The Mason network utilizes firewalls for protection from unauthorized access and malicious attacks. Departments may request adjustments to firewall settings to enable specific types of access or services hosted on their equipment or to permit access to newly installed servers.
All servers connected to the Mason network must be registered with Information Technology Services.
Access to secure services and applications is limited to authorized users only.
All servers connected to the Mason network must be protected by the network firewalls and must adhere to the following policies:
- University Policy Number 1301: Responsible Use of Computing
- University Policy Number 1304: Public Internet Address
- University Policy Number 1309: Information Technology Infrastructure, Architecture, and Ongoing Operations
- University Policy Number 1312: Physical and Logical Access Security
- University Policy Number 1114: Data Stewardship

Firewall protection is automatic. Setting adjustments for departmental servers can be requested by completing a Firewall Change Request form. (ITS system administrators may request firewall changes via e-mail or SDE tickets for servers hosted in the Aquia Data Center.)
To register a server with ITS, complete a Public Internet Host Request form.
