3. Additional data sources
Additionally, OxCERT have access, either directly or upon request, to data logged by many central University network services (for instance SMTP, DNS and VPN logs). Logs from certain college or department systems may also be made available to OxCERT for the purposes of tracing malicious network activity. It is the responsibility of the providers of these services to ensure that these data are made available in accordance with the appropriate privacy policies.
OxCERT also receive various automated and manual reports from various organisations external to the University. Where appropriate and permitted by OxCERT's agreement with the external organisation, information gained from these reports may be redistributed in order to inform system administrators of an incident.
