About access control

  • Basically, there are no restrictions on outside of the university network access.
  • eduroam-ID (for you/students/visitors) is treated as off-campus network. You cannot directly access to the campus systems/web pages (SSL-VPN connection is required). In addition, if a visitor uses an account (eduroam-ID, etc.) issued by the visitor's organization to connect to the eduroam network on the TUFS campus, the visitor is also treated as off-campus.。
  • Other than access to the campus server listed below, network access is blocked. If there extra access is needed, please apply for IP address, port number, etc. of the host(s) to be accessed.
    DNS server (ns, ns2) for name resolution
    Web server (www, isc-w3) both http & https
  • Authentication with JAIST-SSO is also treated as off-campus (two-factor authentication with a one-time password or digital certificate is required).

* If you connect to eduroam with a digital certificate, you will be treated as "on-campus" exceptionally.
