Dell EMC Metro node 7.0.1 Product Guide

Metro node security features

The operating systems of the metro node management server and the directors are based on a Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 SP1 distribution.

The operating system has been configured to meet Dell EMC security standards by disabling or removing unused services, and protecting access to network services through a firewall.

The metro node security features include:

  • LDAP authentication using OS secure SSSD service
  • HTTPS to access the metro node UI
  • HTTPS inter-cluster link in a metro node Metro configuration
  • SCP to copy files
  • Support for separate networks for all metro node cluster communication
  • Defined user accounts and roles
  • Certificate Authority (CA) certificate (default expiration 5 years)
  • Two host certificates (default expiration 2 years)
  • External directory server support
    CAUTION The WAN-COM inter-cluster link carries unencrypted user data. To ensure privacy of the data, establish an encrypted VPN tunnel between the two sites.

For more information about security features and configuration see the Dell EMC Security Configuration Guide for metro node.
