The increasing demand of customers for a maximum-security Virtual Private Network (VPN) solution have persuaded mils electronic to start the development of a set of VPN products combining the convenience of VPN with the best cipher technology currently available.
mils electronic has initiated a cooperation with the well-known Austrian firewall / VPN specialist PHION to jointly develop the MilsVPN product. mils electronic will enhance PHION’s netfence product line with its cipher technology level II to provide the most secure VPN solution currently on the market.
MILSCARD TAMPER-RESISTANT SECURITY HARDWARE
Our tamper-resistant security hardware module MilsCard is an integral part of each MilsVPN component. It protects the sensitive components of the network, such as cryptographic keys and encryption algorithms, and serves as a source for all cryptographic keys.
RANDOM CRYPTOGRAPHIC KEY GENERATION
Unlike current VPN solutions, all cryptographic keys used in our solution are exclusively generated under your control, employing the true random noise source that is implemented into each MilsCard.
MILS BLOCK CIPHER ALGORITHM PROVIDES CUSTOM CRYPTOLOGY
MilsVPN uses the Mils Block Cipher (MBC) algorithm for encrypting the VPN traffic. On demand, this algorithm can be customised according to your specifications, allowing you to implement your own cryptography into our products.
CENTRAL LAN INFRASTRUCTURE MANAGEMENT
MilsVPN provides you with a central management of the entire LAN infrastructure. The administrator possesses all available options for checking the security status of clients and implementing company-wide security rules.
Accessing the headquarters’ LAN is only permitted after a successful two-factor authentication. To provide the utmost transparency, mils electronic additionally offers cipher checks allowing a complete evaluation of the implemented cryptography.
SECURE AND RELIABLE GATEWAY
The seamless integration of main sites, small branch offices and mobile units is the key to enhancing productivity throughout your organisation; but protecting the entire infrastructure also depends on branch offices and mobile users having a secure and reliable gateway solution, as a single link which has not been adequately secured leaves a convenient open back-door for attackers to enter the main site.
With MilsVPN the function and management of all technologies meshes perfectly to create a complete overarching system that incorporates the highest possible security level of each component.
MULTIPLE-LEVEL DATA-TRAFFIC PROTECTION
The combination of PHION netfence gateways and mils electronic cipher technology guarantees the satisfaction of the network owner. Stateful inspection firewall, Intrusion Prevention (IPS), application protection and maximum-security VPN functionality combine to provide protection of data traffic on various levels.
Thanks to central management of the entire infrastructure and simple installation (including operating systems) visits by personnel to remote sites are rarely necessary: on the contrary, our clients benefit from a substantially reduced Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) whilst simultaneously receiving optimised network-performance and security.
The MilsVPN is a powerful Linux-based appliance which integrates a high-performance firewall, cutting-edge technology VPN, intrusion prevention, Denial Of Service (DDos / DoS) protection, and intelligent bandwidth and multipath management with other critical application gateway functionality.
VPN SERVER FOR BRANCH OFFICES
The VPN server for branch offices is a tailor-made security and communication solution for regional offices which provides the same security level as the VPN server for headquarters, but is aligned to smaller workgroups with fewer users.
VPN client is a Windows®-based VPN connector with MilsCard-based authentication and strong encryption that permits immediate access with dial-up, broadband or wireless links. It additionally features a powerful personal firewall.
