Re: Initial Security assesment for a large university - what to ask?

Hi Camilo,

You might also want to ask for ACL's for these, since things like IPS, some servers and switches can probably be accessed only from certain machines. Also asking them for documentation that they've written about system set-p, IPS rules, etc, may be useful. Finally, you want to know where all the logs / alarms go (assuming they don't have a central log server), and where to reconfigure them to point to new emails / pager numbers.

Also what not to do to trigger IDS (incase it has some sort of active response)


Hope this helps!

Stan

Dear friends,

I've been asked to be part of a large project. A local college (in Cancun,MX) is changing administration, and as a part of it, seems like they are changing the whole IT team. My orders were clear "Make a list of all that they need to give to you, security-related".

I'm thinking:

- root logins and passwords for all servers/routers/etc


... and I stopped there. Any other ideas on what I should demand from them?

Thanks,
Camilo Olea
