– Whitelisting helps ensure that the device firmware loads properly with HP genuine code—
without corruption—every time.
– Run-time intrusion detection guards against malware, so the device continues general
operation without alteration or corruption.
• Code signing: Firmware signed by HP ensures that the firmware was produced by
HP (authenticity) and that the firmware has not been altered in any way (integrity).
• Firewall: The built-in device network firewall allows or denies access to specific TCP/UDP ports
and services.
• Physical port disablement: Host USB ports, network ports, and other physical ports can be
disabled to prevent unauthorized use.
• CA & Device Identity Certificates: This MFP supports identity certificates signed by a corporate
certificate authority, which provides verification of identity and authenticity. This MFP also
supports CA certificates for validation of identity certificates. Certificates can enable secure
end-to-end communications with the device when used with features like IPsec, Secure-IPP,
HP ePrint, and more. Additional certificates can be stored for validating S/MIME email servers and
802.1x authentication.
• Authentication and authorization: Authentication can help your organization manage user
access, help secure access to management utilities, and avoid unwanted device configurations.
Control access to the MFP, device settings, and functions, with options like:
– Multiple embedded authentication methods. Print with a positive ID. With authentication
options available from the device, you can configure Windows/Kerberos authentication, LDAP
authentication, and user PIN authentication that integrates with your existing infrastructure.
– Role-based device authentication and authorization with HP FutureSmart. With
HP FutureSmart, you have more control than ever before over device security and permission
settings. IT administrators can decide who can interact with certain device capabilities—
helping to make printing more secure, control access, and uphold site security policies.
– HP and third-party authentication solutions. With optional solutions like HP Access Control,
you can enable advanced authentication using proximity cards. The Hardware Integration
Pocket on the control panel enables integration of select card readers.6
• Physical device protection: Both the device and the HP High-Performance Secure Hard Disk28
can be physically secured from theft and tampering using a lock that requires a physical key for
removal (this accessory must be purchased separately).
• Common Criteria Certification (CCC): CCC is a security certification recognized in 26 countries
worldwide. HP certifies the security functionality of its Enterprise LaserJet MFPs and printers to
align with the IEEE 2600 imaging and printing security standard.

Product guide | HP LaserJet Enterprise MFP M527 series
Protect your data
Your MFP harbors sensitive information—make sure it’s not at risk. HP offers security features at
every stage in your work.
Help protect data at rest with the following features:
• Storage encryption: Defend your data. The HP High-Performance Secure Hard Disk28 is standard
on the HP LaserJet Enterprise MFP M527f, Flow MFP M527c, and Flow MFP M527z models and is
available as an optional feature on the M527dn model and provides full hardware encryption.
• Secure Erase: The MFP provides built-in capabilities for securely overwriting data stored on it,
allowing sensitive data to be safely removed. HP offers multiple mechanisms to erase stored
data, including functionality that conforms to U.S. National Institute of Science and Technology
(NIST) Special Publication 800-88.
• Password protection: Stored passwords are encrypted to help provide protection of this critical
information.
• Secure keys, credentials, and certificates: For an extra level of security, the optional
HP Trusted Platform Module (TPM) accessory can be added to the device to strengthen
protection of encrypted credentials and data by automatically sealing device encryption keys to
the TPM, and it provides secure device identity by generating and protecting certificate private
keys.29
Protect data in transit with these features:
• Network protection: Network-transmitted data can be protected with IPsec and print jobs can
also be encrypted using Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) over SSL/TLS.
• CipherSuite Encryption Strength: Encryption strength can be selected to prevent the use of
legacy or insecure protocols for data in transit.
• FIPS-140 Mode: Ensures device uses available FIPS-140 validated cryptographic modules for
TLS encryption, SNMPv3 signing and encryption, and signed certificates.
• Secure Encrypted Print with HP UPD 5.3.1 or later: For added security, choose end-to-end
Secure Encrypted Print. HP UPD30 provides true symmetric AES256 print job encryption and
decryption from the client to the page based on a user-defined password using FIPS 140
validated cryptographic libraries from Microsoft.
• Secure Capture and Send: Scanned PDFs and emails can be encrypted using built-in FIPS 140
validated cryptographic libraries from Microsoft. HP also offers a rich portfolio of
HP JetAdvantage Workflow Solutions that provide advanced capture and route capabilities with
enterprise level security. See “Optional HP JetAdvantage Workflow Solutions” on page 8 for more
information.
• Management safeguards: Device management data that travels over the network between the
device and HP Web Jetadmin21 and other management tools can also be protected using
SNMPv3. HTTPS (HTTP over SSL/TLS) can be enforced so all connections to the device Embedded
Web Server administration interface are securely encrypted.
• Secure Mobile Print: HP offers multiple options for secure mobile printing. For more
information, see “Stay connected with secure mobile printing options” on page 11.
Safeguard your physical documents
HP offers several optional solutions to help keep documents from falling into the wrong hands and
help prevent fraud, such as:
• Pull printing: Have documents held and released only to the person who printed them. Pull
printing solutions help protect sensitive data by requiring authentication at the device, and give
users the flexibility of pulling the documents from any device that is enabled with the solution.
– HP JetAdvantage Private Print: With HP’s cloud-based solution you get the advantages of
pull printing, without the complexity. It is simple to set up and does not require a server,
installation, or maintenance. For more information, visit hpjetadvantage.com/ondemand.26
– HP Access Control Pull Print: This optional robust server-based solution offers multiple
forms of authentication including badge release, as well as enterprise level security,
management, and scalability. To learn more, visit hp.com/go/hpac.

