[unisog] network service encryption requirements for privacy/confidentiality

Hi All,

I'm looking for some help finding written policy mandating the use of 
encryption in network based services (i.e. SMTP/IMAP/POP/HTTP(S)/etc) as 
it pertains to the privacy/confidentiality of data in a university 
environment.

Is anyone out there still allowing non-encrypted services (i.e. 
IMAP/POP/SMTP)? If so, why?

What about use of S/MIME or PGP to sign/encrypt messages?

And how about portable device encryptions? Laptops, palm-sized devices, 
cell-phones, etc.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
Harry
