Mac OS 10.4.3 Secures AES Compatibility

By VPN Tracker

Apple Computer – thank you for addressing our concern about OS X Tiger’s AES-192 and AES-256 compatibility.

With Apple’s release of Mac OS 10.4.3, VPN Tracker Pro and Server now are fully functional in regards to both of these high-encryption standards. So what does this mean for you, our VPN Tracker customers? If you are connecting to networks that deal with highly-sensitive data that needs to be under lock and key, you now have a secure method of doing so.

Also, if you are in need of an extra level of security, check out VPN Tracker’s support for both XAUTH and SecurID.

Here is a little side note about AES Security from Wikipedia.

    As of 2005, no successful attacks against AES have been recognised. The National Security Agency (NSA) reviewed all the AES finalists, including Rijndael, and stated that all of them were secure enough for US Government non-classified data. In June 2003, the US Government announced that AES may be used for classified information:
    “The design and strength of all key lengths of the AES algorithm (i.e., 128, 192 and 256) are sufficient to protect classified information up to the SECRET level. TOP SECRET information will require use of either the 192 or 256 key lengths. The implementation of AES in products intended to protect national security systems and/or information must be reviewed and certified by NSA prior to their acquisition and use.”

So we’d like to invite you again to test our latest beta version and send us any feedback that comes to your mind. And if the issue you have reported to us is not fixed in this version, don’t worry, we are most likely already working on it.
