Description
User and role definition: User refers to the operator who logins and uses the U31 system. While creating a user, the system administrator defines the access rights given to the user by specifying his role. The user can not modify own rights, and his or her operations are related with own rights except for administrator. Through the role management and user management, U31 ensures the security of the system. System administrator can restrict a user from certain operation, it means if a user group is restricted from doing some operation, then even if a user of that group gets right from another group (one user can be in one more user groups), user will not be able to perform the restricted task. Creating, modifying, and deleting users are supported: Creating user: create a new user include, defining user name, password, password expiry limits, password length, other users information (e-mail address, telephone number etc.), assigned role for user, operation authority. Modifying user: include modify certain users name, password, password expiry conditions, password length, other users information (e-mail address, telephone number etc.), assigned role for user, operation authority. Deleting user: delete appointed user. Password policy can be set: At least six characters;

Login history is recorded: The user login time can be queried and set, and the user locking history record can be queried. User account rule management: User can view, customize log on password length, user password strategy, and also can define maximum/minimum password length, set account limit rule, including accounts lockup status and lockup rule. User also can define password wrong number and release time, also can carry out overdue accounts check and password overdue check. User can launch authorization failure number continuously, for example, if authorization failure for 5, system will forbid this user, which can prevent illegal users log on system. Logon user management: Log on period U31 system can set log on period for user, user can only log on during specified period. Forced disconnection of a user A super administrator can force disconnection of a login user to prevent illegal operation and ensure system security. Setting a login IP range for a super administrator Upon login, a super administrator is entitled to any operation without control. To regulate and control an administrators login range, it is allowed to set a specific login IP range for a super administrator, who can only log in to an IP address within this range, but cant log in to any IP address without this range even through the username and password are both correct. Modifying all user passwords A super administrator can modify the password of any user other than administrators. This modification is not restricted by any password rules. All users passwords can be modified into a single password. This password modification way enables a super administrator to unify an initial user password and prevent other users, especially illegal users from login, so as to better ensure system security. Viewing user locking details and de-locked users An administrator can have a real-time knowledge of user locking details and unlock any locked user whenever necessary. The system can also provide a locked user with automatic unlocking function, with which the user can customize automatic unlocking time within the account locking restriction rules. Interface locking

8.6.3

Description
ZTE U31 server can record the origination of the subscribers login, operation commands and execution results. Log Management provides 3 types of log: Operation log: Operation log record refers to the log for the operations initiated at the interface like user's operation information, such as the creation or deletion of NE, or modification of NE parameters, and so on. Other operations through other access modes such as CORBA, Telnet and Web-based modes are also recorded. At present, these logs are basically recorded through the F interface uniformly, or they can be also recorded by invoking the log interface at the client or server side. For example, such access modes as CORBA and Telnet modes need to invoke the log interface by themselves to record logs. In the log item, there is a flag to indicate whether the operation is successful or failed. System log: The system log records some operations performed at the server background, such as performance collection scheduled task and scheduled backup task. Others are the system logs when the notification information is sent from the northbound interface. For example, the data can be reported if a notification is sent to ZTE U31 when the NE reports performance data, and then ZTE U31 will record a system log. The system log also provides interfaces at the server and client. The processing mode is the same as that for the operation log. Security log: Security log records the log when the user logs on the system, such as login success, login failure and failure cause, and it provides the interface at the server. Security log need not record two time points, but only one operation time. That is, the security log need be recorded once only. At login at different access modes the security log should also be record now. Except for above three types of logs, event report is also recorded into alarm database. Event report log: Event report log records a log when the event message is reported. For example, a log is recorded when an alarm event is reported. Currently, the reported event is recorded in its own module usually. For example, the alarm event is recorded in the database of the alarm module. Log query is provided for log statistics: Query and statistics can be calculated according to different conditions, such as user name, operation terminal, operation time, operation type, completion status for the tracing and location of modification to the NE. Operation log query:

Setting Log Filtering Conditions: At present, filtering conditions can be set for system log only to perform filtering by level. After a level is set, the logs lower than this level will be filtered away if system logs are recorded later. Log deleting is provided: Delete operation logs: Provides operation logs deletion function based on date Auto delete operation logs: Automatically deletes the operation logs after the user defined time frame. Operating system event record: Operating system event is supported, for example: close and start of server, link setup and break. Software download and activation record: Destination NE for download, download time, and version, activation time. Backup and restoration record: Backup time and content, restoration time, restoration of content are also recorded. Log exporting and printing: Log exporting refers to exporting according to the current querying condition, and the exported records should be all the records that satisfy the current querying condition. The exported logs can be saved in XLS format at the client. The same as log exporting, the printed records are all of the records satisfying the current querying condition. Log policy:
