How would I know if my CalNet credentials were compromised?

You may not always know. Scams and malware that steal passwords are designed to be stealthy and unnoticed. Passwords are most frequently compromised one of three ways: Being tricked to giving up your credentials at a real-looking but scam website (AKA Phishing) Malware or other compromises of your device which installs software designed to run in the background and steal passphrases Re-using CalNet credentials for non-UCB websites, and the non-UCB websites are hacked and all credentials exposed

However, a couple of tell-tale signs of credential compromise are:

Where do I find additional Information about Cloud Services?

For evaluating cloud service providers that handle P4 data on behalf of the University, the Information Security Office offers the Vendor Security Assessment Program (VSAP). The VSAP is intended to ensure that campus third-party service providers adhere to the same baseline level of security practices required for campus systems and applications that contain protected information and are managed and maintained by internal campus resources.

To request a VSAP evaluation for a P4...

How do I know if my intended use of service is in compliance with University policies?

The distinction here is that just because there is a contract in place with a supplier doesn't mean that it is appropriate for all use cases.

An example is our Google agreement which will meet the overwhelming majority of our needs in the e-mail/calendar space, but that is not HIPAA compliant and as such is not a good fit for use cases where Protected Health Information is in play. For assistance with IT policy questions, contact security-policy@berkeley.edu.

I've received an "IP address to transfer" message.

Here we explain what it means and what you need to do.

You've received the message because Socreg has encountered a mismatch between the security contact that claimed an IP address (individually or by subnet) and the security contact that registered a subdomain.

(Note: In Socreg the assignment of a subdomain enables the transfer of IP address responsibility to the right party, but does not assign security contact responsibility).

For example, if security contact A registers a subdomain xyz.berkeley.edu and another security contact B claims subnet a.b.c.0/24 and there is a set of hostnames defined...
