I-Tracing and Qosmos Partner to Protect Sensitive Operator Data

 I-Tracing integrates Qosmos network intelligence technology to deliver a network-centric solution protecting access to personal data in telecom operator databases 


Paris, November 24th, 2008 - Qosmos, the industry leader in network information extraction, and I-Tracing, a major IT consulting and engineering company specialized in data traceability, have joined forces to protect access to telecom operators’ sensitive data.


Qosmos and I-Tracing’s joint Data Theft Prevention solution enables telecom operators’ information security, regulatory compliance and anti-fraud departments to collect, analyze and store database access records in real time, and generate reliable reports and alerts for effective protection of sensitive subscriber data. The ready-to-use solution combines Qosmos’ ixMachine range of network-based information extraction appliances with I-Tracing’s information processing and management applications.


Telecom operators’ databases contain private customer information of a highly sensitive nature, ranging from subscriber phone numbers and addresses, to private bank details, call history and geo-localization data. Preventing the theft or misuse of this confidential information is critical both financially and legally, but also in terms of reputation. Data protection represents, therefore both a strategic and technical challenge for operators, who must implement a secure and comprehensive tracking system across the various access points to their subscriber databases: from internal customer relations and technical support teams, to outsourced customer care services.


We have chosen to integrate Qosmos’ information extraction technology in our Data Protection and Security solution portfolio for its unique ability to collect detailed and reliable database access records directly from operator networks. This network-based approach offers carriers complete visibility – in real time – into who is accessing what, when and how, guaranteeing immediate detection and response in the case of a breach. It also complies with legal obligations to track access to personal data,” explained Théodore-Michel Vrangos, Co-Founder and President of I-Tracing.


Installed in passive transparent mode on the operator network, the Qosmos/I-Tracing solution monitors network traffic in real time, and extracts complete and detailed access records for all intranet and web-based applications, whether they be standard or custom, and whatever network protocol is used (Telnet, http, etc.). The solution is entirely configurable by the operator to meet specific data protection and regulatory compliance requirements, and can be easily integrated into the operator’s network without impacting existing applications or subscriber service platforms.


The significant synergy between I-Tracing’s technical expertise and Qosmos technology offers telecom operators a very fine-grained understanding of the information in transit on their networks, and provides them with network-centric tools specially designed to protect access to their sensitive data,” commented Thibaut Bechetoille, CEO of Qosmos.

Juniper Networks Introduces Dynamic Services Architecture to Accelerate New Service Deployments for Enterprises and Service Providers

New Dynamic Services Architecture “Changes the Game” in Networking; Fuels Innovation and Helps Drive a Sustainable Competitive Advantage 


SUNNYVALE, Calif. – September 15, 2008 – Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR), the leader in high-performance networking, is changing the game in networking with the introduction of the industry’s first Juniper Networks Dynamic Services Architecture designed to help high-performance businesses tightly align rapidly changing business requirements with network technology investments to accelerate new service deployments. The Dynamic Services Architecture is the foundation on which the newly announced Juniper Networks SRX dynamic services gateways (see today’s related announcement) are built, offering an extensible “no compromise” solution to scaling integrated services and network capabilities on a single architecture. This enables enterprises, service providers and public sector agencies to quickly and cost-effectively take advantage of new service opportunities, address changing business requirements, and deliver superior user experiences. 


High-performance businesses view the network as critical for taking advantage of dynamic service and business models which fuel innovation. As these businesses continue to massively scale their networks to support advanced applications and services, they can no longer afford the service integration and performance tradeoffs associated with administering and managing legacy network infrastructure. Innovative businesses require a dynamic network infrastructure that is fast, reliable and secure, and that paves the path toward seizing new opportunities. These challenges include keeping pace with an escalating and evolving security threat landscape, which remains a leading source of network downtime and slow service; contending with an inability to quickly scale networks to deliver applications and support thousands to millions of users; and the continuing operational inefficiencies that plague legacy network infrastructure, including the rising cost, complexity and inability to adapt to changing requirements.   


“Racks of service specific appliances and blades along with a multitude of operating systems and management interfaces create a level of network complexity that introduces latency and inhibits new service deployments,” said Abner Germanow, director, Enterprise Networks, IDC. “A service architecture that enables businesses to scale in all dimensions dynamically with virtually ‘any’ service will quickly meet the business requirements and streamline investment decisions.” 


“Maximizing the value of services and applications while simultaneously minimizing costs is critical for service providers to drive revenues,” said Ray Mota, chief research officer, Synergy Research Group. “There is a fundamental requirement for a high-performance scalable network architecture that delivers performance, reliability and security at scale to accelerate new service deployment.” 


