Hi Elizabeth thanks for the link. It seems that lots of similar products and key ideas are available over net. But when it comes to implementation or productization of technology, meeting the security specification/requirements may not be feasible always.
Hi, Mydesign, thanks for your comment. I don't know all the specifics of the product but here is the web page with information about it for your reference: http://www.infoblox.com/products/network-automation/security-device-controller
I am sure you will find more info there about security, as you're right, it is a key concern, and a key design goal of this product.
Elizabeth, thanks for the details of this particular product. Security is a main concern, especially in networked environment and cloud eco system. How the security aspects are addressed in this product? Any idea, I mean about the communication layer protocols and encryption technology.
As more and more diverse devices become connected to the network, technology like this is going to be important to manage and secure it all. This is especially becoming more critical to areas like manufacturing, which are moving to streamline and adopt a single protocol from the factory floor to the back office to the field.
The first Tacoma Narrows Bridge was a Washington State suspension bridge that opened in 1940 and spanned the Tacoma Narrows strait of Puget Sound between Tacoma and the Kitsap Peninsula. It opened to traffic on July 1, 1940, and dramatically collapsed into Puget Sound on November 7, just four months after it opened.
Noting that we now live in an era of “confusion and ill-conceived stuff,” Ammunition design studio founder Robert Brunner, speaking at Gigaom Roadmap, said that by adding connectivity to everything and its mother, we aren't necessarily doing ourselves any favors, with many ‘things’ just fine in their unconnected state.
