IP Technology Labs Awarded Patent Supporting Split-Routing for Internet-of-Things, VPN, & SD-WAN Network Deployments

Posted by Comments Off on IP Technology Labs Awarded Patent Supporting Split-Routing for Internet-of-Things, VPN, & SD-WAN Network Deployments

Invention facilitates automatic and transparent network split-routing and forwarding automation without any manual changes to configurations or architectures. Simplifies connectivity and management of all IoT, M2M, and VPN deployments.

Baltimore, Maryland USA July 12, 2016– IP Technology Labs, the leading provider of 4th Generation VPN connectivity, WAN/SD-WAN, and IoT secure networking appliances, today announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued US Patent #9,391,881 covering a method of automatic and transparent network forwarding connectivity.

The proprietary technology fills-in gaps in existing technologies in the way that applications and devices obtain a presence and communicate on a network, and eliminates the need of additional networking services to ensure connectivity.

Additionally, IpTL has successfully achieved a best rating for PCI DSS 3.2 Platform Vulnerability Assessment.  Click here to get a copy of your report.

“IoT and VPN are driving connectivity based networking,” said Scott Whittle, President of IP Technology Labs. “The proliferation of IoT and remote connections demands efficient, deterministic, and low cost connectivity. IpTL has always recognized that the network should serve the application. Now IoT and VPN users don’t have to support bloated and out-of-date routing protocols in order to connect, communicate, and control.”

By modifying LAN based protocols over the WAN, the invention permits connectivity and communications without requiring expensive routers or complex configurations. Additionally, split-routing permits local traffic to egress locally while maintaining end-to-end connectivity for tunnel based applications. This is particularly important for IoT devices which are typically specialized and lack the network stack or processing capabilities of larger full-featured routers and routing protocols.

As the World’s Longest Ethernet Cable™ IpTL FastLane solutions are the 4th Generation of VPN placing your LAN securely anywhere in the world while integrating all your wireless and wired devices seamlessly. Using any Internet connection an enterprise can create its own virtualized, private, and secure LAN network. IpTL appliances work especially well in network environments VPN, WAN, and IoT applications where NAT, Nested-NAT, or Dynamic-IP/DHCP is present on both ends of a link.

and our Security #1 Whitepaper Bundle


IP Technology Labs, the leading provider of 4th Generation VPN connectivity, WAN/SD-WAN, and IoT secure networking appliances, today announces that it has been independently verified to pass all PCI DSS 3.2 elements without indicating any vulnerabilities.

The Payment Card Industry (“PCI”) Standards Council sets forth the Data Security Standards (“DSS”) for all entities involved in payment card processing. Recognizing the increase in threats, breaches, and exploits compliance with the PCI DSS helps to alleviate these vulnerabilities and protect cardholder data. PCI DSS 3.2 compliance is required for merchants, devices, and applications within the Cardholder Data Environment (“CDE”) for payment processing. PCI DSS 3.2 updates and obsoletes version 3.1 and takes effect in October, 2016.

“Security is more than just protecting data.” said Scott Whittle, President of IP Technology Labs. “IpTL has always led with the system in mind. With zero security vulnerabilities, our customers can deploy and audit to PCI 3.2 DSS levels with confidence. As always, we have consistently lead the industry with the best connectivity, privacy, and security. Now, confirmation from an independent lab assessment continues to strengthen what our customers already know and trust.”

One significant PCI DSS 3.2 update is the requirement to move towards better security for data-in-transit protocol standards. IpTL has had TLSv1.2 in all its appliances since it was available and has never used vulnerable SSL. Using Tenable’s Nessus™ vulnerability scanner shows that IpTL has zero critical, high, medium, or low vulnerabilities for PCI DSS 3.2 elements. A copy of the report is available here at IpTL’s website.

SECURITY: IpTL Immune to OpenSSL DROWN Attack

Posted by Comments Off on SECURITY: IpTL Immune to OpenSSL DROWN Attack

Today it was announced that OpenSSL has another security defect called Decrypting RSA with Obsolete and Weakened eNcryption or “DROWN.” DROWN is a cross-protocol attack which leverages a specific weaknesses in certain OpenSSL SSLv2 implementationsPrimarily a Man-in-the-Middle (MitM) attack, DROWN can allow decryption of a TLS connection by using sending specially crafted SSLv2 malicious packets and open decryption tools.

The primary vulnerability in the marketplace are poorly configured HTTPS webservers which still permit SSLv2 to be negotiated.  IpTL only uses TLSv1.2, for tunnel transport and encryption, and does not have any option to negotiate SSLv2.  As we always have security at the forefront we are not vulnerable to this attack. 

Here are some key points which are standard in any IpTL solution:

  • IpTL secure links do not use SSL or HTTPS. We are built on TLSv1.2 and use AES 256 encryption default.

  • There are no weak export ciphers in our system.

  • We use 2,048 bit RSA asymmetric keys.

  • IpTL is a closed symmetric system with our appliances or virtual machines are on both ends of the link and not point-security solution.

    Thus, we can guarantee AES 256 encryption on your data and no one can force a downgrade to another encryption level which can be broken.   If the cipher spec is altered then no connection will take place and no data leaked.

  • With our Tunnel Authentication passphrase you can input a 64 character passcode which locks even the initial TLS communications between the endpoints.  Note: this is not the encryption pre-shared key (we don’t offer preshared keys!) 

    When using this feature only the appliances sharing the same passphrase can communicate.  Any other connection attempts are ignored…you can’t even get the server to respond to a non-authorized connection to attempt a downgrade.  This is above and beyond our standard ephemeral key exchanges and HMACs of TLS!

  • IpTL offers the elliptical curve AES 256 GCM with SHA 384 as a cipher option for true state-of-the-art confidentiality, standard!
