The Remote Patron Authentication System (RPAS) is the KLN Hub’s answer to the diverse authentication methods required by the educational database industry. RPAS provides IP authentication for on-campus patrons and any Shibboleth-supported authentication method for off-campus users.

The latest version of RPAS includes several new features and improvements to enhance institutional control and compatibility with existing Single-Sign-On solutions:

  • EZProxy management interface
  • Institutional controls for power users
  • Shibboleth compatibility
  • Configuration checkpoint system
  • Enhanced backend management interface


There is a helpful RPAS/Ezproxy links page that contains all links related to further information and instructions for setting up RPAS links.
