What kind of encryption does the Dominion KX II use?
The Dominion KX II uses industry-standard (and extremely secure) RC4 or AES encryption, both in its SSL communications as well as its own data stream. Literally no data is transmitted between remote clients and the Dominion KX II that is not completely secured by encryption.
Does the Dominion KX II support AES encryption as recommended by the US Government's NIST and FIPs standards?
The Dominion KX II utilizes the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption for added security.
AES is a US government approved cryptographic algorithm that is recommended by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in the FIPS Standard 197.
Does the Dominion KX II allow encryption of video data? Or does it only encrypt keyboard and mouse data?
Unlike competing solutions, which only encrypt keyboard and mouse data, the Dominion KX II does not compromise security; it allows encryption of keyboard, mouse and video data.
How does the Dominion KX II integrate with external authentication servers such as Active Directory, RADIUS, or LDAP?
Through a very simple configuration, the Dominion KX II can be set to forward all authentication requests to an external server such as LDAP, Active Directory, or RADIUS. For each authenticated user, the Dominion KX II receives the user group to which that user belongs from the authentication server. The Dominion KX II then determines the user's access permissions depending on the user group to which he or she belongs.
How are usernames and passwords stored?
Should the Dominion KX II's internal authentication capabilities be used, all sensitive information such as usernames and passwords are stored in an encrypted format. Literally no one, including Raritan Technical Support or Product Engineering departments, can retrieve those usernames and passwords.
Does the Dominion KX II support strong password?
Yes, the Dominion KX II has administrator-configurable, strong password checking to ensure that user-created passwords meet corporate and/or government standards and are resistant to brute force hacking.
If the Dominion KX II encryption mode is set to Auto, what level of encryption is achieved?
The encryption level that is autonegotiated is dependent on the browser in use.
