This IBM Redpaper provides guidelines for the secure configuration of IBM System Storage N series running Network Appliance Data ONTAP. It is intended for storage and security administrators that wish to improve the overall security posture of their storage networks. For each configuration area, we provide only the most secure settings.

The second part of this IBM Redpaper provides a high-level discussion of Data ONTAP security concepts in the context of a documentation map. Security administrators should be able to use this map to develop a good working knowledge of Data ONTAP security even if they have no previous storage management experience.
