That's the *real* challenge of trying to secure a network - the vast gap

you can usually actually deploy with the mandate and financing you actually
got. :)

Plus, in the case of VT, many of the machines on campus are owned, for
instance, by the students who use them.  It's a little harder to impose
something like a domain and SUS on them -- when it's their own machine. 

The current policy, AFAIK, is "if your machine does something bad, we'll
turn off the network port and sort it out later."
