IRIS Network Policy

The following policy governs network connected devices in the UC Berkeley Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) department and the Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS) on networks maintained by Instructional and Research Information Systems (IRIS).

Vision: The IRIS network is a robust, state-of-the-art communication environment supporting UC Berkeley's goal of excellence in education and research. It is flexible and easy to use for a large variety of devices and supports production services reliably and securely.

This document uses prescriptive keywords such as “MUST,” “MAY,” and “SHOULD” as defined in IETF RFC 2119.

Core Network Policy

In addition to this specific policy, use of the IRIS network must comply with all existing laws (federal and state) and University regulations and policies including the UC Berkeley Campus Computer Use Policy and the Minimum Security Standards for Networked Devices.

  1. The IRIS network is available only to people with active IRIS accounts.
  2. Network devices MUST be registered with accurate information when connected to the IRIS network.
  3. Individuals MUST NOT disrupt the use of production services or run software or devices that negatively affect network operations.
