DataChannel, Inc. this week announced that it has incorporated eXtensible Security Architecture (XSA) into DataChannel RIO, its flagship product.
DataChannel RIO provides developers with a framework they can use to create "two-way portals" on intranets and extranets. XSA embedded within DataChannel RIO enables DataChannel RIO users with a secure framework for integrating business-to-business and e-commerce applications with other information systems.
In its current release, DataChannel RIO utilizes names and passwords from Windows NT domains as part of its security functions. With the incorporation of XSA capabilities, DataChannel now includes support for fully authenticated user sessions across standard security interfaces such as X.509, ADSI, and LDAP. The company believes that "DataChannel RIO will leverage existing security systems, which will save businesses considerable development time and money, as well as greatly reduce support costs in general."
DataChannel RIO with its upcoming XSA extensions will provide a secure method of automating client-server/server-to-server transactions using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). Businesses can then enable their customers to securely access critical data via the Web.
