Web Application Security Architecture Considerations

Posted in Application (380),Compliances (1300),Security (1500),Web Services (250) by Guest on the September 23rd, 2012

Web Application Security Architecture Standard

Corporate’s business functions rely upon the integrity, confidentiality, and availability of its computer systems and the information assets stored within them.   Responsibilities and procedures for the management, operation and security of all information processing facilities must be established.  This standard supports the stated objectives. 

Roles & Responsibilities

The Development Security Lead is a member of the development team that will be the main point of contact within the development team for security related questions throughout the software development lifecycle. 

The Security Advisor is not a member of the development team and guides the team in following the secure coding practice.  The Security Advisor will perform the final security review approval. 

The Project Manager communicates security information to all teams and ensures security pushes are scheduled and performed.  They keep QA and development of changes in security practice. 

Quality Assurance tracks software defects and security vulnerabilities separately and communicates them to development. 

The Information Security Department will assist End Users and IT Custodians in assessing, defining, implementing, managing and monitoring appropriate controls and security measures. 

The Information Security Department will audit and review the adequacy of controls and security measures in place to measure and enforce conformance to this standard. 

Web Application Security Principles

The following software security architecture principles should be considered when designing applications at Corporate. 

  1. Fail Safe – Your application must always fail safe. That is to say if it encounters a situation and it can no longer proceed, it must deny access to the resource. For example, if a firewall cannot validate the action that is being requested by the requester, it should reject the operation; this is known as fail close or fail safe. 
  2. Security through Obscurity does not Work – Obscurity should not be used as the only or primary security mechanism. 
  3. Simplicity – Complexity increases the potential risk of problems. Application architecture and implementations should be as simple as is practical. This also makes it easy to do the right thing. 
  4. End to end security – Where data requires protection during transportation, it should be enforced from the sender to the recipient (end to end). 
  5. Compartmentalize – Applications should compartmentalize user access. Compartmentalization provides user access to data and functions that they require and restricts them from accessing data or functions they do not need. 
  6. Defense in Depth – Applications should use multiple layers of security. This ensures that if one security mechanism is vulnerable to an attack, an additional layer will still enforce an adequate security policy. Password files for example, should be restricted by access control lists and encryption. Similarly even if data is validated, the use of stored procedures or prepared SQL statements is strongly recommended since it adds an additional layer of defense. 
  7. Least Privilege – Applications should run with the minimum amount of system privileges that they need to function. Where elevated privileges are required they should be granted for the minimum period of time they are required. A similar principle is the “need to know” principle. Ensure that only the minimum number of people have administrative level access to production web, database and application servers. 
  8. Trust but Verify – Applications need to trust other applications or objects on the same host or on the network, however, they must always verify the source they are trusting. The same also applies to users and their actions. For instance, before performing any administrative action, it is important to check that the requesting user is indeed an administrator authorized to request such an action. 
  9. Think Strategically – There are no security silver bullets. Security requires constant monitoring and improvement and is not somebody else’s responsibility. Pay special attention to architecting the right solution so that it maybe reused frequently. The use of software design patterns and frameworks like JAVA Struts are therefore strongly encouraged.

Sample – Project Transition Program Overview

Posted in Business (600),Compliances (1300),Projects (400) by Guest on the September 20th, 2012

The service transition work-streams should focus on transferring the knowledge and services from the incumbent teams, while the other work-streams will provide the necessary existing support in different IT Domain areas. The transition team structure should closely mirror the existing Client’ support team structure, so that the PMO and existing teams can be associated on a one-on-one basis for efficient transitions. 

A good transition program will ensure that best practice project processes are put in place across the transition program and that these are coordinated from a central point; to this end, the transition management office shall act as this central point for all, of the program activities and processes and it will act as the driving force of the transition. Some of these activities are:

1) Quality Management of key deliverables 

2) Accommodation and IT 

3) Planning, tracking and reporting 

4) Financial controls 

5) Risk and issue management 

6) Document and information management 

7) Manage and control transition specification request process 

8) Manage and control transition change request process

Web Server – User Interface Layer

Posted in Application (380),Business (600),Compliances (1300),Security (1500) by Guest on the September 17th, 2012

This layer comprises of the components residing in the interface from which the user will access the application. In this layer, indicate if there is a client and/or an externally hosted application / web services. 

