Het [https://www.ru.nl/ict/ ISC] heeft het instellen van het [https://www.ru.nl/draadloos draadloze netwerk] eenvoudiger en veiliger gemaakt door over te gaan op [https://cat.eduroam.org Eduroam CAT]. Hierbij krijgen medewerkers en studenten van de Radboud universiteit een op de RU campus toegesneden installatiebestand aangeboden. Eduroam CAT ondersteunt op dit moment diverse versies van Windows, MacOS, OS X, Linux, Chrome OS, Android en een generieke EAP configuratie. Om Eduroam CAT te gebruiken is Internetconnectiviteit noodzakelijk, dat kan op de campus het netwerk Eduroam-config zijn, maar dan moet men [https://www.ru.nl/ict/medewerkers/wifi/eduroam-instellen/ de specifieke RU-instructies] volgen.

In de zomervakantie hebben alle [https://wiki.science.ru.nl/cncz/Terminalkamers pc's in de pc-cursuszalen (terminalkamers)] een upgrade van Windows7 naar Windows10 gehad. Ook zijn de 4 jaar oude pc's uit TK625/HG00.625 en HG00.201/studielandschap/bibliotheek vervangen. In TK053/HG02.053 en HG00.201/studielandschap zijn ook pc's bijgeplaatst. Via het Software Center kunnen gebruikers zelf  software installeren uit de catalogus. Alle [[Contact|vragen en opmerkingen zijn welkom]].

Hierbij nodigen we u graag uit voor een voorlichtingsbijeenkomst over het nieuwe weblecture systeem dat per september 2015 bij FNWI in gebruik wordt genomen. Deze nieuwe service van de Radboud Universiteit vervangt het huidige Onderwijs in Beeld. In een presentatie zoomen we in op wat dit voor u betekent: wat verandert er voor docenten en studenten en wat zijn de nieuwe mogelijkheden als u een college laat opnemen.

De nieuwste update (4) voor de laatste versie van [[Matlab]], R2018a, is beschikbaar voor afdelingen die licenties voor het gebruik van Matlab hebben.
Monday June 29, from 12:30 to 13:30 (sharp), in LIN1 (Linnaeus building).
+
De software en de licentiecodes zijn via een mail naar postmaster te krijgen voor wie daar recht op heeft. De software staat overigens ook op de [[:Categorie:Software|install]]-schijf. Op alle door C&CZ beheerde Linux machines is R2018a Update 4 binnenkort beschikbaar, een oudere versie (/opt/matlab-R2017b/bin/matlab) is nog tijdelijk te gebruiken. Op de door C&CZ beheerde Windows-machines zal Matlab tijdens het semester niet van versie veranderen om versieafhankelijkheden bij lopende colleges te voorkomen.

We hereby cordially invite you to the information session about the new weblectures system which will become operational at the Faculty of Science in September 2015. This new Radboud University service will replace the current Onderwijs in Beeld system for recording lectures and viewing the recordings. In a presentation we will zoom in on what this means for you: what will change for students and lecturers and what are the new features when your course is recorded.

+
The latest update (4) for the most recent version of [[Matlab]], R2018a, is available for departments that have licenses. The software and license codes can be obtained through a mail to postmaster for those entitled to it.  The software can also be found on the [[:Categorie:Software|install]]-disc. All C&CZ-managed Linux machines will soon have this version installed, an older version (/opt/matlab-R2017b/bin/matlab) is still available temporarily. The C&CZ-managed Windows machines will not receive a new version during the semester to prevent problems with version dependencies in current lectures.
We hope to see you on Monday June 29.

Maar Roundcube heeft veel andere voordelen t.o.v. Rainloop: het beheren van het delen van mappen met andere gebruikers, gedeelde labels en het beheren van Sieve filters en vakantieberichten.

Als test voor de nieuwe versie van Ubuntu, 18.04 LTS, hebben we een nieuwe loginserver beschikbaar, onder de naam <tt>lilo6.science.ru.nl</tt>. Over enige tijd zal deze de vijf jaar oude loginserver <tt>lilo4</tt> vervangen. De naam <tt>lilo</tt>, die altijd naar de nieuwste/snelste loginserver wijst, zal pas dan omgezet worden van de twee jaar oude <tt>lilo5</tt> naar de nieuwe <tt>lilo6</tt>. De nieuwe <tt>lilo6</tt> is een Dell PowerEdge R440 met 2 stuks Xeon Silver 4110 CPU @2.10GHz 8-core processoren en 64GB RAM. Met hyperthreading aan lijkt dit dus een 32-processor machine. Voor wie de identiteit van deze server wil controleren alvorens het Science wachtwoord aan de nieuwe server te geven, zie [https://wiki.science.ru.nl/cncz/index.php?title=Hardware_servers&setlang=nl#Linux_.5Bloginservers.5D.5Blogin_servers.5D de sectie over onze loginservers].

The name <tt>lilo</tt>, that always points to the newest/fastest login server, will then be moved from the two year old <tt>lilo5</tt> to the new <tt>lilo6</tt>. The new <tt>lilo6</tt> is a Dell PowerEdge R440 with 2 Xeon Silver 4110 CPU @2.10GHz 8-core processors and 64GB RAM.  Because we enabled hyper-threading, it is showing 32 processors.

 +
Met ingang van 1 augustus krijgen alle FNWI-medewerkers die nog geen account hebben in
 +
[http://www.ru.nl/ict/medewerkers/mail-agenda/ Exchange (de RU-centrale mail- en agendavoorziening)]
 +
zo'n account en daarmee een mail-adres erbij, van de vorm: Voornaam.Achternaam@ru.nl. Voor wie
 +
al een Exchange-account heeft, met een mail-adres eindigend op bv @ru.nl
 +
@donders.ru.nl @fnwi.ru.nl, verandert er niets.
 +
 
 +
In Exchange kan men agenda’s met elkaar delen, zodat het maken van
 +
afspraken gemakkelijker wordt.  Op elk van deze nieuwe @ru.nl-adressen
 +
wordt een "redirect" gezet naar het bestaande Science-adres. Hierdoor
 +
mist u geen mail, u krijgt er alleen een adres bij, dat alle nieuwe mail
 +
doorstuurt naar het bestaande adres.
 +
 
 +
Wilt u gebruik maken van Exchange?
 +
De "redirect" kunt u uitzetten door in te loggen op https://mail.ru.nl
 +
met het U-nummer voorafgegaan door "RU\" en uw RU-wachtwoord. Vervolgens
 +
vinkt u bij "Options -> Create an Inbox Rule" de "redirect all incoming"
 +
uit.  Het doorsturen van de Science-mail naar Exchange kan aangezet worden
 +
door in de [https://dhz.science.ru.nl Doe-Het-Zelf site] bij "doorsturen" het @ru.nl mail-adres in
 +
te stellen.
 +
 
 +
N.B.1: Thunderbird-gebruikers moeten de add-on "Lightning" installeren
 +
om vergaderverzoeken uit Exchange te kunnen zien en erop te reageren.
 +
 
 +
N.B.2: als er een redirect-regel in Exchange is, zal Exchange de
 +
mails niet doorsturen die afkomstig zijn van het doorstuur-adres,
 +
om te voorkomen dat mail steeds maar doorgestuurd wordt.
 +
 
 +
Heeft u hierover vragen, neem dan [[Contact|contact op met C&CZ]].

 +
Starting August 1, all FNWI employees who do not have an account yet
 +
in [http://www.ru.nl/ict-uk/staff/mail-calendar/ Exchange, the RU central mail and calendar],
 +
will get such an account and with that an extra mail address, of the form Givenname.Surname@ru.nl.
 +
For anyone who already has an Exchange account, with a mail address
 +
ending in e.g. @ru.nl @donders.ru.nl @fnwi.ru.nl, nothing changes.
 +
 
 +
In Exchange one can share calendars with eachother, which makes making appointments easier.
 +
All new Exchange accounts will get a "redirect" to the current Science
 +
address. As a result, you will not miss an email: you only get an extra
 +
address, that redirects all new mail to the existing address.
 +
 
 +
Do you want to use Exchange?
 +
The "redirect" can be turned off by logging in to https://mail.ru.nl with your U-number
 +
preceded by "RU\" and your RU password. After that, you can remove the
 +
check box in "Options -> Create an Inbox Rule" at "redirect
 +
all incoming".
 +
Sending new Science mail to Exchange can be turned on by visiting the [https://dhz.science.ru.nl Do-It-Yourself Site] and "forward" to the @ru.nl mail address.
 +
 
 +
Take Note 1: Thunderbird users should install the add-on Lightning to be
 +
able to see and process Exchange calendar requests.
 +
 
 +
Take Note 2: if there is a redirect line in Exchange, Exchange will not
 +
forward mails with sender address the same as the forwarding address, in
 +
order to prevent mail loops.

