Securing an IP SAN

SANs deliver the capability for any server to access any storage device. Though this is extremely powerful and cost effective, it is obvious that security measures must be in place to prevent illegal access to data and to prevent accidental corruption or loss of data. Networked storage can introduce security vulnerabilities. To counter these weaknesses, it is important to adopt storage-specific security policies and practices.
