Security vs. Plug-and-Play for Operation and Maintenance

Abstract [en]

When Ericsson starts to use IP in their networks it has to be secure. A network is not secure until all threats are eliminated. For this reason, some threats and methods to avoid these threats are discussed in this thesis. The main goal was to figure out how to install a base station as secure as possible using “plug-and-play”. The security mechanisms treated here are IPSec, SSL, Firewalls and Kerberos. IPSec is a mechanism that protects the packets that pass through the network. SSL protects an application. Firewalls are used to determine which packets it can let into and out of a sub network. Kerberos is used to give authorization of service requests. The plug-and-play mechanism used is DHCP. DHCP gives the base station IP addresses and other necessary network parameters. The focus on this thesis has been on the theoretical part, but a test was made to check the performance of the security and plug-and-play protocols. Finally there is an example of how the installation of a base station could be done seen from a security perspective.
