Our AUP references standards that include the following
"Selecting and using client software that provides encrypted
communications whenever it is an available and practical choice."
"Administrators and implementers of campus servers that pass
authentication information between themselves and their off-campus
clients are to use software that encrypts the authentication
transaction whenever it is available and practical. Systems that
make use of the universal JMU Electronic ID (E-ID) and password
are absolutely required to encrypt this information in transit."
"Since proper operation varies with changes in technology and platforms,
specific requirements are not included in this policy. Instead, these
requirements are listed in the JMU Computing Standards."
