Mocana Corporation Announces Updates to its Nanocrypto(TM) Embedded Security Engine Software
Oct 16 13
Mocana Corporation announced an update to its NanoCrypto(TM) embedded security engine software that removes the Dual Elliptic Curve Deterministic Random Bit Generator (Dual_EC_DRBG) algorithm, an algorithm that was previously promoted as a cryptographically secure key generation method by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Mocana's action is the result of recent Edward Snowden document revelations that the Dual_EC_DRBG algorithm contains a vulnerability that likely enables US intelligence agencies to easily decrypt communications protected with the algorithm. The algorithm was designated as a standard (SP 800-90A) by NIST in 2006, at least in part because of endorsement and promotion by the NSA. The Dual_EC_DRBG algorithm was one of three random number generators made available to developers in the previous versions of the NanoCrypto product. Mocana's NanoCrypto software is one of the world's most popular security engines for cellular handset makers and embedded device manufacturers of all kinds, with tens of millions of installations worldwide.
Mocana Corporation Announces New Version of Mocana Mobile App Protection Solution Secures iOS 7, Android Apps
Oct 3 13
Mocana Corporation announced an enhanced version of its Mobile App Protection(TM) (MAP(TM)) solution, the first commercially available app wrapping security solution for iOS 7 apps. The new MAP version 2.5.6 enables enterprises to add strong security features to iOS 7 apps in seconds, and enhances Mocana's Secure Enterprise Browser with additional configurability and single sign-on (SSO) capabilities. These features secure enterprise apps and data more effectively than competing approaches, especially when a device is jailbroken or infected with malware. In addition to SSO, MAP version 2.5.6 enhances secure mobile browsing with support for government Suite B algorithms and expanded VPN gateway interoperability with additional RFC support. These enhancements help enterprises provide seamless access to sensitive data across all of their Android(TM) and iOS devices, even those not managed by a mobile device management (MDM) solution. New MAP capabilities are deployed without requiring enterprise IT to write a single line of code, integrate an SDK, or be a security expert. iOS 7 apps and their data are vulnerable when a device is jailbroken because those apps rely on a system-level keychain and communications stack. MAP wraps its own keychain and TCP/IP stack directly into enterprise apps, making them much tougher to crack. Furthermore, MAP's app wrapping enables true per app VPNs, which go beyond iOS 7's built-in capabilities. Per app VPNs enable apps to launch separate, simultaneous encrypted tunnels that terminate at the individual app instead of at the device perimeter. The secure enterprise browser in MAP version 2.5.6 can also be used with Android devices. In addition to introducing SSO and customization, MAP's robust security features include FIPS 140-2 data-at-rest encryption, per app VPN capability, copy/paste protections, and data wipe. With this latest version of MAP, enterprises can easily balance browser functionality, such as disabling external sites, with browser security. Enterprises can deploy the browser across an extended enterprise in a kiosk mode, where it is pinned to a single site, or they can customize the browser to provide one-click access to multiple web apps and intranet sites for employees. The capabilities in MAP 2.5.6 enable enterprises to give employees and partners access to sensitive enterprise content on networks, Sharepoint servers, corporate intranet sites, web apps, and portals in just minutes, while still protecting data. Enterprises can securely mobilize sensitive internal data, even to devices not managed on their MDM solution.
