Air-Frame provides and number of security features including VPNs.
Air-Frame mandates the use of either PAP (Password Authentication Protocol) or CHAP (Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol) using the MD5 (Message Digest type 5) encryption. CHAP MD5 is not compatible with Microsoft's standard implementation of CHAP, but a Microsoft server can be configured to support 'standard' MD5.
A Link is typically authenticated by one end, Air-Frame can be configured for mutual Authentication (where BOTH ends of the Link initiate and respond to Authentication requests). This provides an extra measure of security for vulnerable links.
For Links where it is vital to maintain security Air-Frame may be configured for re-authentication at user defined intervals. This guards against Link 'stealing' after establishment of a connection.
The Access Control List defines those Hosts (or Host ranges) that are permitted access to Router features. The access list may be further defined to allow access to any or any combination of features (Configuration, Monitoring and Reset/Load). In low security environments a Telnet password is used to deter and stop accidental access to the router.
