LMS Security in the Brightspace Platform

  • The Brightspace platform supports Single Sign On (SSO) and integration with various authentication solutions including Active Directory, LDAP, Kerberos, CAS and SAML.

  • Client connection to the Brightspace platform is via TLS cryptographic protocols with RSA® encryption, so client data is transferred securely.

  • The application is developed and tested following principles and guidelines from the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) Top Ten framework to help ensure Brightspace is a secure platform.

  • System and client data are backed up on a regular basis using asynchronous encrypted data transfer to offsite storage to ensure that client services can be restored in the event of a disaster.