 +
Uit beveiligingsoverwegingen gaat C&CZ een verouderde, inmiddels als onveilig beschouwde,
 +
wachtwoordversleuteling van Science accounts uitfaseren. Het gaat hierbij om accounts
 +
waarvan sinds 1 september 2014 het wachtwoord niet is aangepast. De aanpassing vindt
 +
midden februari 2017 plaats.
 +
 
 +
Indien u meerdere jaren het wachtwoord van uw Science account niet hebt aangepast,
 +
kan het gebeuren dat bepaalde diensten nog gebruik maken van de oude versleuteling.
 +
U kunt hierbij denken aan wachtwoorden om in te loggen op Linux machines, Eduroam-toegang middels uw science account of de Science [[Vpn|VPN]] server.
 +
Om toch gebruik te kunnen blijven maken van die diensten, moet de oude versleuteling
 +
vervangen worden. Dit kan door het opnieuw instellen van uw Science wachtwoord op
 +
de [https://dhz.science.ru.nl Doe het Zelf site]. Onder het Menu item 'wachtwoord' kunt u het wachtwoord instellen. Op diezelfde pagina kunt u tevens zien wanneer voor het laatst uw wachtwoord
 +
is aangepast.

type of Science passwords. Accounts that haven't changed their passwords since September 1, 2014,

 +
 
 +
If you haven't changed the password of your Science account for several years, it is
 +
very likely that some services still use the old encryption type. Examples of these
 +
services are passwords used to login to Linux machines, Eduroam access by using your
 +
Science account or the Science [[Vpn|VPN]] server.
 +
To continue using these services, the old encryption has to be replaced. This can be
 +
done by resetting your Science password at the [https://dhz.science.ru.nl Do It Yourself site].

Omdat enkele Linux- en MacOS-gebruikers problemen hadden met de nieuwe op IPsec gebaseerde [[Vpn|VPN]] en ook met de al bestaande alternatieven, hebben we een nieuwe [https://wiki.science.ru.nl/cncz/Vpn#OpenVPN_.5Bvoor.5D.5Bfor.5D_Linux_.26_MacOS OpenVPN] service ingericht. De hoop en verwachting is dat we hiermee de oude op PPTP gebaseerde VPN.science.ru.nl, die niet meer als veilig beschouwd wordt, zoals aangekondigd, op 1 december uit kunnen zetten.

Because some Linux and MacOS users had problems with the new IPsec-based [[Vpn|VPN]] and also with the existing alternatives, we setup a new [https://wiki.science.ru.nl/cncz/index.php?title=Vpn&setlang=en#OpenVPN_.5Bvoor.5D.5Bfor.5D_Linux_.26_MacOS OpenVPN] service. The hope and expectation is that with this new service, we can shut down the old PPTP-based VPN.science.ru.nl, which is no longer considered to be secure, on December 1 as earlier announced.

Als test voor de nieuwe versie van Ubuntu, 16.04 LTS, hebben we een nieuwe loginserver beschikbaar, onder de naam <tt>lilo5.science.ru.nl</tt>. Over enige tijd zal deze de vijf jaar oude loginserver <tt>lilo3</tt> vervangen. De naam <tt>lilo</tt>, die altijd naar de nieuwste/snelste loginserver wijst, zal pas dan omgezet worden van de twee jaar oude <tt>lilo4</tt> naar de nieuwe <tt>lilo5</tt>. De nieuwe <tt>lilo5</tt> is een Dell PowerEdge R430 met 2 Xeon E5-2630L v4 10-core processoren en 64 GB geheugen. Met hyperthreading aan lijkt dit dus een 40-processor machine. Voor wie de identiteit van deze server wil controleren alvorens het Science wachtwoord aan de nieuwe server te geven:
 +
<tt>ECDSA key fingerprint is 7d:08:27:61:ac:c8:f1:05:4f:c9:91:2a:83:e5:c3:4f.</tt>.

As a test of the new version of Ubuntu, 16.04 LTS, we have installed a new login server <tt>lilo5.science.ru.nl</tt>. In a few months it will replace the five year old login server <tt>lilo3</tt>. The name <tt>lilo</tt>, that always points to the newest/fastest login server, will then be moved from the two year old <tt>lilo4</tt> to the new <tt>lilo5</tt>. The new <tt>lilo5</tt> is a Dell PowerEdge R430 with 2 Xeon E5 2630L v4 processors with 10 cores.  Because we enabled hyper-threading, it is showing 40 processors. It has 64 GB of memory.

For users who want to check the identity of this new server before supplying their Science-password to the new server:

De doelstelling van de pilot is het opdoen van kennis van en ervaring met IPv6 om dit op het gehele campusnetwerk succesvol te implementeren. Op dit moment zijn er twee [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IPv6#Dual_IP_stack_implementation dual-stack Vlans], 1 voor clients en 1 voor servers. Omdat het een pilot betreft, wordt er geen enkele garantie gegeven en kan de IPv6-connectiviteit onderbroken worden voor aanpassingen. Een verwachte aanpassing is de verhuizing van de koppeling met SURFnet van het Huygensgebouw naar het Forum (ISC-gebouw). Tot die tijd kunnen alleen outlets in de FNWI-gebouwen aangesloten worden op dit netwerk. Aanmelden voor de pilot kan nu dus nog alleen bij C&CZ netwerkbeheer, netmaster@science.ru.nl, voor outlets in de FNWI-gebouwen.

Currently there are two [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IPv6#Dual_IP_stack_implementation dual-stack Vlans], 1 for clients and 1 for servers. Since this is a pilot, no guarantees are given and IPv6 connectivity can be shut down for changes and maintenance.

Until then, only outlets in the FNWI buildings can be connected to this network. Joining the pilot is thus only possible at the moment through C&CZ Networks, netmaster@science.ru.nl, for outlets in FNWI buildings.

Zodra medewerkers en gasten ook Peage kunnen gebruiken, kan het C&CZ printsysteem uitgefaseerd gaan worden. De vervanging zal vermoedelijk vanaf april plaatsvinden. Voordelen van Peage zijn: follow-me-printing en scan-to-me scanning. Een nadeel is dat men niet meerdere budgetgroepen kan hebben. Doorbelasting voor medewerkers gaat naar de kostenplaats van de hoofdaanstelling. De Konica Minolta printer in het restaurant van het Huygensgebouw is al lang een Peage-printer. Als Peage verder ingevoerd wordt, zal begonnen worden met de Konica Minolta printers op de begane grond van het Huygensgebouw. Na de begane grond zijn de verdiepingen aan de beurt en tenslotte de gebouwen rond Huygens.

Once staff and guests can also use Peage, the C&CZ printing system can be phased out. The move is expected to take place from April. Peage benefits include: follow-me-printing and Scan-to-Me scanning. A disadvantage is that one can not have different budget groups. Charging employees for the costs will be done through the account (kostenplaats)  of the chief appointment. The Konica Minolta printer in the restaurant of the Huygens building is a Peage printer already. If Peage is further implemented, we will start with the Konica Minolta printers on the ground floor of the Huygens building.

Versleuteling van persoonsgegevens, b.v. met de gratis software [http://www.7-zip.org/ 7zip] (open source) of [https://veracrypt.codeplex.com/ VeraCrypt], die beide voor Windows/Linux/MacOSX beschikbaar zijn, is een goede keus, zeker als u de persoonsgegevens op een mobiele datadrager heeft, zoals een laptop of een USB-stick. Het bestandsysysteem van smartphones/tablets/laptops kan vaak ook versleuteld worden ([http://www.tomsguide.com/us/encrypt-files-windows,news-18314.html Windows], [http://www.howtogeek.com/141953/how-to-encrypt-your-android-phone-and-why-you-might-want-to/ Android], [http://searchmobilecomputing.techtarget.com/tip/How-iOS-encryption-and-data-protection-work iPad/iPhone]), daarnaast is het vaak mogelijk deze bij verlies of diefstal op afstand te wissen ([https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/6160500?hl=en Android], [https://support.apple.com/kb/ph2701?locale=nl_NL iPad/iPhone]).

In order not to become the source of a data breach yourself, it is wise to consider what personal information you have of others (colleagues, students, ...). If you do not really need this information, deleting it is the safest option. Encrypting personal data, e.g. by using the free software [http://www.7-zip.org/ 7zip] (open source) or [https://veracrypt.codeplex.com/ VeraCrypt], both available for Windows/Linux/MacOSX, is a good choice too, especially if you have the data on a mobile data carrier, such as a laptop or a USB stick. The filesystem of smartphones/tablets/laptops can often be encrypted too ([http://www.tomsguide.com/us/encrypt-files-windows,news-18314.html Windows], [http://www.howtogeek.com/141953/how-to-encrypt-your-android-phone-and-why-you-might-want-to/ Android], [http://searchmobilecomputing.techtarget.com/tip/How-iOS-encryption-and-data-protection-work iPad/iPhone]). Furthermore in case of theft or loss, these can often be remotely wiped ([https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/6160500?hl=en Android], [https://support.apple.com/kb/PH2701?viewlocale=en_US iPad/iPhone]).

