PakSecured Linux is currently the only complete Policy Routing Operating System with a broad computing platform base. Based on the Linux OS, PakSecured Linux runs on all processor families capable of running the Linux kernel. Policy Routing encompasses Quality of Service (QoS), Advanced TCP/IP routing of IPv4 and IPv6, IPSec encryption and VPN structures, Bandwidth Allocation and Traffic Shaping, and Address Allocation features such as NAT and IP Masquerade. While these features are available independently in various products, PakSecured Linux implements the full range of Policy Routing. All of these features are integrated into a hardened OS distribution designed to operate in hostile network environments. PakSecured Linux has no desktop or user based functionality and is specifically targeted at servers with a need for high security, 24x7 uptime, and which are required to run without operator intervention. Coupling these needs with the flexibility and power of a complete Policy Routing structure puts PakSecured Linux into a unique niche.
Research studies on the future of corporate networks and the Internet point to the need to provide differentiated levels of service for the various data flows across the networks. Consolidation of many network traffic types onto the same infrastructure means that mission-critical applications share limited network resources with normal server data sharing, bandwidth intensive applications such as streaming video, and delay-sensitive applications such as VOIP (voice over IP). All of these network application data streams access the network differently, have varying priority requirements, and are targeted to independent subsets of the employees. This is the environment that Policy Routing was created to solve. Adding into this volatile mix the growing need for structured network security and you create the niche filled by PakSecured Linux.
