HIP services: Secure Networking Enforcement Points
HIP services are physical, virtual, or cloud gateways that provide cloaking, secure connectivity, identity-based routing, and micro, macro, or cross-boundary segmentation. They enforce the Conductor’s provisioning, de-provisioning and revocation of trust of any managed IP resource behind a HIP service. HIP services follow the Host Identity Protocol standard, which initiates trust before transport communication is established and any data is exchanged between the HIP service and other authorized HIP service endpoints. Tempered Networks’ Conductor orchestrates policies across HIP service endpoints distributed throughout the IDN fabric, and the fabric maintains state.
HIPswitches are typically deployed in front of devices or hosts that can’t protect themselves or when customers are unable to install either a HIPclient, HIPserver, or HIPapp. HIPswitches can be deployed as physical, virtual, or cloud-based appliances. Tempered Networks’ physical appliances have built-in Ethernet, Wi-Fi, Cellular (2G, 3G, 4G LTE modems), as well as Serial-over IP and SatCom support. The physical appliances can fail to wire, Wi-Fi, and or cell and can be configured for high availability depending on customer need.
The HIPclient is a software client installed on Windows or Mac laptops and PCs. The HIPclient enables customers to give endpoints a trusted and verifiable identity, which opens up a broad array of end-user secure access, networking, mobility, and segmentation use cases.
The HIPserver supports Windows Server today, and will soon be available for Linux, and BSD based servers. HIPserver behaves much like the HIPclient but is also built to completely cloak the server itself so only authenticated and authorized endpoints can communicate with it. Using the explicit trust model, cloaking, software-defined segmentation, and encryption are driven down to the server level, effectively enforcing a perimeter of one.
The HIPapp is software that can be embedded into nearly any application or service, making it easy for developers to incorporate unified secure networking directly into an application. The types of applications could be mobile, web-based, and even fat client applications.
The HIPchip is firmware designed specifically to run on custom hardware for connected devices like IP cameras, cable modems and routers, POE switches, IP phones, and IoT sensors. The minimum hardware requirement to run the HIPchip firmware is a 500 MHz MIPS processor and 64 MB of RAM.
