Two new firewall policies to be applied on Monday, February 12, 2018

As part of the new firewall deployment​ and following monitoring of current traffic, Gallaudet Technology Services (GTS) will add two policies to detect and block incoming malicious SIP traffic.  The new policies will be applied on Monday, February 12, at 6:30 a.m.  Those two policies are:
 
1) Block malicious SIP scanners used to identify SIP servers on our network
2) Block repeated incoming SIP registration attempts
 
​These policies are specific to the actions of external sources attempting to identify weaknesses within the Gallaudet network.  ​As SIP is a protocol used by most videophones, there is a very small possibility this change could affect videophones.​ 
 
If your videophone does not work as expected after 7 a.m. on Monday morning, please submit a Help Desk request for assistance.
