AllLinuxDevices: Technical Bulletin: Lineo Extends SecureEdge VPN Router

Mar 15, 2001, 17:06 (0 Talkback[s])

"Lineo has extended the SecureEdge VPN Router, a platform for OEMs to rapidly produce powerful and secure Internet appliances, with the addition of RADIUS and TACACS+."

"All of the ColdFire Family and x86 variants of the SecureEdge, using the popular uClinux operating system, now support the RADIUS and TACACS+ protocols. These are the two most widely used protocols, particularly by ISPs, for providing centralized AAA (authentication, authorization, and accounting). Adding this support involved creating two plug-ins for pppd; thus, anything using pppd can use RADIUS and TACACS+ such as Lineo's PoPToP PPTP and PPP dial-in."
