Restrict access to the LEM reports application

Updated: September 15, 2017

This topic documents how to secure the LEM reports application so that only authorized users can access it.

Understand your options for securing LEM reports

LEM allows unrestricted access to the LEM reports application by default. The following options are available to limit who can access the reports application:

  • Access can be restricted to specific computers.
  • Access can be restricted by port number. The reports application communicates over port 9001. You can restrict access to this port the same way that you can restrict SSH access to LEM on port 32022, or LEM console access on ports 8443/8080.
  • The LEM reports application can be configured to require a user name and password.
     

To encrypt communication between the LEM reports application and the LEM database, see Enable transport layer security (TLS) in the LEM reports application.

Restrict access to LEM reports to specific computers

  1. Open the CMC command line. See Log in to the LEM CMC command line interface for steps.

  2. At the cmc> prompt, type service.

  3. At the cmc::service> prompt, type restrictreports.

  4. When prompted, press the Enter key.

  5. Enter the IP addresses of the computers that you want to allow to run the LEM reports application, separated by spaces.

    Ensure that the list you provide is complete. Your entry will override any previous entries.

  6. Type y to confirm your entry.

  7. Type exit to return to the cmc> prompt.

  8. Type exit to log out of the CMC command line.

Remove all LEM reports access restrictions

  1. Open the CMC command line. See Log in to the LEM CMC command line interface for steps.

  2. At the cmc> prompt, type service.

  3. At the cmc::service> prompt, type unrestrictreports.

  4. When prompted, press the Enter key.

    Removing LEM reports restrictions will make the LEM database accessible to any computer on your network that is running the LEM reports application.

  5. Type exit and press Enter to return to the cmc> prompt.
  6. Type exit and press Enter to log out of the CMC command line.
