In the Boxing Ring - May 2015 [PDF]



5 May 2015 - Welcome to the May 2015 edition of ‘In the Boxing Ring’.


This month, we present the second in our two part series on proxying the SSL protocol. For the first part, please refer to the April 2015 edition of the In the Boxing Ring newsletter.


Previously, we talked about how Transport Layer Security (TLS) and its predecessor Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) are cryptographic protocols have been used to secure communications for more than 10 years. We’ve also presented how they rely on the certificate, how that certificate is verified, and how man-in-the-middle interception can take place. In pages 2-3, we discuss in detail how Network Box supports SSL in it’s Network Box 5 product.


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, it has been a busy month for Network Box. Not only did Network Box win a PC3 Platinum Brand Award in the Managed Security Services and Unified Threat Management categories; Network Box 5 won multiple awards at the Silicon Valley Communications Info Security Awards 2015, and a Most Valuable Product 2015 Award from Computer Technology Review USA.
