Improving Account and Authority Management

Improving Account and Authority Management

In scenarios with low security requirements, ME devices store passwords and keys in plaintext mode, which facilitates viewing of configurations during ME device maintenance and usage. However, it is strongly recommended that the following requirements be met when accounts, passwords, and keys are configured and used:

  • Preferentially use the Irreversible-cipher mode, then the Cipher mode.
  • Same accounts and passwords must not be configured for ME devices on all telecommunication networks.
  • The same account and password must not be shared by many people.
  • Passwords must be updated periodically.
  • The password strength must meet security requirements.
  • A unified authentication, authorization and accounting (AAA) system must be configured on the entire network to authenticate login accounts. Accounts must not be authenticated on ME devices locally.
  • Authorities must be allocated to accounts based on the minimum authorization principle. Allocation of authorities beyond the responsibility range is not allowed.
  • The non-authentication access mode must not be configured. Channels that request access to ME devices must pass the authentication, authorization, and accounting.
  • All activity logs of accounts must be recorded for subsequent analysis.
