Southern Star – Security Upgrade Research? Southern Star – Encryption PlanDocuments to be submitted:Encryption Project 1Project overviewAfter examining the Southern Star scenario, you will start by identifying what can be done to address the current security weaknesses.You will then be surveying the market for encryption technologies that will help to meet these security needs and finally developing an Encryption Plan for Southern Star.Stage 1: Identifying encryption solutions to the current security issues1.1 After reviewing the scenario, you need to identify improvements that need to be made to meet the enterprise data security needs.? Identify at least four encryption methods/technologies that will directly address the concerns raised by Lee about the Southern Star network.? Put these in a document titled “Southern Star – Security Upgrade Research”.? Use the provided Southern Star Report Template.1.2 Review the range of available whole disk encryption products (at least 5) and rank them against the appropriate requirements identified in section 1.1 above.? Use a table similar to the one below to record and rank these products.? Include these in your Southern Star – Security Upgrade Research document.Vendor Product name and description RankAES Advanced Encryption Standard AES is the algorithm highly efficient in 128bit form also can use 192 and 256 bit encryption.Twofish Twofish, keys used in this algorithm may be up to 256 bits and as a symmetric only need one key. ideal for use in Hardware and software.RSA Security RSA, this is an asymmetric algorithm due to use 2 keys, public and private key. This will make it hard for attackers.Blowfish Blowfish replace DES. This symmetric is 64 bits and encrypts them in individually. used for e-commerce and secure payment s.1.3 Review the range of available SSL certificates (at least 5) from one or several vendors. Investigate their cost, validity period, and bit length options.? Use a table similar to the one below to record and rank these products.? Include these in your Southern Star – Security Upgrade Research document.Vendor & Plan Name Validity Period Bit Length Options Plan Cost RankGeoTrust Expert support one year 256-bit $344DigiCert Wildcoard SSL one year 4096-bit $700Network Solutions Xpress plan one year 256-bit $59.99SSL.com High Assurance two years 2048+ bit $110Sectigo Sectigo SSL DV one year 256-bit $79Stage 2: Developing an Encryption Plan2.1 Create a draft encryption plan to provide appropriate encryption technologies for the organisation.? Create your plan using the headings provided on the next page ??Put these into a document titled “Southern Star – Encryption Plan”.? Use the provided Southern Star Report Template.2.2 Email your draft Encryption Plan to a.neupane@cqu.edu.au for feedback. Use appropriate email netiquette as if you were sending the document to David (General Manager).2.3 Review feedback received, revise as necessary and then submit your Final Encryption Plan in CQU Moodle.Continued on next page …1.0 Background2.0 Purpose and Scope3.0 Policy• Cryptographic control (Overall use of cryptography)• Key management (How encryption keys will be managed across their life cycle)• Network encryption (Protocols used for communications across networks)• Hard disk encryption (Protection against loss/theft of devices such as laptops)4.0 Project team roles and responsibilities (based on scenario staff)• Responsible parties• Ownership• Communication• Policy review and maintenance5.0 Internal Compliance6.0 Applicability to staffEnd of Assessment=========Adapted by permission of the copyright holder © 2020 CAQAEncryption Project 2Project Scenario : Southern StarBusiness this assessment is based on:Documentation reviewed as preparation: Southern Star – Business and Situation Overview.pdfAssessment Submission: Submit all documents in CQU MoodleDocuments to be submitted: See the list below …?

Southern Star end user – Encryption feedback form? Southern Star Helpdesk – Encryption feedback formICTNWK537 Implement secure encryption technologies | Encryption Project 2 | Ver 21.1 | Page 2Encryption Project 2Stage 1: Installing encryption softwareBefore starting this practical Encryption Project, you will need to have Windows Server 2016 and a Windows 10 client installed in virtual machines. You can use a hypervisor product such as Windows Hyper-V or Oracle VirtualBox.You have received approval from David (General Manager) to implement a pilot of the encryption project. You are required to install encryption software and tools in a pilot environment prior to going live. You will be documenting the process to provide documentation for the “Go Live” stage.? Assume yourself as “Lee” (Head of Security) and install, test and use the following encryption software and tools.? You need to install encryption software on the Windows Server and Windows 10 client VMs as indicated.? You will also need to have access to your own personal computer (not in a VM) with Microsoft Outlook installed. ? Document the following 3 tasks in a document titled:“Southern Star – Encryption Implementation Strategy”. Use the provided Southern Star Report Template.1.1 Create and Install a self-signed SSL certificate in IIS on your Windows Server (Note: must include step-by-step instructions and screenshots)1.2 Configure and enable BitLocker on the Windows Server and on the Windows 10 Client. (Note: must include step-by-step instructions and screenshots)1.3 Configure Microsoft Outlook to use secure protocols for accessing your CQU student email account ?????.?????@cqumail.com.(Note: must include step-by-step instructions and screenshots)Stage 2: Analysing the effect of encryption on user roles2.1 As a part of your responsibilities you need to analyse the expected effects/impacts of the encryption you have just implemented on user roles and responsibilities. Do some research and consider the impacts on the following Users/Roles and areas of responsibility: ? End Users – Email, Intranet access, and access to local drives with Bitlocker encryption.? Helpdesk – End user support for Bitlocker and for email.? Administrators – Certificate maintenance, ability to monitor/filter encrypted traffic at the network perimeter.2.2 Document these effects/impacts in a document titled“Southern Star – Encryption Technologies Impact Analysis Report”. Use the provided Southern Star Report Template.Write each of the three sections in language appropriate to the target audience i.e., End Users, Helpdesk & Network Administrators.The table below summarises the minimum list of impacts to be addressed:Encryption Technologies Impact Analysis ReportRole Description/effectEnd Users ? Email? Intranet access? Access to local drives with Bitlocker encryptionHelpdesk ? End user support for Bitlocker? End user support for Email usageAdministrators ? Certificate maintenance? Ability to monitor/filter encrypted traffic at the network perimeterStage 3: Checking functioning and performance of Encryption softwareYou should have now implemented the encryption technologies in the previous stage. Now, you are required to monitor the encryption technologies functioning by performing some network monitoring.3.1 Install an appropriate network monitoring software such as Wireshark on your virtual server to analyse the performance of the encryption technologies.3.2 Use it to confirm that traffic is in fact being encrypted by checking for SSL/TLS traffic and encrypted data exchanges.3.3 Check network performance to determine if there is any evidence of encryption bottlenecks impacting network performance.3.4 Check Event Logs on the Server and Workstation for evidence of encryption related warnings and/or errors.Compile this information into a document titled:“Southern Star – Encryption Technologies Performance Report”. Use the provided Southern Star Report Template.Stage 4: Gathering user feedback after implementation has been completedNow that the encryption technologies are functioning, there is a need to find out how various stakeholders regard the impacts of these newly implemented technologies.4.1 Develop a Feedback form that can be used to obtain feedback from end-users about the impacts (positive and negative) that they have observed.? Remember, most end-users do not understand a lot of technical terms. ? Name the Form “Southern Star end user – Encryption feedback form” ? Use the provided Southern Star Feedback Template.4.2 Develop a Feedback form that can be used to obtain feedback from Helpdesk personnel about the impacts (positive and negative) that they have observed.? Ensure the terminology used is appropriate for Helpdesk personnel.? Name the Form “Southern Star Helpdesk – Encryption feedback form”.? Use the provided Southern Star Feedback Template.End of Assessment
