The Secure Computing Environment (SCE) is a secure environment that mitigates the risks of working with ePHI (electronic personal health information) and other types of high-risk data. The SCE eases the burden on the researcher of having to configure and assure that their computational work environment has been configured with the appropriate security controls and to minimize the risk of exposing high risk data. The SCE makes it easier for researchers to implement necessary safeguards for research that is subject to regulatory or compliance requirements, including but not limited to, HIPAA, FISMA, Personal Information Protection Act of Illinois and other grant specific regulations.

SharePoint is a tool for collaboration that helps groups of people (whether work teams or social groups) share information and work together. For example, SharePoint can help you:

  • Coordinate projects, calendars, and schedules.
  • Discuss ideas and review documents or proposals.
  • Share information and keep in touch with other people.

 

UIC Community can view their designated UIC site collections under one view at http://sharepoint.uic.edu

Bluestem is the primary single sign-on authentication method supported at UIC. Only UIC users can authenticate via Bluestem.

Shibboleth (SAML) is a framework that allows applications to connect to various authentication services on the Internet (including UIC's Bluestem SSO). Shibboleth can be used to allow access to your application from any Organization on the Internet that supports SAML. Conversely, it can also be used to allow UIC users access to third party applications (that support SAML) using their UIC credentials. Note that such third party applications must be registered with the InCommon Federation:

https://incommon.org

For more information regarding the yearly InCommon Federation fee structure see incommon.org/fees.html (sponsored partners).

Shibboleth Discovery Service - A discovery service is a web page that asks you to select your institution, after which you are redirected to that institution's authentication service. The discovery service for uofi.box.com (hosted by illinois.edu) for instance asks you to select one of UIUC, UIC, or UIS. If you misclicked and selected the wrong institution you can reset your selection for the illinois.edu discovery service by going to this link:

Audience: IT

A server certificate is needed to enable secure-socket layer (SSL) operation on a server (typically a web server) which verifies the server's identity to clients (typically web browsers). To avoid warning dialogs issued by web browsers, the certificate must be digitally signed by a trusted third party, a Certificate Authority (CA) such as Comodo, VeriSign, or Thawte, whose signatures are recognized by the browser. 

Audience: Faculty, Staff
