Identity Management System

To access GUtech computers, email, files, portals and databases, a User should have an ‘IT user account’ and a password, provided by IT Service (ITS) department of GUtech.

Windows Active directory (base of GUtech’s identity management system)

An AD domain controller authenticates and authorizes all users and computers in a Windows domain type network—assigning and enforcing security policies for all computers and installing or updating software. For example, when a user logs into a computer that is part of a Windows domain, Active Directory checks the submitted password and determines whether the user is authorized to use the system.

User credentials and password management

Applying for an IT account

A staff or a student can get an account for accessing IT resources at GUtech.

We do not take direct applications for creating an account. A staff member has to approach ITS through Human Recourses department. A student gets an account once enrolled in the university and account activation instructions will be part of welcome kit.

ITS also provides short term accounts (up to 6 months) for Interns who visit and work with GUtech’ s academic or admin departments, provided the application to ITS comes from HR department.

Guest account

A guest account may be provided for a visitor to GUtech for internet access but such applications should be handed over to ITS in advance through a permanent staff of GUtech.

Guest account is issued for a short duration varying from 1 day to 3 months.
