Custom IT Consulting Services for Healthcare IT Challenges

Gilbert, AZ – May 11, 2016— Unicon, Inc., a leading IT consulting, services, and support provider specializing in open source software, today announced the completion of identity and access management (IAM) services for Vecna Technologies, Inc., an innovator of patient-centric healthcare IT solutions. Vecna enlisted Unicon to complete custom consulting services for Central Authentication Service (CAS), open source web single sign-on (SSO) technology, and Shibboleth, open source federated web SSO technology. 

“Vecna worked with Unicon to provide our client with the SSO authentication mechanisms required for their custom CAS deployments,” said Michael Daitzman, Director of Product Development for Patient Solutions at Vecna. “While this work was done with a specific customer in mind, it was done in a way that would scale across our platform. As a result, millions of patients worldwide will have convenient access to our online self-service platform.” 

Each of Vecna’s clients uses a different, customized deployment of CAS. Vecna enlisted Unicon to help integrate SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) with these custom deployments of CAS. Unicon assisted Vecna in configuring the SAML authentication handler so that each client’s CAS deployment would properly integrate with their SAML Identity Provider (IdP). Unicon used a Shibboleth IdP for testing these integrations. Services included CAS and Shibboleth IdP installation and configuration; SAML/ CAS integrations; and the extension of Vecna’s CAS environment to support third-party SAML authentication.
