Analysis of Laptop Security Incident at Los Alamos Laboratory-Ciscop Consulting-


Incident

  • 80 Laptops lost

    • 13 Found missing when audited

  • All Laptops lost offsite


How it Happened

  • No audits

  • No Check-in or check-out procedures

    • There were, but were not followed

    • Failure to know where laptops were


Recommendation

  • Establish two security levels

  • Low Risk Classification

    • Desktop or on-campus devices

    • Non classified data

  • High Risk Classification

    • Mobile or laptop devices

    • Sensitive or classified data


Low Risk Classification

  • Spiceworks

  • Check-in and out procedures

  • Physically locking machines down

  • More regularly scheduled and formal audits


SpiceWorks

  • Separate Spiceworks servers high risk/low risk

    • Additional servers

  • Spiceworks audits daily electronically

    • Only if computer doesn’t check in for the day Monday-Friday


Lock Down Machines

  • Non mobile devices locked down

  • Laptop Lockdowns

    • $10

  • Desktop lockdowns

    • $10/15ft of cable

      • Covers 3 computers

    • $3 per lock


High Risk Classification

  • Beacons

  • RFID

  • Encrypted hard drives


Beacons

  • Constantly sends a location packet to the server

  • Wipes the hard dive upon server request

  • Built into the BIOS

  • Can be used as an auditing tool


RFID’s

  • Passive tags

  • Creates a log of when and

  • where a device leaves

  • High implementation costs

  • Low recurring costs


RFID’s

  • Estimated prices

    • Readers $500 - $2,000

    • Tags 7-15 cents each

    • Support software


Encrypted Hard drives

  • All Mobile devices

  • Full Disc Encryption (FDE)

    • Uses AES requires authentication before boot up will occur

      • Password

      • Biometrics

      • Smart cards

    • Hard ware encryption

    • Seagate Monentus 7200 rpm FDE.2 ST9250411AS 89.99


Check-in/out Procedures

  • RFID’s help to denote high and low risk

  • Low risk laptops

    • Basic Check-out procedures

      • Once weekly

      • Monitored by SpiceWorks

        • SpiceWorks audits once weekly

  • High risk laptops

    • Check-out Daily

    • Check-in Daily

    • Constantly Monitored by SpiceWorks
