The IP Office system and its applications support a range of features for making links between them and users more secure. Full details of the options available are described in the Avaya IP Office Platform Security Guidelines manual.

This section covers only some basic changes recommended to help make a new system more secure.

1.Changing the Default Security Settings

2.Changing the Remote User Password

3.Disabling SIP Trunk Support

4.Disabling H.323 Telephone Support

5.Disabling SIP Extension Support

6.Adding a Certificate

Additional recommendations:

If the network to which the IP Office is attached has external public Internet access, that access must be controlled by some additional security devices such as a Firewall and, for VoIP, a Session Border Controller (SBC).

If LAN2 (the WAN port) is not being used, ensure that it is not connected to the network.
