SoftPhone Upgrade to Jabber
Beginning July 27, Cisco Jabber will be deployed to all HQ users using a phased approach. Jabber is the first of several telecommunication upgrades coming to HQ and replaces the current Cisco SoftPhone software. Jabber allows you to make and receive telephone calls using your NASA-issued computer. Demos and hands-on workshops will be available for both Windows and Mac users. Current Softphone users with a SoftPhone account will use the same log-in credentials to log in to Jabber. A NAMS request is required for new accounts. Training is strongly recommended for all users. Visit the Jabber Training Web page for dates, times, and registration information.

RSA SecurID Token Phase-Out Effort
As part of a strategic objective to enhance PIV smartcard usage, the ITCD is continuing the effort to reduce the number of RSA SecurID Tokens in phases. The ultimate goal is to resolve all exceptions (i.e., the technical need to use a token) and eliminate tokens altogether. This will provide cost savings to HQ, ensure compliancy with federal mandates for improved security, and allow users to take advantage of advanced technologies available. Future efforts will focus on how smartcard replaces the need for tokens and how smartcard options are being enabled for the exception categories to support the elimination of tokens. All users are encouraged to turn in tokens that are no longer utilized. Contact Jeff Anderson, 358-1348.
Collection Dates/Times: Monday-Friday, 7 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Location: Room 4G76
