NETWORLD+INTEROP INTEROP Interoperability
INTEROP Interoperational 98 ATLANTA BOOTH #904
RADGUARD, a pioneer and leader in the emerging secure virtual private network (VPN (Virtual Private Network) A private network that is configured within a public network (a carrier's network or the Internet) in order to take advantage of the economies of scale and management facilities of large networks. ) market, this week will take part in the NetWorld+Interop show network, the InteropNet, and demonstrate interoperability with other vendors' products.
This will be the first public demonstration of an interoperable virtual private network (VPN).
The secure VPN will be demonstrated at the InteropNet Applications Forum at NetWorld+Interop 98 Atlanta from October 21-23 at the Georgia World Congress Center The Georgia World Congress Center or GWCC is the major convention center in Atlanta. It is the fourth-largest convention center in the United States at 1.4 million ft2 (130,000 m2) and hosts more than a million visitors each year. in Atlanta. In addition to demonstrating its interoperable secure VPN solution over the InteropNet, with IPSec and ISAKMP/Oakley, RADGUARD will create a secure VPN between their booth (#904), the InteropNet Applications Forum, and the company's U.S. headquarters in New Jersey.
RADGUARD's VPN will be joined by Information Resource Engineering (IRE), and the two companies will pass IPSec encrypted and authenticated traffic over a VPN tunnel using hypertext transfer protocol See HTTP.
(protocol) Hypertext Transfer Protocol - (HTTP) The client-server TCP/IP protocol used on the World-Wide Web for the exchange of HTML documents. It conventionally uses port 80.
Latest version: HTTP 1.1, defined in RFC 2068, as of May 1997. (HTTP HTTP
in full HyperText Transfer Protocol
Standard application-level protocol used for exchanging files on the World Wide Web. HTTP runs on top of the TCP/IP protocol. ). The encrypted web page being transmitted over the InteropNet will be displayed for attendees at the show. To create the VPN, RADGUARD has supplied the cIPro-VPN, a hardware-based IPSec gateway, and IRE has supplied SafeNet/Soft-PK, a public key encryption See public key cryptography. and authentication utility, and Windows 95/NT client software.
"Show attendees will be able to witness, for the first time, an interoperable VPN created with ICSA-certified products from two different vendors," said Ronen Kenan, president of RADGUARD Inc. "The focus of the ICSA See TruSecure. , like the InteropNet, is to foster industry interoperability. This demo, like the demo in Las Vegas Las Vegas (läs vā`gəs), city (1990 pop. 258,295), seat of Clark co., S Nev.; inc. 1911. It is the largest city in Nevada and the center of one of the fastest-growing urban areas in the United States. , once again spotlights RADGUARD's dedication to international standards."
RADGUARD will run NetMeeting, a video program, over the secure tunnel between the booth and the Applications Forum where there will be cameras at each end, and this video stream will be viewable on monitors at each site.
For the first time, the industry goal of multi-vendor VPNs is becoming a reality, which means organizations can standardize on different security products but still gain the efficiencies of a VPN. RADGUARD's cIPro-VPN and IRE's SafeNet/Soft-PK enable the use of extranets since they are ICSA-certified IPSec products.
