Providing Integrated Hardware Security Solutions for Secure Virtual Private Networking (VPN)
RedCreek provides Paktronix Systems Linux Firewall users with the means to incorporate the latest network security features quickly and easily. Secure communications over Intranets/Extranets and secure Remote Access are easily implemented using the Ravlin IPSec Card for the Linux 2.2 platform.
The Ravlin IPSec Card advances the state of IPSec networking and server communications in two very important and innovative ways. For the first time users can implement Internet Protocol Security Standard encryption (IPSec) and authentication in hardware on Linux 2.2. This IPSec capability is based on a new VPN form factor. All the functionality associated with RedCreek's standalone Ravlin 10 VPN hardware device has been implemented on a PCI base card that is simply installed into a Paktronix Systems Linux Firewall or any Linux 2.2 system.
Internet Protocol Security Standard (IPSec) is a framework of open standards for ensuring secure private communications over public networks like the Internet. Based on standards developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) IP Security Working Group, IPSec is an industry-driven standard that ensures confidentiality, integrity, and authenticity of an IP network. IPSec is a key component of this standards-based, flexible solution for deploying a network-wide security policy.
The Ravlin IPSec Card in combination with the Paktronix Systems Linux Firewall allows private communications over any network, including the Internet, without performance degradation. It can turn a Paktronix Systems Linux 2.2 E-Commerce web server into a secure E-Commerce web server with hardware VPN tunnels. It also allows the Paktronix Systems Linux Firewalls to provide thorough packet filtering and access control with hardware IPSec encrypted tunnels all from one platform.
Ravlin IPSec Card
Hardware encryption accelerates the encryption and decryption of sensitive data on Linux servers, security routers, and workstations. This makes it possible to encrypt and decrypt network traffic without the processing and network performance degradation usually associated with encryption.
The Ravlin technology is based on IPSec standards developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force. IPSec is an industry driven standard that ensures confidentiality, integrity, and authenticity of an IP network.
The RavlinNodeManager is an easy-to-use management and control tool for configuring, managing, and integrating Ravlin products in an organization's network and security infrastructure. This tool provides robust security management by allowing multiple levels of security among Ravlin hardware units and RavlinSoft clients. Compatible with Linux 2.2 based products, RavlinNodeManager allows easy setup and dismantling of secure intranets, extranets, and remote access clients through installation and configuration wizards. From a single centralized location, network managers can manage Ravlin products in an IPSec-compliant secure Virtual Private Network (VPN), checking the status of units and users and adding or removing remote users. Network managers can also monitor traffic between units and modify existing configurations. As a management tool, RavlinNodeManager is complementary to standard SNMP managers like IBM Netview/6000® for monitoring, displaying statistics, and sending alarms.
