What is Comcast Enterprise SSO?


Comcast Enterprise SSO (Single-sign on) enables Comcast employees and contractors’ access to SSO-enabled web applications with your Windows password. The benefits are enhanced security, convenience and user experience.

Logging in to Enterprise SSO does not provide you access to all applications. You need to have group memberships or other role memberships to access certain applications. Please contact your manager or application administrator if you need access to any application.

How long does my login last?

Some applications may prompt you to login after a period of activity or inactivity based on "timeout" settings configured. It means that your SSO session may become invalid because of these two settings:

        1. Maximum session timeout: The applications may prompt you to sign-in again after a certain time since last sign-in.
        2. Inactive timeout: This is a security precaution so that your account can not be used if you are away from your computer for a period of time

The login timeout settings for different applications vary depending on the security of the information presented on the application.

Will my password be locked out?

Yes, Comcast Enterprise SSO integrates with Windows for authentication. Windows will lockout your password after 3 invalid password attempts. You need to call Support Center if you locked out your password.

What are cookies? Do I need to enable cookies in my web browser?

HTTP cookies, more commonly referred to as Web cookies, tracking cookies or just cookies, are parcels of text sent by a server to a Web client (usually a browser) and then sent back unchanged by the client each time it accesses that server. HTTP cookies are used for authenticating, session tracking (state maintenance), and maintaining specific information about users, such as site preferences or the contents of their electronic shopping carts.

Yes, you need to accept/enable Cookies in your browser to access Comcast Enterprise SSO protected web applications.