Web Server Layer

In this layer, include the BIG IP Global Traffic Manager (GTM) that routes requests to the two Local Traffic Managers (LTMs).

  1. GTM must even if the application is not load-balanced.
  2. If the application is load-balanced across facilities, include both the LTM and associated boxes.
  3. If the application is load-balanced within a facility, remove the LTMs and associated boxes that apply to the other facility.
  4. Under each LTM,
  • Indicate if that facility resources are used in an ACTIVE configuration or a PASSIVE configuration
  • Indicate the number of Web Server instances associated with the application. The minimum number is 1. 

DMZ – Application Server Layer

In this layer, indicate the number of JVMs or the number of cluster nodes applicable for the application.

  1. If all your JVMs or cluster nodes are in one facility only, remove the boxes that refer to the other facility.
  2. If the application is a standalone JVM, indicate the number of JVMs at each facility. The minimum number is 1. In this case remove the box that represents cluster.
  3. If the application is part of a cluster, indicate the number of cluster nodes at each facility. The minimum number is 1. In this case, remove the box that represents JVMs. 

Data Layer

  1. If the application uses data replication across facilities, include the appropriate box in the diagram, depending on the database that is replicated (Oracle, DB2, SQL Server, File).
  2. If the application uses file replication across facilities, include that box in the diagram. 

Application Dependency Diagram

In this diagram, the various application dependencies should be depicted. Also, for each dependency, indicate the connection type as follows:

  1. SD – Synchronous – fully down, if link is broken
  2. SP – Synchronous – partially down, if link is broken
  3. AD – Asynchronous – fully down, if link is broken
  4. AP – Asynchronous – partially down, if link is broken 

When you start listing the items, they may exceed the box size – increase the box size so that items show up within the box. 

In this diagram, it should be required to list all the entities that the application is dependent upon. From a completeness perspective, you may want to list the other entities that are dependent on this application (however, this depiction is optional). 

Data Sources

In this box, you should list the database name, DB2 sub-system name, application system names, etc., as appropriate, on which the application is dependent upon for data. 

Middleware Components

In this box, you should list the middleware components (SAP CRM, ERP, etc.) on which the application is dependent upon for interactions with other systems. 

External Systems

In this box, you should list the external systems on which the application is dependent upon. For each dependency, list the vendor name and the application / web service name. 

Components

In this box, you should list the Enterprise components on which the application is dependent upon for information.

Sample Design – Web Application Architecture Considerations

Posted in Application (380),Business (600),Compliances (1300),Security (1500) by Guest on the September 16th, 2012

User Interface Layer

This layer comprises of the components residing in the interface from which the user will access the application. Normally this will be a web browser running on the user’s machine. Sometimes, this will be the Web Services client that calls a Web Service on the backend.  The layer also includes any external application / services that will be called from an application within corporate. Logically, this layer exists outside of the external firewall (on the internet), however physically the layer could be anywhere with access to the corporate network.

If the application is accessed through a web browser, include the Web Browser box. 

1) If the application is a web service that provides service to client, include the Web Service Client box. 

2) If the application interacts with an externally hosted application, include the External Web Application box. 

3) If the application interacts with an externally hosted web service, include the External Web Service box. 

4) If the application does not have a user interface, do not show any box in this layer.

 

Web Server Layer Considerations

This is made up of the components residing on the Web Server which are used for server-side web server processing. Normally this will be a web server such as Apache or whichever web server is currently supported by Internal Data Networks. This layer also includes the Proxy Server that applications within corporate go through to call external application / web service. Logically and physically, this layer exists in the corporate Protected Networks between the corporate firewalls.

The Load Balancer and the HTTP Web Server boxes are a must for all application.

If the application interacts with an external application and/or web service, include the Proxy Server box. 

Application Server Layer

The components residing on the Application Server which are used for server-side application processing constitute Application Server Layer. In the shared environment this will be an instance of WebSphere Application Server (WAS). This layer also includes the other systems that the application connects to or dependent on. This layer exists on Corporate-Network, inside of the internal firewall.

