Preliminary Information - Subject to change

SecureWrapper

Make Secure Connections (SSL) with Any TCP/IP application.

SecureWrapper can be used with any TCP connection. TCP Connections include, TELNET, NSVT, FTP, SMTP, and other application specific protocols. This includes, but is not limited to, ODBC, OLEDB, WS92, VisualLink, other terminal emulators, and other 3rd party applications.

SecureWrapper is a network tool used to provide a means to add security to a single application or group of applications communicating across a network.

SecureWrapper provides a smaller set of features than a VPN with much less overhead. You can tailor the applications protected without forcing all network connections to share the same VPN resource.

Use SecureWrapper where there is a need for secure communications and the source code needed to change either the client and server is unavailable.

SecureWrapper uses the same codebase as secure NSVT communications method of Secure92.


Comparison to OpenSSL Wrapper (stunnel)

The bits and bytes of the communications protocols are the same (based upon standards).

SecureWrapper differs in being built specifically for Windows (rather than for Unix with Windows an additional platform).

We offer simplified, GUI based, configuration. There are no confusing or cryptic command line options for the end-user.

SecureWrapper can be configured to prevent end users from making any changes that could reduce the level of protection. When configured as a server, there is no place for a end-user to change the pre-set configuration. As an application, SecureWrapper prompts the end-user for authentication credentials (username and password) then sits in the background until they log out.

SecureWrapper is supported where the OpenSSL Wrapper (stunnel) tools are open source.


Deployment Types

SecureWrapper may be installed as either a Windows service or application. As an application, the end user would provide authentication (username and password) after logging on to the PC. The service would be configured to store authentication information and allow any user of the PC to connect.

Sample Configuration

In the sample below, SecureWrapper would be installed on the PC. The host system (HP3000 in this case) would not have a NAT address mapping rendering it virtually inaccessible from outside the firewall. Using this configuration, client applications could access an HP3000 server applications using an SSL connections without modifications to either the client application or the server application. Additionally, local users would continue to have direct access to the HP3000 applications.

Sample Network Configuration

With SecureWrapper set to listen on Local Port 1570, the SSH Host set to 207.46.236.4, and the host address set to 192.168.0.188; any application running locally on the PC would be able to open a connection to 127.0.0.1:1570 that SecureWrapper would forward to the HP3000.
