Nokia to detail e-mail security scheme at conference

Wednesday, 9 April 2003, 4:46 PM EST

Nokia's Internet Communications Division will release first details on it's Message Protector architecture at the RSA Security Conference in San Francisco aimed at addressing the dual problems of e-mail-based viruses and worms along with spam received over wired and wireless connections.

The new SC6600 security appliance used to demonstrate the new architecture looks like other SMTP security gateway appliances designed to sit between the corporate firewall and mail servers. One difference improved throughput: a 35-pound "pizza box"-sized 1RU chassis powered by dual Intel P4 Xeon processors, one gigabit of DRAM, and dual 36 gigabyte hot swap SCSI drives in a RAID-1 configuration that can handle more than 120,000 e-mail messages an hour.

Dan MacDonald, vice president of the Nokia division, the hardware appliance is the nexus point for an array of software and services. Nokia has worked for a year creating and integrating software and services to address network security, including a real-time, security-hardened version of Linux and advanced firewalling, VPN, policy management, traffic shaping and anti-virus detection.
