Service (DOS) attack affecting a major Internet provider, Dyn. This issue is external to Stanford, but does affect some Stanford services, including Box, Qualtrics, BlueJeans, and Github. For updates, see the Dyn site.

If you want to connect to Stanford's IdP directly rather than participate in one of the federations, here are Stanford's IdP metadata URLs:
