  • Identity is a Java program and so you need to have Java installed on your computer. Java is often pre-installed on many computers and can be downloaded free of charge here.
  • Identity is a web-enabled program and so needs to have access to the internet to function. It communicates with the website using the standard port 80 which is enabled in most institutes. If you do not have access to the internet, please let us know; we may consider modifying the software to enable off-line processing.
