Security

Security Features

Planning and

As a network device that passes information across the network, the

implementing

MasterSwitch PDU is subject to the same exposure as other devices on

security features

the network.

 

Use the information in this section to plan and implement the security

 

features appropriate for your environment.

Port assignments

If a Telnet, FTP, or Web server uses anon-standardport, a user must

 

specify the port when using the client interface, such as a Web browser.

 

The non-standardport address becomes an extra “password,” hiding

 

the server to provide an additional level of security. The TCP ports for

 

which the Telnet, FTP, and Web servers listen are initially set at the

 

standard “well known ports” for the protocols.To hide the interfaces, use

 

any port numbers from 5000 to 65535.

User names,

All user names, passwords, and community names for SNMP are

passwords,

transferred over the network as plain text. A user who is capable of

community names

monitoring the network traffic can determine the user names and

 

passwords required to log in to the Administrator, Device Manager, and

 

Outlet User accounts of the Control Console or Web interface of a

 

MasterSwitch PDU. This security limitation of the protocols affects any

 

device using Telnet, a Web server, or an SNMP version 1 agent.

Security

Authentication

Authentication

The MasterSwitch PDU controls access by providing basic

versus encryption

authentication through user names, passwords, and IP addresses, but

 

provides no type of encryption. These basic security features are

 

sufficient for most environments, in which sensitive data is not being

 

transferred. To ensure that data and communication between the

 

MasterSwitch PDU and the client interfaces, such as Telnet and the

 

Web browser, cannot be captured, you can provide a greater level of

 

security by enabling MD5 authentication (described below) for the Web

 

interface.

MD5

The Web interface option for MD5 authentication enables a higher level

authentication

of access security than the basic HTTP authentication scheme. The

(Web interface)

MD5 scheme is similar toCHAP andPAP remote access protocols.

 

Enabling MD5 implements the following security features:

 

• The Web server requests a user name and a password phrase

 

(distinct from the password). The user name and password

 

phrase are not transmitted over the network, as they are in

 

basic authentication. Instead, a Java login applet combines the

 

user name, password phrase, and a unique session challenge

 

number to calculate an MD5 hash number. Only the hash num-

 

ber is returned to the server to verify that the user has the cor-

 

rect login information; MD5 authentication does not reveal the

 

login information.

 

• In addition to the login authentication, each form post for config-

 

uration or control operations is authenticated with a unique chal-

 

lenge and hash response.

 

• After the authentication login, subsequent page access is

 

restricted by IP addresses and a hidden session cookie. (You

 

must have cookies enabled in your browser.) Pages are trans-

 

mitted in their plain-textform, with no encryption.

Authentication continued

MD5

authentication If you useMD5 authentication, which is available only for the Web(Web interface), interface, disable the less secure interfaces, including Telnet,FTP, andcontinued SNMP. ForSNMP, you can disablewrite-onlyaccess so that read

access and trap facilities are still available.

Although MD5 authentication provides a much higher level of security than theplain-textaccess methods, complete protection from security breaches is almost impossible to achieve.Well-configuredfirewalls are an essential element in an overall security scheme. For additional information onMD5 authentication, seeRFC document #1321 at the Web site of the Internet Engineering Task Force. ForCHAP, seeRFC document #1994.
