HP Jornada 430/430se Palm-size PC - Using HP Security

Introduction
This document explains security issues for the HP Jornada 430/430se Palm-size computer. Sections include how to use the Password, Activation, and Log tabs for various functions. Using HP backup and performing a full reset are also covered.
Using HP security
The HP security control panel has three tabs:
  • Password - Allows you to set a primary password and a reminder password. You use the reminder password if you forget your primary password.
  • Activation - Allows you to set a password delay timer.
  • Log - Allows you to log security events.
To start HP security
  1. Tap the Start button, tap Settings, and then tap HP security.
  2. If you have already enabled password protection, you need to enter your primary password to modify settings.
Using the Password tab to set your primary password
  1. Open HP security and tap the Password tab.
  2. Enter a Primary Password in the Password text box, and then enter the same password in the Confirm text box. Passwords can be 1 to 40 characters long.
  3. Tap the Enable Password Protection checkbox. You can also set a primary password with the Microsoft (R) Password feature (tap Start, tap Settings, and then tap Password).
    Figure : Password tab
If you forget your primary password, you can still unlock your HP Jornada 430/430se Palm-size computer with the reminder password. However, you cannot access the HP security Properties tab to reset your primary password.
If you forget your primary password, the ONLY way to reset it is to follow these steps:
  1. Perform a full backup either to the desktop computer or to a Compact Flash card using HP backup.
  2. Perform a full reset on your Palm-size computer.
  3. Restore the backup file to your Palm-size computer.
You can only backup to your desktop computer if you previously saved your password when connecting with ActiveSync. If you did not save your password, use HP backup to backup to a Compact Flash card. For information on full backups and restores, click here to see "Using HP backup". For information on performing a full reset, click here to see "Full reset.”
Using the Password tab to set a reminder password
  1. Open HP security and tap the Password tab.
  2. Enter any question in the Question text box, and then enter your answer in the Answer text box. The reminder question and answer can be 1 to 40 characters long. The answer is case-sensitive and can be enabled only if the primary password is enabled.
  3. Tap the Enable Reminder Password checkbox.
      note:
    If you forget your primary password, the only way to unlock your Palm-size computer is through the reminder password.
Using the Activation tab to set a password delay timer
  1. Open HP security and tap the Activation tab.
  2. Under Password Delay, tap the Delay Password activation checkbox, and then enter the number of minutes to delay. The minimum is 1 minute, and the maximum is 240 minutes.
  3. Under Reminder Password, enter the number of bad logon attempts that you want to allow. The minimum is 1 attempt, and the maximum is 20 attempts. You can modify this only if the reminder password is enabled.
Using the Log tab to enable logging
  1. Open HP security and tap the Log tab.
  2. Tap the Enable Logging checkbox.
To export a log file
  1. Open HP security and tap the Log tab.
  2. Select a log file, and then tap the Export Log button.
  3. Enter a file name. The Options button allows you to choose a location and file type. The Create In>> button allows you to choose or create a folder in which to store the file. By default, the file is stored in the My Documents folder.
To delete the log files
  1. Open HP security and tap the Log tab.
  2. Tap the Clear Log button.
About the log database
The following events are logged when logging is enabled:
  • Successful logon to HP security
  • Unsuccessful logon to HP security
  • Modification of HP security settings
  • Modification of the primary password
  • Expiration of the primary password during system logon
  • Modification of the primary password after logon with the reminder password during system logon
  • Successful authentication during system logon
  • Unsuccessful authentication during system logon
To prevent the log database from taking up too much storage space, the log database is limited to 550 records. Records are deleted on a first-in-first-out basis.
Using HP backup
HP backup provides a convenient way to back up data while traveling or while you are away from your desktop computer. You can back up the information to a CompactFlash Card for secure storage. You can also back up data to a folder on the HP Jornada 430/430se Palm-size computer. However, this does not preserve the information if you lose power or need to perform a full reset.
  note:
The backup file (.dbe or .dbb) is always placed in the My Documents directory. When saving to a CompactFlash Card, a My Documents directory is automatically created.
To back up data
  1. On the Start menu, tap Settings, and tap HP backup.
  2. Tap Backup, and then choose one of the backup options:
    • Select Backup all data to back up all information stored in random-access memory (RAM), including files you have created, programs you have installed, and any system settings and options you have set.
    • Select Backup PIM databases to back up only your Contacts, Tasks, and Calendar databases.
  3. Follow the instructions on your screen to complete the backup process.
To restore from a backup file
  1. On the Start menu, tap Settings, and tap HP backup.
  2. Tap Restore.
  3. Tap either "Restore all data" or "Restore PIM databases".
  4. Select the backup file you want to restore, and then tap OK.
      note:
    The HP Jornada 430/430se Palm-size computer must have the same regional settings when you restore as you had when you completed the backup. Otherwise, you cannot restore the files. To change regional settings, on the Start menu, tap Settings, and then tap Regional Settings.
Full reset
Perform a full reset only when the HP Jornada 430/430se Palm-size computer does not respond to a soft reset. A full reset erases all data you have entered, including all files, system settings, and programs you have installed. If you have forgotten your password, you also need to perform a full reset.
  note:
Performing a full reset erases all files, programs, and data you have entered. You can restore only data that has been backed up to your desktop computer or CompactFlash Card.
To perform a full reset
  1. Disconnect the AC adapter from the Palm-size computer.
  2. Remove the battery.
  3. Use the stylus to press the Reset button for at least 5 seconds.
  4. Reinsert the battery.
  5. Restore data to the Palm-size computer from your most recent backup file.
