The Office of Information Technology will be implementing a new security authentication process for all University wireless and University Housing residence networks this coming Tuesday, October 16.
This new authentication process, known as "Clean Access," ensures computers connecting to the University's wireless and University Housing residence networks meet a minimum standard of security in order to protect the integrity of the University’s networked systems, as well as provide enhanced data security and privacy to the campus community.
Computers with Microsoft Windows operating systems connecting to the University Housing residence network and the University's wireless network will be required to download and install Clean Access software to gain access to University network resources and the Internet.
More information on Clean Access software installation and authentication can be found on the Office of Information Technology’s Help Desk's website at http://helpdesk.boisestate.edu/wireless
If you have any questions or concerns about the Clean Access authentication process, University wireless or residence hall network connections and policies, please call the OIT Help Desk at 426-4357, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
The following announcement will also impact wireless access at Albertsons Library:
Check this FAQ for more information and additional options for wi-fi access around campus.
Oct. 9October 16, computers connecting to the university network in residence halls and via the campus wireless network will be required to use a security and privacy authentication process called Clean Access.
Users of a Windows operating system will be required to install Clean Access Agent software on their computers. Macintosh and Linux systems will not be required to install the Clean Access Agent software at this time. This small application will verify to the network that the user’s laptop (on wireless) or computer (in student housing) is running a current version of anti-virus and that he/she has the recommended security software updates from Microsoft.
Clean Access only identifies vulnerabilities existing on computers and recommends and instructs computer owners how to fix those vulnerabilities in order to be granted access to the university network. For more information visit helpdesk.boisestate.edu/cleanaccess.shtml.
