What is happening? IST will be enabling an Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) on the eduroam wireless network as a production trial, leading to a permanent implementation.

When is this happening? The policy will be enabled on August 18 and removed on August 29. If no major issues are experienced during this period, the policy will be permanently implemented in October (with further communication).

Why is this happening? The University is required to have an Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) on the wireless network. The production trial has been scheduled to reduce impact.

What is the impact on users? The policy will need to be accepted on every device connected to eduroam once every 120 days. While connected to eduroam, the policy will intercept browser traffic (http only) on devices that have not accepted it and redirect to a page with the terms & conditions. Once the policy has been accepted, it will not prompt the device for 120 days. The policy will be integrated into the splash pages of uw-unsecured and uw-guest, causing no other impact to those wireless networks.

Questions/concerns? Please contact the IST Service Desk (CHIP), helpdesk at uwaterloo.ca<mailto:helpdesk at uwaterloo.ca> or ext. 84357.
