The Stanford Network Registration Tool (SNRT) runs a number of security checks on your computer, including checking for the latest security patches, searching for malicious software, making sure you are running some type of virus protection software, and making sure you are running an automated update process. The tool will direct you to required and recommended software updates and applications. This tool was developed by IT Services; click here for a full description of SNRT actions. When a computer passes the SNRT in the residences, the tool automatically notifies Residential Computing to allow you to register your device.
