Router Login Banner / Warning - NIST / CMMC / DFARS Compliance

Per NIST 800-171, NIST 800-53, and CMMC, Network devices such as routers are required to display a notice prior to logon that indicates the acceptable use and monitoring of the device. Lawsuits have been thrown out due to this not being in place and it presents a compliance issue.

  • Please create a text box in the configuration screen called “logon message” that can be filled out by the administrator and will display on the Peplink router login screen to allow us to comply with this requirement. SAMPLE message below.

You must have explicit, authorized permission to access or configure this device. Unauthorized attempts and actions to access or use this system may result in civil and/or criminal penalties. All activities performed on this device are logged and monitored.

Stealing Sams Thunder a little (sorry Sam) you can set a logon banner on the support.cgi page (replace index.cgi for support.cgi in the address bar once you have logged into the web interface).:
