Authenticated access to the internet through the CSU network is managed by the Internet Access System (IAS). The IAS is also used to report staff internet access (including session history) and data usage for auditing purposes. Users will be contacted for clarification where there have been excessive or unexpected usage patterns.
The IAS allows for:
You can access the internet using your CSU account via the eduroam wireless network while visiting participating institutions.
Internet access will be suspended if there is a breach of the Computing and Communications Facilities Use Policy

Enables reporting on audit events that relate to users (e.g. addition of quota, changes to subscriber type).
Other common audit types show if a user has gone over their quota or been disabled for some reason.
If there is no information under the ‘Audit History’ table, you do not have any audit records against you.
Note - almost all audit type records apply only to students.
All staff have a standard level of internet access applied to their CSU owned computing device/s which cannot be changed.
Standard access allows you to connect to all internet services (both known and unknown) but any connections back that are not related to your web browsing will be denied. You will not be able to host services (such as web pages) and have them accessible from the internet under the standard access level.
Note - some internet services are ALWAYS blocked for security policy reasons. These services are NOT available on ANY access level or by request.
CSU also recommends you have anti-virus software and internet security/firewall software on your device to protect you from unsolicited access from the internet.