Begin deze week ontvingen veel medewerkers een mail met als onderwerp "img", als volledige inhoud "Sent from my Lenovo" en als [http://www.myce.com/news/malware-spreads-by-cab-e-mail-attachments-to-evade-ziprar-filters-74635/ bijlage malware met een naam als "IMG_0112201135_2015 JPEG.cab"]. Een ".cab"-bestand is een gecomprimeerd archief, vergelijkbaar met een zip-bestand. Omdat men vaak op Windows PC's de extensie van bestanden niet ziet, lijkt dit dan een plaatje (JPEG), terwijl het een "....JPEG.exe" is. Dubbelklikken op het namaakplaatje infecteert dan de computer door het uitvoeren van de ".exe". Daarom heeft C&CZ in het [http://www.mimedefang.org/ MIMEDefang filter] op de [[:Categorie:Email|Science mailserver]] ingesteld dat ".cab"-bijlagen verwijderd worden uit mails, zoals al veel langer gebeurt met andere gevaarlijke extensies als ".exe". Bij een gebruiker die in deze malware trapte, werden allerlei bestanden versleuteld en kreeg de gebruiker een melding over het betalen van losgeld om de bestanden te ontsleutelen. Dit kon hersteld worden door de PC te herinstalleren en een [[Backup|backup]] terug te zetten van voor de besmetting. Pas vandaag wordt deze malware ook door F-Secure herkend. Tip: stel in Windows in [http://windows.microsoft.com/nl-nl/windows/show-hide-file-name-extensions#show-hide-file-name-extensions=windows-7 bestandsextensies niet te verbergen].

A ".cab" file is a compressed archive, similar to a zip file. Because people on Windows PCs usually do not see file extensions, this seems to be a picture (JPEG) to them, but it is a "....JPEG.exe". Double clicking on the fake picture infects the computer by executing the ".exe". Therefore C&CZ changed the [http://www.mimedefang.org/ MIMEDefang filter] on the [[:Category:Email|Science mailserver]] to remove ".cab" attachments from mails, as has been done for years with other dangerous extensions like ".exe". When a user fell for this malware all kinds of files were encrypted by the malware and the user was notified about a ransom that had to be paid to decrypt the files. This could be fixed by reinstalling the PC and restoring a [[Backup|backup]] of before the encryption. As of today, this malware is also detected by F-Secure. Idea: change your Windows settings [http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/how-to/software/how-show-or-hide-file-extensions-3341794/ not to hide file extensions].

De nieuwste versie van [[Matlab]], R2015b, is beschikbaar voor afdelingen die licenties voor het gebruik van Matlab hebben.
 +
De software en de licentiecodes zijn via een mail naar postmaster te krijgen voor wie daar recht op heeft. De software staat overigens ook op de [[:Categorie:Software|install]]-schijf. Op alle door C&CZ beheerde Linux machines is R2015b binnenkort beschikbaar, een oudere versie (/opt/matlab-R2015a/bin/matlab) is nog tijdelijk te gebruiken. Op de door C&CZ beheerde Windows-machines zal Matlab tijdens het semester niet van versie veranderen om versieafhankelijkheden bij lopende colleges te voorkomen. R2015b is de allerlaatste versie voor 32-bit Windows. R2016a zal wel 64-bit Windows ondersteunen, maar niet 32-bit Windows.

The latest version of [[Matlab]], R2015b, is available for departments that have licenses. The software and license codes can be obtained through a mail to postmaster for those entitled to it.  The software can also be found on the [[:Categorie:Software|install]]-disc. All C&CZ-managed Linux machines will soon have this version installed, an older version (/opt/matlab-R2015a/bin/matlab) is still available temporarily. The C&CZ-managed Windows machines will not receive a new version during the semester to prevent problems with version dependencies in current lectures. The R2015b release is the last version for 32-bit Windows. R2016a will support 64-bit Windows, but not 32-bit Windows.

De nieuwste versie van [[Maple]], Maple2015, is vanaf nu beschikbaar op de door C&CZ beheerde Linux PC's en zal binnenkort op de Windows PC's ge&iuml;nstalleerd worden. De licentie van Maple is een 5-gebruikers licentie. Hiervan worden 4 licenties betaald door de FNWI-afdelingen [http://www.ru.nl/highenergyphysics/ EHEF en THEF]. Doordat [http://wiki.science.ru.nl/cncz C&CZ] ook 1 licentie betaalt, kan elke FNWI-medewerker en -student incidenteel Maple gebruiken. Belangstellenden die Maple vaker willen gebruiken, kunnen zich melden bij [[Contact|C&CZ]]. De software is te vinden op de [[Install_share|Install]]-netwerkschijf. Licentiecodes zijn bij C&CZ helpdesk of postmaster te verkrijgen.

The latest version of [[Maple]], Maple2015, is available as of today on all C&CZ managed Linux PC's and will be available shortly on all Windows PC's.

The license of Maple is a 5-user license. Of these, 4 are financed by the Faculty of Science departments [http://www.ru.nl/highenergyphysics/ EHEF and THEF]. Because 1 license is paid by [http://wiki.science.ru.nl/cncz C&CZ], all FNWI employees and students are allowed to use Maple once in a while. If you want to use Maple more often, please contact [[Contact|C&CZ]]. The software can be found on the [[Install share|Install]] network share.

Vrijwel al deze access-points ondersteunen ook de nieuwe [http://www.allesoverdraadloosinternet.nl/wifi/wifi-80211ac/ 802.11ac] standaard. Daardoor zijn zowel dekking als capaciteit van het wireless 'eduroam' netwerk in deze gebouwen sterk verbeterd. Om zeker te weten dat op belangrijke locaties zowel dekking als capaciteit optimaal zijn, verricht het [http://www.ru.nl/isc ISC] in de komende weken metingen. Ook vragen wij gebruikers binnen FNWI die toch nog problemen ondervinden met wireless, dit te melden bij de C&CZ helpdesk (helpdesk@science.ru.nl). Waar nodig zullen vervolgens aanpassingen plaatsvinden. Nadere informatie over wireless is te vinden op [http://www.ru.nl/ict/medewerkers/wifi/ de ISC website].

In the past months, the number of wireless access points in the Huygens building, Mercator 1 and HFML has been much increased, from 97 to 219. Almost all of these access points also support the new [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEEE_802.11ac 802.11ac] standard. This has much improved both coverage and capacity of the wireless network 'eduroam' in these buildings. To make sure that both coverage and capacity is optimal in important locations, the [http://www.ru.nl/isc ISC] will take measurements in the next weeks. We also ask users within FNWI that still have problems with the wireless network, to report this to the C&CZ helpdesk (helpdesk@science.ru.nl). Where necessary, adjustments will then be made. More information about the wireless network can be found at [http://www.ru.nl/ict-uk/staff/wifi/ the ISC website]. The other FNWI buildings will get an upgrade in 2016, if budget is available.

Eduroam CAT to setup Eduroam

The ISC made setting up the wireless network simpler and safer by switching to Eduroam CAT. Employees and students of Radboud University are offered an installer tailored to the RU campus network. Eduroam CAT currently supports various versions of Windows, MacOS, OS X, Linux, Chrome OS, Android and a generic EAP configuration. In order to use Eduroam CAT, Internet connectivity is necessary. On campus, this might be the network Eduroam-config, but then one must use the RU-specific instructions

Matlab R2018a Update 4 available

The latest update (4) for the most recent version of Matlab, R2018a, is available for departments that have licenses. The software and license codes can be obtained through a mail to postmaster for those entitled to it. The software can also be found on the install-disc. All C&CZ-managed Linux machines will soon have this version installed, an older version (/opt/matlab-R2017b/bin/matlab) is still available temporarily. The C&CZ-managed Windows machines will not receive a new version during the semester to prevent problems with version dependencies in current lectures.

Digital testing/assessment with cloud application streaming

Since February 2015, digital tests/assessments can be held within the Faculty of Science. Last week, more than 300 students Computing Science were successfully graded in a large scale digital test/assessment with use of the Netbeans integrated development environment. This IDE was streamed as a Windows application from cloud supplier Amazon. The application ran in a tab of the RU Kiosk App and was delivered through Amazon Appstream 2.0 on Chromebooks. The Chromebooks were purchased last year by the university to make large scale digital testing/assessment possible.

More privacy in Mailman lists

In the context of the new privacy legislation the default properties of all mailman lists have been modified.

  • the mailman lists are no longer publicly announced on the mailman server.
  • the members of a list can only be viewed by the list administrators.
  • subscription to a list is restricted to addresses in ru.nl, radboudumc.nl and mpi.nl.

The third property is probably too restrictive for some of the lists, list administrators can revert this change in the privacy options (Ban list).

Webmail: Roundcube and Exchange alternative for small screens: Rainloop

For small screens of smartphones, the webmail of Roundcube is not very well suited. That is why there is an alternative now: Rainloop. You can set a "threaded view" in Rainloop, which is also handy for small screens. The Science addressbook is available in Rainloop. One can also use Rainloop for the RU Exchange mail. But Roundcube has many other advantages over Rainloop: manage folders shared with other users, shared labels and the administration of Sieve filters and out-of-office messages. For more information see our mail page.

