Realm Encryption Types
The authentication database can be partitioned into authentication realms. This capability was included to give departments flexibility in choosing an authentication security policy consistent with their needs. One authentication realm is special: the Purdue realm will include all students, staff and faculty who exist in the PUID database and who have coordinated career accounts. Currently, the I2A2 alias and password are borrowed from the coordinated career account login name and password; however, this may change in the future.
