ClearBox Enterprise RADIUS Server 2.3
ClearBox Enterprise RADIUS Server 2.3 Ranking & Summary
ClearBox Enterprise RADIUS Server 2.3 description
ClearBox Enterprise RADIUS Server 2.3 offers you a powerful program that provides the strongest available Wi-Fi network security. The product enables centralized authentication and administration for thousands and even millions of entities. In addition, it offers roaming and distributed authentication and accounting through its ability to proxy requests to other servers regardless of the originating clients location.
ClearBox Enterprise RADIUS Server is an affordable and easy to configure product, letting you control access to a wireless network, be it a home network, commercial hotspot network or an enterprise-wide network. In the simplest case you click just four times, input one IP address and one password and the system is ready to restrict access to your network. Eliminate WPA pre-shared keys and create a simple password authentication, which is securely protected by WPA/WPA2. The centralized user database can be used by many access points, making it easy to support a network and its users.
ClearBox can authenticate with LDAP directories (for example, MS Active Directory, OpenLDAP), Remote RADIUS servers, including token servers with built-in RADIUS servers, Windows NT/2000/2003 Active Directory domains, workgroups and groups, MS SQL Server, MS Access, MySQL, Oracle, PostreSQL and other ODBC and OLE DB compliant data sources. For Wi-Fi authentication, the product supports IEEE 802.1x authentication providing secure and reliable authentication services in WEP/WPA/WPA2 protected wireless networks. It supports all protocols supported by Windows wireless clients (Windows XP SP2, Windows Vista) - PEAP for password-based access and EAP-TLS for digital certificates based access and EAP-TLS for digital certificates based access.
- Speed and Performance: ClearBox Server is a 32-bit multi-threaded application with low CPU & RAM usage. It provides excellent performance and reliability on all Windows platforms and makes use of your multi-processor equipment.
- High Compatibility: ClearBox is fully compatible with all relevant RADIUS RFCs (2865, 2866, 2869, 3579, and 3580). It supports all types of the RADIUS attributes and the Vendor-Specific Attributes, including non-standard attribute ID's, length fields, subfields, and much more. (RFCs 2548, 2867, 2868, 2869, 3162, and 4679). This means that ClearBox and your network equipment will always speak a common language, RADIUS.
- Multiple Independent Policies: This feature allows ClearBox Server to perform various authentication, authorization, and accounting functions in any combination based on the defined rules. ClearBox can select a proper method
- by a user name;
- by a RADIUS client address;
- by a set of attribute matches (such as attribute presence, absence, equality, etc.).
- This capability provides a flexible realm selection. Suppose you need to handle packets in some way depending on DNIS represented by Called-Station-ID. You are able to configure real rules so that a request message will be handled by different realms if it differs in one attribute value!
- Multiple Data Sources Support : Allows using concurrently different databases for different purposes. Currently ClearBox support MS SQL Server, MS Access, MySQL, Oracle and any SQL-based DBMS's equipped with ODBC drivers or OLE DB providers.
- Advanced RADIUS Proxy Server: ClearBox Server can act both as a target server serving RADIUS client requests and as a proxy server forwarding request to remote RADIUS servers. ClearBox performs transparent translation to pass properly passwords and message authenticators; uses list of remote servers to create fault-tolerant, low-risc solutions. ClearBox switches to another server from the list if it's not responding; adds, alters or omits attributes in packets transferred between ClearBox and a remote RADIUS server; allows to both forward and store locally accounting requests.
- These capabilities of ClearBox are essential for routing request to the servers of other service providers or to the remote enterprise servers which can authenticate a foreign user. Similar in concept to the cellular phone industry, this roaming ability allows service providers covering complementary territories to expand their coverage through service exchange deals.
- Authentication Server: ClearBox supports authentication methods both for wired authentication (PAP, CHAP, MS-CHAP, MS-CHAPv2) and for wireless (PEAP, EAP-TLS).
- Any realm created within ClearBox can be configured to authenticate user names and passwords against several security databases.
- Remote RADIUS server. The benefits of using this method are described above.
- LDAP server. It may be any directory service, like MS Active Directory or OpenLDAP, supporting LDAP interface. ClearBox supports both directories storing user password encrypted or in clear text.