Test of Ubuntu 18.04 on Linux login server lilo6

As a test of the new version of Ubuntu, 18.04 LTS, we have installed a new login server lilo6.science.ru.nl. In a few months it will replace the five year old login server lilo4. The name lilo, that always points to the newest/fastest login server, will then be moved from the two year old lilo5 to the new lilo6. The new lilo6 is a Dell PowerEdge R440 with 2 Xeon Silver 4110 CPU @2.10GHz 8-core processors and 64GB RAM. Because we enabled hyper-threading, it is showing 32 processors. For users who want to check the identity of this new server before supplying their Science-password to the new server, see the section about our loginservers. Please report all problems with this new version of Ubuntu Linux.

Test Windows10 on info pcs central street

During the summer break all pc's in the computer labs will get an upgrade from Windows7 to Windows10. This can now be tested on the 4 info column pcs in the central street near the Library of Science (HG00.011). All remarks and questions are welcome. N.B.1: the Windows7 roaming profile has not been transfered, every user gets a clean profile. N.B.2: because the info column pcs are used less and less, they will be removed during the summer break.

EveryOnePrint: Peage printing through app, web upload or mail

Recently the ISC made EveryOnePrint available. With this, you can print from smartphone, tablet and every Internet-device to Peage, through web upload, app or mail. Unluckily enough, the mail option was chosen to work only with @ru.nl mail addresses, not with @science.ru.nl or other addresses.

Old Sopho telephone exchange switched off

After more than 30 years of loyal service, the old Philips Sopho S2500 telephone exchange of the SKU (RU and Radboudumc) has been switched off and removed. This 'first digital telephone exchange' was commissioned by FNWI in August 1987, as a pilot project of PTT, Philips and the RU (then KUN). Aad Hulsbosch of C&CZ was one of the driving forces during commissioning. In 1991, the Sopho switch was expanded for the entire SKU, to approximately 15,000 connections. The telephone functionality on the SKU has recently been completely taken over by an IP telephone exchange of Mitel Mitel and the Vodafone Wireless Office wireless telephony.

Donation to free and open source software: ISC, FSF and OpenBSD

For the majority of the services C&CZ uses free software and open source software. Therefore, some time ago the idea emerged that the C&CZ employees would vote each year which projects would receive a donation of C&CZ. This year the Internet Systems Consortium, OpenBSD and the Free Software Foundation (FSF) were chosen. The Internet Systems Consortium develops a.o. BIND (DNS/nameserver) and ISC DHCP, both basic services of the network and the Internet. OpenBSD develops, next to OpenBSD itself, also OpenSSH and LibreSSL. The FSF supports GNU/Linux, which is used on almost all servers maintained by C&CZ and on many hundreds of workstations, including the computer labs.

Linux printing to Peage now simple

Initially as a test, there is now a much simpler alternative to the SMB printing from Linux. A printer "Peage" now is available on the Linux workstations and servers managed by C&CZ. The C&CZ print server translates the Science username to the U- or S-number and sends the print job onwards to a RU payprint server. Command line printing with the command lpr is also possible (lpoptions -pPeage -o SelectColor=Color to make color prints by default).

SURFdrive: now 250 GB per user

In SURF News we read that as of October 9, the storage space for users of SURFdrive has been expanded from 100 GB to 250 GB. SURFdrive is a Dropbox-like storage for work-related files, that should not have the security classification critical or sensitive. Data is stored within Dutch borders, the users remain the owners of their own data, and SURF itself provides no information to third parties, which makes SURFdrive more secure than Dropbox.

The last remaining general C&CZ managed printer, the black/white printer Escher in the Library of Science will be shutdown and removed as of November 1. This marks the end of the C&CZ budgetted print system. C&CZ printbudgets are then only used for the not directly accessible poster and 3D printers. Printing on general printers has been moved to Peage more than a year ago.

Remaining C&CZ printbudget can be used for poster or 3D printing or reclaimed at C&CZ (HG03.055).

Replace FTP URL's by HTTPS

Because Chrome will label all FTP URL's as "not secure" starting December 2017, it is wise to change those URL's, if you offer files through ftp://ftp.science.ru.nl/pub. The same files can be found with the more secure URL https://ftp.science.ru.nl/.

Upgrade to Ubuntu 16.04 for Computer labs and individual workstations

During the summer break all computer labs will be (re)installed with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. Since months ago, one can test course software using the Ubuntu 16.04 loginserver lilo5. All PC's in HG00.029, HG00.206, HG02.253, library, study landscape, project rooms and college rooms will be replaced by new ones, (All-in-One, dual boot with Windows7 and Ubuntu 16.04 Linux).

If you are using Linux PC's in computer labs as well as a managed Linux PC in your office, we advise you to consider upgrading your office PC to Ubuntu 16.04 as well. Running Ubuntu 12.04 or 14.04 in your office on a managed PC and using an Ubuntu 16.04 PC in the computer labs will result in problems.

Exchange account/mail-address Givenname.Surname at ru.nl for FNWI staff from August 1

Starting August 1, all FNWI employees who do not have an account yet in Exchange, the RU central mail and calendar, will get such an account and with that an extra mail address, of the form For anyone who already has an Exchange account, with a mail address ending in e.g. @ru.nl @donders.ru.nl @fnwi.ru.nl, nothing changes.

In Exchange one can share calendars with eachother, which makes making appointments easier. All new Exchange accounts will get a "redirect" to the current Science address. As a result, you will not miss an email: you only get an extra address, that redirects all new mail to the existing address.

Do you want to use Exchange? The "redirect" can be turned off by logging in to https://mail.ru.nl with your U-number preceded by "RU\" and your RU password. After that, you can remove the check box in "Options -> Create an Inbox Rule" at "redirect all incoming". Sending new Science mail to Exchange can be turned on by visiting the Do-It-Yourself Site and "forward" to the @ru.nl mail address.

Take Note 1: Thunderbird users should install the add-on Lightning to be able to see and process Exchange calendar requests.

Take Note 2: if there is a redirect line in Exchange, Exchange will not forward mails with sender address the same as the forwarding address, in order to prevent mail loops.

If you have questions, please contact C&CZ.

C&CZ reachable via Whatsapp/Telegram/Signal

If you do not have cellphone coverage, but do have an Internet connection, then you can reach C&CZ also via Whatsapp/Telegram/Signal on telefoon +31 6 15 35 26 77. The direct reason for this is that not in all wings of the Huygens building all mobile carriers have good coverage. However, the wireless Eduroam network has good coverae everywhere, which allows all staff and students to call C&CZ, independent of their mobile provider. Gradually, more providers will support Wi-Fi calling, which eliminates the need for an app like Whatsapp/Telegram/Signal for this purpose. Currently only Vodafone supports Wi-Fi calling, KPN has plans to introduce this in 2017.

Special arrangements will be made for groups of users who would be troubled by this, e.g. having Outlook .pst files on the network or using the compute cluster. During the move, the minimal quota for the Science home directory / U:-disc is enlarged from 2 GB to 5 GB. Workstations/PCs might need a reboot if successful login to Ubuntu proves to be impossible.

Phasing out outdated password encryption

For security reasons C&CZ will phase out an outdated, now considered unsafe, encryption type of Science passwords. Accounts that haven't changed their passwords since September 1, 2014, will be affected. The change will be carried out mid February 2017.

If you haven't changed the password of your Science account for several years, it is very likely that some services still use the old encryption type. Examples of these services are passwords used to login to Linux machines, Eduroam access by using your Science account or the Science VPN server. To continue using these services, the old encryption has to be replaced. This can be done by resetting your Science password at the Do It Yourself site. The menu item 'password' allows you to set your password. This page also shows a remark about when your password was last changed.

Donation to free and open source software

For the majority of the services C&CZ uses free software and open source software. Therefore, some time ago the idea emerged that the C&CZ employees would vote on which projects would receive a donation of C&CZ. This year the Free Software Foundation (FSF) and Limesurvey were chosen. The FSF supports GNU/Linux, which is used on almost all servers maintained by C&CZ and on many hundreds of workstations, including the computer labs. LimeSurvey is used for conducting surveys since 2008. Since the end of 2011, it is used for all ca. 500 course evaluations of the Faculty of Science per year.

Test of Ubuntu 16.04 on Linux login server lilo5

As a test of the new version of Ubuntu, 16.04 LTS, we have installed a new login server lilo5.science.ru.nl. In a few months it will replace the five year old login server lilo3. The name lilo, that always points to the newest/fastest login server, will then be moved from the two year old lilo4 to the new lilo5. The new lilo5 is a Dell PowerEdge R430 with 2 Xeon E5 2630L v4 processors with 10 cores. Because we enabled hyper-threading, it is showing 40 processors. It has 64 GB of memory. For users who want to check the identity of this new server before supplying their Science-password to the new server: ECDSA key fingerprint is 7d:08:27:61:ac:c8:f1:05:4f:c9:91:2a:83:e5:c3:4f.

