What is Transport Layer Security (TLS)?

Network World

Despite the goal of keeping Web communications private, flaws in the design and implementation of Transport Layer Security have led to breaches, but the latest version – TLS 1.3 – is an overhaul that strengthens and streamlines the crypto protocol. TLS is a cryptographic protocol that provides end-to-end communications security over networks and is widely used for internet communications and online transactions.

Securing risky network ports

Network World

Data packets travel to and from numbered network ports associated with particular IP addresses and endpoints, using the TCP or UDP transport layer protocols. All ports are potentially at risk of attack. No port is natively secure. Each port and underlying service has its risks. The risk comes from the version of the service, whether someone has configured it correctly, and, if there are passwords for the service, whether these are strong?

IDG Contributor Network: Can SD-WANs meet standards requirements?

Network World

MPLS being the de facto transport. Any innovative technology faces a battle of doubt. When Amazon first rolled out AWS, few could imagine servers running in the cloud. Before Salesforce, many thought CRM to be too critical to run as SaaS. I find SD-WANs to be facing a similar battle. It’s inconceivable to many that an SD-WAN could replace MPLS. This is particularly true for security teams. At one recent client, a chemical company, the team was looking to transition from MPLS to SD-WAN.

That’s the average time and result of installing an IoT device today.

Autopoiesis and how hyper-connectivity is literally bringing the networks to life

Trends in the Living Networks

When I started writing my book Living Networks in early 2002 I thought that it was important to demonstrate that the concept of 'living networks' was not just a metaphor, but a reality: we, together with the networks that connect us, are literally a new life form. This morning when someone mentioned living networks to me I remembered that this was a literal phrase that I had never explained, so here is the introduction, seen for the first time. LIFE AND NETWORKS.
