Login and Logout Pages

A login page is a public page accessible to anyone. As such, it can have the standard UW look for informational pages. However, a login page does two additional things:

Beyond that, the page can explain what the application does, how to obtain access, how to provide a link to a demo or training site, etc.

A logout page is accessed when a user clicks a logout button. Functionally, this action destroys any application-specific authorization and then displays the standard logout page, which is maintained by the Pubcookie team. From this page, the user will have the option to destroy the generic Pubcookie authentication they obtained by providing their UW NetId and password.
