    The Division of Information Technology provides and supports core technology services that are essential to the successful functioning of the university. These include ongoing services, innovations to existing services, and a select number of new services that add functionality or build on existing capabilities. The current strategic plan provides guidance and direction for our service portfolio through 2018. Our annual report for FY 2018 provides an opportunity to review and reflect on the outcomes of the past year, to assess the effectiveness of the division in adapting to meet the university’s needs, and to provide actionable insights that support the ongoing work and continued development of the Division of Information Technology. This report is organized by the division’s “pillars,” which were introduced in the 2012-2018 Division of IT Strategic Plan, and upon which we in the division have focused our priorities. It is also informed by current visioning efforts including Beyond Boundaries and our own internal initiative to develop a new strategic plan for our organization.
  • Information Technology Strategic Plan for 2018-2024
    (Virginia Tech. Information Technology, 2019-06-06)
    This strategic plan for the Division of IT provides a high-level framework for a continuous strategic planning and assessment process and for the initiatives in support of strategies, all within the context of Virginia Tech’s strategic plan and long-range vision: “The Virginia Tech Difference: Advancing Beyond Boundaries.” The plan lays out our objectives, goals and an aspirational road map for the division with contributions by and feedback from key stakeholders across the university. Ultimately, our plan is the way we serve the university: to help the university achieve its missions, realize its vision, and meet its goals. Information technology is a critical enabler of higher education and permeates every aspect of the Virginia Tech experience, both on and off campus, the experience of our prospective students and their families, the learning and quality of life of our students, and the needs of research and teaching faculty, administrative personnel, alumni and our communities.

  • Method and system for dynamically obscuring addresses in IPv6
    (United States Patent and Trademark Office, 2016-10-04)
    The invention dynamically obscures network and transport layer addresses of packets to achieve anonymity, including authentication privacy, as well as protection against tracking and traffic correlation and certain classes of network attacks by combining both intrusion protection with anonymity, avoiding the use of a separate management unit outside the host for distribution of obscured addresses. The invention enables a host to automatically configure obscured addresses and determine the obscured address of the intended recipient without outside involvement, computing addresses based on a set of parameters, and to operate without re-authentication whenever an address changes. The invention enables encryption of the packet payload to prevent traffic correlation. The technology of the invention can be implemented embedded on a host device or as a connected gateway device and requires negligible configuration and is therefore transparent to hosts.
