This paper is a response to the Canon White Paper: Canon imageRUNNER/imagePRESS
Security. This is a response from ANTS on what we are doing today and what we feel we need to investigate more.
When a setting is applicable to network printers it will be noted. It should be noted that some of the features cannot be accessed from the RUI (Remote User Interface) and must be done at the printer console.
Canon Security Recommendations Quick Reference
On page 19 of the white paper Canon Recommends the following.
The following actions are recommended by Canon as appropriate first steps in securing the Canon imageRUNNER or imagePRESS device for most environments. While these suggestions assist in enhancing device security, internal company security policies should ultimately dictate which security measures are appropriate for implementation within a specific environment.
- Set the system administrator ID and password
- Disable unused ports and applications (e.g. FTP, RUI)
- Set passwords for MailBoxes
- Restrict printing and RUI access to specific IP or MAC addresses
- Set passwords for Address Book management
- Change the SNMP community strings
- Disable the USB port if unused
- Utilize Optional Hard Disk Drive Erase Kit or Hard Disk Drive Encryption Kit to ensure integrity of data stored on internal imageRUNNER/imagePRESS Hard Disk Drives
- Enable and configure Department ID to manage user device access permissionson a departmental or user level
- Monitor the devices using imageWARE EMC

BLI editors had a chance to check out the latest offerings from a number of manufacturers in the wide-format arena represented across many of the halls at drupa 2012, the quadrennial print trade show that took place in early May in Düsseldorf, Germany. Enthusiastic product managers and sales reps eagerly discussed new ink colors, improvements in printhead design and the productivity enhancements of a great many newly-unveiled devices, as well as a few prototypes. BLI’s coverage primarily includes models in the 36- to 64-inch width range employing aqueous, latex or solvent inks, as well as two toner-based wide-format solutions.
Keen focus in Océ’s section of the Canon booth was on the Velocity, Océ’s high-volume color wide-format printer currently under development. The unit is the result of collaborative efforts between Océ engineering teams and Memjet, the printhead manufacturing company. According to Eelco Schillings, Océ business development manager, the 42-inch width four-color unit, which employs five Memjet printheads, is capable of printing up to 500 A0-size color documents in one hour at 1600-x-800-dpi. The Velocity supports up to six media rolls for a maximum output capacity of nearly 4,000 feet. Schillings stated that Océ will be offering beta-version models of the Velocity to existing customers in an effort to obtain critical feedback, and the company will determine if and when Velocity will move to the production phase based on that feedback, which they hope to have compiled by the second half of 2012. The recently-released Océ ColorWave 650, which utilizes the company’s CrystalPoint technology, was also busy churning out posters, maps and renderings during the show.
