Security Functions

Security Functions
The bizhub PRO C6501 device has two security modes.
Normal mode
Use this mode if the machine is used by a single person and there is a low
possibility of illicit access and operations. This is the default mode when
shipped from the factory.
To use regular mode, please see the users guide for each individual
machine.
Security Strengthen mode
Use this mode if the machine is connected to a local area network, or to
external networks through a telephone line or other means. A machine
administrator manages the device according to this users guide, so that
users can have a safe operating environment.
Your machine administrator is the only one who can turn the Security
Strengthen mode ON and OFF, and make other changes, and your service
representative will designate an machine administrator.
To turn the Security Strengthen mode ON, the service representative should
set a CE authentication password and machine administrator password for
the device.
Please contact your service representative when using the Security
Strengthen mode.
Please be sure to use the Security Strengthen mode to prevent data from
being accessed or tampered with.
The Security icon
is displayed on the touch panel if the Security
Strengthen mode is activated.
Environments in which Security Strengthen mode is recommended
- The machine is monitored by a telephone line or a network.

Creating a secure environment

For security, we recommend that supervisors and a machine administrator


use Security Strengthen mode and establish an environment as follows.
- Qualifications to be a machine administrator
A supervisor must select a reliable person who has adequate knowledge,
technical ability, and experience as a machine administrator, to whom to
delegate administration of the device.
- Guarantee of service representative (CE)
A supervisor or a machine administrator can use Security Strengthen
mode after confirming that a service contract was signed with the service
representative (CE). Clearly state in the service contract that the service
representative will not engage in any fraudulent actions.
- Secure LAN
Be sure to connect the machine to the LAN protected by firewall in order
to prevent access from an external network.

Analyze audit log


Audit logs need to be analyzed by the Machine Administrator regularly (once
per month) or when unauthorized access and tampering of data saved in the
machine in Security Strengthen mode is noticed.
The machine is supposed to store up 750 logs per month.
If more than 750 logs are assumed to be stored in a month, carry out the
analysis in a shorter period before the unanalyzed logs reach that number.

Machine Administrator Security Functions


Specify unauthorized actions: password authentication
If logs have NG as the result of password authentication (action: 01, 02),
items protected by passwords may have been attacked.
- Failed password authentication (NG) log entries specify who made the
operation, and show if unauthorized actions were made when password
authentication failed.
- Even if password authentication succeeded (OK), it shows whether a
legitimate user created the action. You need to check carefully when
successful authentication occurs after series of failures especially during
times other than normal operating hours.
Specify unauthorized actions: actions other than password
authentication under security
All operation results other than password authentication will be indicated as
successful (OK), so determine if there were any unauthorized actions by ID
and action.
- Check the time, and see if the user who operated the specific subject
made any unauthorized actions.
Actions to take if unauthorized operations are found
If it's found that a password has been leaked after analyzing the audit log,
change the password immediately.
