Robust security using SSL/SSH

ETERNUS DX supports SSL (Secure Socket Layer)/SSH (Secure Shell) for encryption and secure transfer of data over a network.
Normal data transmisision without encryption bears the risk of possible unauthorized accesses from malicious Web browsers/CLI (*Note 1) that appear authorized while attempting to steal or alter data.

SSL enables secure transmission of important data using SSL server certification (public key and secret key) on both browser and web server. Note: Https (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol over SSL) used on the Web, applies this SSL encryption technology to http.
SSH encrypts data using common key encryption methologies (DES, AES) as it is forwarded from one computer to another via a TCP/IP network. By this and by also hiding the common key using public key encryption methologies, SSH achieves high data security.

Encrpyted communication between ETERNUS DX and user terminals using these technologies prevents alteration and theft of important information.

*Note 1: An acronym for Command Line Interface. A user inteface for device conrol using written commands. Used to prevent operational mistakes as well as enabling quick implementaion of common operations based on scripts. (e.g. simple progams that list standard operational commands for setup and maintainence).
*Note 2: GUI: Acronym for Granphical User Interface. A user interface that provides intuitive manipulation using computer graphics and pointing devices rather than command lines.

Benefits

  • Prevents data alteration and information theft.
  • Prevents unauthorized access from identity thieft.
