    • 186. Footnotes for previous slide
      • 1 . Whole devices can be encrypted, and can be enabled and enforced with the security policies in 8.5.2+. iPhones that don't support hardware encryption can be blocked. The 3GS & 4G support hardware encryption, Original and 3G don't. Domino policies that admins can use to force the enablement of encryption and block unencrypted phones are:
        • Prohibit unencrypted devices
        • 187. Prohibit devices incapable of security enablement
      • 2 . Storage cards can be encrypted. Data in native PIM/email applications is not encrypted except for Domino encrypted mail.
      • 188. 3. Domino Policies that admins can use to manage passwords are:
        • Device password
        • 189. Prohibit ascending, descending and repeating sequences
        • 190. Require alphanumeric value
        • 191. Minimum password length
        • 192. Minimum number of complex characters
        • 193. Password expiration period
        • 194. Password history count
        • 195. Auto lock period (maximum)
        • 196. Wrong passwords before wiping device
        • 197. Dynamic policy changes (admin changes are automatically synchronized to the device without requiring user interaction)
      • 4. Static policy changes (user must remove and reinstall the Apple Profile)
    • 198. On-device encryption
      • iOS - Except for early models (original and 3G) the iPhone/iPads are password protected at the device level and, by definition, data is encrypted. The level of encryption is controlled by Apple and is described here:
        • Device policies, restrictions and strong encryption methods on iPhone provide a layered approach to keeping your information secure. iPhone uses AES 256-bit hardware encryption to protect all data at rest. To further secure mail messages and attachments iPhone uses Data Protection which leverages the unique device passcode to generate the encryption key. And, in the event of a lost or stolen iPhone, all data and settings can be cleared by issuing a remote wipe command from Exchange or a Mobile Device Management server.
      • Android - Mail, calendar, attachments, are fully under Traveler control and are all AES 256 encrypted. Contacts application comes with the OS and is outside of Traveler and therefore not encrypted by Traveler.
      • 199. Nokia/Symbian - Storage cards can be encrypted. Mail/PIM data is not encrypted except for Domino encrypted email, but certain Symbian device models (E5, E52, E55, E72) support encryption, though not enforce-able by Traveler.
      • 200. Windows Mobile - Storage cards can be encrypted. Mail/PIM data is not encrypted except for Domino encrypted email.
    • 201. Traveler Companion for iPhone/iPad
      • Companion App for iPhone/iPad; Read/compose Domino encrypted mail
      • 202. Free download available from Apple iTunes Apps Store
      • 203. Coming soon – password caching (enter password once per session)
    • 204. Android Device security capabilities
      • Traveler Mail and Calendar data encrypted (on phone storage or sdcard)
      • 205. Wipe and Password policies primarily based on Android 2.2 security capabilities:
        • Device wipe to factory settings, sdcard wipe, Traveler data only wipe
        • 206. Alphanumeric device level password enforcement
      • Android 2.1 and older not capable of device or sdcard wipe, or device level password enforcement
        • Setting in the Traveler server security policy can control if these devices are allowed to connect to the Traveler server
    • 207. Security Planning and Capabilities
      • Admin can pullback request if caught before command activation.
      Remote Wipe
      • Several wipe options available for Android/WM/Nokia,Apple
      • 208. Hard reset device action removes all data and applications on device
      • 209. Wipe commands are delivered over TCP and SMS push channels (no SMS support on iPhone)
      • 210. Wipe order remains in effect on the server until cancelled
    • 211. Default Settings and Security Profiles
      • LotusTraveler.nsf Default Settings view
      • 212. Alternative to Domino Traveler Settings in policies
    • 213. Filtered access -Restrict access by device category Examples:
      • "Apple" - all Apple devices are allowed to sync, but no other devices.
      • 214. "(IBM SyncML Client)|(Lotus Traveler WM)" - All Windows Mobile devices (old and new) are allowed to sync, but no other devices.
      • 215. "(Nokia SyncML HTTP Client)|(Lotus Traveler Nokia)" - All Nokia devices (old and new) are allowed to sync, but no other devices.
      • 216. "Lotus Traveler * 8.5.2" - Only 8.5.2 Windows Mobile and Nokia clients are allowed to sync, but not Apple devices.
      • 217. "(Apple)|(Lotus Traveler WM)" - Only Apple and 8.5.2 Windows Mobile clients are allowed to sync, but not Nokia devices.
      • 218. "Apple-iPhone/7" - only Apple iPhones (not iPods or iPads) using OS 3 are allowed to sync (Windows Mobile and Nokia devices are not allowed either).
      • 219. "Lotus Traveler Android" - Only Android devices are allowed to sync.
      More information -
    • 220. Network topologies
      • Three network topology options to consider.....
    • 223. Direct Connect Understanding data flow using Lotus Notes Traveler in the DMZ Lotus Domino mail servers (7.0.2 +) Lotus Domino 8.5.2 with Lotus Notes Traveler 8.5.2.x service Apple devices Push Request (SSL/443) Periodic poll for DB changes Notes RPC (TCP/1352) App needs to sync Sync Request (SSL/443) Data access Notes RPC (TCP/1352) Android,Nokia & Windows Mobile SMS Email Notification (optional for Android/WM/Nokia only) Internet Domain (untrusted) DMZ Intranet Domain (trusted)
    • 224. Reverse Proxy Reverse Proxy Configuration
    • 225. VPN Configuration Virtual Private Network
    • 226. Things to know
      • Guidelines for configuration/Infrastructure See doc on planning your environment --
      • 227. Capacity planning - See 8.5.2 performance report --- - See capacity planning doc -- - Capacity is based on workload which can vary incredibly between deployments. Look at things like CPU, memory, etc. For initial planning purposes ~ 2K per server is an upper end ballpark
      • 228. Memory and thread sizing confusion with some users (e.g. some Traveler servers still have 100 HTTP active threads when they might really need 300) - See configuring a Traveler server -- - MUST READ - Tuning section of the doc - - Traveler Health check command - "tell traveler status" tells you if your HTTP threads are too low or if you are using more devices than you have threads allocated.
    • 229. Server Best Practices
      • Install Lotus Traveler on Windows 64-bit server
        • Access to > 2GB virtual memory is critical in larger mobile user populations (> 300)
        • 230. Virtual memory is shared across all Domino processes and can exceed 2GB
        • 231. Reduce memory overhead with notes.ini setting NTS_BUFFER_POOL_SIZE_MB=256
      • Avoid running multiple applications on the Lotus Traveler server
        • Some applications make server changes which are not compatible with Lotus Traveler (e.g. Disabling HTTP JVM)
