Security and Privacy: Workstation Authentication & Records Retention

Thursday, January 1, 2004


Efforts to secure computers and networks and the development of corresponding policies and procedures that appropriately protect user privacy present difficult challenges for libraries and institutions of higher education. These policies are of increasing importance due to security concerns, legislation such as the USA PATRIOT Act, and the changing licensing requirements of software and database vendors. This briefing, given at the CNI Spring 2004 Task Force Meeting, will explore two recent ARL reports examining patron privacy and authentication of public workstations and related campus challenges in light of the "Principles to Guide Efforts to Improve Computer and Network Security for Higher Education" developed by the EDUCAUSE/Internet2 Computer and Network Security Task Force in 2002.
