The IC6500 FIPS Unified Access Control Appliance is built to meet the needs of the most demanding and complex government agencies and secure enterprise environments. A next generation hardened, centralized policy management server, it provides the same functionality found on the Juniper Networks IC6500 UAC Appliance, delivering superior scalability, performance, and redundancy. The IC6500 FIPS UAC Appliance adds a dedicated FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certified hardware security module to handle all cryptographic operations. This server also includes tamper evident labels which can deter physical security breaches on the network and provide a visual indication of device integrity.
IC6500 FIPS, through the UAC Agent or UAC agent-less mode, can gather user authentication, endpoint security state, and device location data in order to define dynamic access policies that the server distributes to enforcement points across the network. These enforcement points include any vendor-independent 802.1x-enabled access point and switch, such as EX Series Ethernet Switches, and any Juniper Networks firewall platform, including SSG Series Secure Services Gateways and ISG Series Integrated Security Gateways with Intrusion Detection and Prevention, as well as the robust networking and security services of SRX Series Services Gateways.
User session data can be shared between the IC6500 FIPS and SA Series SSL VPN Appliances, enabling the seamless provisioning of SSL VPN user sessions into UAC upon login, or alternatively UAC user sessions into SSL VPN at login. Also, users authenticated to one IC6500 FIPS appliance may, if authorized access resources protected by another IC Series appliance on the network, enabling "follow-me" policies. UAC adopts the TNC standard protocol IF-MAP to enable the federation of user session data, providing users - whether remote or local - with seamless access to corporate resources protected by uniform network access control policies through a single login.
