Title: Configuration Management


1
Configuration Management
  • Supplement 67

Robert Horn, Agfa Healthcare
2
Configuration Management
  • The Problem being solved
  • Use Cases
  • Sup. 67 DICOM Configuration Management

3
The Problem Being Solved
  • Installation of DICOM equipment
  • Takes too long
  • Requires too much effort
  • Requires time consuming, multi-vendor
    coordination
  • Involves too many mistakes
  • Upgrading and repairing DICOM equipment
  • Requires too much service effort for
    configuration tasks that are unrelated to the
    problem being solved.
  • Configuration complexity prevents customer
    self-help for simple problems

4
Use cases
  • Add a new machine
  • Locate Actor, IP, AE-title, Security information
  • Single node power up and establish configuration
  • Time Synchronization

5
Constraints
  • Support vendor extensions
  • Support site and enterprise extensions
  • Consider installed IT support facilities in
    selection
  • Do not invent a new protocol

6
Network Services
  • DHCP
  • Assigns IP address, hostname
  • Informs DNS of assignment
  • Provides routing, NTP, DNS, etc. information to
    client
  • DNS
  • Provides hostname to IP lookup services
  • Provides server location lookup services
  • NTP
  • Provides accurate time and time synchronization
  • See www.ntp.org for descriptions, software,
    evaluation, and configuration guidance.

7
LDAP
  • Very Widespread use,
  • No surprises to the IT staff
  • Large base of trained users and administrators
  • Large base of software clients
  • Support by Microsoft, Unix, Open Source
  • Support for federated databases
  • Easy to extend by adding schema

8
Infrastructure requirements
  • DHCP, DNS, NTP, LDAP may be on one host, or may
    be on multiple hosts.
  • Normal network design issues, nothing special for
    the DHCP, DNS and NTP services.
  • LDAP is increasingly integrated into IT
    operations. This makes its use for configuration
    management more attractive, but means a greater
    planning involvement with the IT organization.

9
Beyond AE-Titles
  • Installation and Network Configuration oriented
  • Locate Application given the AE-title
  • TCP/IP parameters
  • AE Configuration
  • SOP Classes supported (SCU/SCP, Transfer
    Syntaxes)
  • Vendor extension
  • Obtain new unique AE-Title
  • Device Configuration
  • Description
  • Vendor extension
  • Hospital extension

10
Preconfigured Installation
  • Large network addition
  • Multiple vendors
  • Reduce coordination and scheduling delays
  • Reduce configuration errors
  • Reduce staging requirements

Customer Assisted Maintenance
  • Simple device swap
  • Remote reconfiguration
  • Local reconfiguration

Present Supplement Status
  • Supplement 67 Proposed for Frozen Draft
  • Could be updated and final by September or
    October.

LDAP Schema
18
Example of attribute definition
3.1 dicomDeviceName string Single
This attribute stores the unique name (within the
scope of the LDAP database) for a DICOM
Device. It is a single-valued attribute.
This attribute's syntax is 'Directory
String'. Its case is not significant for
equality and substring matches. attributetype
( 1.2.840.10008.15.0.3.1 NAME 'dicomDeviceName'
DESC 'The unique name for the device' EQUALITY

21
Use of LDAP Schema
  • Schema text from the supplement
  • in the format used to configure generic LDAP
    servers
  • Cut and paste from supplement into server
    configuration file tested and verified
  • Local extension by modifying schema

22
Purpose of Frozen Draft
  • Find any remaining flaws in the Frozen Draft
  • Inhouse experience at several companies revealed
    flaws in the public comment version.
  • The flaws only became apparent during the
    development of trial versions.
  • Inter-company trials
  • are expected to reveal other flaws in the Frozen
    Draft version
  • The trials are not exploring implementation
    compatibility, only clarity of the standard
  • The trials are not a compatibility connectathon
  • The Committee for Advancement of DICOM is
    organizing a small group of trial implementations.

23
Future additions
  • Security parameter distribution
  • LDAP is one of the mechanisms for distributing
    PKI information for key management.