Password hygiene: personal and not too old, just like a toothbrush

The RU has recently held a Treat your password like your toothbrush campaign. C&CZ too will act on old passwords: IT contacts will get a list of their users that have not changed their Science password in years. Old Science passwords do not have the most recent encryptions, therefore we would like to see them changed to remedy this. Even choosing a new Science password that is the same as the old one, helps to get rid of old password encryptions but please do choose a new password.

Departments: printbudget transferred back to charge account (kostenplaats)

All FNWI Konica Minolta MFPs with the C&CZ-printbudget system have been switched to Peage. The C&CZ printbudget system is only used for the HP printer escher (Library of Science) and the posterprinter kamerbreed. C&CZ has therefore emptied all print budgets that are associated with a charge account (kostenplaats) on August 23. We will instruct Finance&Control to transfer the last budget back to the corresponding charge account (kostenplaats). Owners of sufficiently positive group budgets without charge account will be asked what to do with the remaining budget. Budget for escher/kamerbreed can as of now only be topped up or settled at C&CZ () indicating cost charge account or if necessary with cash.

Quiet keyboards at renewal computer labs HG00.023 and HG00.153

During the summer break the PCs in the computer labs TK023 (HG00.023) and TK153 (HG00.153) will be replaced by new ones, of the type type Dell OptiPlex 7440 AIO with 24-inch Full-HD screen, a Core i5 6500 (3.2GHz,QC) processor, 1x8GB memory and 512GB SSD hard disc. In order to reduce noise disturbance, especially during exams relatively quiet Cherry Stream 3.0 keyboards have been chosen. For other places where many keyboards are used in the same room, this will be a good choice too.

Encrypt your laptop: don't be the source of a data breach

Loss and theft of laptops are a common problem. If a lost laptop contains personal data this is considered a data breach that must be reported and can possibly lead to a fine for Radboud University. To prevent data breaches and fines, we strongly encourage you to encypt the hard disk of your laptop. This can be done easily, for Windows with BitLocker or VeraCrypt, for Mac with FileVault and for Linux with VeraCrypt. The C&CZ helpdesk can give advice.

IPv6 pilot project

C&CZ and ISC Networks jointly started a pilot project with IPv6 networks early 2016. The aim of the project is to gain knowledge on and experience with IPv6 in order to implement it successfully on all campus networks. Currently there are two dual-stack Vlans, 1 for clients and 1 for servers. Since this is a pilot, no guarantees are given and IPv6 connectivity can be shut down for changes and maintenance. One expected change is the moving of the SURFnet IPv6 connection from the Huygens building to the Forum (ISC building). Until then, only outlets in the FNWI buildings can be connected to this network. Joining the pilot is thus only possible at the moment through C&CZ Networks, , for outlets in FNWI buildings.

Move to RU print system Peage

C&CZ and the ISC are preparing the replacement of the C&CZ printing system by the RU-wide Peage printing system, that can be used by students some years now. Once staff and guests can also use Peage, the C&CZ printing system can be phased out. The move is expected to take place from April. Peage benefits include: follow-me-printing and Scan-to-Me scanning. A disadvantage is that one can not have different budget groups. Charging employees for the costs will be done through the account (kostenplaats) of the chief appointment. The Konica Minolta printer in the restaurant of the Huygens building is a Peage printer already. If Peage is further implemented, we will start with the Konica Minolta printers on the ground floor of the Huygens building. After the ground floor, we will continue with the other floors and finally with the buildings around Huygens.

Science SLURM compute cluster: using idle nodes

The SLURM configuration of the cn-cluster has been changed. This gives jobs of owners high priority in their own partition (on their own nodes) and it makes it possible for all users to use all nodes with low priority. Next to that, all users can submit jobs to run on the C&CZ purchased node, with shorter running jobs getting higher priority.

Compute clusternode for general FNWI use

In order to facilitate FNWI departments that don't have their own clusternodes, but that incidentally have computing needs, C&CZ has purchased a cn-clusternode. The original reason for C&CZ to buy this computer server actually was to help departments phase out old clusternodes that are much less energy efficient (performance per Watt). The C&CZ clusternode is a Dell PowerEdge R730 with 2 processors (10-core Xeon E5-2660V3 at 2.6 GHz) and 256 GB memory.

Don't become the source of a data breach yourself!

In order not to become the source of a data breach yourself, it is wise to consider what personal information you have of others (colleagues, students, ...). If you do not really need this information, deleting it is the safest option. Encrypting personal data, e.g. by using the free software 7zip (open source) or VeraCrypt, both available for Windows/Linux/MacOSX, is a good choice too, especially if you have the data on a mobile data carrier, such as a laptop or a USB stick. The filesystem of smartphones/tablets/laptops can often be encrypted too (Windows, Android, iPad/iPhone). Furthermore in case of theft or loss, these can often be remotely wiped (Android, iPad/iPhone). Reports of a data breach can be done at C&CZ, but also 24/7 at the ISC IT Helpdesk, tel: (024-36)22222 / e-mail: .

Data breaches must be reported and will be fined

As of January 1, 2016, organizations are obliged by law to report data leaks. If you notice that you have access to personal data that you shouldn't have, you have to report that, e.g. to C&CZ and/or CERT-RU. If you yourself are working with personal data, you need to do that securely. Unsecure handling of personal data could lead to a huge fine. In the near future, extra attention will be given to informing and involving the RU community w.r.t. this issue.

Watch out! Scammers send mail resembling a picture sent from a smartphone

Early this week, many employees received an email with the subject "img", as entire content "Sent from my Lenovo" and as attachment malware with a name like "IMG_0112201135_2015 JPEG.cab". A ".cab" file is a compressed archive, similar to a zip file. Because people on Windows PCs usually do not see file extensions, this seems to be a picture (JPEG) to them, but it is a "....JPEG.exe". Double clicking on the fake picture infects the computer by executing the ".exe". Therefore C&CZ changed the MIMEDefang filter on the Science mailserver to remove ".cab" attachments from mails, as has been done for years with other dangerous extensions like ".exe". When a user fell for this malware all kinds of files were encrypted by the malware and the user was notified about a ransom that had to be paid to decrypt the files. This could be fixed by reinstalling the PC and restoring a backup of before the encryption. As of today, this malware is also detected by F-Secure. Idea: change your Windows settings not to hide file extensions.

Linux login server lilo will point to lilo4

The name lilo, that always points to the advized login server, will be moved on Wednesday May 6 from the more than three year old lilo3 to the newer lilo4. This is a small step in the upgrade to Ubuntu 14.04. During the summer break the computer labs will be (re)installed with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. Please remove the old entry of lilo(.science.ru.nl) from your ~/.ssh/known_hosts file. For cautious people wanting to check the fingerprint of the public RSA key before supplying their Science-password to the new server: aa:ad:c0:2e:60:9d:d3:cd:ca:a4:59:7d:d0:d8:4c:68. The name stitch for the second loginserver, that can be used if there is a problem with lilo, will be moved on May 6 to the older lilo3.

Eduroam with username without @ will end April 28

As of April 28, it is no longer possible to use the wireless Eduroam network with only a U- or S-number as username, without appending the domain @ru.nl. Until then, this works, but only on RU campus, because the RU RADIUS server then assumed the RADIUS realm @ru.nl. When one uses a username with a RADIUS realm like @ru.nl or @science.ru.nl, one can use Eduroam at all Eduroam connected institutions. How to add the RADIUS realm @ru.nl to your Eduroam settings can be found in the ISC announcement.

Lowering printing prices

Printing prices, for black&white als well as color, have been lowered, in accordance with the campus-wide printing prices. Reason for this reduction in cost is the fact that the total number of pages printed at Radboud University exceeded expectations and also that the fixed costs for the printing infrastructure were less than estimated beforehand.

Renewal WiFi network Huygens and Mercator 1

During the period between March 23th and April 20th 2015, the WiFi network (Eduroam and RU-guest) will be renewed in the Huygens building, its surroundings and in Mercator 1 (floors 0-4). All existing access points are going to be replaced by a new type and the number of access points will be expanded to increase the bandwidth, coverage and capacity. The work involved will be performed by JS Network Solutions, commissioned by the ISC and under the direction of the UVB. Although the employees of JS will work mainly in the corridor areas, access to some offices and/or labs is necessary, of course after consulting the residents, secretariats and lab-managers. The work will start in Huygens wing 1 towards wing 8 and will finish in Mercator 1. The renewal of the WiFi network in the other faculty buildings is expected to take place in 2016.

SURFdrive: safer than Dropbox

The ISC has announced that SURFdrive is available for RU employees. This gives a maximum of 100 GB of Dropbox-like storage for work-related files, that should not have the security classification critical or sensitive. Data is stored within Dutch borders, the users remain the owners of their own data, and SURF itself provides no information to third parties, which makes SURFdrive more secure than Dropbox. Earlier SURF made SURFfilesender available, with which you can send larger files more secure than with alternatives like WeTransfer.

