AES encryption of 128 to 258-bits ensures information within Lantronix's SecureBox can be securely accessed and transmitted over the network and Internet.





Using a method called serial tunneling, SecureBox encrypts and encapsulates serial data into packets and transports it over Ethernet. Using two device servers connected by a network, secure virtual serial connections can be extended across a facility or around the world.



Lantronix's approach to secure communications is reportedly transparent to attached devices and software. There is no need to change work methods or develop special software to encrypt/decrypt information over the network.

In modem emulation mode, the SDS2100 is used to replace dial-up modems. The unit accepts modem AT commands on the serial port and establishes a secure network connection to the end device, eliminating dedicated modems and phone lines.

Flash memory enables maintenance-free, non-volatile storage of Web pages, and facilitates future system-software upgrades.
