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.  

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.

Free Windows 10 Upgrade, yes indeed Windows 10 is a free upgrade for a year for computers with Windows 7 and 8 installed on them. However, Microsoft will not tell you about this in an e-mail.  Ransomware (software that will encrypt your files and then ask for money for the decryption key) has been seen being delivered through an e-mail promising a free windows 10 upgrade.  Delete these messages as you get them and do not open any attachment that you did not expect to receive.

1.4 million cars recalled for vulnerable remote control. Fiat, Chrysler, Jeep, and Dodge vehicles can possibly be controlled remotely over the Sprint network. Researchers have shown that while sitting at their desks they can take over many functions of a vehicle on the road through the onboard Infotainment system tied to the Sprint cellular network.
