Wireless Networking Policy

117 KB | 3 files | null PDF,null DOC

This sample wireless networking policy will give you insight into how a very large organization-a University system with several campuses-governs who can establish a wireless link to the network, and how.

Wireless networking offers increased convenience for mobile users. However, wireless networking introduces significant additional risks not associated with wired networks (e.g., exposing the network and its traffic to unauthorized parties external to the physical space within which it is deployed).

If not deployed and configured correctly, wireless networking can cause service interruptions and make network problems difficult or impossible to isolate and identify. In addition, if wireless networking services are not properly secured, unauthorized users may be able to access the university network or to monitor network traffic. The installation of these devices must therefore be managed and coordinated.

University Information Technology Services (UITS) and regional campus counterparts are responsible for the university's data, video, and voice communications network. This includes designing, deploying, documenting, monitoring, maintaining, supporting, and troubleshooting the physical data, video, and voice networks of the university, as well as the management of the Internet Protocol (IP) address spaces assigned to Indiana University (including public and private addresses).

This policy applies to all users of Indiana University information technology resources regardless of affiliation, and irrespective of whether those resources are accessed from on-campus or off-campus locations.
