3/11/2004 - Jungo® Software Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of residential and small office/home office (SOHO) gateway software, announced that its widely deployed OpenRGTM software has been awarded VPNC certification, having passed the Interoperability Tests for IPsec systems.
VPNC (Virtual Private Network Consortium) is the international trade association for manufacturers in the VPN market. VPNC certification ensures that VPN products are interoperable with each other, following the standards set by The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).
During the VPNC certification process, OpenRG was proved to be interoperable in both directions with all other IPsec systems on test. As a VPNC certified product, OpenRG now offers customer premise equipment (CPE) manufacturers a standards-based VPN software solution that can be deployed in a wide range of residential/SOHO gateways, wireless access points, cable/DSL modem routers and integrated access devices (IADs). Jungo also provides full Documentation Profiles for IPsec interoperability that can be used by Jungo's customers when certifying their devices.
"OpenRG's VPN implementation met our strict certification standards and now offers manufacturers peace of mind that their OpenRG-powered devices will be interoperable with other VPNC certified products," said Paul Hoffman, VPNC director.
OpenRG's VPN application supports IPsec, PPTP and L2TP. Together, these allow OpenRG-powered gateways to act as a VPN client, enabling a user to securely connect with remote computers without needing to run any additional PC-based VPN software; or as a VPN server, enabling remote users to connect to a home or business network from a remote location.
"By certifying OpenRG's VPN application our customers can be assured that our VPN meets the highest industry standards," said Udi Yuhjtman, Jungo's vice president of business development. "Manufacturers building VPN SOHO or residential gateways based on OpenRG are now assured an easy path to VPNC certification themselves."
OpenRG is a scalable suite of software technologies that provides customer premise equipment (CPE) vendors with the infrastructure needed to bring residential/SOHO gateways, wireless access points and integrated access devices (IADs) to market faster. OpenRG includes an optimized Linux-based operating system, optional VxWorks support, communication and routing protocols, network security (Stateful Packet Inspection Firewall), wireless LAN security (802.1x, RADIUS client, WPA) Virtual Private Networking (VPN), Universal Plug and Play, web-based management, remote upgrade capabilities, support for CableHomeTM 1.1-based devices and a wide range of home networking applications.
