Re: IPSO/Secure Platform audit

You can lock down all access to the Nokia Appliance to specific source IP addresses (https, SSH). Fpr SSH, you can 
actually specific which interfaces you want the Nokia applicnace to accept connections on. You can further restrict 
access using the Check Point Policy.

In addition to this lock down, you can then create a new administrator ID, removing all other administrator accounts.. 
That way, any adminbistrators who are unable to log on will get a hold of you to find out what may be happening. Any 
other person who has no busienss logging into teh Nokia appliance, and who have no business case for continued access 
wil simply let go!

Hope this helps!

Hi list,

I'm currently reviewing a Check point/Nokia box and a Secure Platform
manager. The settings in Voyager are all good, and likewise the Web
GUI of the SPLAT manager is fine, they're both patched and the policy
is also clean - but I want to ensure the o/s themselves are ok. I've
checked that there aren't any users there shouldn't be in /etc/passwd,
checked there aren't any unknown processes (at least any visible
ones), any unusual open ports or any strange scripts scheduled to run
in crontab. The firewall logs themselves aren't showing anything
unusual.

I am concerned that a previous administrator may have left himself
access by the back-door somehow - but am not in a position to rebuild
them to be sure. What else would you lot check for?

Ta

Dan
