9/24/2004 - TeamF1, Inc., the high-performance embedded networking and security software company, announced the immediate availability of AuthAgent X.509 and AuthAgent RADIUS, the most recent additions to TeamF1's increasing list of lean-footprint, pre-fabbed embedded software products. AuthAgent RADIUS and AuthAgent X.509 are two standards-based technology implementations that allow embedded devices to be authenticated using enterprise-wide databases and ensure the authorized use of key network resources.
"These new components offer wider authentication choices to our customers, and seamlessly integrate with our broad range of security applications including our own SSHield (SSH), SSLimSecure (SSL) and V-IPSecure (IPsec)," said Vinai Kolli, Vice President of Engineering at TeamF1. "Both are designed for low-footprint and high-performance embedded needs, with special emphasis on hardware acceleration. They are built using our stringent software engineering processes, and offer developer-friendly APIs."
TeamF1's Growing AuthAgent Family
A client implementation of the popular Remote Authentication Dial In User Service (RADIUS) standard, AuthAgent RADIUS interacts with enterprise authentication databases to decide whether the embedded device it is used in should grant privileges or not. AuthAgent RADIUS provides a powerful yet simple mechanism to secure everything from VPNs to wireless networks when used in conjunction with protocols that secure the network path.
AuthAgent X.509 is an embedded, modular authentication framework based on X.509 digital certificates. It can be used with diverse security technologies requiring digital-certificate based authentication, such as SSL and SSH for secure device management and IPsec for layer 3 security, as well as in custom applications including consumer electronics devices, network and storage equipment.
AuthAgent RADIUS and AuthAgent X.509 are immediately available for full source, royalty-free licensing directly from TeamF1 or one of its channel partners. They are supported on popular embedded operating systems including VxWorks® and pSOSystem®.
TeamF1, Inc., founded in 1996, is a privately held corporation headquartered in Fremont, CA. TeamF1's products enable secure management of telecom/datacom and industrial equipment, and provide the infrastructure components needed for switching and wireless products in various market segments.
