Network Security Management For A National ISP
A network is one of the most important basic resources large institution (educational or commercial) needs to
have. Today, networks play a very important role in every organization. With widespread distributed deployment t,
managing the security of a network becomes very complex especially from the viewpoint of an ISP. ISP's are by inherently
more vulnerable because they have to offer a multitude of public services. Both for their customers and on behalf of them.
Effective network and security management needs to be implemented taking into consideration the lack of bandwidth and
availability of computing resources at the nodes. Security management now plays a larger role as all communication is over
the insecure Internet. In this paper, the various issues involved in developing a Security Management System for a low
bandwidth network is discussed. Then, a solution implemented based on open standards for n - Logue (a national ISP
focusing on rural areas) is presented.
