We're setting  up a digital forensic machine for Special Collections which
we want quarantined from the rest of our network due to the risk of viruses
on older media. Our precautions have been pretty basic. The machine has no
wireless card, and while it has ethernet through the motherboard we will
have that functionality disabled by the time the machine is deployed. It's
also being located in a space with no network drops, which, given the
bulkiness of the computer, makes it unlikely that anyone would even try to
plug it into the network.

Best regards,

*Jason Bengtson*
