1 CISSP Exam Notes - Physical Security 1 CISSP Exam Notes - Physical Security 1. Introduction 1.1 Physical security addresses the physical protection of the resources of an organization, which include people, data, facilities, equipment, systems, etc. It concerns with people safety, how people can physically enter an environment and how the environmental issues affect equipment and systems. People safety always takes precedence over the other security factors. 1.2 Physical security is the first line of defense. 1.3 Major sources of physical security threats are: Weather, e.g. temperature, humidity, water, flood, wind, snow, lightening, etc. Fire and Chemical, e.g. explosion, smoke, toxic material, industrial pollution, etc. Earth movement, e.g. earthquake, volcano, slide, etc. Object movement, e.g. building collapse, falling object, car, truck, plane, etc. Energy, e.g. electricity, magnetism, radio wave anomalies, etc. Equipment, e.g. mechanical or electronic component failure, etc. Organism, e.g. virus, bacteria, animal, insect, etc. Human, e.g. strike, war, sabotage, etc. 1.4 There are three major types of control mechanisms for physical security: Administrative controls, e.g. facility selection, facility construction and management, personnel control, evacuation procedure, system shutdown procedure, fire suppression procedure, handling procedures for other exceptions such as hardware failure, bomb threats, etc. Physical controls, e.g. facility construction material, key and lock, access card and reader, fence, lighting, etc. Technical controls, e.g. physical access control and monitoring system, intrusion detection and alarm system, fire detection and suppression system, uninterrupted power supply, heating / ventilation / air conditioning system (HVAC), disk mirroring, data backup, etc. 1.5 Some physical security controls are required by laws, e.g. fire exit door, fire alarm, etc.
2 CISSP Exam Notes - Physical Security 2 2. Facility Requirement 2.1 Factors that should be considered when selecting a site are: Visibility, e.g. surrounding terrain, markings and signs, etc. Local considerations, e.g. crime rate, adjacent neighbors, proximity to police and fire station, etc. Transportation, e.g. road access and traffic condition, proximity to airport and train station, etc. Natural threats, e.g. likelihood of flood, earthquake, or other natural threats. Depending on the needs of a business, some of the above concerns may be more important than the others. 2.2 A data center should be located: Not on the top floor (for fire consideration). Not in the basement (for flooding consideration). In the core of a building (for providing protection from natural disasters or bomb attacks). Not close to a public area (for security consideration). 2.3 When designing and building a facility, the following items should be considered: Wall - fire rating (level of fire protection and combustibility), load (the maximum weight it can hold), floor to ceiling barrier, reinforcement for secured area. Partition considerations similar to those of wall, plus the requirement of extension above drop ceiling (if there is no extension, an intruder can lift the ceiling panels and climb above the partition). Door fire rating (should be equal to that of the surrounding walls), emergency marking, directional opening, resistance from being forced open, intrusion detection alarm, fail-soft vs fail-safe lock (i.e. lock that is unlocked or locked in a power outage), placement of doors. Window characteristics of windows material (opaque, translucent, transparent, shatterproof, bulletproof), intrusion detection alarm, placement of windows. Ceiling fire rating, load, waterproof (preventing water leakage from the upper floor), drop ceiling. Floor fire rating, load, raised floor, electrical grounding (for raised floor), nonconducting material. Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) independent power source, positive air pressure (i.e. air will flow out of a room when the door is open, which can avoid contamination of the room), protected intake vents to prevent tampering, monitoring of environmental condition, emergency power off, placement of HVAC
3 CISSP Exam Notes - Physical Security 3 system. Power supplies backup power supply, clean power supply, circuit breaker, access to power distribution panels, placement of power sockets. Liquid and gas line shutoff valve, positive flow (i.e. liquid or gas should flow out of a building, not in), leakage sensor, placement of liquid and gas lines. Fire detection and suppression fire or smoke detector and alarm, sprinkler, gas discharge system, placement of detectors and sprinkler heads. Emergency lighting essential power supply and battery for emergency lighting. 2.4 In general, a wall should have 1-hour fireproof rating. For data center or room which stores paper document, magnetic media, etc., the walls should have a minimum of 2-hour fireproof rating. 3. Perimeter Security 3.1 Perimeter security controls are used to prevent unauthorized access to a facility. They deal with access control, auditing and monitoring; intrusion detection and response. 3.2 The perimeter security requirements when a facility is in operation should be different from those when the facility is closed. Access Control and Auditing 3.3 Physical access control mechanisms include: Lock and key. Access card and reader. Fence. Lighting. Doorway and Man-trap. 3.4 Lock and key is the most inexpensive physical access control mechanism. It is a deterrent and delaying device to intruders. There are several types of locks as follows: Preset lock Typical door lock, which needs to be replaced if the key needs to be changed. Programmable lock or Cipher lock Lock with key pad which requires a combination of keys to open the lock, or lock with reader which requires an access card to open the lock. It may have special options such as: Hostage alarm (support a key combination to trigger an alarm).
