Some of the key highlights are:
  • the domain iitd.ac.in will be the primary domain for IIT Delhi (iitd.ernet.in is deprecated and may not be supported in future)
  • a revised IIT Delhi IT Policy comprising of (1) The IITD IT Usage Policy (ii) The IITD IT Privacy Policy & (iii) The Network Access & Monitoring policy. (see www.cc.iitd.ac.in for details).
  • Port restriction are being removed from all authenticated (802.1x) access points (e.g. IITD_WIFI)
  • Please note that this means users may visit any sites/services. Howeve proper traceability of IP addresses will be maintained and in case of any violation of IITD Policies including illegal downloads of copyrighted content, strict action will be taken which may includes appropriate fines and or suspension of Internet priviliges and or the CSC ID.
  • For unauthenticated Wired Services — Current Proxy Based Access will continue.
