Secure Connectivity via SSL / Kerberos

There are cases where you may want to encrypt data moving between users and applications hosted on IBM iSeries and AS/400 hosts. Ericom uses SSL and Kerberos encryption methods (Windows only) to secure such data transfers between clients and servers For an extensive overview of how SSL works, visit Juniper's site here.

Telnet (Terminal Network) protocol transfers with SSH-secure confidentiality and integrity

When a telnet connection to a server is made, credentials (e.g., username & password) are sent to the server in plain text and a text file containing one's vital security information is available for viewing. As a replacement for Telnet, SSH is used to securely access and execute commands on remote systems and for securely transferring files via encrypted communications. You can learn more about SSH here.
