VIA add VPN Tools to Padlock Suite
November 11, 2004
VIA have added the VIA Padlock VPN Utility to their Padlock Hardware Security Suite, a growing set of tools optimised for use with recent VIA processors fitted with on-board hardware encryption.
The utility is targetted at networking software developers wishing to combine IP security and VPN technology with the hardware cipher accelerator (Advanced Cryptography Engine) in C5P Nehemiah core VIA processors. The VIA PadLock VPN can be incorporated into an embedded VPN gateway or firewall device to implement a secure site to site link between two networks, or as a client/server system to implement secure access between roaming clients and a network.
Boards fitted with C5P Nehemiah core VIA processors include the EPIA MII 12000, and soon the MS8000E and MS12000, followed by the SP8000E and SP13000 next year and eventually the N5000E, N8000E, and N10000E.
The PadLock VPN Utility is designed to be used with Linux based operating systems supporting kernel 2.6 or higher, and is over at viaarena.com.
