IPSec VPNs for Extranets: Not what you want to wake up next to
In general VPNs are ill suited to building multi-company extranets, for any situation that extends across organizational boundaries, or where there is

ipsec  alongside those operational impediments. IPSec Virtual Private Networks assume common administrative control of both ends of a connection. Administrators at each end must coordinate everything from shared key exchanges to encryption modes, fallback modes, IP addressing, firewall configurations, and security policies. A partner must coordinate with his counterparts any changes to these parameters. All this to establish a private network connection, and private does not mean secure. A VPN establishes an

Security Stocks Burn Rubber


Security technology stocks are burning rubber as they peel out in front of swaggering technology blue chips. Who are some of these security market leaders and what kinds of security products do they offer?

ipsec  can add industry standard IPsec security to their product lines. As appliance firewalls are leading the firewall market, we anticipate that the Cyberguard KnightSTAR will see vast increases in its user base. Cyberguard also sells SNMP supported firewalls for HPOpenview, Tivoli, and CA-Unicenter. As well, Cyberguard offers NT hardening for firewalls built into their SecureGuard NT firewall product. The KnightSTAR is one of the few firewalls that have a secure NMS agent currently available. ASPs and ISPs wi Read More

Netscreen ISG 2000


Juniper Networks provides integrated firewall/IPSec VPN security appliances that administrators use to protect networks with a layered security approach. The breadth of performance (50Mbps to 12Gbps) and interface options (up to 78 physical interfaces) enables administrators to protect communications and resources at the perimeter, in the infrastructure and out to remote sites and users. Every appliance is designed for integration of hardware and software processing--using a high-speed multi-bus architecture that couples ASIC-based processing with a dedicated security-specific operating system. A controlling element in the company's devices is the operating system, NetScreen ScreenOS, which is a real time, security-specific operating system. ScreenOS includes the following set of security and management applications. - Common criteria and ICSA certified stateful inspection firewall for network protection - ICSA certified IPSec VPN gateway for interoperable, secure communications - Deep inspection for application-level attack protection - Virtualization capabilities for network segmentation - High availability to ensure maximum network reliability - Management interfaces, both internal and external to facilitate deployment

VPNs Are Hot, but What Are They?


The Virtual Private Network (VPN) market is exploding. There are many different ideas on what a VPN is, and how to implement them. This article clarifies what sound VPN products and services should include, and what to expect as the market matures.

ipsec  Microsoft will be bundling IPSec in Windows 2000, and the implementation will be interoperable with many leading network house VPN solutions. Early reports indicate that Microsoft has botched its IPSec implementation as badly as it botched its PPTP implementation. Nonetheless, it goes without saying that any VPN product that cannot talk IPSec is likely to become an antiquity in the near future. So if a VPN product does not support protocol encapsulation so that IPX and Appletalk can cross IP networks, it Read More

Network Data Protection Playbook: Network Security Best Practice for Protecting Your Organization


Malicious hacking and illegal access are just a few of the reasons companies lose precious corporate data every year. As the number of network security breaches increase, companies must find ways to protect data beyond the perimeter of their businesses. But how do they build a data-defensible architecture that will protect data on an ever-evolving network? The answer: by first developing an in-depth defense strategy.

ipsec  for Layer 3 protocols. IPSec is the mandated best practice for securing block-based storage protocols iSCSI, iFCP and FCIP. It is also quickly becoming the standard for protecting applications and data inside the enterprise network. IPSec provides three levels of data security: confidentiality, authentication and integrity. Confidentiality: Keeping the data secret. IPSec uses powerful standard encryption algorithms (AES or 3DES) to protect data from being accessed by unauthorized parties. Authentication: Read More

I Want My Private Cloud


Although many organizations are considering reaping the benefits of a cloud computing platform, they have concerns with the handling of sensitive information on a public cloud platform. An alternate option is available, and it means having our own private cloud. This article discusses aspects of private cloud computing and its advantages and drawbacks for organizations considering the adoption of a private cloud strategy.

ipsec  independent platform via an IPsec private connection. Some software providers, such as VMware, are working hard on this type of solution. Both public and private clouds essentially provide the same computing features: network access, elasticity, resource pooling, and, of course, multitenancy. But the same does not apply to operations and consumption. Having a private cloud may lead to increased costs, maintenance, and operational issues. With a public cloud, organizations exercise minimal efforts in insta Read More

Understanding the PCI Data Security Standard


The payment card industry data security standard (PCI DSS) defines a comprehensive set of requirements to enhance and enforce payment account data security in a proactive rather than passive way. These include security management, policies, procedures, network architectures, software design, and other protective measures. Get a better understanding of the PCC DSS and learn the costs and benefits of compliance.
