4. Project: Secure Master (Dec'98 to Decí00) Phase 1: Secure Master1.0 (Dec 98 to Mar 99) Phase 2: Secure Master2.0 (Apr 99 to Mar 00). Phase 3: Secure Master3.0 (Apr 00 to Dec 00).

Client: NEC, Company: Wipro Technologies, Work Place: Japan/India

Environment: VC++5.0/6.0, MFC, Java, Oracle8.0, Netscape Directory Server4.0, IIS, Netscape Enterprise Server, WIN NT4.0, HP-UX

Secure Master is an Intranet application whose primary purpose is to control access to the resources (for e.g.: web pages) residing on different target systems. A huge database with a list of users, user information, resources access permission for the users and much more will be maintained on the Secure Master server. Such lists will be exported to the servers where the resources are actually present. When a user tries to access a resource, the server will first check (with the help of plug-in) if the user has permission to access that particular resource. It denies access if the user is not valid. Currently, the system supports web page as a resource that means web server as resource server. The web server gets the access control list (ACL) from Secure Master. The end user of this system needs certificate or user id / password to access the resources on the web server.

Responsibility (Phase 1):

CGI development for "User Search" and "Resource Search" modules. When the Secure Master operator selects user search or resource search, a form will be displayed showing the search conditions. Based on the search criteria specified by the operator, search result will be displayed.

Concepts involved: CGI programming

Responsibility (Phase 2):

Enhancement of Secure Master application. Prepared the functional specification for the following.

i) IIS Plug-in Support

The current system uses Netscape Enterprise Server (NS-ES) as a Web Server. The plug-in is implemented using NSAPI. This project is to enhance the existing system, so that IIS web server also can be used as a resource server same as NS-ES. The functional specification explains in detail the requirement to implement an access control plug-in on Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS).

Developed IIS Plug-in using the ISAPI Extension Wizard of Developer Studio 5.0. IIS Plugin, upon loading creates a thread, which loads the access control information (user-certificate info, userid-password info and Web resource access control information) in to the NT shared memory. Whenever a web resource (web page) is accessed, the user-certificate information or userid-password information is fetched, and the user authentication operation is performed by comparing the information in the shared memory. If the user is authenticated, requested URL is fetched and compared with the access permissions in the shared memory. If permission is available, user can access the resource. At any point of time, the plug-in thread can be notified by an external command to load the new access control files in to the NT shared memory.

Concepts involved: ISAPI, Certificate authentication, Basic authentication, Access control to URLs, NT shared memory.

ii) Event notification

This project is mainly focussing on notifying the system administrator of security sensitive events like attempts to trespass security levels or any important events that may lead to security problems in Secure Master. Also, this project keeps track of information of significant events that might help the system administrator in troubleshooting.

Responsibility (Phase 3):

The Secure Master security framework is a system, which manages the control of user information, resource information and access to the resource (Web Pages). The resources will reside on various target systems (Resource Servers). The access control information is passed on to such resource servers.

For authentication user-id/password and certificates are used. The certificate generation process is managed by an application SMCertMan (SECUREMASTER Certificate Management). SMCertMan contacts CARAS system (NEC's Certificate Issuing Authority), which issues the certificate. Using this application the operator can do the following main operations.

1) Request a certificate for the selected user.

2) Store the certificate in a media.

3) Store the PIN for certificate.

4) Store the password.

5) Search the users/certificates based on conditions specified.

6) Search valid/invalid certificates.

In summary, the NEC Certificate Management Tool is used to generate, maintain and transfer the certificates, pin and password to an output medium. Netscape directory server 4.0 is used as back end for storing the information.

(i) Preparing the detail design document for SMCertMan

The purpose of this document is to provide the detailed design to support the LDAP based storage for user certificate & password, and interface with CARAS (CA) system. Design of certificate information storage in LDAP, GUI design, class diagram & relationship, file input/output format, command line support and program specifications with pseudo-code illustration are the major contents of this document.

(ii) Developing SMCertMan application.

Coding, writing unit test cases, system test cases, debugging and testing were the activities involved in developing this application.

(iii) Developing the interface for COM service

SMCertMan tool will interact with Netscape directory server through an interface provided by the COM service (called DBAServer). The interface in turn directly calls the LDAP APIs. Additional functions needed by SMCertMan tool to interact with directory server are added to the COM interface.

(iv) In addition to the above activities I was involved in the following short duration activities.

- Performing code review for the other modules.

- Performing system tests on different tools in the product and also on the whole product.

- Bug fixing for SECUREMASTER phase 1 and phase 2 of the project.

- Running the plug-in on iPlanet web server and performing the system test.

- Analyzing the plug-in code for thread safe on iPlanet web server.

Concepts involved: LDAP APIs, COM, ADO.

Test server is used to perform various tests on the LCD Screen to identify defect points, and the results of the test are stored in the server. My responsibilities in the projects were as follows.

Responsibility as a programmer:

As a Programmer I developed following modules.

i) Sequencer module

Sequencer is an instrument (supplied by Olympus) which provides information regarding LCD Screen under test. Data is fetched from the sequencer by means of handshaking. Based on the data fetched from the sequencer, query string is constructed and the query is fired to access more details from the server. Data fetched from the server undergoes many calculations and is displayed on the screen. Also the data will become input to another module.

Concepts involved: ODBC, Multiple Recordset, DLL, RS232C Communication.

 

ii) Fujitsu Data Gather System

Fujitsu Computers will send a stream of data. The data has to be read, applied to calculations and displayed in different panes, and stored as result files. The receiving and processing of data is a background process and involves thread communication.

Concepts involved: Multithreading, Splitter windows, RS232C Communication
