Instructions for the information security change tool

 

The change request tool is intended to serve as the primary tool for processing normal change requests related to an information security connection.

 

Specify the order delivery time, according to which the request is fulfilled. The requests are fulfilled according to the selected delivery time. “Next business day” means that the request is fulfilled by 4:00 pm on the next business day. “Timed” means that the change can be made at a desired point in time, however no sooner than after at least two weekdays. “Express” means that the request is fulfilled within two hours of being submitted. “8h (24/7)” means that the request is fulfilled within eight hours from being submitted. * marked fields are mandatory fields

 

Figure: Specifying the delivery time

 

The requester’s details are specified in the ‘Name’, ‘Email’ and ‘Phone’ fileds, and they are received automatically from the user details. These details can be changed, if information on the change is to be delivered to another person than the requester.

 

Figure: Specifying the requester’s details

 

The connection to which the change is to be made is specified in the ‘Connection’ menu. The service to which the change is to be made is selected in the ‘Target of the change’ menu. The ‘Target of the change’ menu shows only the services specified for the information security connection in question.  All change targets of the connection are not shown with all delivery methods, e.g. a LAN-TO-LAN VPN order is not available as an express order. There are separate instructions for the change targets. In the ‘Change type’ menu it is specified whether the request relates to an addition, change or deletion. The firewall rules can be seen if ‘Rule base’ is selected.

 

Figure: Specifying the connection, the target of the change, and the change type

 

In the ‘Change details’ field, the change requested is specified. The obligatory information required in order for the request to be fulfilled is requested in the ‘Change details’ field. The obligatory information on the target of the change is pre-filled in the ‘Change details’ field. Filling in this information ensures that the request can be fulfilled. If information is missing from the ‘Change details’ field, our specialist has to take actions to look for it. If the order is defective, we cannot guarantee that the delivery takes place within the estimated delivery time.

 

Figure: Specifying the change

 

After the change has been specified, it is possible to add changes to the request by clicking "Add change". The request can be submitted by clicking “Send request”. Under “Add”, select “Save request” or “Cancel request”. Under “Add”, it is also possible to cancel a request that has already been sent, if the processing of the request has not yet been started by selecting “Return request”.  Attachments can be added to the request by clicking “Add attachments”.

 

 

Figure: Adding changes, sending the request, adding attachments, and specifying other functions

 

When the request has been fulfilled, the user specified in the request receives an acknowledgement to this end by email. Telia can return the request if more information is required and Telia has been unable to reach the requester by phone. A notification is also sent to the requester’s email on a returned request.

 

Different change targets can be found in the table, and if you select a target, you can see a more detailed general description of the service, the issues to be specified and the order instructions.

1 Firewall rule change

 

Firewall rules filter traffic between two data communications networks, for example the company’s LAN or subscriber line and the Internet, as specified in the firewall rules.

With firewall rule changes, you can request new rules, changes to the existing rules and their deletion.

 

1.1 Rule request

 

In the following, you will find a picture of a firewall rule base and descriptions of the settings to be ordered by a firewall rule request.

 

Figure: Firewall rule.

 

Specifying the rule number (No.)

The rule number specifies the point in the rule base where the rule is read. The firewall checks the rule base against the connection details in sequential order and stops when it finds a match. For this reason, the rule numbers are important.

 

Specifying the rule name

Give a name to the rule. The name will remain unchanged in the rule base. The name can include up to 30 characters.

 

Specifying the source

Specify the source address or addresses used. The source address can be an individual IP address, an IP network address, an object group including several IP addresses, IP networks or groups, and users or user groups or devices or device groups obtained from a user directory.

 

Specifying the destination

Specify the destination address to be used. It can be an individual IP address, an IP network address, machine, machine group or an object group including several IP addresses, networks, machine, machine group or groups.

 

Specifying the service

The TCP/UDP port(s), service(s) and group(s) to be used are specified in the service.

 

Specifying the action

The following options are available when the action is specified:  

·       Accept, i.e. accept the traffic.

·       Reject, i.e. reject the traffic. This differs from Drop in that the firewall informs the party attempting to establish a connection about the disconnection.

·       Drop, i.e. drop traffic.

 

Specifying the rule log

Specify whether the rule in question is to be tracked.

 

Specifying the time of validity of the rule (Time)

Specify when the rule is valid. If the time is not specified, the rule is always valid. Here you can specify, for example, that the rule is valid only on weekdays. The available options are:

When the rule is activated or when the rule expires.  E.g. activated 31-1-2015-08:00 and expires 31-12-2015-16:00.

The validity of the rule is restricted to a certain period of time or certain weekdays or certain days of the month. E.g. the rule is valid 08:00-16:00 Monday-Friday.

