Windows Authentication is based on Kerberos standard authentication but with some extensions.

Your ActiveDirectory authentication is used to log in to a variety of different places:

Your account might be shown in either of these two alternate ways depending on the application you are using:

  • UMIACS\username
  • username@ad.umiacs.umd.edu
    • If you had an account prior to March 24th 2018 and your mail was handled by our Exchange service on that day, this may instead show as username@pc.umiacs.umd.edu.
