  • Need to authenticate users and certify endpoint compliance before provisioning user IP address/granting network access
  • Need to control access to mission critical applications and company sensitive data, allowing only authorized users/devices access
  • Need to populate user/role information in network infrastructure products for access to the network/applications
  • Must be able to identify guest users and to grant them appropriate access, but different access than employees

    3. 3. What is Network Access Control (NAC)? Network access control MUST be a key component of any/every network today! Network Access Control (NAC) Provisions network (and application) access based on a user’s identity, the health and/or security state of their device, network location, what network groups or attributes they have been assigned, and their role
    4. 4. Access Control Issues Mobility driving dynamic network boundaries Widely diverse users and devices Unmanaged or ill-managed endpoints Mission critical network assets Access Increases Explosive growth of vulnerabilities Patch-to-outbreak time getting shorter New breed of threats can arrive with trusted users, devices, and traffic Secure & Resilient Network Experience Decreases INCREASED THREAT VOLUME FASTER OUTBREAKS MORE TARGETS CARELESS USERS MALICIOUS ATTACKERS Harder to control/more demanding applications
    5. 5.

Proprietary and Confidential www.juniper.net Security and Deployment Concerns for Access Control Essential Security Practices Dynamic access privilege management (fine grain security control) leverages a backend AAA infrastructure for policy enforcement The Unified Access Control solution provides fine-grained security control for users and systems The Unified Access Control solution can verify the usage of external modules, system settings, running processes, and binaries/binary checksums in order to identify and classify infected or unknown endpoints. Security precautions are utilized to protect communication with these external programs The Access Control solution protects integrity and confidentiality of secured communication from active attackers on the protected client’s network The Unified Access Control solution provides protection from both infected endpoints and malicious attackers The Infranet Controller appliances run the IVE platform which uses a hardened and minimized operating system and utilizes strong run-time protections for attacks against network services. Infranet Agent deployment does not expose users to network or local privilege escalation or information disclosure security risks. The default Agent distribution mechanism cryptographically protects against middle person attacks and server impersonation attacks The Unified Access Control solution uses a secure deployment model Enforcement of the security policies rely on stateful firewall rules for packet acceptance or rejection. 3 rd party network resources (e.g. upgrades to switches, routers, printers) are not required for a secure end point deployment. The Access Control solution uses strong security protocols, proven security technologies, and requires minimal impact on existing networks.

    31. 31. What the Experts Are Saying About UAC “ All in all, this is a big announcement. You have added a lot of horsepower to it,” says Aaron Vance, senior analyst for the Synergy Research Group, about UAC 2.1 &quot;[N]etwork access control presents [a] significant growth opportunity to the company and UAC could quickly evolve into its flagship security offering. This release helps Juniper remain competitive in a crowded market and better leverage its broader security portfolio,&quot; writes Andrew Braunberg, an analyst with consultancy Current Analysis, on UAC 2.1 “ As for technology solutions users should keep their guard up. Everyone is in this business and promising the moon. Look for open comprehensive solutions that can address immediate threats and then scale gracefully over time. Juniper Networks is one vendor that can meet these requirements”, writes Jon Oltsik, analyst with the Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) “ Juniper took the brain trust from Funk [Software], combined it with a lot of expertise in SSL VPN policy definition, and came up with a solid and credible first stab at the NAC policy-management problem,” says Joel Snyder, senior partner for Opus One, a security consulting firm
    32. 32. UAC: Ripped from the Headlines “ Juniper Networks is updating its Unified Access Control (UAC) technology in a new release that expands the capabilities and definition of what network access control is all about.” – 10/8/07 – Juniper Redefines Network Access Control – Internetnews.com (By Sean Michael Kerner) http://www.internetnews.com/infra/article.php/3703766 “ Andrew Braunberg, senior analyst at Washington, D.C.-based research firm Current Analysis, said Juniper's UAC updates will continue to make Juniper a worthy competitor in the network access control market.” – 10/11/07 – Juniper Updates Network Access Control – SearchNetworking.com (By By Andrew R. Hickey, News Editor) http://searchnetworking.techtarget.com/originalContent/0,289142,sid7_gci1276216,00.html “ Juniper Networks …is adding tighter integration within its security portfolio by tying its network access control and intrusion prevention technologies together.” – 10/8/07 – Juniper Links NAC, Intrusion Prevention – ChannelWeb (CMP Channels) (By Jennifer Hagendorf Follett) http://www.crn.com/security/202300203 “ So if IDP picked up on a certain machine blasting out thousands of e-mails, for instance, that information would be shared with the Infranet Controller, which could quarantine the machine, end its session or simply log the event. Operating alone, IDP drops malicious packets but doesn’t deal with their source. This is a good addition to Juniper’s NAC offering…” – 10/8/07 – Juniper's NAC upgrade takes action against machines behaving badly – Network World (By Tim Greene) http://www.networkworld.com/newsletters/vpn/2007/1008nac1.html
    33. 33. UAC: Ripped from the Headlines <ul><li>“ We chose Juniper's UAC 2.0 for this test drive because it claimed to use TNC standards to interoperate in a diverse multi-vendor environment. By the end, we were pleased to have implemented nearly all of our planned policies, using most of the switches and APs that we happened to try.” – 6/25/07 – Bolting the Back Door with NAC – ISP Planet (By Lisa Phifer) </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.isp-planet.com/technology/2007/nac_4f.html </li></ul>“ Juniper takes NAC to the next level with the integration between the UAC appliance and Juniper’s ScreenOS-based firewall product line but only inside the TCG/TNC NAC framework. Using Juniper’s access control model, you not only separate users based on VLANs, you also scatter firewalls inside your network to provide full stateful firewall rules for each user.” – 4/19/07 – NAC Enforcement Tools Fall Short – Network World (By Joel Snyder) http://www.networkworld.com/reviews/2007/041907-nac-enforcement.html?page=3 “ Juniper brought in a NetScreen 5GT firewall and developed a more elegant solution for guest users based on the standard tools built-in to ScreenOS and the UAC appliance. Because the ScreenOS operating system inside of the firewall is tied closely to the Juniper UAC appliance, the firewall was able to cooperate with the UAC appliance and create a captive portal environment that was closely tied to the policy tools within the UAC.” – 4/19/07 – NAC Authentication with XP Clients is a Snap – Network World (By Joel Snyder) http://www.networkworld.com/reviews/2007/041907-nac-authentication.html?page=3
