The login screen for the campus CalNet authentication system is getting a new look on October 20th, 2015. The new CalNet login screen has a clean, modern design and uses Berkeley-branded design elements and fonts. More importantly, it offers improved security.
The new CalNet login screen uses an Extended Validation Certificate that will allow you to more easily recognize when a CalNet screen is real or fake.
To identify a real CalNet login screen, just look at the address bar. If you see a long green bar with our institution’s name ("University of California, Berkeley (Regents of the Univ. of CA)[US]"), you are safe to proceed.
The screenshot below shows what the new CalNet login screen looks like in Chrome.
You can see what it will look like in your own web browser by navigating to https://auth-test.berkeley.edu.
Check out the new CalNet login screen now so you aren’t surprised on October 20th!
