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.

The problems holding your business back

Today, we use two globally deployed namespaces, IP and DNS, to uniquely identify a host or service on the network. While they are well-designed tools, they’re being used to do much more than originally intended. The lack of provable host identities introduces weaknesses that are complex to overcome, and result in a broken trust model for IP networking.

A match made in heaven – unified networking and security

One of the fundamental flaws with the way IT networks are constructed today is that organizations view networking and security as two separate entities. Today of all days, Cupid would ask, “Where’s the love in that?” Rather, it is necessary to bind together(connect) and protect (secure) as one. At Tempered Networks, we offer a unified approach, creating a perfect marriage between networking and security that’s more secure, reliable, and flexible.
