Testing was remote and included external scanning and detection of known vulnerabilities and configuration errors in active network devices, operating systems, network services and Web applications. For network solutions supporting remote user access, password fitting and session hijacking was attempted. Each vulnerability detected was manually examined in detail by X-Force.
Upon completion of the testing, IBM provided a full report on the studies performed and vulnerabilities detected along with recommended ways of addressing the issues, including IBM software and hardware installation for information security. When all the vulnerabilities and weaknesses are eliminated, Sovcomflot is planning to have the tests rerun in order to make sure its systems are as secure as possible.
This agreement was signed in the fourth quarter of 2007 and was successfully completed in December of 2007.
