The YaleGuest network is insecure (open and unencrypted). 

The YaleGuest network must NOT be used by members of the University's Covered Components (or any unit possessing confidential or regulated data), designated as such for purposes of complying with the privacy provisions of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. The Covered Components are: (1) the Group Health Plan Component; and (2) the Covered Health Care Component, comprised of the Yale School of Medicine (YSM), School of Nursing, Department of Psychology clinics and Yale University Health Services (YUHS).
