The Infoprint 1585 contains several standard and optional features and functions that improve or enhance the security of the device.
Secure Management with MarkVision Professional
Using the latest version of MarkVision Professional, administrators can configure and manage the Infoprint 1585 securely by using authenticated and encrypted network communications.
Secure Network Communications
The Infoprint 1585 contains support for several network protocols that increase the security of network communications.
The addition of the SSL protocol allows for secure connections to the embedded web server in the device, which protects configuration and device status messages. SSL also provides the ability to perform secure Pull Printing.
SNMPv3 support allows for encrypted and authenticated management traffic, protecting remote configuration and device status messages.
IPSec (Internet Protocol Security) can be used with both IPv4 and IPv6 networks. IPSec provides encryption and authentication of communications at the network layer.
Security Lockdown - When the adapter password has been set, an administrator can put the printer into "Security Lockdown" mode, where all insecure TCP and UDP ports are disabled (discovery and print ports remain open). TCP and UDP port numbers may also be closed individually.
Using Confidential Print, a user may assign a PIN to a print job, and have the printer hold that job until the user physically arrives and enters the correct PIN. This will prevent another user from taking the printed output from the output bin.
Several enhancements have been added to Confidential Print with the release of this and concurrent models:
Job Expiration - An administrator can now configure the printer to automatically delete Confidential Print jobs after a specified amount of printer uptime. This time limit can be set to the following options: 1 hour, 4 hours, 24 hours, or 1 week.
Increased PIN Digit Support - PIN numbers can now consist of four numbers between 0-9, providing 10,000 possible PIN combinations. Previous models supported four numbers from 1-6, with 1296 possible PIN combinations.
Maximum Invalid PIN Attempts - An administrator can now configure the printer to automatically delete a Confidential Print job if the incorrect PIN number has been entered a specified number of times. This can be set to be between 2 and 10 invalid PIN attempts.
Digitally Signed Firmware Update Files
Upgraded firmware files from IBM are now signed with a digital signature, which verifies the source and authenticity of the updated code. This prevents a malicious user from creating and uploading to the printer custom code that could intercept and expose potential confidential data.
Encryption for Optional Internal Hard Disk Drives
When equipped with an optional internal hard disk drive, a printer could potentially store print job data, thus providing an avenue for a malicious user to retrieve the data. When "Disk Encryption" is enabled, a 128 bit encryption key is randomly generated and then used to encrypt all the data on the hard drive using the AES algorithm. This encryption key is unique to the printer that created it, therefore an encrypted hard drive could not be placed into another device and the data subsequently retrieved.
Operator Panel Menu Lockout
An administrator may apply a PIN number to protect the administration menus available through the printer operator panel. The following top-level menus can be protected using this feature:
When a hard disk is installed in the printer, the user has the option of locking the print device with a user defined PIN and preventing it from printing submitted jobs. All submitted print jobs will be stored on the internal hard drive until the printer is unlocked with the correct PIN. This feature will be especially useful in preventing printing after normal business hours. This feature is set up through the printer's embedded web server and is enabled from the printer's operator panel. It is not supported through MarkVision Professional.
Note: Disk Encryption should also be enabled when using this feature to ensure that the data is stored securely in the event that the drive is removed to defeat Printing Lockout.
IBM Infoprint Manager
Infoprint Manager support: Yes (post GA). Requires administrators to create printer objects.

Hole Punch Unit 2/3H 2/4H
Offset stacking of 15 mm (0.6 in.) can be set in the printer for job or copy boundary. When multiple copies are selected in certain applications or operating environments, the document is sent multiple times to the printer and would be treated as separate print jobs.
(P/N 39V0946) 2/4-Hole Finisher
This finisher is the same as the finisher described above except it supports 2/4 hole punching.
(P/N 75P6954) Card for IPDS and SCS/TNe Feature
This feature is installed in the flash memory/applications solutions slots.
