LSI Logic said it has ported Intoto's iGateway firewall and virtual private networking software to its HomeBASE ADSL2+ gateway chipset.

Unlike previous products, VPN and firewall capabilities are a must in current gateway designs. To make that integration easier, LSI opted to optimize Intoto's software for its ADSL2+ chipsets. "Our HomeBASE customers will now be able to quickly add security features with minimal cost and development time," said Kumar Sivakumar, senior director of the DSL Product Business Unit at LSI Logic.

Designed to run on Linux, Intoto's iGateway includes firewall and VPN modules. The firewall module has been certified by TruSecure's ICSA Labs. The VPN module is certified by ICSA Labs and the VPN Consortium. When combined, both modules are designed to protect against denial-of-service attacks, deliver firewall active content filtering and enable VPN's to be created even in the presence-of-network address translation. The LSI Logic HomeBASE ADSL2+ chipset features the AR8204 analog front-end and the AR902 network processor. The AR902 integrates the DMT engine with a 200MHz ARM922 processor, a hardware-based ATM SAR, a USB port and a SDRAM controller that provides the network processor with access to high-bandwidth, high-capacity bulk memory. The AR902 also houses Intoto's iGateway software.
