In this final post on fraud protection in DOCSIS networks, let’s examine how security roles in the Incognito solution can be utilized to prevent service theft.
Administrator accounts enable you to set up users that function in different assigned security roles:
Super User: Super user accounts always have access to all aspects of the DHCP service configuration. This access cannot be removed or restricted by any other security settings or Access Control Lists.
Account Administrator: Only super users and account administrators are able to add, modify or delete existing accounts, with one exception: every user can change his or her own password from the File –> Change Password menu item
Service Manager: Only super users and users with this attribute set can access service configuration and operations
In addition to the security roles, the DHCP service also supports specific database access privileges. User can be set to have either “read-only” or “manage” access to specific service features.