 

Specifying a comment

The comment is a free text attached to a rule.  

 

Requesting a rule and sending it to implementation

When you have made the specifications, select ‘Send request’ or, to add new changes, select ‘Add change’. When all the necessary specifications have been made, press ‘Send request’, and the request is submitted to Telia for implementation.

2 Object change

 

Objects are used when the rule base of an information security device is specified. The object can be an address, network, user, group, user group, service or service group.

 

With a firewall object change, you can order new objects, changes to existing objects and their deletion.

 

Each new object must be given a name containing up to 50 characters. The name should preferably disclose the type, context and content of the object. In addition, further information on each new object can be provided in the Comment field. The comment can contain up to 80 characters.

 

The objects that can be modified are described below:

 

Host

A host object contains a single IP address. The address (IP address, e.g. 192.168.1.1) or 2001:db8:85a3::8a2e:370:7334 for IPv6.

 

Figure: Host object

 

Network

A network object includes an entire network with masks. Address (IP address, e.g. 192.168.1.0 or 2001:db8:85a3::8a2e:370:7334 for IPv6). Mask (network mask, e.g. 255.255.255.0 or 120 for IPv6).

 

Figure: Network object

 

IP Range

An IP range object includes a range of IP addresses, e.g.192.168.1.1 – 192.168.1.10 or 2001:db8:85a3::8a2e:370:7334 – 2001:db8:85a3::8a2e:370:7340 for IPv6.

Figure: IP range object

 

Service

A service object includes the protocol and the port. Protocol, e.g.TCP/IP, UDP, http. Port, e.g. tcp888.

 

Figure: Service object

 

Object and service group

An object and service group includes a number of other objects. Thus, an object group may contain hosts, networks, IP ranges and object groups. An object group can only include objects of the same IP version.

E.g. a group including IP addresses, Intra_verkot, includes the objects yritys_10.10.10.10 and yritys_10.10.20.0m0.

 

Figure: Group object

 

A service group can include services and service groups.  E.g. A group including service groups, Intra_Palvelimen_portit, includes the ports tcp 400–402 and tcp 8001.

 

Figure: Service group object

3 Network address translation (NAT)

 

NAT (network address translation) rules specify which addresses or services are to be translated into which addresses or services. The rules are similar to those used in a standard rule base to specify the traffic to be allowed or blocked.

 

The original source and destination address and service must be specified. If the traffic meets these criteria, the changes specified in the following fields will be carried out, i.e. it determines whether the used source or destination address or service is translated or not.

 

A NAT request can be used to order new network address translations, changes to them or their deletion.

 

3.1 Network address translation rule request

 

In the following, you will find a picture of a NAT rule and descriptions of the settings ordered with a NAT request.

 

Figure: NAT rule

 

Specifying the rule number (No.)

4 LAN-to-LAN VPN

 

The VPN functionality allows strongly encrypted IPSec VPN connections to be set up between the customer’s offices or the customer’s partners.

 

With a VPN change request, you can order new VPN connections or changes to existing VPN connections or their removal.  If the firewall supports IPv6 addresses, you can also specify a new IPv6 VPN. Different IP versions cannot be mixed in a VPN, but all addresses and objects must be of the same IP version. To allow the VPN connection to be implemented, a VPN change request must include the following information:

·       General VPN details, such as the requested delivery time and the details of the other party. LAN-to-LAN change request information will be send to other party technical contact person by email

·       VPN parameters

·       Internal and external IP addresses, i.e. the networks that operate on the VPN connection and the traffic of which is encrypted

·       Further details concerning the order, such as the services/ports to be activated for the connection.

 

4.1 LAN-to-LAN VPN connection request

 

Specifying the general details

Specify the details of the other party of the VPN connection in the general details. This information is needed when the VPN connection is specified. The necessary details include the following:

 

·      Company name (if external company)

·      Technical contact person who makes the configuration at the other end

·      E-mail address of the technical contact person

·      Mobile phone number of the technical contact person (a pre-shared secret password is sent to this number).

 

Specifying the VPN parameters

·       Name of the VPN connection:

·       STARTING POINT OF VPN CONNECTION (enter the default interface here):

·       END POINT OF VPN CONNECTION:

·       Mode. The options are Main and Aggressive. ‘Main’ refers to normal negotiation complying with the IPSEC standard in the setting up of the connection, while ‘Aggressive’ overrides certain phases to speed up the negotiation.

·       Phase1 Diffie-Hellman group. This protocol protects the PKI key exchange.

·       Phase1 Encryption Algorithm. Phase 1 encryption algorithm for encrypting a phase 2 negotiation.

