Impact of the change on users:
Little to no impact is expected for current users and devices. However, during maintenance, there may be intermittent periods in which no new devices (mydevices.gmu.edu) can be added nor can guest wireless accounts be created. Network authentication and authorization services will not be impacted.
Reason for change:
ITS is upgrading and applying security patches to the Identity Services Engine (ISE) Policy Service Node (PSN) and Primary Administration Nodes (PAN) to address security issues. ISE simplifies the delivery of consistent, highly secure access control across wired and wireless networks and remote VPN connections. (ID # 166572 & 166587)
