Subject: *** POTENTIAL SPAM *** [CIO] <PLAuth> Public Lab Authentication
The University of San Diego does not currently require logins on the
Windows and Macintosh personal computers in its public labs, and we are
preparing to do so. As we begin, we believe it might be helpful to know
if this is a common direction others have taken and, if so, the
approaches they've used.
Please take just a couple of minutes to respond to the following

include your responses in our summary, which will include both replies
to the list and replies to me directly.