Total Vodafone coverage in Huygens with first Ericsson Radio Dot in the world

Coverage for mobile phones on the Vodafone network, as used for Vodafone Wireless Office has been extended to the basements and transport corridors of the Huygens building. This became possible, because Ericsson and Vodafone were interested in doing a pilot in the Huygens building with the first live enterprise deployment of the Radio Dot system worldwide. This is in addition to the distributed antenna system built in 2011, which was necessary because of the similarity of the Huygens building with a Faraday cage. This reminds some veterans of June 1987, when a pilot was carried out at the Faculty of Science by PTT (now KPN), Philips, SURF and the university with the first PABX with a large amount of data traffic in The Netherlands. This PABX is still in use for speech phone calls in the periphery of the Huygens building.

Student.ru.nl and fnwi.ru.nl mail also accessible through Roundcube

During the weekend of November 12, 13 and 14, the ISC will move the mail of @student.ru.nl from the old RU Share service to the new RU Exchange service. This can be accessed with a browser via RU Exchange webmail, but also via C&CZ Roundcube webmail, by choosing mail.ru.nl in the drop-down menu. Advantages of Roundcube are that you can set multiple sender addresses (via Settings->Identities) and that the Science LDAP addressbook is available, which contains all Science staff and students. The RU Exchange AD address book has very little FNWI scientific staff. Furthermore Roundcube has a more powerful and modern interface independent of the browser used. You can also leave out the extra RU\ before the U- or S-number when logging in. A disadvantage w.r.t. the standard Outlook Web Access might be that Roundcube does not have calendar support, it is only an IMAP mailclient.

Notice of change in Microsoft licenses as of 2015

The ISC let us know that by January 1, 2015 there will be a new licensing agreement with Microsoft through Surfmarket. The main difference appears to be that the license for Microsoft Office on Windows PCs owned by the University, will be followed by a license for Office 365 Plan E3 (formerly A3) for all RU staff. This will most likely mean that installing Office on Windows PCs and iPads/iPhones that are private property of RU staff will be possible under the license as of January 1, 2015.

Terminal server ts2 and print server drukker from NWI to B-FAC

Due to decommissioning of the NWI.RU.NL Active Directory domain, on November 16 the terminal server ts2 and the printer server for departmental printers drukker will be moved from NWI.RU.NL to B-FAC.RU.NL. This change is of consequence for logging on to the terminal server ts2 and for connecting to printers from the print server drukker.

If you are logging on to the terminal server ts2 using NWI\loginname, you will have to change this to B-FAC\loginname. In the case of the print server drukker, if connecting to printers using \\drukker.nwi.ru.nl\printername, you have to change this to \drukker.b-fac.ru.nl\\printername. The easiest way to do this is to remove and reconnect the printer from the server.

That ru.nl mail address has apparently been used as a registration address in some website, that has been hacked. You must assume that passwords that have been used in such a hacked site are now known to Internet criminals. Therefore, you should never use that password anywhere again. Furthermore, everyone is advised to use different passwords for different websites/applications. Often you do not even have to remember these passwords, as they can be easily reset. In other cases, you can use a password vault such as KeePass, which is available for Windows, Apple, Android and Linux.

Secure network for vulnerable pcs attached to equipment

Often PCs attached to expensive measuring equipment do not get software updates, because the risk is too high that afterwards there is a problem with the equipment. In those cases C&CZ network administration can help by isolating the PCs on a separate shielded network, with specific rules for the network traffic allowed to and from that network segment. It is possible to write data to a network drive, that can be read (but not written) from other locations. Also traffic to the C&CZ printer server can be allowed, so no local printer is necessary. Departments such as Microbiology, HFML and FELIX have been using this shield for years. A recent vulnerability that is a huge risk for for Linux systems without software updates, is Shellshock. Windows systems will be very vulnerable unless they have the Microsoft patches that are published on Patch Tuesday.

Next Thursday morning, April 24 the ISC network admins will change a setting in the RU-firewall, as a result of a few reported problems with halting transfers of large data files. The firewall does TCP Sequence Number Randomization for security reasons. Therefore TCP SACK will be disabled in the firewall, which makes modern hosts that use SACK no longer having halted connections through the firewall.

ArcGIS campus license?

The ArcGIS (Geographical Information System) software suite is used increasingly within the Nijmegen School of Management, so much that the current number of available licenses is no longer sufficient. They therefore want to know whether other faculties want to participate in a campus license for ArcGIS. A campus license for three years costs €5500 the first year and €8,500 subsequent years. If interested, please contact C&CZ.

Peage MFP Huygens building not available on April 28/29/30

April 28/29/30, the Peage multifunctional (printer/copier/scanner) and the Peage top-up unit near the restaurant in the Huygens building cannot be used. The ISC will investigate then if Peage can also be made available for employees instead of only for students. On April 28, the MFP will be moved to the test location, on April 30, it will be moved back.

Change passwords after Heartbleed OpenSSL bug

If you don't want to read the details below: it is advised to change the Science password on the DIY website. The same holds for the RU password and other passwords for Internet services.

April 7, 2014, a two-year-old vulnerability was announced in several versions of OpenSSL. OpenSSL is used for encrypting network traffic. Because of this vulnerability, an attacker could have retrieved the secret key of a service, with which traffic could be decrypted. In addition to this, due to this vulnerability an attacker could read the memory of the service, thereby retrieving sensitive information like passwords.

After the announcement of this Heart Bleed OpenSSL leak all vulnerable C&CZ services were automatically repaired. On Thursday, April 10th, we have deployed new certificates for these services. The old certificates will be revoked. If one has used one of these C&CZ services, it is wise to change the Science password on the DIY website. The old password could have become known to an attacker. For the full list of C&CZ services that were vulnerable and references to vulnerable external services, see the C&CZ certificate page. The most used ones are:

  • Mail users:
    • squirrel.science.ru.nl: The old Science webmail service was vulnerable since January 29, 2014.
    • roundcube.science.ru.nl: The new Science webmail service.
    • autoconfig.science.ru.nl: The website for automatic configuration of mail clients like Thunderbird and Outlook.
  • Lecturers: dossiers.science.ru.nl and eduview.science.ru.nl
  • MySQL database owners: phpmyadmin.science.ru.nl
  • FNWI news letter editors: newsroom.science.ru.nl

XP support ends on April 8!

As announced before, from April 8 Microsoft will no longer support Windows XP. Therefore C&CZ urges everyone to change to a different operating system before that date, if possible. XP computers that cannot be upgraded, e.g. because they are attached to a measuring device which requires XP, can be moved to a shielded part of the network. PC's can be upgraded to a C&CZ managed Windows 7 and/or Ubuntu 12.04 PC. On a Windows7 managed PC, a department can have local administrator (localadmin) rights. One can also ask C&CZ to just install Windows 7 and/or Ubuntu 12.04 on a PC, after which the user can manage the PC her/himself. Please contact the C&CZ helpdesk if you want to make use of this possibility. Please note that if a PC doesn't have the required hardware, one will have to buy new hardware, e.g. a memory upgrade or a new PC entirely.

Password lock-out only after 10 false attempts

Until today, a Science account was locked out after 3 consecutive false login attempts. This has changed: now only after 10 false attempts the account is locked out for 30 minutes. This way the behaviour for the Science account and for the RU account are identical.

Note that you are not forced to change the Science or RU password on a regular basis. Yet we advise everyone to do so as changing passwords once in a while adds to the security. But please think of all devices where this password is stored (laptop, smartphone, home PC, etc.).

The latest version of Matlab, R2014a, is available for departments that have licenses. The software and license codes can be obtained through a mail to postmaster for those entitled to it. The software can also be found on the install-disc. The C&CZ-managed 64-bit Linux machines will soon have this version installed, an older version (/opt/matlab-R2013b/bin/matlab) is still available temporarily. The C&CZ-managed Windows machines will not receive a new version during the semester to prevent problems with version dependencies in current lectures.

SURFnet FileSender: send large files securely

Since February 24, securely transfering large files has become possible for employees with a @science.ru.nl mail address with the experimental version of SURFnet FileSender. Files up to 100GB can be sent to a maximum of 25 recipients. You can also send others a "guest voucher" with which they can make use of this service. The transfer of files is encrypted (https) to a server of SURFnet in the Netherlands. FileSender is often more useful than alternatives because of the maximum size or the information security. The SURFnet FileSender service is based on the FileSender project, in which SURFnet participates.

F-Secure security software: for Mac and Android too

On self-managed computers that have been purchased with RU funds or through external funding for the benefit of Radboud University, you are allowed to install the RU paid version of F-Secure. There is a version for MS Windows 7 and 8 and there is a Mac version.

