Interlink Networks new Padlock is an embedded software solution that secures wireless access products and broadband networks. Padlock provides IEEE 802.1X standards-based security capabilities in a very small design footprint, allowing easy integration into wireless LAN (WLAN) devices.
Padlock is unique because it is a complete wireless authentication solution that allows network equipment manufacturers to rapidly incorporate enterprise-level Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA)-compliant security into their wireless LAN platforms. By integrating the Padlock software solution into a wireless network hardware device, such as an access point, the access point assumes the role of an authentication server and no external RADIUS server or directory server is required to secure the wireless network.
Padlock is designed for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) of wireless gear, such as access points, routers, residential gateways, and security appliances, that sell to the small office / home office (SOHO) market. These providers of wireless gear serve customers that have unmanaged IT environments.
Padlock provides RADIUS-based user authentication, which resides in the local memory on the wireless access product. Thus, no external servers or appliances are required for enterprise-level, Layer 2 WLAN security. Padlock features a simple, one-page configuration screen, making it much easier to configure than with Pre-Shared Key (PSK) or WEP security.