1) In the Application Server box, indicate if the application is one of the following:

  • JSP-Servlet
  • Web service – SOAP
  • Web service – REST 

2) If the application interacts with other systems (Business Objects, Mail Server, Content Management System, etc), include those boxes in the diagram; otherwise remove those boxes. 

3) Remove the boxes (JDBC, etc.) that are not appropriate for the application when connecting to the backend database / system. 

Access Gateways Layer

This layer includes the distributed application components such as the DB2 Gateways, the Message Broker Interface and Middleware components such as DB2 Information Integrator, SAP PI, IBM Message Broker (MB) and the CICS DPL Bridge for connectivity to the backend database management systems.

1) If the application uses SAP PI middleware, include that box and include the appropriate Input and Output adapters that are used.

2) If the application uses Message Broker middleware, include that box and include the appropriate Input and Output adapters that are used.

3) Include the appropriate gateways the application uses to connect to the backend databases. 

Data Layer

These are the backend data stores of relational and non-relational data such as DB2, Oracle, SQL Server, etc.. This also includes SAP, CRM and ERP platforms.

1) Include the appropriate backend databases, systems that the application connects to. 

Special Note for DB2 Applications

1) There are two boxes – one representing use of DB2 on the mainframe (DB2 for z/OS) and the other representing DB2 in the distributed environment (Midrange / Open Systems ). In most cases an application will only utilize one of these databases.  Retain the appropriate DB2 box depending on your application’s use. 

When using the IBM Universal Driver for DB2

1) Direct access to DB2 is now allowed when using the IBM Universal Driver for DB2 (now the default on shared systems). You no longer use the Java or DB2Connect Gateways. There is no longer a need to represent these components on your architecture diagram. Additionally, the database driver itself need not be explicitly depicted on your diagram. When using the Universal Driver, the connection line between JDBC and DB2 is all that is required. 

2) Applications using the deprecated app or net drivers are still required to access DB2 through a Gateway. Special permission is required to deploy a new application with either of these drivers. In these cases, the gateway component needs to be added to the diagram between JDBC and DB2.

Backup, Failover and Redundancy Considerations

Posted in Compliances (1300),Information Rights Management (100),Security (1500) by Guest on the September 15th, 2012

Sample considerations 

Backup, failover and redundancy services are usually designed to offer cost effective solutions to help increase data availability and protect information from accidental loss or destruction.

  • Backup encryption – all data is stored on disk using AES-256 encryption. 
  • Backup – Full and incremental data backups, weekly and full archive logs backups daily. 

Disk backup and replication – Stores backup data on disk. This data service is typically available for rapid re-implementation and high speed restores if the original data becomes compromised. 

Geographic failover

Complete redundancy, processes for flow and storage

FTP with PGP encryption – Data files can be transmitted by secure FTP or Secure PGP encrypted files.

Secure messaging (pgp – tls) 

Decru Datafort Encryption – SAN storage provides a reliable safe, secure data storage environment. Uses AES 256 bit encryption to secure data at the block level of storage systems. Uses key management based on FIPs 140-2 level 3 certification testing.

BlackBerry Basic Architecture

Posted in eMail (66) by Guest on the September 14th, 2012

The purpose of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server is to centralize management and control of the BlackBerry solution within an organization. The BlackBerry Enterprise Server performs the following functions for each user: 

  1. Monitors the user’s mailbox for new email.
  2. Applies user-definable filters to new messages to determine if and how the message will be relayed to the user’s BlackBerry Wireless Handheld.
  3. Compresses and encrypts new messages and pushes them to the BlackBerry Wireless Handheld via the Internet and wireless network.
  4. Receives, via the Internet, messages composed on the BlackBerry Wireless Handheld, then decrypts and decompresses the messages and places them in the user’s Outbox for the corporate 

Microsoft® Exchange Server to deliver

The BlackBerry Enterprise Server provides a secure, two-way link between the user’s Microsoft Exchange account and the user’s BlackBerry Wireless Handheld. Consider the BlackBerry Enterprise Server as a conduit rather than a mail server or message repository – all message storage is still left to the Microsoft Exchange Server. By maintaining a link to the messages in the user’s Microsoft Exchange mailbox, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server provides several advanced features: 

  1. When forwarding a message from the handheld, the BlackBerry software forwards the complete original message from the user’s Microsoft Exchange account, including all attachments that are appended to the message. Although attachments cannot be viewed on the handheld, they can still be forwarded to other email addresses.
  2. When receiving a message from the handheld, the first 2K of a message are pushed to the handheld. The user is able to request more of the message to be delivered in 2K blocks up to a maximum of 32K. 

