Encryption is the conversion of data into a format that cannot be easily understood by unauthorized people. Decryption is the process of converting encrypted data back into its original format so it can be understood. Many Windows-based UConn computers have been encrypted with the UITS supported McAfee Endpoint Encryption (MEE) software package. About the Software »
Even though the user’s McAfee Endpoint Encryption (MEE) user name and the user’s NETID user name are the same, the passwords of these two systems are not automatically synched, more>>>!
The University currently provides multiple e-mail and calendaring solutions to its students, faculty, staff, and affiliates. The two centrally managed systems are:
Since October 2003, University Information Technology Services (UITS) has been provideing one common tool (MS Exchange) to employees and affiliates of UConn. To learn more about this e-mail and calendaring service, visit web page http://exchange.uconn.edu.
As of 2011 UITS implemented Google Apps as the student email system at the University of Connecticut. The transition from HuskyMail to Google Apps is ending this semester. What began as a voluntary opt-in in the summer of 2011 is ending on December 15, 2012. Students who have not opted in, including those who have HuskyMail forwarded, are encouraged to do so before the December 15, 2012 deadline.
New incoming students have a Google Apps account created for them. To access the account they will need to create a password by going to http://password.google.uconn.edu Their NetID and password needs to be set first as this will be needed to set the new Google Apps password.
For more information go to the following link http://google.uconn.edu/. Your email ID and password will be different than the NetID.
EXCERPT FROM "ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATION POLICY":
Any student, faculty or staff member who has been provided a University of Connecticut email account will also be issued a Personal Name alias. This will be the official address to which the University will send email communications, and the address that will be listed in the UConn Phone Book (http://phonebook.uconn.edu) and other University publications.
While the easiest way to receive electronic University communication is by using the University's email service directly, an individual may choose to have their University email redirected to another email address at his or her own risk. The University will not be responsible for the handling of email by outside vendors or by departmental servers. Having email redirected does not absolve a community member from the responsibilities associated with official communications sent to his or her University email address.
All faculty, staff and students are expected to check their University email on a frequent and consistent basis in order to ensure that they are staying current with all official communications.
Husky Course Tools
HuskyCT is the name of the online course management system used at UConn. HuskyCT can be used for a fully on-line course, but most instructors use it to augment their face-to-face course taught on campus. Instructors customize HuskyCT sites by posting class materials and choosing which of the many Course Tools to use.
Once you begin the semester, your instructor will let you know if this tool will be used in the course.
Your NetID is used as your logon id for most systems. UConn will use this ID to identify you for obtaining access for certain computing services such as: HuskyCT, SafeConnect, HuskyMail, Active Directory (AD), Exchange, Proxy, and VPN (to name a few)
SafeConnect is a replacement for the existing NetReg system and will enable the University to ensure that network devices maintain a standardized security baseline, including user authentication, antivirus, and operating system security patches. The result will be a more secure, reliable, and predictable IT operating system and network infrastructure that is easy and cost-effective to maintain, more >>>
Student Administration System
UConn's online registration system. In addition to enrolling in classes, you can access your registration appointment time, view the course catalog, search for classes, view your class schedule, advisor information, grades, unofficial transcript, charges and payments, financial aid information, and change your personal information.
Access http://www.studentadmin.uconn.edu to log in to the Student Administration System using your 7-digit UserID and password.
Please note: your Student Admin Login ID and Student Admin Password are NOT your NetID.
Use your NETID to access University restricted sites from off campus.
