Abstract : Secure Solutions, Inc. was tasked by the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) to perform a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II network security effort to develop NetWare 4 security guidance for environments where Sensitive Unclassified information is processed. Approximately 60 percent of the network operating systems in operation today are Novell NetWare. Version 3, the most widely installed version, is server-centric, each server needing individual management. With NetWare 4, the most current version, administrators view the network as a single entity - an Enterprise Network. Government and commercial organizations face a common problem of having trained personnel rotate on to new assignments, leaving inadequately trained replacements to administer the networks. In addition, many organizations that have NetWare 3 installed are in the process of, or are contemplating, migration to NetWare 4, but their administrators have not been trained in that architecture. This handbook provides security guidance on the implementation of NetWare 4 security features and additional third-party security products. The handbook describes basic firewall architectures and discusses issues concerning external interfaces. It also surfaces security concerns that remain in spite of the installation of - NetWare features and third-party products so that the security administrator is aware of the concerns.
