The problems holding your business back
Today, we use two globally deployed namespaces, IP and DNS, to uniquely identify a host or service on the network. While they are well-designed tools, they’re being used to do much more than originally intended. The lack of provable host identities introduces weaknesses that are complex to overcome, and result in a broken trust model for IP networking.
Challenges surrounding IP addressing:
- TCP/IP was not designed for mobility; changing a host address is not possible without breaking transport layer connections.
- Authentication of the host is not supported, spoofing of source IP is a common problem.
- Many machines and devices are manufactured with hard-coded IP addresses, resulting in conflicts and an inflexible networking architecture.
Identity-Defined Networking (IDN) - The Way Forward
Tempered Networks Identity-Defined Networking solution solves the problem of IP conflicts and device mobility. By introducing a third namespace, the Host Identity Namespace (HIN), our customers now have a modern networking architecture that enables global IP mobility. The HIN fixes the broken trust model of IP networking and is backwards compatible and complimentary to the current two namespaces deployed globally for hosts. With an identity-first architecture, connecting any device over separate networks across physical, virtual, and cloud domains, is now possible.
