Purdue Career Account: Secure Purdue Token - BoilerKey

The BoilerKey is a convenient means of significantly improving the security of protected computer systems. The BoilerKey is a small electronic device that displays a series of six digits that change every sixty seconds. A personal identification number, combined with the six digits, are used in place of a password to gain access to computer applications and systems. To learn more about this offering, please visit the IAMO BoilerKey page.

Door Access Application

The IAMO Door Access Application provides a mechanism to automate the provisioning of door access on campus. Working with the Card Services Office, ID card swipe access to various doors on campus is automatically managed based on current, offical university data. Since access is driven from current, offical university data, door access is automatically removed once someone leaves Purdue.

The process also allows employees to be manually added to a given door. Once added, these manual additions are also transmitted electronically to the Card Service Office.

For further information about the Door Access Application, please contact the IAMO Team.

InCommon Certificate Service

The InCommon Cert Service provides unlimited SSL, EV, personal signing, encryption and code signing PKI certificates for Purdue University needs.

More information can be found at the IAMO Incommon Cert Service page.

Student Organization Accounts

Like faculty, staff and students, all student organizations recognized by Purdue University can request a Purdue career account. To learn more about this offering, please visit the Student Organization Accounts page.