4 CISSP Exam Notes - Physical Security 4 Master-keying (support key combinations to change the access code and configure the functions of the lock). Key-override (support key combinations to override the usual procedures). Device lock (for locking a device rather than for perimeter security): Slot lock secure a device to a stationary component (e.g. steel cable with lock). Cable trap secure a peripheral by locking its cable to a stationary component. Power switch lock lock the on/off power switch of a device (e.g. key-switch). 3.5 A fail-soft lock is unlocked in a power interruption. A fail-safe (or fail-secure) lock is locked in a power interruption. 3.6 Access card and reader can also be used as an access control mechanism (details can be found in Chapter 5). 3.7 Fence is another physical access control mechanism. Fences of different heights can serve different purposes: 3 4 feet deter casual trespassers. 6 7 feet deter general intruders. 8 feet with strands of barbed wire (slant at a 45 o angle) deter more determined intruders. 3.8 Perimeter intrusion and detection assessment system (PIDAS) is a fencing system with mesh wire and passive cable vibration sensors that can detect if an intruder is approaching and damaging the fence. However, it may generate many false alarms. 3.9 Bollards are small and round concrete pillars that are constructed and placed around a building to protect it from being damaged by someone running a vehicle into the side of the building Lighting (e.g. streetlight, floodlight and searchlight) is a good deterrent for unauthorized access. It can also provide safety for personnel. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standard requires critical areas to be illuminated 8 feet in height with 2-foot candle power Doors to secured areas should have the following characteristics: Have similar appearance as the other doors to avoid catching the attention of intruders. Be self-closing and have no hold-open feature. Trigger alarms if they are forcibly opened or have been held open for a long period
5 CISSP Exam Notes - Physical Security 5 of time (door delay trigger). Use fail-secure locks, if necessary A man-trap is an area with double doors. There is a security guard or another mechanism to identify and authenticate an individual before opening the second door. This control can solve the piggybacking problem of access control (one following another closely through a door) Visitor access to restricted areas requires special security controls such as visitor registration and escort An audit trail should be maintained for every entrance of a restricted area. It can be used for auditing whether the access controls are properly enforced, and for incident investigation after an incident happens. It should contain the following information for every access attempt: Timestamp of the access attempt. User name. Result of the access attempt (successful or unsuccessful). Departure time of the user For mobile devices, laptops, or similar equipment that cannot be protected by the perimeter security controls, other security measures (e.g. device lock and data encryption) and user responsibilities become more important. Access Monitoring and Intrusion Detection 3.16 Physical access monitoring controls include patrol force, security guards and dogs Patrol force / security guard is a good deterrent to intrusion and can provide flexible security and safety response, but it has the following drawbacks: It is expensive. The reliability of security guards is an issue. Pre-employment screening and other background checking are required. Human is subject to social engineering. Training against social engineering is required Dogs are very effective in detecting intruders and other exceptions because they have good sight, hearing and smelling capabilities. Moreover, they are loyal, intelligent, and can be trained to recognize specific smells, e.g. smoke.
6 CISSP Exam Notes - Physical Security Technical access monitoring controls include: Dry contact switch uses metallic foil tape as a contact detector to detect whether a door or window is opened. Electro-mechanical detection system detects a change or break in a circuit. It can be used as a contact detector to detect whether a door or window is opened. Vibration detection system detects movement on walls, ceiling, floors, etc., by vibration. Pressure mat detects whether there is someone stepping on the mat. Visual recording device, e.g. camera and Closed Circuit TV (CCTV), records the activities taking place in a particular area. It should be used together with security guards to detect for anomalies. Photoelectric or photometric detection system emits a beam of light and monitors the beam to detect for motion and break-in. Wave pattern motion detector generates microwave or ultrasonic wave, and monitors the emitted wave to detect for motion. Passive infrared detection system detects for changes of heat wave generated by an intruder. Audio or Acoustical-seismic detection system listens for changes in noise level. Proximity detector or capacitance detector emits magnetic field and monitors the field to detect for any interruption. It is especially useful for protecting specific objects There are several types of alarm systems: Local system The alarm system only rings locally. Central station system Alarms (and CCTV) are monitored by a central station. The central station should be located within 10-minute travel time from the customer site. Proprietary system Similar to a central station system except that the monitoring facilities are owned and operated by the customer. Auxiliary system The alarm system rings local fire station and/or police station. Many central station systems have this feature Other issues related to intrusion detection and alarm systems are: An intrusion detection system may generate a lot of false alarms. For simplicity, different detectors (e.g. intrusion, fire, water, etc.) should be connected to a central alarm system rather than using multiple alarm systems. An alarm system should have emergency backup power supply to prevent intruders from disabling the system by cutting the normal power supply.
