CalNetID (your ID number or user name) and passphrase.

CalNet-authenticated sites under http://inst.eecs comments for WEB site developers
Your CGI program manages the CAS session via the AuthCAS Perl module; you must code any additional session management into your CGI program; the CalNet logout button works:

The WEB server manages the CAS session via the mod-auth-cas Apache module, which you configure in a .htaccess file in the working directory; you avoid session management in the CGI program, but the CalNet logout button doesn't work. (See mod_auth_cas/README, line 116+.) CalNet sessions via mod-auth-cas time out in 30 minutes (on our server).