·       Phase1 Hash Algorithm. Phase 1 Hash Algorithm (uses a secure hash) secures phase 2 negotiation integrity.

·       Phase1 Lifetime seconds. The duration of phase 1 in seconds. Phase 1 is renegotiated (automatically) after the time is up.

·       Phase2 Perfect Forward Secrecy. Improves data security in case someone finds out the PKI key of the VPN connection by means of wiretapping.

·       Phase2 Lifetime seconds. The duration of phase 2 in seconds. Phase 2 is renegotiated (automatically) after the time is up.

·       Phase2 ESP/AH. ESP (Encapsulated Security Payload) encrypts the package. AH (Authentication Header) only checks the integrity of the package.

·       Phase2 Encryption Algorithm. Phase 2 encryption algorithm for traffic encryption.

·       Phase2 Authentication Algorithm. Phase 2 Hash Algorithm (uses a secure hash) secures phase 2 traffic integrity.

 

NB: The VPN parameters between the VPN devices must be perfect matches, and all devices do not necessarily support all the options offered by the tool.

 

Specifying internal addresses

Specify those internal IP addresses with their network masks that will operate on the requested VPN connection.

The internal addresses specify which networks participate in the VPN connection. You can specify several networks. Firewall rules can be used for specifying in more detail the IP addresses that are allowed to operate within the VPN connection, and thus host definitions are not recommended.

 

Specifying external addresses

Specify those IP addresses with their network masks that will operate on the requested VPN connection from the other party’s VPN device.

 

Specifying further information

Specify further information related to the request. It is recommended to also enter the VPN-connection-related openings, i.e. the protocols allowed for the connection. If necessary, the rules can also be ordered separately with a firewall change request.

 

Sending a request for implementation

When you have made the specifications, select ‘Send request’ or, to add new changes, select ‘Add change’. When all the necessary specifications have been made, press ‘Send request’, and the request is submitted to Telia for implementation.

5 Routing/Antispoofing change

 

Dynamic routing (BGP) is used for the security device routing at the network interfaces of the internal network. The routing information is thus received at the security device, but a so-called antispoofing feature is activated on the device to check that there are only known networks at the network interfaces of the security device. For this reason, the networks advertised at the network interfaces of the internal network must always be added to the configuration of the security device.

With a routing/antispoofing change request, you can order new internal networks to be added to the security device, changes to the existing ones or their deletion.

 

5.1 Routing request

 

Specifying the IP version

Specify the used IP version.

 

Specifying the IP address and mask

Specify the IP network address and mask of the internal network.

 

Specifying the network interface to be routed

6 Web filtering

 

With a web filtering request, you can order new rules and user messages to the web content filtering service, changes to them and their deletion.

 

In web content filtering, the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) of a downloaded Internet page is compared with a database where web pages are pre-categorized into certain page categories. This functionality allows users to be informed in real time of web traffic restrictions, the risks of the Internet, and the information security policy of the organization.

 

Changes can be made to the scanned networks or users, destination addresses, category, functionality, user message, tracking, validity of the rule, and frequency band restriction.

 

6.1 Web filtering rule request

8 Antivirus service

 

The antivirus service scans the files downloaded through the firewall and prevents any malware from entering the customer network according to the company’s scanning policy. The antivirus service supports the most common web browsing, data transmission and email protocols. The user is notified of any viruses detected. The firewall updates the virus database automatically from the manufacturer’s update servers. Typically there is no need to make any changes to the rule base and the profile, but the protection is sufficient if the default values are used.

 

With an antivirus request, you can order new rules, profiles and user messages for the anti-virus service and changes to them or their deletion.

 

Changes can be made to the networks scanned, to the scan profile in order to prevent, detect, enquire or deactivate scanning, or to the message shown to the user.

 

Profile scanning is based on the confidence level and performance settings that are specified by the manufacturer and that can be changed.

 

The protection settings are specified by the manufacture.

13 Access right request

 

With an access right request, you can order SurfManager users access to the security device tools, which makes possible to check rules and log information.  

 

The information required includes the username, the public IP address from which the connections are set up.  Password and mobile number for SMS authentication are same as SurfManager user ID.

 

You should see to it that the firewall openings in your own firewall are in order and submit a separate change request on any firewall openings (firewall rule change).

 

We recommend that the same NAT address is always used for all client users. NB: If the NAT address is changed, you should submit an access right change request and disclose the new NAT address in it.

 

When you have received the access rights, you can download the client from Partnergate’s website, where you can also find instructions on how to use the client. You can check client software version from SurfManager connection view “Access rights”(Version).

 

Example of an access right change:

 

A user ID for the client is created for the user abc12345. The user’s IP address is 1.1.1.1.
