University of Miami Information Technology (UMIT) is implementing a new authentication method for wired devices — those that connect to the Internet through a physical connection — over the next few months. The 802.1x security enhancement, which will help validate and ensure authorized access to our UM network, is being rolled out building by building across all campuses. Details on the specific buildings being updated are available at the UM Network Update: 802.1x Authentication news webpage.
After the update, you will be prompted to enter your CaneID and password to gain access to the UM network. If you are not prompted to enter your credentials, please visit http://nac.miami.edu for more information and ensure your computer is configured for 802.1x authentication. For devices not capable of performing 802.1x authentication (e.g., gaming consoles), please utilize the Network Device Registration Portal to register them for access.
If you experience any issues authenticating, or have any questions or concerns, please contact the UMIT Service Desk at 305-284-6565 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
