Ultra Electronics X-Kryptor Confidential
Mobile and Remote working
The Ultra Electronics AEP X-Kryptor Confidential (XKC) solution provides IP VPN capability to enable remote access over the internet for "UK CONFIDENTIAL" networks (existing customer networks) and OFFICIAL tier (new customer networks). The personal encryption device connects to a client PC via USB. The solution provides both the network encryption and device separation required when connecting devices to untrusted networks. The device is powered entirely by the client PC and will transfer data at up to 7 Mbps.
The XKC solution comes in two versions, XKC CONTROLLED and XKC SMART. Each version is designed to provide the maximum level of control and security to meet customer requirements.
To prevent users from using the device in non-approved environments, the device is pre-populated with up to 5 Wi-Fi hotspot SSID and password paired combinations, chosen and configured by system admin staff.
When activated the XKC will automatically search for the approved SSID and register the device to the Wi-Fi network. The XKC cannot be used to connect to Wi-Fi hotspots not approved by system admin staff.
The XKC SMART allows the user to configure a secure Wi-Fi connection in any location where a Wi-Fi hotspot is available. The XKC SMART is also compatible with captive portals where user authentication or pre-payment must be made before connection and this is achieved securely using any Wi-Fi enabled smartphone or tablet.
This feature is provided by an on-board interface to authenticate any publicly available Wi-Fi Internet access from outside the secure zone. XKC SMART removes the 5 paired SSID/Password restriction imposed with the CONTROLLED version.
For existing customers with the standard XKC CONTROLLED, the SMART functionality is provided by the purchase of a software upgrade and USB hub.