- Windows NT/2000 domains, groups and workstations. ClearBox can make use of your domain infrastructure and existing user accounts database. You can specify a domain (including trusted domains) or a stand-alone workstation where Active Directory is run or NT SAM database resides. Besides, you may include additional checks for group membership. Both local and global domain groups are supported. Advanced verifications may be involved to gain deeper access control: ClearBox can checks user profiles to see if they are not disabled or expired, if a user has dial-in permission turned on.
- SQL-compliant data source (supported databases and servers and listed earlier). ClearBox offers outstanding flexibility in authenticating against SQL databases. Besides supporting data sources, listed above, ClearBox allows you to specify two types of database queries:
- Retrieve a password for the given user and realm name via a SQL query
- Validate PAP password sent in a request packet for a given user and his realm.
- Both types of query allow the authentication against existing and newly-created database table structures, no database redesign is necessary.
- It's now possible to take a user name for authentication from any RADIUS attribute present in the access request packet, enabling such features as ANI authentication.
- Double-Logon Prevention: ClearBox includes a built-in state server, which keeps track of user sessions in progress. This feature allows one to limit the number of simultaneous logins by the user. Its possible to limit this number for a whole realm or for a particular user.
Besides, multiple state servers are supported, and they can be adjusted for any exiting database tables.
- Flexible Authorization Policies: ClearBox extends RADIUS authentication with extra authorization policies:
- Rejects a request if it contains an attribute from the Black ListVarious policies can be constructed with the help of this list. For example, Calling-Station-ID attribute can be added to block users who dial in from a particular phone number.
- Checks that a request should contain mandatory attributes from the Check List. A variety of rules could be enforced by including appropriate attributes in the Check List. Only certain users might be permitted to use ISDN connections, or dial in to a particular NAS. Or, Caller ID could be used to validate a user against a list of legal originating phone numbers.
- On successful authentication, ClearBox adds attributes defined in the Response List. By including appropriate attributes in the Response List, a variety of connection policies may be applied. Specific users can be assigned particular IP addresses or IPX network numbers, IP header compression can be turned on or off, or a time limit can be assigned to the connection. The lists described may contain plain attributes defined explicitly by you or may be retrieved by queries to a database source. Thus you may use static, unconditional attributes for all users in the realm, and attributes retrieved from a database specific for particular users.
- Billing Systems Integration: ClearBox Server, being a flexible AAA solution, can be easily integrated with almost all billing systems capable of using RADIUS servers for authentication.
ClearBox is integrated with three billing systems:
- DTH Billing and Customer Management by DTH Software. The system is suitable for ISP and VoIP billing. It boasts many nice features like customizable reporting, email or paper bills, electronic funds transfer, web portals, collections processing, service orders and much more.
- Platypus Billing System by Boardtown Corporation, a complete Windows client-server tool designed for Internet and Application service providers, IP Billing, as well as wireless providers.
- Advanced ISP Billing by AdvancedISPBilling.com, effective and highly customizable ISP billing system for small to large ISPs at very low cost. It offers simple day to day operations, superb client management, a whole suite of useful managerial reports, seamless system administration and much more.
- Accounting Server: ClearBox has all capabilities for reliable realm-time accounting which is extremely necessary for your business. You may combine several options of accounting logging for redundancy or flexible accounting management:
- Forwarding accounting data to a remote RADIUS server. ClearBox can be configured to forward accounting packets with accounting status types specified to a remote RADIUS accounting server, both forward a request and log it locally or log it only locally with one of the methods listed further.
- Logging to a SQL database. The most important and powerful method, it allows to store all information about connections in your SQL database. You may specify your own SQL query or simply bind RADIUS attributes to database table fields. Thus ClearBox can make use of your existing billing or account management system.
- Logging accounting data to a file in Livingston format. Although it's not an official standard, Livingston format is widely used. You may use any available reporting tool to produce usage and billing reports from these ClearBox logs. Besides specifying log file name you may select how often the server performs rollover to a new file (hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, on log file size limit).
- Logging accounting data to a file in CSV (comma-separated-values) format. This may be useful for you as CSV logs may be imported easily into any spreadsheet or a database table. Besides specifying log file name you may select how often the server will rollover to a new file (hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, on log file size limit). You may define a filter for all these methods: what accounting status types should be processed (e.g. "connection stop" records) and what should be skipped. All methods can be filtered independently.
- Processor: Pentium II or higher
- Memory: 256 MB or higher
- OS: Windows 2000/XP/2003
- Connectivity: TCP/IP installed and configured
- Hard disk capacity: 8 MB of free space
