As part of the Web Central Services Retirement project, the ITS website will be retired. Information about IT services will be replaced by two new sites, IT@UT and UT ServiceNow, and ITS departmental information will be migrated to a new location. All changes will be completed by 7/28/2016.


Entitlements: SIG/IDP

Two special entitlements to be aware of as developers are IDP and SIG.

  • IDP (Identification-Proofed): this EID holder has had their identity verified, either by an authorized administrator or a notary public, through the display of a government issued photo ID.

  • SIG (Legal Signature): this EID holder has signed the UT Electronic Agreement and is therefore entitled to conduct legal transactions using their UT EID and password.

SIG/IDP and High Assurance

While assurance levels have been deprecated with the new EID system, having High Assurance can be roughly equated to having both SIG and IDP Entitlements. For more information on assurance levels and their relation to entitlements, please see EID System Assurance Level Transitions (UT EID login required).
