Sharing and Collaboration Controls Schedule

Updated June 15, 2023

Project Schedule

We are now in Phase IV of the Wired Network Access Control (NAC) deployment. The project spans several months, and dates will update as more campus areas are scheduled.

Security protections include:

  1. Identity verification. All users, including guests, authenticate (verify identity) when connecting to the ECU wired network.
  2. Device compliance. User devices must be compliant with security policies.
  3. Sharing and Collaboration. Department equipment like servers and network-attached storage (NAS) are assigned an individual network segment isolated from other segments, reducing risk in the event of a security breach. Access policies make shared network resources like printers available to users, but computer-to-computer sharing is prohibited.
    If your department has these types of equipment, submit the ECU Wired Network support request before your department's transition to ensure the equipment is added to the appropriate segment.
  4. Student employee accounts. A student employee's employment status must be up to date in Banner. This ensures the student receives proper network access.

This is a campus-wide project with current buildings and dates listed below. Buildings and dates are added as we move to subsequent phases of the project.
