# Purpose

This standard specifies the technical requirements that wireless infrastructure devices must satisfy to connect to a OlinData BV network. Only those wireless infrastructure devices that meet the requirements specified in this standard or are granted an exception by the InfoSec Team are approved for connectivity to a OlinData BV network.

Network devices including, but not limited to, hubs, routers, switches, firewalls, remote access devices, modems, or wireless access points, must be installed, supported, and maintained by an Information Security (Infosec) approved support organisation. Lab network devices must comply with the Lab Security Policy.

# Scope

All employees, contractors, consultants, temporary and other workers at OlinData BV and its subsidiaries, including all personnel that maintain a wireless infrastructure device on behalf of OlinData BV, must comply with this standard. This standard applies to wireless devices that make a connection the network and all wireless infrastructure devices that provide wireless connectivity to the network.

Infosec must approve exceptions to this standard in advance.

# Standard

1. General Requirements

   All wireless infrastructure devices that connect to a OlinData BV network or provide access to OlinData BV Confidential, OlinData BV Highly Confidential, or OlinData BV Restricted information must:
   * Use Extensible Authentication Protocol-Fast Authentication via Secure Tunnelling (EAP-FAST), Protected Extensible Authentication Protocol (PEAP), or Extensible Authentication Protocol-Translation Layer Security (EAP-TLS) as the authentication protocol.
   * Use Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) or Advanced Encryption System (AES) protocols with a minimum key length of 128 bits.
   * All Bluetooth devices must use Secure Simple Pairing with encryption enabled.

1. Lab and Isolated Wireless Device Requirements

   * Lab device Service Set Identifier (SSID) must be different from OlinData BV production device SSID.
   * Broadcast of lab device SSID must be disabled.

1. Home Wireless Device Requirements

   All home wireless infrastructure devices that provide direct access to a OlinData BV network, such as those behind Enterprise Teleworker (ECT) or hardware VPN, must adhere to the following:
      * Enable WiFi Protected Access Pre-shared Key (WPA-PSK), EAP-FAST, PEAP, or EAP-TLS
      * When enabling WPA-PSK, configure a complex shared secret key (at least 20 characters) on the wireless client and the wireless access point
      * Disable broadcast of SSID
      * Change the default SSID name
      * Change the default login and password
