SAN FRANCISCO -- Mocana, a software company that is enabling a secure networked society, today announced that its Embedded IPsec/IKE solution now fully supports IKEv2, the most recent version of the Internet Key Exchange protocol which is used to negotiate a Security Association at the outset of an IPsec session. By increasing the breadth of its product line to include the support of IKEv2, Mocana is ensuring that the most current security standards are being met and is demonstrating Mocanas commitment to upholding the highest levels of security.
Many industries are standardizing on IKEv2 and will require vendors to support the protocol, said Adrian Turner, chief executive officer and president of Mocana. Mocanas Embedded IPsec/IKEv2 is just another example of how Mocana is striving to provide customers with solutions that are completely scalable and that meet the most current security standards.
Next generation wireless and mobility standards have formalized IKEv2 as its Key Exchange protocol. IKEv2 is ideally suited for processor and bandwidth-constrained wireless devices like dual mode VoIP/WiFi handsets, by reducing connection latency, processing, and by providing DoS (denial of service) protection. With the release of IKEv2, Mocana provides a complete Device Security Framework for next generation mobile devices. Now, device manufacturers can build FMC, IMS, 3GPP and UMA devices using Mocana's integrated IPSec/IKEv2 and EAP solution containing EAP-SIM, EAP-AKA, EAP-IKEv2.
