HP LaserJet Enterprise M4555 MFP Series - Product security features

Security statements

The product supports security standards and recommended protocols that help you keep the product secure, protect critical information on your network, and simplify the way you monitor and maintain the product.
For in-depth information about HP's secure imaging and printing solutions, visit www.hp.com/go/secureprinting. The site provides links to white papers and FAQ documents about security features.

IP Security

IP Security (IPsec) is a set of protocols that control IP-based network traffic to and from the product. IPsec provides host-to-host authentication, data integrity, and encryption of network communications.
For products that are connected to the network and have an HP Jetdirect print server, you can configure IPsec by using the Networking tab in the HP Embedded Web Server.

Secure the HP Embedded Web Server

Assign an administrator password for access to the product and the HP Embedded Web Server so that unauthorized users cannot change the product settings.
  1. Open the HP Embedded Web Server by entering the product IP address into the address line of a Web browser.
  2. Click the Security tab.
  3. Open the General Security menu.
  4. In the Username field, type the name to associate with the password.
  5. Type the password in the New Password box, and type it again in the Verify password box.
    If you are changing an existing password, you must first type the existing password in the Old Password field.
  6. Click the Apply button. Make note of the password and store it in a safe place.

Encryption support: HP Encrypted High Performance Hard Disks

Some models include an encrypted hard disk. This hard disk provides hardware-based encryption so you can securely store sensitive print, copy, and scan data without impacting product performance. This hard disk uses the latest Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and has versatile time-saving features and robust functionality.
Use the Security menu in the HP Embedded Web Server to configure the disk.
For more information about the encrypted hard disk, see the HP High-Performance Secure Hard Disk Setup Guide.
  1. Type Secure Hard Disk into the search box and click the >> button.
  2. Click the HP Secure High Performance Hard Disk Drive link.
  3. Click the Manuals link.

Secure stored jobs

You can protect jobs that are stored on the product by assigning a PIN to them. Anyone who tries to print these protected jobs must first enter the PIN at the product control panel.

Lock the control panel menus

You can lock various features on the control panel by using the HP Embedded Web Server.
  1. Open the HP Embedded Web Server by entering the product IP address into the address line of a Web browser.
  2. Click the Security tab.
  3. Open the Access Control menu.
  4. In the Sign In and Permission Policies area, select which types of users have permission for each of the features.

Lock the formatter

The formatter area, on the back of the product, has a slot that you can use to attach a security cable. Locking the formatter prevents someone from removing valuable components from it.
