This standard specifies the technical requirements that wireless infrastructure devices must satisfy to connect to a eCuras network. Only those wireless infrastructure devices that meet the requirements specified in this standard or are granted an exception by the InfoSec Team are approved for connectivity to a eCuras network.
Network devices, including, but not limited to, hubs, routers, switches, firewalls, remote access devices, modems, or wireless access points, must be installed, supported, and maintained by an Information Security (Infosec) approved support organization. Lab network devices must comply with the Lab Security Policy.
All employees, contractors, consultants, temporary and other workers at eCuras and its subsidiaries, including all personnel that maintain a wireless infrastructure device on behalf of eCuras, must comply with this standard. This standard applies to wireless devices connected to the network and all wireless infrastructure devices that provide wireless connectivity to the network.
Infosec must approve exceptions to this standard in advance.
4.1 General Requirements
All wireless infrastructure devices that connect to a eCuras network or provide access to eCuras Confidential, eCuras Highly Confidential, or eCuras Restricted information must:
- Use Extensible Authentication Protocol-Fast Authentication via Secure Tunneling (EAP-FAST), Protected Extensible Authentication Protocol (PEAP), or Extensible Authentication Protocol-Translation Layer Security (EAP-TLS) as the authentication protocol.
- Use Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) or Advanced Encryption System (AES) protocols with a minimum key length of 128 bits.
- All Bluetooth devices must use Secure Simple Pairing with encryption enabled.
4.2 Lab and Isolated Wireless Device Requirements
- Lab device Service Set Identifier (SSID) must be different from eCuras production device SSID.
- Broadcast of lab device SSID must be disabled.
4.3 Home Wireless Device Requirements
All home wireless infrastructure devices that provide direct access to a eCuras network, such as those behind Enterprise Teleworker (ECT) or hardware VPN, must adhere to the following:
- Enable WiFi Protected Access Pre-shared Key (WPA-PSK), EAP-FAST, PEAP, or EAP-TLS
- When enabling WPA-PSK, configure a complex shared secret key (at least 20 characters) on the wireless client and the wireless access point
- Disable broadcast of SSID
- Change the default SSID name
- Change the default login and password
