OpenReach supports WLAN security

Tuesday, 29 April 2003, 1:24 AM EST

OpenReach is upgrading its IP Security and Secure Sockets Layer services to include protection of wireless LANs by using secure tunnels and then melding these local wireless tunnels into secure WAN connections over the Internet.

Version 5.0 of OpenReach IP WAN Services software lets OpenReach security gateways create SSL or IPSec sessions with any flavor of 802.11 wireless devices, shoring up the wireless security that many users don't trust. The gateway can tunnel that connection through to a gateway at another corporate site using the Internet as the WAN connection.
