Security checklist for Cisco routers
Next is to discuss the Cisco security checklist. Of course, the first thing you have to do is login to the system as described above. If so, continue the steps below:
Change Cisco Default Login and Password
Since network security is so important, the first and foremost task is to change the Cisco router’s Default Login and Password to something more private and secure.
Router Password Tips:
- Choose a complex, hard-to-guess password for your Cisco that only you can remember
It should be something private, like &ilosmyvirginity@30, so you never forget it. Once
- Protect it
The amount of protection directly depends on the complexity of the password, and the effort made to password protect your Cisco router
- Main uses
Provide a Password for your Cisco router that you can remember (usability first). Of course, you can create strong hashed passwords with special characters, numbers, greek and latin. But in the end you will write it on sticky and put it on the router which defeats its purpose. This is an example of Asdqawsed123!@#
Change Cisco DPC3828S Default WiFi Name (SSID) and WiFi Password and enable Network Encryption
Another small suggestion (since it has no impact on security), is to change the Default WiFi name (SSID) as it will make it clearer for others to know which network they are connecting to.
Look for Network Name (SSID), this is the name of your Cisco WiFi Router. Do not use your name, home address or other personal information in the SSID name.
After you enter a name for your network, you must enable WPA2-PSK encryption on your Cisco router. It is the strongest encryption standard available for home networks.
Enter a new WPA Pre-Shared Key / WiFi Password – this is the password you will use to connect to your home WiFi. Save 16-20 characters and remember! don’t use the same password you use to login Cisco routers!
Update router firmware on Cisco DPC3828S and enable Automatic Updates
Router software often contains critical bugs and security vulnerabilities; so it is important that you enable Automatic Firmware update and keep your Cisco DPC3828S router up to date. To enable Automatic updates, Log in to your Cisco DPC3828S router and look for the section containing Automatic updates and turn it “ON”
And even if the router has automatic updates, check every now and then to make sure it’s actually working, and the router’s firmware is up-to-date.
Security Is An Ongoing Process
Remember to change passwords frequently or at least once in 6 months! on your Cisco DPC3828S You don’t want your hard-earned safety to fail just because of ignorance, negligence, or plain laziness!
