Network Security – Tikona’s efforts to protect its Users

Network security is a big deal. Ever since some rogue elements have attempted to use the internet’s incredibly accessible structure for their own wicked ends, the matter of security, data breach particularly in financial transactions and overall safety on the internet have been topics garnering considerable interest from the general public. And this is growing. With that in mind, Tikona, one of the leading broadband internet providers in India have taken considerable efforts to protect its users.

The Basics 


Tikona relays internetconnectivity wirelessly across a large area. This is then sent using conventional cables across a very short distance from a receiver to your home or office. This receiver is usually found on the rooftop of a building. The network connection that is offered by Tikona is a secure one. The company uses Standard Protocols and technologies in a Hierarchical implementation .In order to make Tikona Wireless Network highly Secure, Advance Multi-Layer Security Techniques, that are not available in the wire-line world, have been developed and deployed.
Some of the aspects that contribute in increased wireless security include strong encryption over wireless network, Wireless Protected Access II (WPA2) encryption and the use of AES cipher, a very strong encryption mechanism.

WPA2

Tikona Secure Wireless Network uses Most Advance Wireless Protected Access II (WPA2) encryption along with Advance Encryption System (AES ) to connect between Two Wireless End Points . WPA2 is a pervasive, global standard widely adopted in highly secure environments. WPA2 helps protect networks against hacker threats such as man-in-the-middle attacks, authentication forging, reply, key collision, weak keys, packet forging, and brute-force/dictionary attacks.

AES Cipher

Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) is a specification for the encryption of electronic data. AES is the best known and most widely used block cipher. It is so secure that its use is authorized by various government agencies, including the United States Government and the NSA.
The AES cipher is a key feature of Tikona’s offerings that utilizes a 128 bit Key and a 48 bit Initialization Vector that makes WPA-2 AES encryption scheme unbreakable. Additionally, using 802.1x EAP-TTLS key management is taken care of and data and header integrity is maintained through CCMP.

In summation, Tikona has taken care to ensure that your security is never compromised. While offering connectivity that has fast internet speed and a plethora of internet plans, the company has maintained a security infrastructure that is virtually impenetrable and ensures that your data cannot be misused.
