With the Greece 11 software release, anti-tampering software is available that uses digital signatures to monitor sensitive user interface programs (OPUSClient UI, OPUSCharge UI) and OPUSite Web Services (Card Access, Credentials, Activation, and Revenue), along with their corresponding Web.Config and related files.
Note: Only Super Users can enable the the anti-tampering feature. For all other users, the
Enable Anti-Tampering checkbox is unavailable.
To enable the anti-tampering feature:
1. Launch OPUSClient UI and login as a Super User.
2. Navigate to Alerts > Alarms Configuration.
3. Check the
Enable Anti-Tampering checkbox.
Once enabled, the iParc Pro+ Parcs system will review the digital signatures of protected services and files every two hours to detect if unauthorized changes have been made. If the correct digital signature is not found, or if corresponding files have been altered, an alarm is displayed in the OPUSClient UI > Alarms > Active Alarms panel.
If a tamper alert indicates unauthorized changes, contact AMI Customer Support as soon as possible after viewing the alert.
Authorized changes that will generate tamper alerts include:
- Changes to, or upload of, a new Web.Config file.
- Software upgrades.
Authorized changes do not require contacting AMI Customer Support. A Super User or Administrator can login to OPUSClient UI and clear the alerts caused by authorized actions. Uncheck the
Enable Anti-Tampering checkbox, wait ten (10) seconds, then check the checkbox again. This will cause the anti-tampering feature to accept the authorized changes to files and software upgrades.
