Problems SolvedSecurity Advisory: 20140409A Heartbleed OpenSSL Bug

NanoSSL's SSL/TLS (Secure Sockets Layer/Transport Layer Security) technology authenticates endpoints and encrypts channels to provide session privacy and security on the Internet. NanoSSL operates at the transport layer in the OSI stack, and provides secured data transport for applications. It supports peer negotiation for algorithm selection, public key based exchange of secret session keys and X.509 certificates. The SSL / TLS spec embodied in NanoSSL is the world's most widely-implemented security protocol. Typically, networking OEMs use SSL to provide secured management access to the devices like switches, routers, access points and modems. But with the arrival of the "Internet of Things," several new types of devices are connected to IP networks—medical equipment, industrial sensors, smart grid devices, camcorders, and many other embedded devices. All of these devices need management access to transport data securely over the unsecured Internet.

NanoSSL is the answer.

NanoSSL can help defeat eavesdropping on wired or wireless connections and can be used to deliver secured software packages from and to authenticated endpoints. Traffic protected with NanoSSL is unreadable if intercepted, and difficult to redirect with consequence, since packet payloads cannot be deciphered. NanoSSL's cryptography is fully FIPS 140-2 validated and fully validated binaries are available for many popular platforms. Finally, NanoSSL can be usefully applied to secure many remote access use cases.

NanoSSL provides easy to use APIs for integration with applications like web servers and browsers. Its certificate management module allows it to fetch or renew SSL certificates, check the status of SSL certificates using CRLs or to query a Certificate Authority (CA) or certificate chain.

NanoSSL is Mocana's super fast, super small SSL/TLS solution specifically designed to speed product development while providing best-in-class device security services for resource-constrained environments. NanoSSL is open-standards based, extensible, extremely small footprint, platform-agnostic and includes an optional government-certified FIPS 140-2 level-1-validated crypto core. NanoSSL includes a full-featured key generator and certificate management client, and even supports Government Suite B crypto algorithms and the new RFC standard for TLS 1.2. Best of all it's surprisingly affordable: your NanoSSL total cost of ownership will be substantially less than that of open source.
