Internet2® Middleware

With such advancements in research and educational collaboration, the challenge of getting different application and network environments to work together gets more complex—that is why Internet2 has the Middleware Initiative.  Its mission is to promote interoperability in identity and access management.  In this effort, it works to promote and develop different tools such as Shibboleth for federated single sign-on, Grouper for access management, and COmanage for identity management.  With the Middleware Initiative, Internet2 strives to provide simple yet secure ways for collaboration.

Scheduled Outages

Routine Maintenance

OIT performs routine maintenance on servers and systems every Sunday from 8 a.m. to noon. Many IT services may be offline intermittently during this time. Network access and computing resources availability (Banner, E-Learning, Exchange server, etc.) may also be affected. Since this is a low-usage period, fewer UA customers will be impacted. For questions, contact the IT Service Desk at (205) 348-5555 or itsd@ua.edu.
