Firewall On Chip Secures M2M Applications

SecureGAP, a firewall-on-a-chip technology, allows M2M devices to safely connect directly to the Internet. The technology, which resides on the CO2128 IP controller, safeguards vital proprietary information for application owners through security and data segregation. It serves as a gatekeeper and natural firewall between the host processor and the Internet. The CO2128 works as a coprocessor, offloading all security and communication components from the main processor. As a firewall between the host processor and the Internet, SecureGAP prevents intruders from tapping directly into the host processor. Maintaining a physical barrier between the Internet and the application as well as encrypting data using SSL3, the CO2128 ensures safe data transfers via 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, 10/100 Base-T LAN, GPRS, or dial-up connection. SecureGAP requires no annual fees and a complete set of low-level drivers, TCP/IP stack, upper layers protocols including TCP or UDP sockets, two listen sockets, a web server with two web sites, SMTP, and POP3 also come royalty free with the chip. The RoHS-compliant CO2128 operates over an industrial temperature range from -40°C to 85°C. CONNECT ONE SEMICONDUCTORS INC., San Jose, CA. (408) 572-5675.