7 CISSP Exam Notes - Physical Security 7 An alarm system and the signal transmission medium should be monitored to detect for tampering. An alarm should be audible for at least 400 feet. An alarm requires a security guard to respond to locally. 4. Fire Protection Combustion Elements and Fire Types 4.1 Combustion elements which can sustain a fire are: Fuel, e.g. wood, paper, wiring, etc. (can be suppressed by CO 2 or Soda acid). Oxygen (can be suppressed by CO 2 or Soda acid). Temperature (can be reduced by water). Chemical (can be suppressed by Halon, which interferes with the chemical reaction). 4.2 There are four types of fire: Class Description Element of fire Suppression method A Common Miscellaneous, e.g. wood, Water, Soda acid combustibles paper, etc. B Liquid Petroleum products, Halon, CO 2, Soda acid coolants, etc. C Electrical Electrical equipment, wires, Halon, CO 2 etc. D Combustible metal Magnesium, sodium, etc. Dry powder 4.3 The flash point is the lowest temperature at which a Class B fire will continue to burn. Fire Detection 4.4 There are several types of fire detectors: Heat detector, which is based on a temperature threshold or the rising rate of temperature. Flame detector, which detects infra-red energy or pulse of flame (expensive but fast response). Smoke or Combustion particle detector, which emits a light beam and uses a photoelectric device to detect if the beam is obstructed. 4.5 Fire detectors and alarms should be installed with the following considerations: Fire detectors should be installed above ceiling, below raised floor (where wires can
8 CISSP Exam Notes - Physical Security 8 start an electrical fire), and in air vents (where smoke spreads). A fire alarm system should be configured to dial-up to a fire station and police station automatically. If a fire alarm will trigger automatic system shutdown, there should be a warning before the shutdown, and there should be some methods to override the shutdown. There should be some manual methods to trigger a fire alarm. Fire Suppression 4.6 A heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system has to be stopped automatically (e.g. by connecting it to the fire alarm system) when there is a fire because it can supply oxygen to the fire and spread smoke to the other areas. 4.7 A portable fire extinguisher should be used with the following considerations: It should have marking which indicates the type of fire it is designed for. Most portable fire extinguishers are filled with CO 2 or Soda acid. It should be placed within 50 feet of electrical equipment or at an exit. It should be easily reached and can be operated by an average-sized person. It should be inspected by licensed personnel regularly, e.g. quarterly. 4.8 A gas discharge system uses pressurized gas, e.g. CO 2 or Halon, to extinguish a fire. It is recommended for unmanned computer facilities, as the gas will not damage computer equipment, but may be dangerous to people. In a manned area, a gas discharge system should have built-in delay (after the fire alarm is triggered) before releasing gas, so that people have enough time to evacuate. 4.9 CO 2 is colorless, odorless and can cause suffocation. It is more suitable for unattended facilities Halon is harmless to people in small quantity. It should be used with 5% concentration. If the concentration is above 10%, it can be dangerous to people. It can also deplete ozone. In an extremely hot fire (> 900 o C), it will even degrade into toxic chemicals. Because of these problems, it is no longer manufactured since 1994 by international agreement. Extinguishers using Halon are not allowed to be refilled. However, it is not necessary to replace them immediately Halon 1211 is a liquid agent used mainly in portable extinguishers. Halon 1301 is a gas agent used mainly in flooding systems. Halon 1301 requires sophisticated pressurization.
