Generic Requirements for Data Communication Network Security
Document Number GR-1332
Issue Number 02
Issue Date Apr 1996
Replaces TA-STS-001332 Issue01
ABSTRACT: This document provides the Telcordia view of generic security requirements for Local Exchange Carrier Data Communication Networks. The
proposed generic security requirements in this document are intended to apply to evolving networks and new technologies. New
technologies are prone to intrusions due to the nature of their being new and are, therefore, yet to be subjected to the test of time
and extensive use. The exploitation of new technology into existing and new network products that will eventually be integrated into
existing heterogeneous networks, forces their implementation to be "open" by being interoperable. This openness, frequently
coupled with inadequate security services makes them more vulnerable to intruders' attempts at subverting whatever security they may
Although these requirements are generic functional requirements for security, they are applicable as foundation baselines for a
variety of large network environments where security is expected and highly desired by users, e.g., X.25 Packet Networks, Local Area
Networks (LANs), and Synchronous Optical Networks (SONETs).
This GR provides baseline generic requirements from which requirements specific to a particular network may be derived. Specific
Local Area Network (LAN) requirements are also included.
GR-1332 replaced TA-STS-001332.
When using GR-1332, you may need to refer to GR-815. You may also want to refer to GR-1194.
