On 8am on Thursday, February 10th, we will be upgrading the single sign-on software that provides authentication to various CAT supplied MCECS web services. The change should only affect:

  • intranet.cecs.pdx.edu – the MCECS Intranet for IT services
  • services.cecs.pdx.edu – the portal for card access, printer fees, and locker rentals
  • dbclass.cecs.pdx.edu – for CS students in certain database classes
  • access to general MCECS database services for users – https://cat.pdx.edu/services/web/databases/

After the switch, you may need to refresh any browser tabs to these sites and re-authenticate. This does not require any password changes. The new authentication still requires the same information but will look a bit different.

We don’t expect this change to affect the use of any of these sites. If you encounter any problems, please contact us.
