"IBM Boosts Encryption Initiative "
IBM security initiatives next month will include a
new way to build encryption into software and
technology that could enable U.S. companies to export
products with strong encryption algorithms. IBM also
will introduce several "key-recovery" technologies
that could enable businesses to satisfy the
requirement imposed by the U.S. government that it be
able to access encrypted data on demand. IBM is
attempting to garner industry support for the new
key-recovery technology and is expected to license the
technology to Netscape and Sun.
"Revolutionary Intranet security product to be
demonstrated at Interop DotCom "
DSN's NetFortress fully automates hardware-based
authentication, encryption and key exchange into a
plug and play solution. It completely eliminates the
possibility of IP spoofing, eavesdropping and
break-ins. "After installing it, I couldn't even tell
which service a given packet was from - everything but
the packet header itself was rendered undecipherable
as it traversed the Internet." DSN Technology was
founded by Dr. Aharon Friedman and Andy Savas.