9 CISSP Exam Notes - Physical Security FM-200 is a common replacement for Halon. FM-200 should be used with 7% concentration. Other replacements for Halon include Argon, Inergen, CEA-410, FE-13 and NAF-S-III A water sprinkler system is an inexpensive fire suppression mechanism. There are four main types of water sprinkler systems. They are: 1. Wet pipe system (or Closed head system) All the pipes are filled with water. When the temperature increases above a certain threshold, the links melt and water is released from the sprinkler heads. Water in the pipes may freeze in cold area, which may break the pipes. 2. Dry pipe system All the pipes are filled with air under pressure, and water is held back by valves. If a fire is detected, water will fill the pipes and then begin to sprinkle. During the time delay when water is filling the pipes, someone can shut down the sprinkler system, if necessary (e.g. for false alarm). It is suitable for cold climate. It does not react as fast as the wet pipe system. 3. Pre-action system Water is not held in the pipes in normal situation. When the temperature exceeds a certain threshold, water is released into the pipes, but is not yet released from the sprinkler heads until the links melt (combine the wet pipe system and dry pipe systems). It is designed for equipment that is costly such that water damage should be avoided in a small fire (leaving it to hand-held fire extinguisher). It is suitable for data processing environment. 4. Deluge system It is similar to the dry pipe system except that all the sprinkler heads are opened, so that a larger volume of water can be released over a large area in a short period of time. It is not suitable for data processing environment A water sprinkler system should be used with the following considerations: Water can increase the fire intensity in an electrical fire. Therefore, electrical power should be shut down automatically (e.g. by connecting it to the fire alarm system) before water is discharged from the sprinkler heads. Each sprinkler head should be activated individually to avoid wide-area water damage.
10 CISSP Exam Notes - Physical Security Power Protection 5.1 Power protection controls include: Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) to protect against a short duration power failure. There are two types of UPS: Online UPS It is in continual use because the primary power source goes through it to the equipment. It uses AC line voltage to charge a bank of batteries. When the primary power source fails, an inverter in the UPS will change DC of the batteries into AC. Standby UPS It has sensors to detect for power failures. If there is a power failure, the load will be switched to the UPS. It stays inactive before a power failure, and takes more time than online UPS to provide power when the primary source fails. Backup power source to protect against a long duration power failure, e.g. motor generator, another electrical substation, etc. Voltage regulator and line conditioner to protect against unstable power supply. Proper grounding for all electrical devices to protect against short circuit and static electricity, e.g. by using 3-prong outlets. Cable shielding to avoid interference. Power line monitor to detect for changes in frequency and voltage amplitude. Emergency power off (EPO) switch to shut down the power quickly when required. Electrical cables should be placed away from powerful electrical motors and lighting to avoid electromagnetic interference. Electrical cables should be placed away from powerful electrical cables and fluorescent lighting to avoid radio frequency interference. 5.2 UPS has several attributes: Electrical load it can support (measured in kva). Length of time it can support. Speed of providing power when there is a power failure. Physical space it occupies. 5.3 UPS is designed for protection against a short duration power outage, or for providing enough time for system administrators to shut down the systems and equipment orderly. Backup power source such as motor generator is designed for protection against a long duration power outage.
11 CISSP Exam Notes - Physical Security UPS and backup power source should be tested periodically. 5.5 Clean power refers to stable power with no voltage fluctuation or interference. It is necessary for power-sensitive equipment. 5.6 Interference or noise is a random disturbance of power. There are two types of interference: Electromagnetic interference (EMI) created by the charge difference between the 3 electrical wires (hot, neutral and ground). induced by motors, lightning, etc. Radio frequency interference (RFI) created by the components of an electrical system, and electrical cables. created by fluorescent lighting, truck ignition, etc. 5.7 There are several types of electrical voltage fluctuations: Excess power Spike for momentary high, Surge for prolonged high. Power degradation Sag for momentary low, Brownout for prolonged low. Power loss Fault for momentary outage, Blackout for prolonged outage. 6. General Environmental Protection 6.1 A HVAC system is a control system which governs heating, ventilation and air conditioning. It can be used to control the temperature, humidity and contamination (e.g. dust, dirt, smoke, gas, etc.) of a facility. 6.2 The temperature of a data center should be maintained between o C or o F ( o C = 5 / 9 x ( o F 32) ). If the temperature is too low, it may cause mechanisms to slow down. If the temperature is too high, it may cause equipment damage. The temperature damaging points of different products are as follows: Magnetic media 38 o C or 100 o F Computer hardware 80 o C or 175 o F Paper products 175 o C or 350 o F 6.3 The relative humidity of a data center should be maintained between 40 60%. If the humidity is too low, there may be excessive static electricity. If the humidity is too high, there may be condensation and corrosion. The humidity can be monitored by a hygrometer.
