The UAnet ID system provides network identification and authentication services to students, faculty, staff, and affiliates of the University. The system is used to provision and deprovision accounts and manage passwords and other attributes. A UAnet ID is required to access most UA computing and network resources, including email and web-based services such as the Zipline portal and the Springboard learning management system.

The UAnet ID system includes OpenLDAP, Kerberos and Shibboleth components and is closely integrated with Active Directory.
