Workstation security

This section provides information about providing system security through asset tracking, password
security, hard disk drive locking, and chassis locks.

Asset tracking

Asset tracking features incorporated into the workstation provide asset tracking data that can be
managed using HP Systems Insight Manager (HP SIM), HP CMS, or other systems-management
Seamless, automatic integration between asset tracking features and these products lets you choose the
management tool best suited to the environment and to leverage investments in existing tools.
HP also offers several solutions for controlling access to valuable components and information:
HP ProtectTools Embedded Security prevents unauthorized access to data, checks system integrity,
and authenticates third-party users attempting system access.
Security features such as ProtectTools and the Side access panel sensor (Smart Cover Sensor) help
prevent unauthorized access to the data and to the internal components of the workstation.
By disabling parallel, serial, or USB ports, or by disabling removable-media boot capability, you
can protect valuable data assets.
Memory Change and Side access panel sensor (Smart Cover Sensor) alerts can be forwarded to
system management applications to deliver proactive notification of tampering with a
workstation's internal components.
ProtectTools, the Side access panel sensor (Smart Cover Sensor), and the Side access panel solenoid
lock (Hood Lock) are available as options on select systems.
Use the following utilities to manage security settings on the HP workstation:
(Local) Use the Computer Setup (F10) Utility.
(Remote) Use HP CMS or System SSM, which let you use a simple command-line utility to control
security settings and permit the secure and consistent deployment.
