Among other things, MassTransit Enterprise 4.1 will add support for Web browser clients operating in Mac OS X. It’s slated for release in the second quarter of the year and will be free to registered MassTransit Enterprise 4.0 customers with maintenance and support agreements.
With the new capabilities, organizations can build secure digital workflows across multiple organizations with industry-standard encryption and authentication technology, according to
. MassTransit Enterprise version 4.1 offers protection of digital data in transit through the use of OpenSSL-based encryption. The product will use an RC4-based encryption algorithm with a 128-bit key for encryption of data transfers between Web clients and servers, as well as server-to-server transfers.
Version 4.1 will also offer validation of identity of both Web clients and servers with support for X.509 digital certificates. Network security will be enhanced by the elimination of the requirement that organizations open a dedicated firewall port for MassTransit traffic, said Andy Lewis, Group Logic’s vice president of marketing and sales. Instead, MassTransit will now use TCP/IP port 443, the port used for SSL connections carrying data.
