Elektron 2 released
PeriodikLabs has released Elektron 2, enhancing the server software that provides RADIUS/802.1x authentication services for Wi-Fi networks. The latest revision of Elektron features authentication domains, where users can define multiple sources of authentication based on a domain; enhanced authorization for policies that perform actions based upon groups, dates, and access points; and EAP-fast support for the latest Wi-Fi authentication protocols. The update also implements SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) -- enabling users to monitor a server using a vast array of management tools -- as well as a FIPS 140-2 Crypto module to ensure network authentication security. Elektron 2 is priced at $750, and requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later.
