Network authentication

  • About introducing quarantine network system

  • First of all

    It is possible for staff and students of SOKA University to connect to the internet via university LAN (Local Area Network) such as Wi-Fi and cable.
    However, until now, we have had problems that some PCs that infected with a virus attacked the other PCs.

    To deal with the problems, we had introduced a quarantine system on our network authentication since 7th June 2007. Therefore,
    if you connect to the internet via cable or university LAN, PCs have to fulfill these 3 requirements forwards below.

    ・Applied the latest Windows Update
    ・Installed anti-virus software
    ・Installed the latest virus definition files

    If you try to sign in PCs which have not fulfilled with these conditions, warning window will show up in user authentication and cannot connect to the internet.

    We have to protect the important data for staff and students and enhance the security level of university LAN.
    Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