When “replying with text” from the handheld, the BlackBerry software will append the entire original message to the reply, not just the 2K that was sent to the handheld. 

The BlackBerry Enterprise Server is a Windows® NT service that can monitor many users at once over a single administrative connection to the Microsoft Exchange Server. The BlackBerry Enterprise Server uses a direct TCP/IP connection to the wireless network. Achieving this direct connection requires a one-time configuration of the company firewall and results in a considerable speed advantage. Figure 1 provides an overview of the system architecture. At the heart of this wireless email solution is the BlackBerry Enterprise Server:

  1. The BlackBerry Enterprise Server is administered through extensions to the standard Microsoft Exchange Administrator
  2. The configuration information is placed in the data store of an Administration account
  3. That must be set up for the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. This account must have privileges to read and write to the message stores of the users it serves.

BlackBerry Enterprise Server Components

Posted in eMail (66) by Guest on the September 13th, 2012

BlackBerry Dispatcher

The BlackBerry Dispatcher handles traffic to the BlackBerry Infrastructure. It compresses/decompresses and encrypts/decrypts wireless data. The BlackBerry Dispatcher handles all internal Service Routing Protocol (SRP) connections from the BlackBerry Messaging Agent and also manages communication from the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service, the BlackBerry Synchronization Service, the BlackBerry Policy Service, and the BlackBerry Collaboration Service to the BlackBerry Infrastructure. These components connect to the BlackBerry Dispatcher through specific ports and communicate with the BlackBerry Infrastructure through the BlackBerry Router using a unique SRP identifier that the BlackBerry Dispatcher establishes. 

BlackBerry Messaging Agent

The BlackBerry Messaging Agent handles BlackBerry Synchronization Service traffic, including contacts, tasks, memos, message settings, and message filters. The BlackBerry Messaging Agent also has a mechanism for wireless calendar initialization before wireless calendar synchronization is enabled. This mechanism is used to initially synchronize the BlackBerry device and the Microsoft Exchange message store, enabling wireless synchronization to occur. Each BlackBerry Messaging Agent owns a unique internal SRP identifier that connects to the BlackBerry Dispatcher. 

The BlackBerry Messaging Agent also handles all Microsoft Exchange-related traffic using Messaging Application Programming Interface (MAPI) and Collaboration Data Objects (CDO).  

MAPI

The BlackBerry Messaging Agent uses thread pools that have a MAPI session to the Microsoft Exchange Server. New thread pools are created when an existing thread pool exceeds the 50-mailbox maximum or the BlackBerry Enterprise Server connects to another Microsoft Exchange Server. This thread pool system minimizes the number of MAPI sessions to the Microsoft Exchange Server, which provides added product stability. 

CDO

The BlackBerry Messaging Agent uses CDO sessions for wireless calendar activity. A CDO session is established for a user when a calendar-related request is made. If no activity occurs within five minutes, the session ends. 

BlackBerry Router

The BlackBerry Router acts as a gateway to the BlackBerry Infrastructure and user computers. It determines whether data should be transmitted wirelessly or routed through a network connection. When a BlackBerry device is connected to a computer, the BlackBerry Router routes data to the BlackBerry device and bypasses the wireless network. 

BlackBerry Controller

The BlackBerry Controller starts the BlackBerry Messaging Agents and monitors their health. If the BlackBerry Controller detects nonresponsive threads or if a BlackBerry Messaging Agent stops responding, the BlackBerry Controller restarts the BlackBerry Messaging Agent. 

The BlackBerry Controller assigns BlackBerry user accounts to BlackBerry Messaging Agents based on the following criteria:

  • Microsoft Exchange Server on which the user accounts reside (groups user accounts together or, if most user accounts reside on the same Microsoft Exchange Server, distributes the user accounts evenly)
  • Amount of user accounts that currently reside on each BlackBerry Messaging Agent (up to 500 users) 

The BlackBerry Controller also monitors all BlackBerry processes and restarts them if they are not in a running state. 

