Executive Summary

IT infrastructures just needs to work and at the same time adapt to changing requirements. A significant amount of their downtime is caused by configuration errors and because all other subsystems depend on the network, network errors there have a big impact. Configuration errors are often caused by parameters that are inconsistent because changing one parameter often requires updating multiple other parameters. The configuration of a network is mostly determined by the physical connections and by the subsystems that use the network. Therefore a lot of configuration parameters are derived from other parameters, which increases the risk of inconsistencies. In this paper, the authors present ISIM, a configuration tool for managing a network and its security devices.