The Card for IPDS and SCS/TNe provides AFP/IPDS and SCS (LU1) data stream support for IBM servers. The Card for IPDS and SCS/TNe allows customers to print AFP/IPDS or SCS(LU1) documents over TCP/IP to LAN printers
IPDS is only supported for Single Byte Character Set and does not support Double Byte Character Set.
For IPDS emulation printing, the capture of outline fonts (LF3) is now supported.
These affordable Cards for IPDS and SCS/TNe provide configuration flexibility and compatibility for AFP/IPDS or SCS printing over TCP/IP to LAN printers. These Cards for IPDS and SCS/TNe are compatible with IBM mainframe or IBM iSeries applications that generate SCS (LU1) output or with applications that output AFP/IPDS through Print Services Facility (PSF).
IBM continues to make it easy for IS/IT managers to have an affordable printing solution in a distributed network or on a LAN for applications or software that generate AFP/IPDS or SCS. This includes:
PDF417 2D bar code, Data Matrix, MaxiCode 2D bar code support, QR code 2D barcode
Using AFP/IPDS and PSF, capture fonts to hard disk or to flash memory resulting in reduced network traffic over LAN, coaxial or twinaxial connections.
Supports TN3270E or TN5250E SCS (LU1) over the LAN using TCP/IP with Telnet.
No changes to host applications.
Supports emulation of common IBM IPDS and SCS printers.
Additional or new remote controllers with twinax or coax cabling are unnecessary. However, twinax and coax connections continue to be available using the Coax/Twinax Adapter for SCS.
One LAN printer can print LAN (PostScript, PCL, etc) and mainframe or iSeries documents (AFP/IPDS, SCS).
With a card and the standard Ethernet network port or a MarkNet print server using TCP/IP, the printer becomes an IBM host workstation printer capable of printing AFP/IPDS or SCS documents from an iSeries or System/390 computer.
With the appropriate host software and one of these options, the IBM printer emulates an IBM mainframe or iSeries host printer. See the compatibility section for details.
With the TN3270E and TN5250E extended Telnet protocol support in these options, the printer emulates one TN3270E printer session and up to 4 TN5250E printer sessions using the LU1 SCS data stream over TCP/IP. This is supported directly from an iSeries or from a mainframe using TCP/IP or through any TN3270E capable gateway that supports TN3270E according to RFC 2355. The DSC/DSE or SCS data streams over LU3 or LU0 are not supported. The Telnet protocol function is only supported with through the standard Ethernet network port or with the MarkNet N2000 print servers. See the compatibility section for more details.
For IPDS emulation, the card supports resident scalable fonts and 300, 600, 1200 image quality or 1200 dpi print resolutions. The resolution is selected through an IPDS MENU setting. This setting determines the print resolution of IPDS text, graphics, bar code, scalable image and scalable font data.
The printer can be configured to take advantage of additional RAM, and when attached to a LAN through the standard Ethernet port or a MarkNet print server, can save IPDS resources to improve performance for complex IPDS print jobs with host resources such as fonts, overlays or page segments.
The IPDS emulation supports the IPDS data and resource towers. SBCS fonts can now be downloaded, captured and saved to hard disk or flash memory in the printer. The US Postal Bar code POSTNET font and the Euro currency symbol are supported within IPDS.
The Euro currency symbol is also supported for the SCS, PostScript and PCL 6 emulations.
AFP/IPDS Font and Typestyle Support:
The Card for IPDS supports resident scalable fonts. The font complement with 12 typestyles supports the IBM Font Collection (Core Int erchange Scalable Font Sets - Courier, Times New Roman and Helvetica faces).
The following languages are supported:
Latin 1: Afrikaans, Belgian (French and Dutch), Brazilian Portuguese, Canadian English, Canadian French, Catalan, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Icelandic, Italian, Latin American Spanish, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish (Castillian), Swedish, Swiss (German, French and Italian), United Kingdom English, United States English
Latin 2/ROECE: Albanian, Croatian, Czech, East German, Hungarian, Polish, Romanian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian
Latin 3, 4, 5 and 6: Maltese, Turkish, Estonian, Greenlandic, Lappish, Latvian, Lithuanian
Cyrillic for: Bulgarian, Byelorussian, Macedonian, Russian, Serbo-Croatian, Ukrainian.
