  Bio-NetGuard TM

Wifi LAN access control with fingerprint

Enterprises have been concerned about the security of WiFi networks.  Weak user authentication and weak encryption in the WEP standard led many IT security managers to avoid WiFi.

The new WPA / WPA 2.0 security standards implemented in today’s wireless access point have proven to be cryptographically strong enough to solve the encryption problem.  This means that data in transit over WPA / WPA 2.0 -secured networks cannot be deciphered.  However, many organizations ignore the second requirement for secure networks strong user authentication. 

Bio-NetGuard solves the user authentication issue by providing a RADIUS server which is extended and enhanced with fingerprint matching to provide a secure, convenient and cost-effective way to authenticate users on WPA / WPA 2.0 -secured WLANs.  Bio-NetGuard complements the strong cryptography of WPA / WPA 2.0 with strong user authentication to enable enterprise-class security for WiFi networks.   Bio-NetGuard provides fingerprint-based access control to the enterprise network at the very first point of contact, the WiFi access point. 

Bio-NetGuard is a DSP-based, fully-contained RADIUS authentication device that works with off-the-shelf WPA / WPA 2.0 - RADIUS compliant access points and adapter cards.  It is equipped with its own storage, processor and memory to handle the entire authentication process in a rapid manner.  Bio-NetGuard communicates with clients in a secure mode.

Bio-NetGuard prevents unauthorized users from accessing a WiFi Network.  With Bio-NetGuard, you know who’s using your WiFi.
