We maintain user accounts for several different systems. While many systems use the IT-run Berkeley Lab directory for a single account, there are also accounts maintained for Windows and UNIX systems. 

Users can request the following accounts:

  • Google Apps (Gmail, etc.)
  • Windows Active Directory
  • OTP SSH Gateway (Secure Authentication for SSH)
  • SCS Cluster
