On Wednesday, June 27, 2018, SCS Computing Facilities staff will perform maintenance on the Kerberos authentication servers (KDCs) to apply routine software security updates.  These servers provide authentication for UNIX logins, WebISO, and most SCS services.

Please contact us with any questions or concerns regarding this maintenance period.
