  • Fortress Technologies?

    Anyone in these forums ever heard of Fortress Technologies?.. Supposedly a "AIRTIGHT" Secured Wireless network.

    http://www.fortresstech.com/

    My school used it for a long time. It's very unsecure.. All I had to do to get Administrative rights was to restart explorer.exe, BTW. My school run's Novell Netware (Sad) Too. :) Anyways, They're really moronic. He he he, Peace out.

    The REALLY secure stuff, is made by a company called Harris.
    They will only sell you the gear if you are a Military/or 3 Letter
    Govt. Org./ Or are licensed by the NSA....

    All others need not apply...
    Stupid people should have to wear signs that just say, "I'm Stupid." That way you wouldn't rely on them, would you? You wouldn't ask them anything. It would be like, "Excuse me...oops...never mind, I didn't see your sign.

      Yes you are referring to SecNet 11 (http://www.govcomm.harris.com/secure...11Briefing.pdf).

      I would give my left nut to play around with those. The use a proprietary schema to encrypt everything, including the MAC Address transmission.

      I have wood just thinking about those.
      perl -e 'print pack(c5, (41*2), sqrt(7056), (unpack(c,H)-2), oct(115), 10)'

        Maybe you can get Harris to do a demo/descussion or something
        about this product at the next DC..

        Now that would be totally Kick-Ass...

        Just for Info: This Equip is super expensive, and you must get
        the Key loader (DTD) and keys from the NSA

        PCMCIA Card - $2500 Each
        AP - $1000
        Bridge - $1500

        Each AP/Bridge requires 1 PCMCIA card...

          I recall a powerpoint about how the packets are encrypted. Do you recall the link.

            Did a bit of browsing on the subject... and all I have to say is wow... Sierra supports many algorithms, and can be programmed with custom ones too... Baton, Saville/Padstone, accordion, firefly, DSS, enhanced firefly, DES (OFB,CFB,ECB), 3DES, and AES as a small start... 3 types of voice processing, 5 types of key management too.. I agree, would be fun to play with, but in order for it to be effective, you'd have to obtain a key from the one you may not want to have it, thus defeating the purpose.

                The fortress URL you posted... is NOT the Fortress your school is running, unless your school is a military academy with sensitive info, and an assload of wifi. Fortresstech is NOT the maker of Fortress101, the hunk of junk software that schools deploy. Fortresstech is the same group that put together software for the U.S. army's CAISI project, and has been found secure to gov't standards...
