Details of Requirements for Network Vulnerability Assessment and Network Performance Analysis - Audit
Annexure – I: Details of Requirements for Network Vulnerability Assessment and Network Performance Analysis - Audit
This document outlines the requirement for Network Vulnerability Assessment and Network Performance Analysis - Audit. The goal of the project is two-fold:
? Assess all security vulnerabilities of the INFINET network and recommend solutions for identified vulnerabilities
? Assess INFINET’s ability to meet the performance requirements related to traffic and transactions carried over it and to recommend solutions for improving the performance
Information assurance is an integral part of the IDRBT ’s mission. Our challenge is to make needed services available to authorized users concurrently with minimizing both the amount of information we disclose to others as well as minimizing the attack profile we present to others. The current level of security can be identified by assessing the performance, identifying the vulnerabilities & then developing appropriate steps for mitigation.
Statement of purpose
IDRBT invites suitably qualified vendor to submit proposals for Network Vulnerability Assessment and Network Performance Analysis - Audit.
This document, with all information disclosed, is given in confidence. Any part of this document shall not be disclosed to a third party other than the personnel involved in the preparation of the response, except for necessary inquires for information from vendor.
IDRBT reserves the right to accept or reject any of the submitted responses. IDRBT also has the right to use any of the ideas and information submitted without incurring any liability. IDRBT is not obligated to pay any costs incurred during the preparation of the response. Furthermore this RFP does not commit IDRBT to make an offer or award a contract. IDRBT may reward contract fully or partially to vendors.

The scope of this project is Network Vulnerability Assessment and Network Performance Analysis – Audit of INFINET Network.
The target environment consists of the network and systems of INFINET Network.
The INFINET, an acronym for the INdian FInancial Network, uses a blend of communication technologies such as VSATs and Terrestrial Leased Lines. The HUB of the VSAT network is situated at IDRBT, and consists of an 11-metre antenna and other satellite earth station equipments.
The INFINET is a Closed User Group [CUG] Network for the exclusive use of Member Banks and Financial Institutions. Presently, the network consists of over 2000 VSATs located in 300 cities of the country and utilizes one full transponder of 36 MHz on INSAT 3B.
The INFINET is primarily a TCP/IP based network. A detailed IP addressing scheme has been devised by IDRBT for all CUG members, which has to be strictly followed by all CUG members, while interacting via the communication backbone.
Initially IDRBT would like to carry out Network Vulnerability Assessment and Network Performance Analysis for the following locations:
