If you are already familiar with Identity Finder, you may know that it reports information from your computer to a "console," an SAS-owned server that collects information and helps us track the implementation of Identity Finder across campus.

The information stored in the console never includes the sensitive data; it contains information about where sensitive data was found, and what was done about it (ie, was it securely deleted or "shredded," was it moved to a secure file server, etc).

For a user who doesn't want Identity Finder to communicate even that much information, Identity Finder can run in "silent" mode which communicates to the console only that Identity Finder has been installed. This much information is required to comply with the University licensing agreement with the vendor.
