Administration and User Defined Access
Each IDG 9074 can replace up to 128 IBM 3174 controllers, and provides
256 non-SNA or 1,000 SNA sessions
per ESCON or FICON adapter,
or a combination of both. Also the IDG 9074
implements data encryption, data compression and a
request-challenge-response user authentication. Both ESCON and FICON
channel attachments are supported and can be connected directly from the
host CPU to the IDG 9074 or through an ESCON or FICON director.
The Secure Domain Server provides logon security, controls user
privileges, and manages access rights from a central point. Users can be
limited to particular sessions. All access, authority, privileges, and
security functions can be securely administered from a central point of
SecureAgent technology enables technical personnel Remote Access to
manage any system in the enterprise from any local or remote location
with complete security.
This software layer protects remote and networked communications with a
combination of patented and patent-pending processes including
encryption, compression, and user authentication.
SecureAgent's encryption is transparent to the user, easy-to-use and
requires no special training.
It is a simple matter of logging on and
working as normal.
Provides the highest allowable encryption
Provides protection against attacks
SecureAgent delivers data between the connected machines in an optimized
and compressed format.
This helps reduce communication delays over
networks, including the Internet, as well as enhancing data security.
The SecureAgent handshake, or contentious logon protocol, authenticates
the server and the client.
It uses a “Request-Challenge-Response”
process that authenticates the user.
Passwords are never sent between
SecureAgent and the remote machine
Recording of user logon data sent by remote
machines is rendered virtually worthless with an aggressive “Request -
Challenge - Response” process
All aspects of SecureAgent technology can be set up by your own
security administrator from any location.
