Information Security
Identity Management Project  
Effectively managing access to PeopleSoft and other information resources is a critical component of the University's comprehensive security corrective action plan.  An Identity Management System will enable the University to manage the end-to-end lifecycle of user identities in PeopleSoft and any other web based application. An Identity Management System can be integrated into PeopleSoft Human Capital Management using workflows that will fully automate processes for removing access to the system. Other control issues that will be addressed by implementing an Identity Management System with strong authentication to include: fraud reduction, prevention of key logging, prevention of phishing/pharming exploits, and password sharing. Identity Management also includes comprehensive reporting and auditing features that can be made available to internal and external auditors.

Network Infrastructure

Core Network Upgrade – Phase 2 of the core network upgrade will enhance wireless security and the end user experience. After the upgrade is completed, the wireless network will support WPA2-Enterprise and 802.1x which will provide for easier secure authentication to the wireless network. In addition, all communication across the wireless network will be encrypted. After a device’s initial configuration, a user will no longer need to manually enter credentials when connecting to the network. The device will automatically sign into the network.
