IDMS (O-Key) Account Services
IDMS (O-Key) is the identity account of each individual who has a formal affiliation with Oklahoma State University. The O-Key credentials - Banner ID, O-Key username, email address, and password - are joined in the O-Key account to provide secure single sign-on access to IT and other services. Administratively, O-Key is used to manage access to services based upon the roles of each individual associated with OSU.
The O-Key credentials are used throughout the IT systems and many others to provide
secure single sign-on access to IT services such as my.okstate.edu, the Software Distribution
Center, Virtual Labs, the wireless network, Canvas, and many others. This information
ties to the ID card for access to campus point-of-sale purchases, authorized controlled
access doors, and more.
