In order to bring the CfA network into compliance with both NIST and
Smithsonian polices, a formal Remote Access Zone has been implemented,
into which users must authenticate prior to connecting to internal
(CF and HEA production) computers
The CF is the Information Technology department at the CfA. The CF
provides an array of IT infrastructure and scientific computing
services for SAO and Harvard scientific, technical, and administrative
staff at the CfA.
