Re: a question about having College ID number as part of directory information

It generally depends on what that number is needed for.   If it's faculty convenience you can probably provide a 
separate way to view without further concern.

Student ID numbers generally have an odd way into creeping into other systems/processes without enough thought where 
exposure is a major concern (card access/stored value sytems/parking/password resets).

Subject: [SECURITY] a question about having College ID number as part of directory information

HI All,

This may have been addressed before but I am being asked if providing a college ID number on our LDAP and other 
directory services is a security risk.

I'm feeling that it isn't but I'm press to put a statement behind it that will put people at ease.

Thanks,

Roy Galang