12 CISSP Exam Notes - Physical Security To avoid contamination and to maintain air quality, a data center should use a closedloop re-circulating air conditioning system and maintain positive air pressure inside the center (i.e. when the door is open, air will not flow in the room because of the higher pressure inside). 6.5 Liquid and gas lines must have shut-off valves and leakage sensors. The lines should maintain positive flow (i.e. liquid or gas should flow out instead of flow in a building). 6.6 Static electricity can be prevented by using anti-static floor, anti-static carpet (or not use carpet) and anti-static band. Proper humidity and grounding are also required. 7. Equipment Failure Protection 7.1 There are several types of controls for ensuring system availability: Hardware maintenance, with service level agreements (SLAs) with the maintenance service suppliers. Hardware redundancy, e.g. RAID disk, clustering, spare equipment. Regular backup of data and systems (Details can be found in Chapter 9). Alternate site or Disaster Recovery (DR) site (Details can be found in Chapter 10). 7.2 There are two important concepts when determining the requirement of controls for system availability: Mean-Time-Between-Failure (MTBF) expected time a device can function before failure. Mean-Time-To-Repair (MTTR) expected time required to repair a device. 7.3 Availability of disk storage can be increased by: Disk mirroring or shadowing Real-time duplication of data on a mirror disk. Disk duplexing Disk mirroring plus redundant disk controller. Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks (RAID). 7.4 Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks (RAID) makes use of redundant physical hard disks to increase the availability of a logical disk. There are several levels of RAID. The common RAID levels are listed below: Level 0 Stripping, i.e. a large logical disk which has data being divided and written over several physical disks. It can improve the logical disk performance, but has no redundancy. Failure of one physical disk will make the whole logical disk fails.
13 CISSP Exam Notes - Physical Security 13 Level 1 Disk mirroring, i.e. all data on a physical disk are duplicated to a mirror disk, and all modifications are made to the both disks simultaneously. Level 2 Stripping plus hamming code parity at bit level for redundancy (32 disks for storage and 7 disks for parity). This level is seldom used in the real world. Level 3 Byte level stripping plus parity (N data disks and 1 parity disk). Level 4 Block level stripping plus parity (N data disks and 1 parity disk). Level 5 Block level stripping plus interleaved parity, i.e. parity information is interleaved across all physical disks (N+1 disks). The logical disk performance is better than that of Levels 3 and 4 because of the distribution of parity information. It is the most widely used RAID level. Level 6 Block level stripping plus two sets of parity (N+2 disks). A logical disk can operate without data loss even if at most two physical disks failed. (For Levels 1-5, a logical disk can operate without data loss if at most one physical disk failed.) Level 10 Level 1 + Level 0, i.e. stripping across multiple RAID-1 disk pairs. Level 01 Level 0 + Level 1, i.e. 2 x RAID-0 disk groups, each disk group is a mirror of the other. Level 15 Level 1 + Level 5, i.e. stripping with interleaved parity across multiple RAID-1 disk pairs. Level 51 Level 5 + Level 1, i.e. 2 x RAID-5 disk groups, each disk group is a mirror of the other. 7.5 Most RAID systems support hot swapping disks, i.e. replacement of a failed hard disk and reconstruction of the contents of the failed disk onto a replacement disk while the system is running. 7.6 The RAID Advisory Board introduced the concept of Extended Data Availability and Protection (EDAP) in 1997, which is a classification system for the resilience of an entire storage system rather than just a disk-based storage as in the RAID classification. The classification system contains the following classes: FRDS (failure-resistant disk system): 1. Protection against data loss and loss of access due to disk failure. 2. Ability to reconstruct the failed disk contents onto a replacement disk. 3. Protection against data loss due to the failure of a system component. 4. Active component monitoring and failure indication. FRDS+: 5. Features Hot swapping. 7. Protection against data loss due to cache, power and other environmental
14 CISSP Exam Notes - Physical Security 14 failures. FTDS (failure-tolerant disk system): 8. Features Protection against loss of access due to device channel and controller failure. FTDS+: 10. Features Protection against loss of access due to bus and power failure, and component replacement. FTDS++: 12. Features Protection against data loss and loss of access due to multiple disk failures. DTDS (disaster-tolerant disk system): 14. Features Protection against data loss due to complete failure of one zone (distance between two zones > 1 km). DTDS+: 16. Features Protection against data loss due to complete failure of one zone (distance between two zones > 10 km). 7.7 A Storage Area Network (SAN) is composed of storage systems and servers connected by switching fabric, such that multiple servers can share the same storage systems. Redundancy and fault tolerance can be built into the switching fabric to increase the availability of access to the storage systems. 7.8 Fault tolerance means that a system can detect if there is a fault and can correct it or work around it automatically. 7.9 Clustering is a fault tolerant server technology. A group of servers working together as a logical unit to provide load balancing, redundancy and fail-over functions. If any one server fails, the other servers will pick up the load of the failed server.
