B.

The BaseManager 2.0 server shall require access to the Internet to access and dis
play
satellite map data.

C.

The BaseManager 2.0 server shall require an externally accessible static IP address or
hostname
if external access is desired:

1.

To allow remote desktop and laptop users to access the system, or

2.

To allow mobile devices to access the
server

D.

The BaseManager 2.0 server shall enable users to

based) interface, and the controllers are connected through web
-
based ports (HTML
-
5 standard, WebSocket Protocol)

ying media types (cell, wireless, packet
-
radio) as
needed along the route

logs and information, and enables remote updating and configuration
.

E.

Networking

securely
over SSL port 443.

a.

Controllers shall be required to talk to the server on that port.

b.

There shall be no requirement for opening firewall pinholes or configuring
port mappi
ng at an off
-
site facility
, unless outgoing connections on port
443 are specifically blocked.

d.

Controllers shall be able to connect to the IP address of a single assigned
BaseManager 2.0 server (programmable).

2.

Security measures specific to
cloud
-
based BaseManager

2.0

a.

All data shall be stored on a
database server (mySQL) that is not externally
accessible other than through activities and reports available through SSL
-
encrypted web access.

b.

External access to the server is available using pre
-
shared keys by Baseline
administrative employees only from
known IP addresses.

c.

Controllers initiate all connections to the server and will not accept any
external connections.

d.

The BaseManager 2.0 server shall require controllers to be authorized in
order to connect to the server.

enerate authorization PINs for
controllers that are attempting to connect.

controllers to their company.

f.

The BaseManager 2.
0 server shall track and
manage

controller connections
using the unique MAC address of each controller.

3.

Security measures specific to
self
-
hosted BaseManager 2.0

a.

All data shall be stored on a local database server (mySQL). Traffic is
internal only to local

drive. There is no database access from external
connections.

b.

Industry standard Apache web security shall be employed. Further access
controls shall be supported to manage access via IP, network, or MAC
address through the .htaccess facility of Apache.

c.

Co
ntrollers only listen to the assigned server, only over the WebSocket
Protocol (not HTTP), and only through encrypted traffic.

d.

Controllers/clients need not respond over the same Ethernet device on the
server. In some standalone situations, it may be prefer
able to have
controllers on their own Internet
-
isolated network.

e.

Webmin (
a
web
-
based system configuration and management tool) shall
be enabled by default on a specified SSL (https) port 10001. Webmin

access shall be capable of being disabled from external access (i.e.,
localhost only) or disabled entirely.
