BSD Computing Activities
  • BIS PeopleSoft activities
  • Information Management (in DOE sense)
  • Computer Security (in DOE sense)
  • Desktop Support
  • BSD Firewall Project

Bill Johnson, BSD

bis peoplesoft system
BIS PeopleSoft System
  • Development by SCS Business Applications Support (BAS)
    • Tightly “matrixed” to BSD
  • Desktop support supplied directly by BSD
  • Year 2000 Testing
    • Mandated by DOE before 3/31/99
    • Currently developing Testbed environment
    • Target completion date 1/4/99

information management activities
Information Management Activities
  • Year 2000 Point-of-Contact with DOE
  • UNICALL Budget Cross-cut
    • Used to be IM budget for the whole Lab
    • May be different this year
  • Review of Purchase Requisitions for IT acquisitions
    • $20K threshold
    • Reviewed for technical coherence with respect to other Lab programs
    • Major Information Acquisitions (MIAs)--$1M threshold

doe computer security
DOE Computer Security
  • “Computer Protection Program Manager” or CPPM
  • Preparation of the Laboratory Computer Protection Plan (CPP)
  • Liaison with DOE for incident reporting
  • Lab representative for Unclassified Computer Security at DOE meetings
    • Tensions between Unclassified and Classified Programs
    • Just lived through an attempt to combine
    • Bad guys seem to be winning again

desktop support activities
Desktop Support Activities
  • BSD was the first Departmental “Trusting” Windows NT Domain
  • Support 154 Windows NT Systems and 2 Macs
    • Only 3 self administered NT systems
    • Very different user community than rest of Lab
  • Very close alliance with SCS Desktop Support Group
    • Championed SMS development
    • Deep security concerns since NT is a “sieve” when it comes out of the box

Bill Johnson, BSD

bsd firewall project
BSD Firewall Project
  • Protect the PeopleSoft Database and a few key BSD workstations through any attacks that are mounted against SLAC
  • “Hydra” Server with RS5 encrypted clients for all PeopleSoft access
  • Network VLAN isolation in the event of an attack
  • Need for timely and systematic technology upgrades
    • Mature Domain
    • Essential for Desktop support
    • Needs to be funded globally, not from group budgets
