  The NeXT corporate internet consists of several Ethernets,
  an Apollo ring net, several Appletalk nets, and a factory floor
  network.  These networks are located at two sites in Palo Alto,
  California and the Fremont, California factory.  T1 links connect
  these three sites.  Numerous gateways tie the whole thing together.
  On these networks we have NeXT machines, SUN 3/50's
  and 3/60's, and Apple Macintoshes.  We will be using Kerberos
  to authenticate access to a variety of network services, some of which
  are remote file systems (including NFS), and name services.

Dan Kolkowitz (Stanford)

Stanford's total network based  environment consists of more than one thousand 
computers inter-connected on Stanford SUNeT network.  Most of the computers
are Unix based workstations and minicomputers, the exceptions being DEC
System 20's running TOPS-20.  The principal workstation vendors are Sun,
DEC, IBM, and HP.  

We are looking to provide vendor independent secure services across
Stanford.  The proposed model is similar enough to Kerberos' that we
hope to use substantial components from it.  The major component of the
application would be authentication of a user requesting a resource.  We
intend to first use this for secure login and to later extend it to
general network services.  The version of secure login would be
implemented on all of the above mentioned architectures, including the
20's.  In addition we hope to incorporate the secure protocols in our
ethernet terminal servers to provide secure login on any ethernet

Patrick Powell <>
University of Minnesota

  We are currently running a site with an ENCORE Multimax,
  SEQUENT Symmetry (in Sept.),  Sun 2s, Sun3s, Sun4s,
  HP 300 workstations,  VAXen (VMS, 4.3, and ULTRIX),
  MicroVaxes,  and a couple of hundred personal computers.
  We have 3 major nets:  the fibre net backbone,  which connects the
  Univerisity,  the CS net,  which interconnects the CS department,
  and several subnets.  In addition there are several other subnets
  which we actively communicate with.

  What we want to do is to implement a secure mail/news/lineprinter spooler
  system that will allow us to use our current network AND have some
  reasonable control over it.

			        About USENET

USENET (Users’ Network) was a bulletin board shared among many computer
systems around the world. USENET was a logical network, sitting on top
of several physical networks, among them UUCP, BLICN, BERKNET, X.25, and
the ARPANET. Sites on USENET included many universities, private companies
and research organizations. See USENET Archives.

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO vs IBM.
