Personal, shared (course or departmental), sponsored, and temporary identification required for access to UW online resources
The UW NetID service provides ways for the UW community to create and manage digital identities and the UW. UW NetIDs are used for authentication, accounts, email addresss, and other computing purposes where unique identification is required. There are different types of UW NetIDs to support a diversity of needs, including Personal, Shared, Temporary, and Admin UW NetIDs.
Personal UW NetIDs
A UW NetID (with password) is your personal identification for using UW online resources. With a personal UW NetID, you can access computing services available to you based on your association with the UW (i.e. student, faculty, staff, alumni, retiree, or other affiliate).
Your computing services may include Web interfaces used to:
Access your MyUW page, from which you can check your personal UW informaiton (e.g. grades, class schedules, employee payroll records and benefits)
Turn on UW email accounts with forwarding options, along with other computer services (e.g. lab access, research computing, Web publishing)
Access secure aplications required for university administrative work (e.g. financial, payroll, and student databases)
Give UW alumni access to computing services

Forwarding accounts for email forwarding
Temporary UW NetIDs

The UW Windows Infrastructure (UWWI) is a set of infrastructure capabilities enabling Microsoft technologies. In many cases, the infrastructure capabilities meet business needs regardless of the client platform or technology.
NETID Domain service. Provides Active Directory Domain Services with integrated UW NetIDs and Groups service groups.
Domain trusts. UW organizations with an existing domain can request a one-way incoming trust to leverage the authentication, authorization, and directory services provided.
Delegated OUs. UW organizations can manage and join their computers to the NETID domain service. They retain autonomy and avoid the cost of running their own Windows domain.
Name resolution services.
Netbios name resolution via WINS. Available to anyone on campus.
Dynamic DNS (DDNS) zone services. Available to Delegated OU customers only. No reverse DNS capability.
Microsoft license activation. Provides Microsoft product activation service via a Microsoft Key Management Server (KMS) tied to the campus agreement.
LDAP based authentication, authorization, and directory services for application integration (this capability is available, but in containment)
Federated authentication. ADFS provides logon tokens for Microsoft centric applications that can cross enterprises boundaries. We run this capability in partnership with the Authentication service.
Azure Active Directory. This component provides multiple capabilities based on emerging technologies and has likely changed in signficant ways since we wrote this. Among the capabilities are:
OpenID/OAuth2/SAML/WS-Federation based authentication
SaaS application portal with tightly integrated authentication
The services entitled Authentication, Access Management, Directory Services, UW NetID, and Campus DNS all have overlapping capabilities with this service. In some cases, there is tight integration with those other infrastructure services.
