UMIT to Roll Out New Authentication for Wired Devices


Wired_NetworkUniversity 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 itsupportcenter@miami.edu.

Security Awareness Tip for February: Beware Tech Support Pop-Up Scams


Cyber-crime is proving to generate huge profits for criminals everywhere, so it’s no secret that hackers are getting more sophisticated with their attacks. A new type of cyber-attack, which mimics the telephone support scams we’ve seen in the past, uses intimidation and scare tactics to induce panic and gain access to your computer. Imagine you are browsing the internet when all of a sudden a window pops up with an alarming message: “Your identity has been compromised! Call now for immediate assistance!” If you  call this number, a person will request your username and password to login to your computer and “remotely assist” you. Once connected, they have unlimited access to all of the data on your computer and they may then prompt you for your credit card information to pay for their services.

Don’t become a victim to this type of cyber-attack! Contact UMIT at 305-243-5999 immediately if you receive one of these pop-up messages or believe  your computer may already be compromised. The best way to protect yourself is to understand what caused your computer to become “infected” in the first place. Read more about pop-up scams to learn about essential steps and precautions to take while browsing the web, clicking links, and even checking your email.
