The following sections describe various examples of guest facilities provided by Janet-connected organisations. The organisations, and their requirements to support guests, vary widely, so it is not surprising that the solutions are very different. Most use a combination of the tools described in the previous section – a table showing the main tools used in each case study is in section 4.8 – and all are based on a careful and continuing analysis of the organisation’s requirements and the risks they must address.

As stated, the following sections describe a number of tools and techniques that can be used to reduce the risk of misuse of the network. They are presented here in the context of providing network access for guests, though many of them can also be used for local users. None of the tools can make misuse impossible: each section describes which risks can be reduced by a particular tool and which risks may remain or be increased.

Organisations that connect to Janet agree to abide by the Terms for the Provision of the Janet Service, including complying with the Janet Connection, Security and Acceptable Use Policies.2 These Policies exist to support the use of Janet for its intended purpose as the UK’s education and research network. The Connection Policy ensures that organisations are only connected to the network where this will benefit that purpose.
