User Authentication Service Maintenance

by on March 27, 2016

Beginning at 4:00 am Monday, March 28, 2016, for approximately 15 minutes, NJIT’s user authentication service (Shibboleth) will undergo maintenance. Access to the following services will be interrupted during maintenance: Moodle, NJIT Go Mobile, MAP-Works, 25 Live, CDSLink, Activity Insight for Faculty.

As part of maintenance the login page will receive a new look (see below). For the protection of your account, when logging in through new login page for the first time, please read all details included on the login page.

Given the nature of this maintenance we would like to remind the community of the following:

  • Always be wary of electronic solicitations where you are asked to provide personally identifiable information or accounts and/or passwords. Providing such information may result in identity theft, which can be expensive to resolve, detrimental to your credit rating, and extremely inconvenient.
  • Never open attachments or click on links within an email unless you trust the source.
  • NJIT will never ask you to REPLY to an e-mail with private information (SSN, date of birth, user IDs/passwords).
  • NJIT log-on credentials will only be asked at the legitimate point of entry to a NJIT system (e.g. Highlander Pipeline, Moodle, Webmail by Google) when you have actively initiated entry to the system. Be wary of providing log-in credentials unless you have initiated the action.
  • Always use strong passwords and change them on a regular basis.

If you have questions or suspect you may have been victimized by one of these scams, please contact the IST Help Desk at (973) 596-2900.
