Aruba Wireless Networks’ Aruba 5000 WLAN Security System Competitive Security Evaluation
22 November 2004
Aruba Wireless Networks commissioned The Tolly Group to evaluate its Aruba 5000 WLAN switch that combines 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet switching with stateful LAN-speed firewalling, VPN concentrator features and a variety of wireless security services.
Tolly Group engineers exposed the Aruba 5000 switch to three security scenarios to determine its effectiveness at securing communications between the switch and various access points (APs). The Aruba 5000 was subjected to a secure voice test, a variant of the “man-in-the-middle” attack, and wireless intrusion prevention scenario.
Aruba asked The Tolly Group to compare the security features/functions of the Aruba 5000 against the Airespace 4012 WLAN switch. Airespace threatened legal action if The Tolly Group tested its product without explicit permission which it ultimately declined to give. The Tolly Group did not test the Airespace 4012 but instead relied upon publicly available information and on-the-record Airespace comments to make comparisons between the products.
In every test instance, the Aruba 5000 demonstrated its security effectiveness. The Tolly Group also validated more than 20 key functions on the Aruba 5000 WLAN switch under its Tolly Verified certification program. Click the link at the bottom of the page to download the Test Summary document.