The price of F-Secure for privately owned computers (Windows PCs, Macs en Android) has been lowered for employees as well as for students to € 2 per year. At Surfspot search for Secure. Of course, you can install different security software instead, like the free Panda for Windows 8, the free Avast voor Windows 7 or possibly the free Microsoft Security Essentials for Windows, that is only seldom recommended.

Scanning on the Konica Minolta MFPs

Update: as of February 27, the settings of all Konica Minolta MFP network switch ports have been changed. Please report remaining problems to C&CZ.

Scanning to e-mail sometimes doesn't (didn't?) work on the KM MFPs. It can temporarily be resolved by switching the machine off and on again. An alternative is scanning to a USB stick. Log in at the MFP with the scan pin, put a document in the feeder or on the document glass, select Scan and then plug the USB stick into the USB port on the right side of the MFP, on the top side. After a few seconds the MFP recognizes the USB stick and presents the choice "Save a document to external memory". Choose OK and press Start. See also the RU manual on the RU-page about the MFP's.

RU uniform print costs

As of February 1, C&CZ will change the [http://wiki.science.ru.nl/cncz/Printers_en_printen?setlang=en#.5BKosten.5D.5BCosts.5D print costs], in agreement with the RU Executive Board decision to make print costs uniform within Radboud University. The price for black&white A4 will increase 5.7%. Costs for A4 color, A3 black&white and A3 color will be lowered by 18%, 54% and 31% respectively. Because we hope that the C&CZ print system will be replaced by the RU wide Peage system in the near future, we will not immediately prioritize to adapt the C&CZ print system to make single-sided more expensive than double-sided, as is now the case elsewhere on campus.

MobaXterm: powerful X11/SSH/etc. client for Windows

MobaXterm is now available on the S-disk. It is a powerful and easily usable alternative for X11/SSH software like Xming, Xwin32, WinSCP and Putty. From the MobaXterm website: "MobaXterm is an enhanced terminal for Windows with an X11 server, a tabbed SSH client and several other network tools for remote computing (VNC, RDP, telnet, rlogin). MobaXterm brings all the essential Unix commands to Windows desktop, in a single portable exe file which works out of the box." The support of OpenGL could also be a reason to start using MobaXterm. If you use it professionally, you should consider subscribing to MobaXterm Professional Edition. We already reported that the support of X-win32 ends January 31, 2014. If you still need to switch, MobaXterm is a good choice.

Xafax copier units removed

As announced before, the Xafax copy units will be removed, starting July 23, 2013. Shortly therafter, the Ricoh MFP's will be removed. The new Konica Minolta MFP's have been available the last few weeks. FNWI-emplyees can get PIN codes for copying from C&CZ. Therefore we expect no problems from the removal of the Xafax units. Students can make copies by using the Peage MFP near the restaurant, or make copies by scanning and printing afterwards.

End of Science wireless, enter Eduroam

In the near future the preparations will start for the Eduroam wireless network in the Faculty of Science buildings and the increase of capacity of the wireless network. This also marks the end of the Science wireless network, as was announced earlier.

The work will probably start on August 5. Over the course of a few weeks the Science network will gradually disappear while the Eduroam network appears. Because of this transition period we strongly advise to switch all wireless devices to ru-wlan before that time.

  Affected     : Users of horde webmail and users wanting to send mail to e.g. hotmail.com

Horde webmail again appeared to be misused for sending spam. This could happen because a naive user gave the Science password to phishers/spammers. After first stopping horde, this night we disabled the account of the naive user and restarted horde. This morning it appeared that this short spam-outbreak had caused administrators of hotmail.com to add our mail server to their blacklist. Therefore we switched the IP-number of this mail server and asked Microsoft to remove the old IP address from their blacklist.

BASS and RU password the same

On Saturday June 1st, the password for BASS (Oracle) becomes the same as for the other concern applications, i.e. to logon to BASS after June 1 the U number and RU password are used. The separate password for BASS will disappear.

At the same time the web address (URL) of BASS changes to: https://bass.ru.nl/ Those who logon to BASS directly may want to change their existing bookmark or desktop shortcut. Those who use the port forwarder to login to BASS will have to change one or more settings as well. More information about this can be found on the BASS page.

Linux login server lilo3 replaces lilo1

A new Ubuntu 12.04 Linux login server lilo3.science.ru.nl is available. Therefore the six year old login server lilo1 will be phased out soon. The name lilo, that always points to the newest/fastest login server, will also be moved from the four year old lilo2 to the new lilo3. The new lilo3 is a Dell PowerEdge R410 with 2 Xeon L5640 processors and 32 GB memory. Please remove the old entry of lilo(.science.ru.nl) from your ~/.ssh/known_hosts file. For cautious people wanting to check the fingerprint of the public RSA key before supplying their Science-password to the new server: 3e:b9:89:4d:53:9b:8f:4a:97:b2:a1:c3:0d:74:34:2c.

Ricoh and Xafax replaced by Konica Minolta

In a few weeks we will place new Konica Minolta (KM) multifunctionals (MFP's) next to the Ricoh's and some other places. After a short period, in which one can switch from Ricoh to KM, we will remove most of the Ricoh's. Until July we will have a Ricoh with Xafax-pole in a few places, so one can empty the Xafax-cards. Because the RU-wide Peage-project is still not in operation for employees, the new KM's can be used like the Ricoh's. The only difference is that the Xafax-poles will be removed because the contract with Xafax ends and cannot be continued. Copying on th KM's therefore will be only be possible after entering a code. We will contact departments about the code and about the budget/kostenplaats from which the copy costs can be reimbursed. If you do not have a code, copying can be accomplished by scanning and printing.

CMS functional manager Wim Janssen stationed at C&CZ

On April 15 Wim G.H.M. Janssen (IMAPP and facultary CMS functional manager) will "move in" with C&CZ. Wim will remain employed by IMAPP but will be able to perform his work more effectively from his new location at C&CZ because of our frequent collaboration. Moreover C&CZ will take over some of his tasks thus creating the possibility for new developments. There may be some confusion: for many years C&CZ also has an employee Wim P.J. Janssen, so more often a Wim-Wim-situation will arise.

Electronic cost declaration through i-Expense, also from home/Internet

Since the introduction of i-Expense, the electronic cost declaration module in BASS-Finlog - the financial computer system of our university, the number of BASS users has increased enormously. New users need to be aware whether they can access BASS directly or only through the so called Port Forwarder. Recently, access from home/Internet has been made possible if one uses VPN. More information on this can be found on the BASS page and in a previous [news article] about using BASS in combination with the RU firewall.

Logging on to BASS may be cumbersome or impossible from certain workstations because the BASS infrastructure does not support all kinds of PC-systems seamlessly. Cost declarations on paper are allowed if logging on to BASS fails for some reason, until the logon difficulties are solved. The central organisation and C&CZ work together to this end.

Booking system for scientific instruments

In a collaboration between the Science faculty and the UMCN, C&CZ has built a web application for the booking of scientific instruments of the Microscopic Imaging Centre (MIC), the Gemeenschappelijk Instrumentarium (GI) and Organic Chemistry. The web application can be found at https://bookings.science.ru.nl. Because the application was written as a generic solution, it will soon also be used for the lending system of laptops by the Library of Science. If you have a booking/reservation question which may be solved using this application, please contact C&CZ.

Safe disposal of ICT equipment and data carriers

For the disposal of ICT-equipment (PCs, laptops, servers, etc.) and data carriers (hard disks, tapes) which may contain confidential data, a safe waste channel is now available. These can be handed over to an employee of Logistics Center. So, it’s not necesarry to remove hard disks from PCs yourself.

New Functional Manager CMS

For many years everyone at FNWI who was involved in websites based on the RU Content Management System (CMS) relied on Peter Klok for help and advice. In IT terms Peter was our functional manager. Because of Peter's retirement this role was taken over by C&CZ. This means that all support questions regarding the websites of the Faculty of Science, regardless of the underlying technique, can be directed to C&CZ. In practice the support task for the CMS is in the hands of Wim G.H.M. Janssen, IT specialist at the IMAPP institute. C&CZ (especially Fred Melssen) will function as Wim's backup.

Replacement of Ricoh multifunctionals by Konica Minolta

The European tender for multifunctionals (printer/copier/scanner) for the university was won by Konica Minolta. This means that the current Ricoh machines will be replaced. There is a project to make the print/copy/scan system Péage suitable for employees. The printing and copying costs for employees will be charged to their "aanstellingskostenplaats", i.e. the current budget groups will disappear. Until this project is completed successfully, the C&CZ printbudget system will be used.

  • Since the new Peage system will not support Xafax copycards, it is advised to minimize your local stock of Xafax copycards.
  • The first Konica Minolta MFP's will be placed for the expansion to Huygens 2.0 (Mercator 1).
  • The first replacement of Ricoh-machines in FNWI will be in April: the Peage printer Watt near the restaurant.

