Embedded Security Leader Intoto Receives Full VPNC Certification for iGateway VPN

8/6/2002 - Intoto, a leader in the embedded security market, received full certification from VPNC (Virtual Private Network Consortium) for its iGateway VPN solution by passing all the three levels of conformance testing and complete interoperability testing. iGateway is a fully integrated network security software platform with NAT, stateful inspection Firewall, and Virtual Private Networking (IPSec, IKE, and PKI), with provisioning, remote management, logging, and configuration capabilities.

Intoto’s iGateway VPN software successfully passed the VPNC testing for all three conformance procedures including - Basic, Rekeying, and Certificates. The Basic test incorporates product initiating an IPsec ESP tunnel to each of the two test gateways consisting of TripleDES for encryption, SHA-1 for hash, 1024-bit key exchange, and a preshared secret for authentication. Rekeying testing involves automatically rekeying the Phase 2 SA. The Phase 2 SAs also use perfect forward secrecy ("PFS"). Certificates test, the most comprehensive of the three, verifies that the system has the ability to create an IPSEC tunnel by using PKIX certificates.

"We are very pleased that our product was successfully certified by VPNC for conformance and interoperability," said Sathyan Iyengar, President & CEO at Intoto Inc. "This conformance and interoperability certification accelerates time-to-market for our customers building secured gateway equipment. OEM manufacturers can immediately leverage our certified products to jumpstart the development of their security solutions, and deliver fully interoperable, completely functional security solutions."
