Deep Packet Inspection in Telecommunication

Cubro DPI Approach for Telecommunication
Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) is a technology that enables the network owner to analyse internet traffic, through the network, in real-time and to differentiate them according to their payload. DPI is often used for understanding the performance or behaviour of subscribers, which applications they use, how often etc. This helps operators to focus on improving service for important applications.

Security Hygiene for Remote Workers: Part 4

Security hygiene for remote workers part 3
In the previous installment we secured our Wi-Fi and discussed segmenting our network to the best of our ability. All this work will be for naught, however, if we allow malicious software in through our own actions. In this final installment we will examine user behaviour and review known avenues of exploits relative to the coronavirus outbreak.

Security Hygiene for Remote Workers: Part 3

The Wireless Network and Segmentation
In this section, we will turn our attention to the wireless portion of the home network because restricting access to our network from the outside world does little good if a bad actor can gain access to our LAN. When setting up our Wi-Fi we absolutely want to be using WPA2 with PSK at a minimum (That’s Wireless Protected Access 2 with Pre-Shared Key).

Introducing the new ‘Bitwise Masking’ on Advanced NPBs

Product Update
From software version V2.0R18 onwards the Cubro G5 series of Advanced Packet Broker (EXA32100 and EXA48600) supports IPv6 with bitmask filtering. Up to now the G5 units supported already IPv6 “subnet” filtering via prefix. The new IPv6 bitmask filtering further enhances the filtering capabilities of the G5 units and allows to filter out dedicated IPv6 address ranges that are not possible via standard prefix filtering.

Security Hygiene for Remote Workers – Part 1

With the spread of the SARS-COV-2 virus, responsible for COVID-19, an unprecedented number of people have found themselves working remotely. This brings a lot of new challenges to bear, not the least of which is simply putting together a workspace in the home. Unfortunately, a remote worker’s considerations shouldn’t end at simply gathering the tools to work remotely. It is very important during this time to be conscious of security practices regarding your computing habits and home network.
