Minimum Network Security Standards

Find out how to comply with security standards for any device connected to the UC San Diego network.

Because of the growing risk from worm, virus, or other computer attacks on UC San Diego's information technology infrastructure, sensitive data, and business processes, the IT Services Security team has developed network security standards that cover the range of devices connected to the UC San Diego network, including:
  • Shared, publicly accessible computers
  • Printers, network scanners, network faxes, webcams, and other network appliances
  • Clients and servers that participate in sensitive activities
  • Clients, servers, and virtual machine (VM) host systems connected to, or part of, life-sustaining medical equipment, treatment delivery systems, Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition, and heavy machinery control systems

The network security standards are listed in Exhibit B of the Network Security Policy.

To receive announcements about tools, training, or clarification of these standards, subscribe to the Security-Discuss-L email list.
