The document XSEDE Web SSO for Application Developers does not currently have suggestions or recommendations for signoff/logout functions. We should mention the high-level issues (should the app's logout feature also terminate the SSO session or not?) and any available options (e.g., Globus logout helper page).


There are comments for XCI-571 that can be viewed with XSEDE authentication.
