UMIT Security: Wireless Network Update

March 24, 2014 — Coral Gables, FL —

The University of Miami’s Information Technology (UMIT) team continues to work to improve security and the wireless experience for the University community. As of Tuesday, April 15th, the SecureMD2 wireless network will be disabled and will be unavailable at all campuses. All faculty, staff, and students will continue to have access to SecureCanes and UHealth, secure wireless networks available on the Coral Gables, Miller School (Medical), and Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science (RSMAS) campuses.

All UM users are encouraged to use SecureCanes or UHealth for all wireless activity effective immediately. These wireless networks provide encryption for wireless communications, making it safer to use wireless devices such as laptops, smartphones, and tablets. To access these networks you will be required to enter your CaneID and password (please see the links to instructions below for additional assistance).

Please be advised that the WirelessCanes wireless network will be the only open network (does not require a password) and is designated for University guests. We strongly caution faculty, staff, and students against using WirelessCanes for any business or medical use, as these are unencrypted connections.

Listed below are links to instructions on how to connect to the SecureCanes and UHealth wireless networks:


If you have any questions or trouble connecting to the SecureCanes or UHealth wireless networks, please contact the UMIT Service Desk: Coral Gables/RSMAS Campuses: (305) 284-6565, .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address), or Medical Campus: (305) 243-5999, .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
