Unisys has moved to test its security tool offering through the ClearPath operating system in an effort to help customers secure data being transmitted to outside environments.
A Roseville, Minn.-based engineering team sought to examine how the Unisys Stealth system works to encrypt communications between ClearPath Dorado platforms and Stealth endpoint servers, writes Glen Newton, consulting software engineer of ClearPath OS 2200 security at Unisys.
The company performed the test for customers to secure network traffic by using the Secure Sockets Layer and Transport Layer Security encryption tools.
Engineers ran encrypted connections through a local area network in Roseville for traffic to move between the appliances and Stealth servers.
A network interface controller on a ClearPath partition also connected to two Stealth appliances through a switch and another NIC encrypted link to the LAN.
Four LAN-connected Stealth endpoint servers ran three different Windows levels on the other end of the traffic.
