The Compsoc Network

At various times in the past, Compsoc has run a network of machines accessible by members. Currently we have just one machine , providing basic web and email services to the society. All the society's machines are looked after by our team of System Administrators .

You can obtain a copy of the sysadmin team's GPG key , and the CompSoc Certificate Authority root certificate from here.

Those running websites on CompSoc servers should be aware of our URI Policy .