Continued Innovation: Dynamic Services Delivery Technology


As the leader in high-performance networking, Juniper uniquely understands today’s challenges for enterprises and service providers and continues to innovate, to design, develop and deliver solutions that offer greater choice and control in quickly meeting changing requirements. The Dynamic Services Architecture includes Juniper’s dedicated dual management engine and purpose-built, carrier-class terabit speed fabric that allows for massive scale of Ethernet ports and services processing independently. The new architecture delivers the ability to readily “turn-on” a wide range of services, including stateful firewall, Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), Distributed Denial of Service (DDos/DoS) protection, Network Address Translation (NAT), dynamic routing, and Quality of Service (QoS). This ability greatly accelerates application and service deployments. The Dynamic Services Architecture serves as the framework for the evolution of networking, which will not only change the way businesses operate, but also improve how networks are architected.  


“Juniper continues to invest in the innovation necessary to deliver the high-performance network infrastructure that matters most to high-performance businesses,” said Mark Bauhaus, executive vice president and general manager, Services Layer Technologies, Juniper Networks. “Escalating security and performance demands magnify the need for a dynamic approach that allocates and maximizes the utilization of necessary security and network resources, without compromising network performance. Juniper is the first to deliver on a technology that builds upon a Dynamic Services Architecture, changing the game in the provisioning of high-performance security and networking services to accelerate the deployment of advanced business and consumer services and applications, all while reducing cost, complexity and risk.”

Nominum Leapfrogs Industry Response to DNS Vulnerability with New Security Package

Nominum, the leading provider of network naming and addressing technologies, today announced the availability of a comprehensive new security release for its Vantio caching DNS server platform.  The latest Vantio software release provides multi-layer intelligent defenses that defeat DNS cache poisoning and other attacks, including the recently publicized Kaminsky vulnerability.  By offering built-in defense-in-depth, the Nominum solution far surpasses the recently released industry standard UDP Source Port Randomization (UDP SPR).  In fact, Vantio’s new defenses negate the brute force advantage attackers gained with the latest DNS cache poisoning vulnerability.   “Literally one day after details of the Kaminsky cache poisoning attack were revealed, UDP Source Port Randomization was defeated in 10 hours by security researchers using brute-force spoofed responses,” said Dr. Paul Mockapetris, Chairman and Chief Scientist at Nominum and inventor of the DNS.  “Nominum’s multi-layered approach eliminates the risk of a successful attack.” Key benefits of new Vantio DNS security features:



  • Resists and stops all forms of cache poisoning attacks

  • Defends automatically against query response spoofing and takes attackers out of loop

  • Prevents hijacking of subscriber traffic, or “pharming” attacks

  • Identifies perpetrators and records attack attempts

  • Provides protection in Enterprise and Service Provider networks that use network address translation (NAT), which can undermine UDP SPR (NAT devices include server load balancers and firewalls)

  • Reduces the chance of poisoning answers for valuable domains (www.mybank.com) to zero


 Protection Well Beyond the Industry Response


Nominum and its customers were instrumental in implementing and deploying UDP SPR as part of an industry-wide response to the cache poisoning threat. This feature offered immediate protection to over 120 million broadband subscribers supported by Nominum DNS servers at nearly one hundred carriers and ISPs (click here for a partial list of Nominum’s key customers). UDP source port randomization is only a first-step response to the new vulnerability, and network operators need additional deterministic defenses to address important exploits. Cache poisoning attacks rely on many techniques, and response spoofing is only one of them. UDP source port randomization is designed to mitigate risk of spoofing, but is not effective against a determined attacker or other forms of attacks. Response spoofing can be easily subverted when more network resources are available to an attacker that allow for sending many spoofed responses.  Nominum’s new defenses are critical to ensuring the attacker does not succeed.  ”Layered defenses in the DNS system are an effective way to address serious attack scenarios that aren’t covered by UDP Source Port Randomization alone,” said Dan Kaminsky, the security researcher who discovered the latest DNS vulnerability. “As new DNS vulnerabilities are discovered, a layered approach such as Nominum’s will help in ensuring ongoing Internet security.” Vantio features the following four security layers with key security features highlighted: 



  • Deterrence Layer: Includes Nominum’s leading UDP Source Port Randomization implementation, the recommended industry response to the Kaminsky threat

  • Defense Layer: Incorporates Nominum’s “Detect and Defend” capability to detect spoofing attempts and automatically switch the resolution to a secure connection in response to an attack attempt.

  • Resistance Layer: Employs Query Response Screening with a set of features that intelligently screen DNS answers to ensure malicious data in DNS responses is not used to answer valid user queries

  • Remediation Layer: Sends alerts when an attack is under way and incorporates a new feature that records the attack, allowing the attacker to be identified, and real-time remedial action to be taken by the network operator. 


 “Layered security is the only way to defend against the emerging threats to the Internet,” said Tom Tovar, CEO of Nominum. “Our customers, the largest networks in the world, have an obligation to deliver the highest-level of security in delivering Internet service to consumer, enterprise and government users. Nominum’s new software release ensures that our customers can meet that obligation immediately and completely.”


 Pricing and Availability


The new Vantio release is generally available as standard software purchase for carriers, large enterprise and government customers.  For more information regarding Nominum’s DNS platforms and background on the company, visit www.nominum.com.
