Touchstone Authentication

MIT Touchstone is a single sign-on web authentication service that allows members of the MIT community to log in to participating MIT and federated web sites using their MIT credentials. When using a Touchstone-enabled application, your credentials will never be passed to the application service.

Encryption

Encryption is a method of securing data by scrambling the bits of a computer's files so that they become illegible. The only method of reading the encrypted files is by decrypting them with a key; the key is unlocked with a password.

Data Discovery

Data discovery is the activity of finding where sensitive data resides so that it can be adequately protected or securely removed. IS&T distributes Spirion (formerly Identity Finder), a software tool that can easily retrieve electronic data stored on computers and servers.

win.mit.edu Windows Domain

win.mit.edu is an IS&T centrally-maintained Microsoft Windows domain intended for general use by all of MIT. It provides a common set of services, data, and tools. Many aspects and features within this domain are customizable by participating Departments, Labs, and Centers (DLCs) and, in certain cases, individual users.