BlackBerry MDS Services

In BlackBerry Enterprise Server Version 4.x, RIM introduced a new component called the BlackBerry MDS Services. The BlackBerry MDS Services also require the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service to send data to BlackBerry devices. 

The BlackBerry MDS Services are responsible for managing interactions and requests between BlackBerry devices and enterprise applications. The BlackBerry MDS Services include the following services:

  • BlackBerry MDS Management Service: deals with policies, such as those that specify which applications users can download, the services available to applications, and so on
  • BlackBerry MDS Provisioning Service: controls and manages which applications users can download to BlackBerry devices
  • BlackBerry MDS Data Optimization Service: transforms data for efficient wireless transmission and use on BlackBerry devices
  • BlackBerry MDS Connection Service: provides TCP/IP and HTTP-based connectivity between BlackBerry MDS Studio Java™ Applications and enterprise applications and between BlackBerry MDS Browser Applications and enterprise applications
  • BlackBerry MDS Application Integration Service: supports the integration and transmission of data between BlackBerry MDS Studio on the BlackBerry device and web services applications
  • BlackBerry MDS Studio Application Repository: manages published BlackBerry MDS Studio Applications centrally 

The current version of this document includes benchmarking information for the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service. The document does not include benchmarking information for the BlackBerry MDS Services. 

BlackBerry MDS Connection Service

The BlackBerry MDS Connection Service enables push-based access to enterprise data and applications. Capitalizing on the BlackBerry Enterprise Server architecture, the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service provides a safe connection between the BlackBerry device and corporate application servers. Through this connection, users can access corporate data from enterprise applications. The data travels between the BlackBerry device and the BlackBerry Enterprise Server using the same path as the BlackBerry Collaboration Service, so no extra connections or firewall openings are required. 

The BlackBerry MDS Connection Service also communicates with the BlackBerry Dispatcher. It permits persistent socket connections from the BlackBerry device to the corporate application server.

You can configure the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service to run on a computer that is remote from the BlackBerry Enterprise Server computer.  

BlackBerry Attachment Service

The BlackBerry Attachment Service enables users to open and view message attachments on their BlackBerry devices. Attachment content is formatted and delivered to the BlackBerry device using the Universal Content Stream (UCS) format. When a user requests to view an attachment on the BlackBerry device, the BlackBerry Messaging Agent sends the request information to the BlackBerry Attachment Service, and the BlackBerry Attachment Service performs the conversion of the attachment content to UCS format. The BlackBerry Enterprise Server compresses and encrypts the attachment data and then sends the formatted attachment to the BlackBerry device. 

The BlackBerry Attachment Service also enables users to view Microsoft PowerPoint® presentations in a slide format. 

BlackBerry Synchronization Service

The BlackBerry Synchronization Service synchronizes contacts, tasks, and memos between the email application on a user’s computer and the user’s BlackBerry device using Microsoft Exchange through the BlackBerry Messaging Agent. The BlackBerry Synchronization Service also synchronizes message settings and message filters. The wireless protocol also synchronizes a variety of database configurations, backs up databases on the BlackBerry device, and synchronizes items when necessary.

Initialization of the BlackBerry Synchronization Service is triggered when items on the BlackBerry device and the BlackBerry Configuration Database are not synchronized. This initialization can be triggered by activating a BlackBerry device wirelessly or moving user accounts. The initialization mechanism is also used to initially synchronize the BlackBerry device and message store, enabling wireless synchronization to occur.

Because the initialization feature is not considered to maintain a steady state load on the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, its impact on the BlackBerry Enterprise Server performance is not included in this document. There are load conditions that the initialization places on the system that you should consider when initialization occurs. 

BlackBerry Policy Service

The BlackBerry Policy Service pushes IT policies and IT administrative commands to BlackBerry devices wirelessly. It is also responsible for creating and pushing service books to BlackBerry devices that are being activated wirelessly and for sending third-party applications to BlackBerry devices wirelessly.

Because the BlackBerry Policy Service is not considered to maintain a steady state load on the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, its impact on the BlackBerry Enterprise Server performance is not included in this document.