The font complement for the IBM Coordinated Scalable Font Set provides support for Latin 1 languages in 3 Letter Gothic (medium, bold and italic) and 3 Prestige (medium, bold and italic) scalable typestyles. Scalable OCR-A and OCR-B typestyles are supported.
The following fonts are supported using bitmaps: APL 12, Boldface PS, Boldface Italic PS, OCR-A 10, OCR-B 10 and Prestige PS. The OCR bitmap fonts have different FGIDs than the scalable font versions.
The IBM 4028 Compatibility Font set consists of 22 fixed pitch typestyles supported by bitmap fonts. Times Roman typestyles (13) are created from Times New Roman scalable typestyles of the same weight and style.
The IBM 3812/3816 Compatibility Font set consists of 35 typestyles supported by bitmap fonts at 240 dpi.
Fonts can also be captured dynamically and saved (cached) to hard disk or flash memory in the printer. A captured font then appears as a printer resident font. If many fonts are used in the jobs that are printed, capturing fonts and saving them in the printer will decrease network traffic on busy networks.
PSF defines fonts as either public or private. In order to capture a font, it must be marked as eligible and public. A private font is not eligible to be captured.
Note: Do not mark sensitive fonts such as signatures and MICR fonts as eligible to be captured. Check the font licensing information before a font is made eligible for capture.
If a font is to be captured, the appropriate files for the coded font or character set and code page resources must all be marked.
The printer must also be defined as capable to capture fonts in PSF. For bitmap fonts, the font resolution of the font captured must match the resolution of the emulated printer for it to be recognized by the printer as a printer resident font. For example, the IBM 3812 and 3816 printer emulations require 240 dpi fonts. The IBM 4028 printer emulation requires 300 dpi fonts.
On the iSeries, Font capture is supported by OS/400 V5R1 or later. To define the printer as capable to capture, in the PSF configuration (CRTPSFCFG/CHGPSFCFG), set FNTCAPTURE (*YES).
Eligible fonts must be marked. Display the font attributes to identify marked fonts (DSPFNTRSCA). Verify that *YES is specified for the Font Capture attribute. Use Create Font Resource (CRTFNTRSC) to mark font resources from other systems. Use Change Font Resource (CHGFNTRSC) to mark fonts that are not marked as eligible.
For a font to be eligible for capture, it must have non zero fields for FGID and GCSGID. Any fonts captured and saved in the printer's hard disk or flash memory are saved across instances of the writer.
Mainframe (OS/390 or z/OS)
Font capture is supported by PSF for OS/390 or z/OS. Use APSRMARK to mark eligible fonts if they are not already marked. The IBM Font Collection fonts are already marked as eligible for capture.
SCS Font and Typestyle Support
The SCS emulation uses the default resolution set using the Quality menu from the printer's operator panel. The SCS emulation in the card uses PCL fonts from the printer firmware. If the printer is set to 600 dpi, then all SCS data is printed with 600 dpi PCL fonts. It is possible to imbed PCL and PJL commands into the SCS data stream and pass them to the printer utilizing ASCII transparency.
On the iSeries, fonts can be selected by specifying the FGID (Font Global Identifier) or by characters per inch (CPI). With IBM mainframes, only CPI font selection is possible.
A parameter in the SCS data stream (Final Form Text (Level 2) Document Content Architecture (FFT (L2) DCA)) Page Presentation media (PPM) command is used to control Duplex printing.
These 6 fonts are included in SCS emulation as 300 dpi bitmap fonts: OCR-B (3), Boldface Italic (155), Boldface (159), Essay (160), Essay Bold (163) and Document (175).
For the Card for IPDS and SCS/TNe, IPDS is supported under the IPDS MENU settings and SCS is supported under the SCS/TNe MENU settings.
Microcode updates and User's Guides are available from the IBM web site.
See the appropriate User's Guide for configuration instructions.
When the printer is emulating an IBM printer, the function supported depends on the IBM host software.
