What is Secure Home?

 Secure Home is a secure webpage, similar to a user portal, used by authorized users to access secure applications and tools in one location.  In order to access Secure Home, you need a personal WAMS ID and have someone grant you access to a Secure Home Application through the DPI Application Security Manager (ASM) application. Once you login to Secure Home with your WAMS ID, the applications you have access to will be listed.

Need access to a Secure Home Application?

Secure Home application security is administered by each district using the DPI Application Security Manager (ASM) application. The DPI Application Security Manager (ASM) application has three levels of security.  Most individuals will be "Level 3" security (Application User). There will be a limited amount of district "Level 2" security (Application Administrators) and district "Level 1" security (District Security Administrators).

  My district does not have access to Secure Home currently or any Secure Home Application.  How do I begin? I need the ability to assign security administators for a Secure Home Application.

Security Model Overview

The Department of Public Instruction (DPI) has many tools and applications to capture data and analyze data. The overall goal of DPI is to:

  1. Provide (when appropriate) one process to request access.
  2. Provide one application interface for security administration.
  3. Provide a secure landing page to access secure applications.
  4. Use one login ID and password to access the secure landing page.

DPI has made considerable progress on this effort. The following is now available to districts and schools:

  • We have automated the District Administrator Authorization Form to be filled out and submitted online.
  • One application interface, called the Application Security Manager or ASM, for security administration for districts and schools to manage user authorizations to secured applications.
  • A secure landing page, called Secure Home, for a user to access secured applications which they have been granted the appropriate permissions to use, including ASM.
  • One login ID and password to access the secure landing page.
    The login ID and password utilize the Wisconsin Access Management System (WAMS) for login ID and password management. A WAMS ID is needed for a user to be authenticated to access applications.

DPI requires application security to ensure compliance with all state and federal laws regarding pupil privacy and data security. Additionally, DPI’s security model is designed to allow districts and schools flexibility in assigning access based on the changing needs within their district, while promising that the data provided to DPI from school districts is being accessed only by users that the district has authorized. This gives your district control over your data while ensuring that pupil records are maintained in a secure and protected environment.
