On Saturday, May 16th Information Technology Services (ITS) will upgrade our Active Directory (AD) system to the latest version. The AD is used by many different systems for authenticating users and/or confirming that a user is authorized to access that system. There will be brief, sporadic outages of the Dartmouth Secure and Eduroam wireless networks due to this work. The work will begin at 7:00 a.m. We anticipate it to be complete by 8:00 p.m.
On Wednesday, April 22nd, the Dartmouth Web Authentication (WebAuth) system will have a new look. People use the WebAuth system to log into many web-based applications and systems with their NetID and password. This change improves the login process by presenting screens that are less cluttered, easier to use, and scalable for many different types of devices (computers, smartphones, etc). See http://www.dartmouth.edu/comp/help/webauth.html for more information.
As part of our ongoing commitment to protecting your data and identity within the Dartmouth Community, Information Technology Services will make several changes in the coming months to improve the security of Dartmouth’s data, as well as the usability of systems that protect our data. These include changes to the VPN, WebAuth, many web-based applications, and BWA, as well as the introduction of new services. For additional information see www.dartmouth.edu/comp/help/secure.html.
We are rolling out several new services to the Dartmouth community in 2015. For additional information, see http://www.dartmouth.edu/comp/help/2015services.html.

Dartmouth students, faculty, and staff can get a complete version of Microsoft Office for free to use for as long as they're an active student, faculty, or staff member at Dartmouth. See Microsoft Office for more information.
Eduroam (education roaming) is the secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community. It allows students, researchers and staff from participating institutions to obtain Internet connectivity when visiting other participating institutions by simply opening their laptop and connecting to the Eduroam wireless network that is now available at many institutions. See http://www.dartmouth.edu/comp/internet/wireless/eduroam.html for more information.
