e-Lock Aims to Unlock Security Secrets

Frontier Technologies launched e-Lock this week, a new security site that provides an array of tools for security professionals and e-commerce developers.

"eLock.com is a composite of the most crucial information, security knowledge and software resources designed for those involved with integrating and implementing IPSec VPN (IP Security Virtual Public Network), public key infrastructure (PKI), digital signature, and other key information security technologies," said Prakash Ambegaonkar, chairman and CEO of Frontier.

The Security FAQ section of eLock.com provides information on such topics as Cryptography Systems, Keys and Certificates, Secure Operations, e-Sign, and Key and Certificate Managers. Visitors to the site may also post to the eLock.com Webmaster.

White papers currently available at eLock.com include: Public Key Encryption Systems--A Primer; Public Key Distribution Using Directory Services; and Security Architecture. In addition, a security Glossary is available with links to related security topics and additional resources that may be of interest.

eLock.com also offers information and beta versions of the soon-to-be released e-Lock Toolkit from Frontier Technologies. The e-Lock Toolkit is comprised of the e-Lock Secure Messaging Toolkit, the e-Lock PKI Client Toolkit, and the e-Lock VPN Toolkit. All of the e-Lock Toolkits are standards-based and can easily be integrated with the e-Lock Public Key Infrastructure (PKI).

The Downloads section of eLock.com provides trial software applications designed to allow users to immediately protect their digital corporate wealth.
