The Campus License Keyserver provides students broader access to software.
The Campus License Keyserver is offered by UW Information Technology (UW-IT) in partnership with the Student Technology Fee Committee (STFC).
This service provides a cost-effective way to provide UW students access to commercial software on campus-run workstations. Sassafras KeyServer and Key Auditor (K2) meters software for which the STFC has purchased a limited number of licenses for use on STFC-funded and UW-owned desktops, thin clients, and mobile computers dedicated for student use.
By creating a campus wide Keyserver service, the STFC is able to meter commercial software licenses they have purchased. We pool all software resources, and meter usage to remain within the number of licenses owned. K2 provides reports revealing the actual number of licenses used, enabling us to be cost efficient and renew software licenses at an appropriate amount to accommodate campus needs.
Available for use by students.
Requests for software licensing must come from departments running UW-owned, student dedicated workstations.

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.
