hp OpenView operations
HP OpenView Operations provides you with a business-driven approach to achieving rapid control of your e-services. It is an enterprise-class management solution that monitors, controls and reports on the health of the enterprise across boundaries, thereby improving uptime off all layers that compose the electronic enterprise environment of today: the network, systems, databases, applications, services and the Internet. • between management servers and the connected operator consoles (Java™ UI) Protection is ensured for sensitive information contained in HP OpenView Operations messages, action requests, action responses and configuration data. For example, with an Internet banking application the proxy and name servers supporting the application need to reside outside the firewall. Because of potential security issues, these servers need to be managed securely. The communication between the agents and the management server therefore needs to be as secure as possible. This is achieved with HP OpenView Advanced Security.

the OpenView advanced security concept
The HP OpenView Operations core product comes with standard protection against passive attacks (eavesdropping) by securing network traffic. With Advanced Security, an addon product, the HP OpenView Operations’ communication infrastructure is extended to support the authentication, encryption and integrity of management data: • between the central management servers • between management servers and distributed intelligent agents

privacy, authentication and data integrity
HP OpenView Advanced Security together with a PKI solution guarantee data privacy for the communication channel between the HP OpenView Operations central management server and

the distributed intelligent agents, as well as between different management servers. It ensures that the communication is authenticated and checked for data integrity.

Administrators are able to individually select the managed nodes and the operator accounts for which the secure communication is enabled.

the open security model
HP OpenView Advanced Security allows a seamless integration with an existing security solution: • It supports the Generic Security Service (GSS) standard version 2 (RFC 2078) with an API. • It is independent from any encryption technology. Even homegrown encryption solutions can plug in, if they are GSS compliant. • It provides an open interface to plug in a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) solution based on GSS.

secure Java user interface
Having a secured link between the Java UI client and the HP OpenView Operations management server is essential to prevent spoofing. In the case of working from remote, when the operator does not know how the service provider routes data transferred across the network, a secured link is a primary concern to prevent eavesdropping or even worse attacks. The HP OpenView Advanced Security add-on guarantees secrecy, data integrity and authentication for the communication between the management server and the connected Java UI clients. It comes with an out-of-the-box implementation of the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol, the de facto standard used for the Internet.
