Disclaimer

This software will periodically contact servers in the Carnegie Mellon University Computing Services infrastructure to check for updates and configuration changes. In the process of doing so, the software will send one of two sets of information to these servers, depending on the download option (Personal Computer vs. Carnegie Mellon Computer) you choose.

Information will only be sent if/when you are connected to the Carnegie Mellon University network (wired, wireless, VPN, etc.).


Personal Computer Option
If you select the Personal Computer Download, Identity Finder will send the following information:

  • System platform (Mac, Windows, etc.)
  • The hostname (name of the computer)
  • The version of the client software
  • All IP addresses currently in use by the computer
  • All ethernet (MAC) addresses of the computer
  • Date of the last contact with the server
  • Date of the last scan

Carnegie Mellon Computer Option
If you select the Carnegie Mellon Computer Download, Identity Finder will send the following information:

  • System platform (Mac, Windows, etc.)
  • The hostname (name of the computer)
  • The version of the client software
  • All IP addresses currently in use by the computer
  • All ethernet (MAC) addresses of the computer
  • Date of the last contact with the server

Note: The Information Security Office recommends selecting the ‘Carnegie Mellon Computer’ download for CMU-owned computers that are used to access enterprise data like employee data, student data, and donor data. The additional information will be used to monitor personally identifiable information (PII) disclosure risk, assist community members in reducing PII disclosure risk, and optimize incident response processes.
