Network security - remote dial-in access
- For reasons of security, management and access, all modem equipment is to be centrally located and managed by ITS
- ITS is responsible for the authentication of all remote access users
- ITS is responsible for determining the standards and equipment to be connected to the RMIT net All equipment must conform to Austel, PSTN, ISDN/ETSI signaling standards
- Remote access capacity is provided in one of two ways:
University funded (equipment funds) and available to all users.
Appropriate chargeback arrangements are implemented for ongoing operational costs
Faculty/Group funded and limited to designated user groups.
The cost includes equipment purchase, ongoing equipment maintenance, Telstra circuits and ITS facilities management. Additional costs maybe incurred in meeting network traffic requirements between the central facility and the Faculty/Group network
The use of any modem connections which may be part of RMITnet must be approved by ITS.
ITS has responsibility for the security and integrity of the RMIT wide area network. The policy is guided by RMIT and AVCC policy, and RMIT Internal Audit recommendations. As part of this, ITS is required to manage and control the access points to and from the network - this includes inter-networking and remote access services.
