Background
-----------------

The product employs a portion of legacy code as referenced in the original post. This is used for the product key and 
some database entries but whilst the strength of the encryption being used here may be a problem for the NNT licensing 
team, there is no genuine security risk for device data. This portion of code has subsequently been replaced in 
Versions 5 and patches are available from www.nntws.com

Change Tracker works on the principle of layered, multi-dimensional security in line with the PCI DSS that it is 
commonly used to underpin. The secure commissioning process should include standard lockdown and access-restriction 
procedures for the Change Tracker server and database server used for device and configuration data storage. Access 
security should also  be complemented with monitoring using a SIEM solution such as NNT Log Tracker, so any access to 
the Change Tracker server, the Change Tracker console program or the database will be logged and alerted as unusual 
activity. 

NNT take security of our customer systems extremely seriously. Anyone with any concerns regarding best practise in 
Production System security should contact us for further assistance. 

Regarding any vulnerabilities discovered by independent security researchers in the future, we would prefer these are 
reported to us at support () nntws com before being published. This was not the case in this instance, delaying our 
opportunity to respond. Thank you.
