This request was sent to me.

Im trying to wrap my head around the requirement this person describes.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

/* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-priority:99; mso-style-qformat:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:11.0pt; font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif"; mso-ascii-font-family:Calibri; mso-ascii-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-fareast-font-family:SimSun; mso-fareast-theme-font:minor-fareast; mso-hansi-font-family:Calibri; mso-hansi-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-bidi-font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-bidi-theme-font:minor-bidi;}

"It's a bit of a strange requirement and I can't get into specifically why we want it. We're not looking for a GRE or IPSec VPN - rather we want the properties of such a site to site VPN, however we want the transport to be SSL (not just TCP as I said earlier). Essentially we have other data (various types) that we want a black box to encapsulate in SSL."

I am having little bit knowledge on SSL Black box.

By using SSLBlackbox you can connect to remote servers or build your own secure servers.

[Refer Attached Diagram]

In particular, SSLBlackbox includes a client-side component to upload and download files using FTP / FTPS protocol. Other operations defined by FTP protocol specifications are supported as well. Note: FTPS (FTP over SSL) is not SFTP, which is SSH File Transfer Protocol

One of the recent additions to SSL/TLS family of protocols is Datagram TLS ( DTLS ), which is very similar to TLS. DTLS is used to protect UDP-based or other message-based network communications such as stream audio and video delivery. SSLBlackbox is one of the few solutions to provide client-side and server-side DTLS support.

Unlike symmetric encryption, securing communications with SSL/TLS doesn't require that the sides know the shared secret (password/encryption key). Also, the public key security lets each side examine authenticity of the other side and prevent man-in-the-middle attacks. Another benefit of SSL/TLS is that PKI infrastructure is a widely-used technology, so implementation and maintenance of SSL/TLS-based solutions are quite simple tasks.

SSLBlackbox does not use CryptoAPI, OpenSSL or other third-party encryption library. For certificate creation, management and validation SSLBlackbox uses PKI Blackbox, base functions of which are included with SSLBlackbox package.

SSLBlackbox has been tested with numerous client-side and server-side SSL implementations, including Internet Information Server and Java 2 EE. SSLBlackbox includes special workarounds for SSL/TLS implementation flaws, found in this software.

SSLBlackbox is offered as an individual package and as a part of Professional, Standard and Transports packages.

Why to choose SecureBlackbox: Resons are as follows:



Easy to use architecture

Flexible support policy

Readiness for use

Affordable licensing schemes.

Hope this Helps
