Network Port Policy

Enacted by FACIL on September 25, 2003

The CS Department maintains two classes of networks, referred to as "trusted" and "self-managed". Both networks are located behind the department's main firewall providing equal protection from the greater internet. However, the "self-managed" network is logically separated from the "trusted" network. This provides the ability to block a compromised machine on the "self-managed" network from affecting machines on the "trusted" network.

If a machine is not managed by the tstaff, it will be restricted to the "self-managed" network and is subject to the following provisions:

Exceptions to this policy by approval of Technical Staff/FACIL only.
