Identity Management: For many years, UWdir has been the mainstay for functions related to the management of identities on campus. Later this fall, WATIAM, based on SUN's Identity Management Suite will assume that responsibility. Dave will provide a brief status report, describe the basic capabilities, lessons learned so far, and some future plans and possibilities.

Campus Wireless Upgrade: User authentication for both the wired and wireless networks is almost completely switched to the new Aruba system while the physical swap out of access points is still underway. Steve will discuss various issues that were encountered, how they were overcome and how the original design has been changed to allow for better failover and redundancy. Steve will also briefly discuss additional features that will be introduced into the wireless network once the remaining users are authenticating against the new system.
