SECURITY BULLETIN: Export Domino Directory nested groups to Excel to fix vulnerabilities using tool


New York, NY – August 15, 2018 –
BP NotesMail, provider of Crucial Notes tools and Domino consulting services, now offers a new user interface and enhanced administration functionality for Notes and Domino. ACL Dominator is an administration reporting security tool which allows Domino Administrators to quickly identify performance and security issues in a Domino environment. Domino administrators can generate reports for Domino mailboxes, Domino web apps and Notes apps, then export to Excel. The reports can be run immediately or scheduled daily, weekly or monthly.

Cyber-attack, hacking and information warfare seems more than relevant in the news these days (i.e. WikiLeaks). Domino administrators are often at a loss when dealing with nested groups in the DD (Public NAB) which can be a real security concern. Nested groups seem to be difficult to troubleshoot in regards to ACL access and mailing lists. Prevent security breaches and secure your Domino mailboxes, Domino web apps and Notes apps with ACL Domnator. The nested groups are expanded in the Excel report.

Reports can be generated as seen below which assist a Domino administrator to fix security holes, optimize server performance and prepare for a messaging migration (i.e. mailbox delegation reports for SmartCloud Notes Hybrid, Verse, Office 365, G Suite).
  • Report, manage, analyze, audit, export, update all Access Control Lists (useful to fix security holes)
  • Advanced database properties report (useful to verify DBs are using latest Domino 9 compression / optimization)
  • Mailbox/DB document count report (useful to identify mailbox/DBs which require archiving)
  • Full Text Index reports (useful to optimize server performance by identifying non-critical mailbox/DBs using "Immediate" frequency which should ideally be changed to "Hourly" or "Daily)
  • Mailbox delegation reports (useful for messaging migrations)
  • Mailbox user activity reports (useful to identify mailboxes which can be retired)
  • Group troubleshooting (useful to identify mailbox/DB access issues using heavily nested groups)
  • Mailbox owner reports including changing owner ACL (useful to force mailbox access of all mailbox users to Editor) i.e. Specify "$$MailOwner" in tool when performing ACL updates
  • DAOS reports including Logical, Physical and DAOS size (useful to identify attachment consolidation space savings)

The ACL Dominator security tool is essential in today's world of cyberattack, hacking and information warfare.
