End of Life: IPX and Appletalk
   Original Announcement of Intent:
       TSAG Meeting, Nov & Dec 2002
   Proposed Last Date of support:
       Friday June 4 2004 (Last day of academic year)
   Reasons for the End of Life on Campus
       To reduce load on and to simplify management of Network
        Services
            IPX is 20% of load for 5% of population
       To reduce the load on NetWare/NDS® servers
       Novell and Apple have adopted pure IP
   Your tasks:
       Migrate Novell/Apple services off of IPX/Appletalk
            Need Netware 5 or above
            Need Mac OS 8.1 or above
       Provide early feedback on problems and concerns

    resources

       Location of Lab         Purpose of the Lab

FISMA Audit Preparation

   Financial Integrity and State Manager's Accountability
    (FISMA)
   Focus has been on “Mainframe” type of operations
   Higher focus on Client/Server types of operations (e.g., CMS)
   Some Emphasis this year:
       Account Lifecycle
       Access Controls: Vendors, Passwords, Audit, Review, …
       Confidentiality Protection
       DRP and BCP
       Non-Enterprise level operations (more coming in the future)
   We will starting preliminary discussions with local IT units
                                    Proposal
           Blocking Administrative Lists
   We have three types of lists
       -l@csun.edu:                    Department/Official Lists
       -c@csun.edu:                    Class Lists
       -g@csun.edu:                    General Purpose Lists
   Goal: to prevent spam on “Administrative” lists
   Tested with tsag-l@csun.edu (thanks Peter!)
   Ramification:
       Only individuals with a campus accounts can send e-mail to Administrative Lists
       Home users: use Webmail or configure e-mail client to use SMTP.csun.edu
   But “whatif” I don’t want my list blocked!
       Transform your list to a -g list (e.g.)
       Set up your list to “Reply-to” the owner