• Embed anti-fraud features: This is a valuable tool in sensitive documents like prescriptions,
birth certificates, or transcripts. Anti-fraud features are embedded before they are routed to the
device and printed on plain paper by using the optional HP and TROY Secure Document Printing
solution.

Troubleshoot with ease
This MFP can help save your IT department valuable time when it comes to troubleshooting
problems. The new Remote Control Panel allows users to operate the user interface remotely, so IT
can troubleshoot problems without running to the MFP. 44 Users can also quickly troubleshoot
technical issues with HP’s innovative, cloud-based Online Help services that are relevant and up to
date. Easily solve problems from your PC or mobile device. A Quick Response (QR) code on the
adjustable touchscreen links to quick, accurate Online Help using smart phones and tablets.18 You
can also find these links in the HP Embedded Web Server event log.
Edit jobs right at the MFP
The control panel on the HP LaserJet Enterprise MFP M527 series features image preview, which
lets you minimize steps and reduce errors. Right from the device’s 8-inch (20.3 cm), full-color
touchscreen control panel, you can view and edit your scan job before you send it. You can easily
get your scans to look just the way you want them. Instantly preview and modify scans before
sending them into the workflow, eliminating the need to walk back and forth from a computer.
Scan multiple pages using the ADF and view them as thumbnail images, or zoom and pan for a
detailed inspection. Before finalizing a document you can reorder, rotate, delete, add, or zoom in on
pages. You can apply changes to a single page, or multiple pages at once. Batch separation allows
users to create separate PDF or PDF/A files from scanned documents. The Flow MFP M527c and
M527z models can also create PDF OCR and PDF/A OCR files.44

Use HP Quick Sets to launch automated workflows
The MFP’s digital sending capability allows users to route documents to a variety of destinations like
email recipients, network folders, fax, FTP, or a USB device. With the Flow M527c and M527z
models, you can also send scans to Microsoft SharePoint.
HP Quick Sets let you launch document workflows and get it right every time—at the touch of a
button. HP Quick Sets help by automating all of the steps of a complicated workflow, all on a large,
full-color touchscreen. Users can find what they need right away.
In addition to scan destinations, you can preset other scan settings. These can include output file
types such as PDF, JPEG, TIFF, MTIFF, XPS, and PDF/A formats. You can also specify security
settings, such as encrypted PDFs to be delivered through encrypted and signed emails. Quick Set
buttons can be easily created, labeled, and placed on the control panel home screen, so that you
can quickly find the functions you need (some examples are shown in the graphic below).
Quick Sets help IT by enabling them to promote or block access to certain device features. Calls to
the helpdesk can be reduced when users have everything they need on the home screen and are
restricted from accessing settings they shouldn’t tamper with.