Matlab R2013a

The latest version of Matlab, R2013a, is available for departments that have bought licenses. The software and license codes can be acquired through a mail to postmaster for those entitled to it. The software can also be found on the install-disc. The C&CZ-managed 64-bit Linux machines will soon have this version installed, an older version (/opt/matlab-R2012b/bin/matlab) is still available temporarily. The C&CZ-managed Windows machines will receive this version too.

More IP-numbers for ru-wlan and Science (wireless)

Monday, March 4th 2013 at 18:00 hours, the number of IP numbers that is available in the FNWI buildings for ru-wlan and Science was doubled, as was announced shortly before. Because ru-wlan moved to a new range, users of ru-wlan lost connectivity for at most 15 minutes. There was already a plan to replace ru-wlan and Science within the FNWI buildings by the RU-wide Eduroam and ru-wlan, but the wireless network usage had grown so fast that we could not wait for this plan to be realized. The week before, some wireless users at times could not even get an IP address, although the lease time had been brought down to 30 minutes. Therefore this temporary measure became necessary on such short notice. Because there are more IP numbers available now, more users can nowswitch from Science to ru-wlan wireless, in preparation for the realization of the plan mentioned above.

Phishing mail: "Belangrijke boodschap met betrekking tot uw Radboud Universiteit Webmail" en "Fwd: Your e-mail will expire soon"

Recently a number of employees of the Faculty of Science received a phishing email with the subject "Belangrijke boodschap met betrekking tot uw Radboud Universiteit Webmail" and content "Nieuw Belangrijk Veiligheid Bericht Alert! Inloggen om het probleem op te lossen." Others received mail with subject "Fwd: Your e-mail will expire soon". The link provided in the mail points to a copy of our Horde webmail service. Big differences are:

  • the URL is not within science.ru.nl
  • it is not a secure https connection, the lock is not present
  • the account name and password that you type in, do not arrive at C&CZ servers, but at Internet criminals. They can then access all files and mail of that Science account. Usually the criminals try to use the user credentials to send spam via our mail servers. This is something we notice; in such a case C&CZ will disable the user account a.s.a.p. to prevent further abuse of the account and to prevent our mail servers from ending up on black lists.

It is not the first time we see a phishing attack specifically aimed at Science-users and it will most probably not be the last time either. Please stay alert! If you want to read more about phishing, please see this monthly security newsletter.

Miro printer: end of maintenance contract

Year after year some users preferred the Xerox Phaser color printer miro over the Ricoh Aficio laserprinters for its different (wax) color technique. It is not possible to have a maintenance contract in 2013 for miro. That doesn't mean that it's impossible to use miro, but it does mean that miro will be removed when a major hardware failure occurs in 2013.

Phishing mail: Update Your Web Mailbox

Recently a number of employees of the Faculty of Science received a phishing email with the subject "Update Your Web Mailbox !!!" This email is supposedly sent by "Science.Ru.Nl Administrator" and tries to lure the recipients into giving away their login credentials. It is not the first time we see a phishing attack specifically aimed at Science-users and it will most probably not be the last time either. The mail contains a link to a shortened URL under http://goo.gl/ . If you fall for this and click on the link it leads you to a (now deleted) Google Docs site. If you are gullible enough to log in with your Science (or RU) credentials, then these become known to Internet criminals. This means that your account and all of your files and email are accessible by those criminals. This can go undetected for a long time until the user credentials are abused in such a way that the effects becomes visible.

Recommendations after nu.nl hack

The popular Dutch news website NU.nl has been compromised and altered to serve a malicious worm to those who visited it on March 14, 2012 between 11:30 and 12:30. PC's with older versions of Adobe Reader and Java may have been infected with the Sinowal worm, that is designed to steal passwords, online banking information and other sensitive data. We heard reports that up-to-date installations of F-Secure Client Security blocked this malware. According to ComputerIdee only a few security software suites recognized this malware. The version of Hitmanpro mentioned there has been copied to the Install network share, for employees and students who want to scan their PC.

General recommendations to limit risks:

  • Always update all software, especially browsers, mail clients and software used to show content from the Internet: Java, PDF-readers (Adobe, ...), Office suites, Flash, ...
  • Never trust a compromised system again: Clean the Master Boot Record, e.g. with TDSSkiller by Kaspersky and do a fresh install of the OS, with all updates available.

Please use ru-wlan instead of Science wireless!

In the near future the wireless access points in the Huygens building and the buildings around it, will be replaced by new ones, based on a new technique. The Science wireless network will then no longer be available. Therefore please switch over to using the ru-wlan wireless network, that is available before and after. One can use ru-wlan with U-number and RU-password, but also with and Science-password. After the switch, faster (wireless-N) access points wille be used in busy areas. After the switch the eduroam wireless network will be available too, one can use that with and RU-password, but also with and Science-password. Before the switch, eduroam is only available near the Huygens building on the terrace behind the restaurant. In the future ru-wlan will be switched off, only eduroam will survive. Furthermore, there is a plan to have more wireless access outside of the Huygens building, i.e. at the central entrance and the grass behind the Huygens building.

Which computer lab has free PCs?

Since recently, the website welke.tk shows which computer lab has free pc's. Advantages of this site over the existing current usage page are that it is realtime and that one can immediately see whether a lab is or will be reserved for lectures. The website welke.tk can be viewed on smartphones too. The website has been created by Bas Westerbaan in cooperation with C&CZ, the design was made by Judith van Stegeren, Ruben Nijveld helped with mobile support. The source of the reserved hours is Ruuster.nl.

Teachers: test your course software in the summer!

C&CZ plans to reinstall all pc's in the computer labs with 64-bit Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04 during the summer holidays. Because it is not guaranteed that all software just runs with these versions of the operating systems, you are advised to reserve time for testing purposes. Test systems will be available at C&CZ in time.

Network problems after change of January 28 solved

January 28, the UCI network management installed new software and a new configuration on the Science Faculty router, among other things to prepare for IP telephony. The following week some network problems were reported, which have been traced to a high cpu load of the router. After a few temporary measures were taken, on Monday January 28 18:00-18:45 a new configuration was installed, after which the cpu load hasn't been high again and the network problems appear to have been solved more permanently.

Split-view DNS could influence Internet at home

Anyone using at home a science.ru.nl nameserver like ns1.science.ru.nl, should remove these DNS-servers from the list of DNS-servers, because we started using split-view DNS. With split-view DNS, we can give internal (RU on campus) pc's answers differing from those given to external pc's. The UCI introduced this a few months ago for e.g. the DNS zones ru.nl and heyendaal.net to increase IT security.

Never react to an e-mail that asks for your password!

A few days ago one of our users replied to an e-mail that apparently was sent by "support" and asked for username and password. This account was later misused to send hundred thousands spam-mails through our mail server. This resulted in the blacklisting of our outgoing mail server in e.g. the blacklists of Windows Live Hotmail. The fastest way to remedy this is to give our outgoing mail server a different IP-address, which we did this morning. Lesson: Never reply to an e-mail that asks for your username and password! It causes a lot of trouble for us and other users.

Milestone Linux Compute Cluster: 512 CPU-cores and 1024 GPU/CUDA-cores

Early 2006 a faculty Linux compute cluster was started by the purchase of 4-core rackmountable servers by several departments. The latest additions to the cluster, a machine with 48 CPU-cores and a machine with 12 CPU-cores and 1024 CUDA GPU-cores in 2 NVIDIA Tesla M2090 cards, brought the size of the cluster to these milestone figures. Source code has to be rewritten to make use of CUDA-cores. The latest version of Matlab has support for the use of CUDA-cores. For workstations and servers, including these compute servers, Fedora Linux is gradually being replaced by Ubuntu LTS Linux.

BASS and single logon

For security reasons direct access to the concern application BASS used to be blocked, even from within the RU internal network; one had to logon to the Port Forwarder first which meant two logons in a row. With the RU central firewall in place the first logon is not necessary anymore (although still possible) for PC's which are located behind the firewall from a network topology point of view. A significant amount of the PC's in FNWI have already been relocated behind the firewall. On the BASS page under System Configuration you can see the current status of your PC and how to configure your PC to be able to switch to single logon.

Mobile telephony: coverage and future

The coverage of the Vodafone mobile network in the Huygens building has been improved considerably, it should be good in the whole building now. We plan to connect the mobile networks of KPN and T-Mobile to the newly installed Distributed Antenna System as well. The improved coverage is a necessary step to use Vodafone Wireless Office, which allows phone calls to and from cell phones using the RU-internal five-digit numbers. The future of enterprise telephony for Radboud University consists of Voice over IP for desktop phones and Wireless Office for cell phones.

Versioning of text and source code: Subversion hosting

Are you developing software? Do you write code? You've probably created some zip files of working versions to fall back to. Sounds familiar? You can now use the Subversion service of C&CZ. Subversion supports you with versioning of source code files. Using Subversion, progress becomes visible and there's always an 'undo button'. Ultimately, it's a nice way to manage any kind of collaborative work where multiple individuals are editing the same files. The Subversion service is available for people with a Science account. Repository access is also possible for people from outside the faculty.
