Conformance to International Standards for Security Continously updated Security System through Approved Procedures and yearly auditings Provided Security Services: Firewalling Antivirus Intrusion Detection Penetration tests Vulnerability assessment

13 13 EEE – September, 2003 Security Measures Secure Network Management Centre distributed through Independent Screened Subnets Intranet traffic segregation for each PA Extranet traffic interchange through secure gateways Access to the Internet through a single secure gateway; Up to date Intrusion Detection Systems Operators Authentication through Token System

14 14 EEE – September, 2003 Some relevant new projects on RUPA MIUR:An XDSL network for 11.000 schools (intranet & internet) INPS:Data Centre Business Continuity Min. della Giustizia:A customized Firewalling solution Regione Lazio:A network for e-Lazio Monopoli di Stato:Bingo network Ministero Interno:Demographic Services AGEA:A network for agriculture subsidies data transfer Several Central P.As.Metropolitan Area Networks

15 15 EEE – September, 2003 Outcome of RUPA experience Great reduction in costs/bandwith ratio for all services Increase of bandwidth demand by PAs (annual average increase of 39%) Standardization of applications networking in the PAs Fast provisioning of Customer links and low time to restore Increased Network Security Need for different standards of service according to Customer requirements Long time and high costs needed to change Network solution

16 16 EEE – September, 2003 The future: SPC (Sistema Pubblico di Connettività) Main targets: -To provide a shared infrastructure both for implementing PAs intranet as well for the interconnection between PAs, promoting the homogeneous development on the entire territory and saving as much as possible the assets/investments already been deployed. - SPC, although based on the Internet paradigmas, should offer guaranteed performances - Services should be diversified in terms of quality and security, depending on the different requirements - to allow interaction between PAs and the external environment (enterprises, research, citizens, etc.), providing diversified access privileges - to found a multivendor system that can leverage on the market opportunities
