Staff and students of Soka University can connect their devices to the Internet via university wired/wireless LAN (Local Area Network). However, we have encountered problems that some PCs which were infected with viruses attacked other PCs on the network.
To deal with this issue, we have implemented the quarantine system on our authentication network since 7th June 2007. If you would like to connect your device to the Internet via university LAN (both wired and wireless), it has to fulfill the 3 requirements listed below.
If you try to sign in with the PCs that do not fulfill these requirements, warning messages will show up, and you cannot connect your device to the Internet.
We have to protect the important data for staff and students and enhance the security level of university LAN.
We will appreciate your cooperation and understanding.
