MIT Touchstone is a single sign-on web authentication service that allows members of the MIT community to log in to participating MIT and federated websites. When using a Touchstone-enabled application, your password will never be passed to the application server.

Available To 
Students, Faculty, Staff, Affiliates

Benefits and key features


  • An existing MIT Kerberos username/password or MIT X.509 certificate.
  • Not an MIT student, staff, faculty, or eligible affiliate? You may be able to use an account with another member of the InCommon Federation to access some MIT Touchstone-enabled applications; otherwise, register for a Collaboration Account to access some applications.
