This week, a credit service in India called Creditseva suffered a data breach which exposed details of some 48,000 citizens – including driver’s licenses, home addresses and credit reports.

How to Stop Certificate Warning Messages When Accessing Immediate Insight via HTTPS

Step 1: (if not already completed) Enabling Encryption

Immediate Insight streams data to the client by opening two websocket connections to the browser, a control channel and a data channel. By default, Immediate Insight is configured for HTTP. To activate encryption (HTTPS) on websockets:

    • Type set-ssl command to enable encryption on browser sessions.

    • Type reload server to make changes take effect.

    • Quit browser and re-login using https instead of http (https://ip-address-of-server:3201) - Chrome is the recommended browser.

    Note: You will get a Certificate warning but will be able to login after ignoring it.


    Step 2: Managing Certificates & Stopping Warning Messages

    We recommend the best practice use of matching CA certs installed in user’s browsers to reduce the possibility of man-in-the-middle attacks and provide a smoother user experience.

    During installation, a self-signed rootCA pair is generated automatically in app/config/certs.

    Note: You can replace this pair with your own CA by overwriting the rootCA.key and rootCA.pem files, however this is an advanced task - most can use the self-signed certs provide.

    Type set-certs followed by reload server to activate the certificate.

    Next, copy app/config/certs/rootCA.pem file from the Immediate Insight server to your computer (using an SFTP or SCP client)

    Load the Certificate into your Browser. Instructions for Chrome:

      • Settings -> Show Advanced Settings -> HTTPS/SSL -> Manage Certificates
      • Trusted Root Certification Authorities -> Import (specify rootCA.pem file)

      Restart browser - next time you log into Immediate Insight you should not see cert warning.

      Note: While the system has a reasonable set of security measures in place, the present release is designed to run in a secure and trusted environment. If you have a need to expose it directly to the Internet, please contact iisupport@firemon.com to discuss additional hardening procedures.

      Jul 27, 2017 Bridge the Gap Between Your Risk & Network Teams to Reduce Risk
      Recent cyberattacks such as Wannacry and Petya magnify the need to make risk and vulnerability management a top priority for organizations.  Combine that with a network security posture that is too open from years of access changes and little policy cleanup, organizations are more at risk now than at any time in history.

      The Return on Security of FireMon’s Security Manager
      IANS
      Large Healthcare Provider
      The customer sought a data analysis tool to correlate application data with network and security data to spot service-impacting anomalies. They did not have an accurate picture of interoperability between applications and the underlying infrastructure.
      Major Airline
      Following a merger with another airline, this customer was left managing a large number of firewalls and routers from different security vendors using a home-grown application.
      National Insurance Provider
      This national insurance provider had three problems to tackle regarding their firewall policies. First, the number of rules under management was overwhelming staff and processes. They needed to increase visibility and effectiveness of their firewall change request/workflow ticketing process. And they also need help maintaining compliance PCI DSS requirements.
      Managed Service Provider
      Each time this Global MSP engaged a new customer, they had to onboard the firewalls – sometimes hundreds per engagement – into their network. Part of the onboarding process required assessing the policies against internal best practices – a manual, line-by-line process that took an average of 16 hours/firewall and was extremely error-prone.
