Tracking Network Device Issues with NIMI

User documentation

The purpose of this document is to detail the requirements for tracking network device issues in NIMI.

Computer system vulnerabilities are software flaws that can be exploited over a network. Computer
systems that have been compromised may try to infect other systems or provide resources to unauthorized users. This document proposes a structure for tracking computer system vulnerabilities and compromises. Computer system vulnerabilities and compromises are called issues in this document. An important part of managing computer issues is notification. Individual system administrators are notified of issues found for the systems they manage. They are informed when network blocks affect their systems. Network block notification is made when network blocks are installed and lifted. The Data Communication group is notified when network blocks are needed, and when existing blocks can be removed.
