Odyssey Access Client Overview:
As the demand to enable users to work from anywhere, at anytime increases, so does the need for secure network accessibility and robust authentication. Mobility drives the need to harness user and device data to control network access and to ensure secure, appropriate network connectivity. Juniper Networks Odyssey Access Client 802.1X access clients/supplicants ensure the privacy and integrity of user credentials and network data through their robust authentication and data security. OAC is quickly deployed and can be managed enterprise-wide for the lowest TCO. OAC seamlessly integrates with Juniper’s standards-based network access control (NAC) solution, Unified Access Control to supply dynamic, comprehensive access control. OAC delivers total control over secure, safe, and appropriate enterprise network connectivity, regardless of access method, allowing the consistent enforcement of organizational security policies for all users.
Juniper Networks Odyssey Access Client is a family of standards-based, enterprise-class 802.1X clients or supplicants built explicitly for use by enterprises and government agencies. OAC delivers comprehensive support for the advanced protocols required for secure network access. It provides robust security for both wired and wireless networks, fully ensuring the safety and integrity of user credentials and transmitted data. OAC secures user authentication and network connectivity, ensuring that users connect to the appropriate network in the appropriate manner, that login credentials are not compromised, and that user and device credentials and transmitted data remain secure and private.
Deploying and managing OAC enterprise-wide is quick and easy, lowering total cost of ownership (TCO). One OAC client can be deployed and used for both wired and wireless 802.1X access, enabling unified enforcement of corporate security policies, and saving administration and provisioning time, effort, and cost. Through its common user interface for both wired and wireless access, OAC delivers a simplified user experience that reduces training and support costs, allowing organizations to standardize on a single network access client across their business, regardless of network connection.
OAC also provides localized versions, with translated user interface and documentation. OAC secures authentication and connectivity for all users, regardless of network connection type, and delivers port-based security and enforcement of network access policies.
Industry Tested, Government-Certified
A specialized edition of OAC is also available that incorporates the Odyssey Security Component, a cryptographic module that has been Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 Level 1 validated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Canada Communications Security Establishment (CSE). Juniper Networks Odyssey Access Client FIPS Edition provides the advanced management features of OAC demanded by large, worldwide public and private sector organizations with multiple facilities and deployments. Odyssey Access Client FIPS Edition conforms to NIST and U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) guidelines for the use of 802.11i and TLS-based EAP methods. OAC FIPS Edition has recently been evaluated and certified for conformance to the Common Criteria (ISO/IEC 15408), the international security standard. The claims being validated include the U.S. Government Protection Profile for Wireless LAN Clients for Basic Robustness Environments. OAC FIPS Edition has been awarded an assurance level of EAL 3 Augmented ALC_FLR.2. (Please contact Juniper Networks for the version number of the evaluated client.) OAC FIPS Edition is also compatible with the U.S. DoD’s Common Access Card (CAC) standard. OAC FIPS Edition supports the xSec protocol, which uses 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and Layer 2 header encryption. All client-side cryptographic xSec operations are performed using the Odyssey Security Component cryptographic module.
