It’s Happening Again…

Over the past month, we have seen two global ransomware outbreaks. The first, WannaCry, was stopped quickly because the creators were sloppy and didn’t secure the URL that the virus pointed to. All it took was a researcher to buy the URL and shut the outbreak down. If only all cyber-attacks could be stopped this easily.

The Host Identity Namespace: Welcome to Your Private Internet

I recently wrote about the Host Identity Protocol (HIP) and why it is so important for the future of the Internet. In this blog series, I go into greater detail on why I think Tempered Networks’ vision, and what our customers’ are now realizing is so game-changing.

What is the Host Identity Protocol and Why is it so Important?

I’ve spent over twenty years working in the technology world, specifically in networking, and for nearly all that time I was confronted with the limitations of IP networking. Since coming to work for Tempered Networks, however, I have discovered a world of networking without borders or boundaries. One where we can securely connect any two devices, anywhere in the world, no matter the network or connectivity medium, with the click of a mouse.

Internet 3.0: Welcome To The Future of Secure Networking

For most of us, it’s hard to imagine what networking would be like without complexity. Even something simple, like moving a printer, can take weeks of planning, provisioning and system updates just to get it from the fourth floor to the fifth. The number of man hours required to make the move almost costs more than the printer. It’s not sustainable. Why?

The Fundamental Flaw in TCP/IP

Having researched the history of the Internet and networking in general, I have a solid idea of how we arrived at the complex, vulnerable and expensive networking architecture we have today. Now I want to examine the fundamental flaw that has resided in TCP/IP since the protocol was first proposed in 1974. The use of the IP address for both location and identity.

Secure & Simple Cloud Integration and Peering

Organizations are increasingly taking advantage of cloud networking as a cost-effective way to increase ag
