The invention may be incorporated into an intermediate system, into intermediate system software, or into applications specific integrated circuits designed for use in an intermediate system.
When a client attempts to log into the primary system, the intermediate system initially verifies the client's intermediate system access rights (104).
Secure end-to-end connections are established as separate multiple secure connections (11,13), illustratively between a first system (10) and an intermediate system (12) and between a second system (14) and an intermediate system (12).
An intermediate system provides remote clients with access to a primary system.
Next, the intermediate system sends the PSCI to the client's primary system for further authentication (106).
Management operations addressing managed objects not recognized, or not administrated, by the receiving mediating managed system are routed to another mediating managed system.
A key identifier specifies an authentication protocol and an authentication key for use in the authentication of intermediate-system to intermediate-system (IS-IS) protocol data units.
The intermediary system makes a direct transfer of source CAD data to target CAD data.
The invention provides a middle-ground between the stateful Intserv and the stateless SCORE architectures.
The invention also relates to a mediating managed system including a routing functionality.
Client information associated with the client device is also stored by the intermediary system.
The IS (60) then does not transmit packets to said ES (50) when the ES (50) has indicated it does not wish to receive the packets.
