Server Registration Guidelines:
Servers are integral to many computer systems and networks. By their nature, they provide special challenges to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of computer and network resources.
A server is defined as any device that provides computing service to multiple computers or individuals. See NDUS Procedure 1901.2, Section 1.
All servers on the NDSU networks or operated by NDSU entities must be registered with the Vice President for Information Technology (VPIT).
All servers are subject to established NDUS and NDSU policies, procedures,and standards.
- NDUS Policy and Procedure 1901.2
- NDSU Policy 710, Computer and Electronic Facilities
- NDSU Policy 158, Acceptable Use for Electronic Communication Devices
To register a server, it (the server) must be compliant with NDSU Server Standards. A "Request to Register a Server" form must be completed and submitted to the Chief IT Security Officer. The registration process needs to be completed before a static IP number can be assigned to the server.

An E-Mail will be sent to the Network Engineering and Operations team, after that the security team will be in contact with you to request a time to do an initial server audit, once that has been completed an email will be sent to you stating the IP address that has been assigned to your device. In most instances this will be done through our DHCP service and you will not need to statically assign your IP address.

There are lots of automated scripts already running on the Internet looking for keywords that are posted to social media, these scripts do everything from changing the word "meet" to "meat" and posting the results to twitter, to alerting potential thieves that a family is now on vacation and away from their house. Be safe on social media

When you download an app on social media or your mobile device, you may be allowing it to collect personal information like your contacts list or location. If possible, look at an app’s permissions before downloading and make sure you are comfortable with the information it collects. If the app does not tell you what information it collects, error on the side of caution and assume that it may be collecting information.
