In the Boxing Ring - April 2015 [PDF]



8 April 2015 - Welcome to the April 2015 edition of ‘In the Boxing Ring’.


This month, we present the first part in a two part series on Proxying the SSL protocol. Transport Layer Security (TLS) and its predecessor Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) are cryptographic protocols. They are designed to permit the authentication of clients to servers, and vice-versa, as well as protect the communications from such threats as eavesdropping, tampering, and replay. The protocols have been around for more than 10 years now, and are seeing near ubiquitous usage as the protocol of choice for secure communications of many sorts. This is discussed further on pages 2-3.


On pages 4–5, we highlight the features and fixes to be released in this month’s patch Tuesday for Network Box 5 and Network Box 3. We continue to develop, and will continue to support, Network Box 3 for the foreseeable future (several years).


Finally, Network Box won the Capital Outstanding Enterprise 2015 Award, for the 'Best Network Security Provider.' Network Box is extremely proud to have won this highly prestigious award and would like to thank everyone, who voted for Network Box in this competition.
