SAMSUNG MFP SECURITY
Protocol Management can select whether a network protocol is used or not. According to a user's network policy, some
protocols can be disabled and this can protect an MFP from an external network attack like a port scan. Additionally
Protocol Management can reduce network traffic. Samsung MFPs can support Protocol Management for the following
Samsung MFPs support IP Filtering to configure available IP Address Ranges. Only registered IP devices can print or scan
through a network. Samsung MFPs support IPv4 Filtering and IPv6 Filtering. This can protect MFPs from unknown
network devices (supports 10 IPv4 address ranges and 10 IPv6 address ranges).
MAC Address Filtering is also capable of rejecting or accepting request comes from particular Ethernet MAC address.
Key Benefit of Using Secure Network
The Samsung MFP Secure Network feature protects your information from unauthorized network access.
Hackers are always finding new ways to access your valuable information. One of those new points of access is through
what were once considered "dumb" devices. Now because of the high level of features and technology in these devices
and their network management access, you must employ security measures that protect these devices. Methods of
protection include IP/MAC address filtering. This only allows PCs that have a registered IP address (Internet Protocol) or
MAC address (Media Access Control) to access and use the device over the network. Server-based port filtering is another
method used when the network firewall software does not suffice to secure servers and LANs from TCP/IP-based security
attacks. Network data encryption can also be deployed to protect print data streams and Web interfaces from
eavesdropping and making malicious data interceptions. Transport Layer Security (TLS) and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL),
are used as cryptographic protocols to provide security and data integrity for communications over TCP/IP networks. By
shuffling data and passwords as they travel over the LAN, these security protocols make it very difficult for hackers to
intercept, decipher, and tamper with this information. Another method of protection is cryptographic algorithms used on
internal hard drives and volatile memory that could be accessed maliciously. Samsung even includes overwriting of
unwanted data from the hard drive so that it can never be recovered, ensuring the confidentiality of vital data and
The Samsung MFP provides the feature management option to enable/disable the port/protocol and physical device such
as Ethernet and USB host/device. Therefore, if administrators don't want to use physical interface such as USB port, USB
device, and Ethernet (Network Connection), the administrators easily disable the each interface.
In general, Samsung MFP does not provide network access abilities thru the USB port/device. Therefore, the malicious
users cannot access the network thru any other interface. Therefore, even if the Samsung MFP is installed within a LAN
and a PC is connected thru USB additionally with the device, PC cannot access the network thru the MFP. Samsung
Printing Division assures that any users cannot access the network thru any USB port/device.
