Express Logic has extended its NetX Duo TCP/IP IPv4/IPv6 dual stack with IPsec protocol support. NetX/IPsec can secure transactions between two hosts, a host and a network or a network to a network (e.g., a gateway device to network traffic between a local and main office). The company said IPsec protection requires no changes to existing NetX applications.


 

"IPsec (Internet Protocol Security), a protocol suite for securing network communications, has become the defacto standard for securing connected devices in consumer, medical and industrial markets.

"IPsec encrypts and authenticates each packet of a communication session. NetX Duo with IPsec support (NetX/IPsec) creates a virtual channel between two networks within which packets traveling in the channel are encrypted for security and signed for authenticity.

"NetX/IPsec can secure transactions between two hosts (e.g., a medical record transmitted from a handheld patient-monitoring device to the physician's workstation), a host and a network (e.g., a remote access session from a hotel room to the company headquarters) or a network to a network (e.g., a gateway device to network traffic between a local and main office). IPsec protection requires no changes to existing NetX applications because all encryption and authentication is done at the network layer, which sits below any application code or API references."
