  1. 1. Vyatta Network OS: Version 6.2 Highlights
  2. 2.

  3. 3. VYATTA NETWORK OS: NEW FEATURES in 6.2 <ul><li>License Key Entitlement </li></ul><ul><li>License Key Entitlement for VSE Customers </li></ul><ul><li>Target Customer: All </li></ul><ul><li>Description: The Vyatta system now supports license key entitlement. If the Vyatta system does not have a valid VSE license key, the system will stop working in full VSE mode. Certain functionality will no longer be available, including the Remote Access API, Config Sync, and Cloning. Once a valid license key is entered into the system and the Vyatta entitlement server has validated the check, all VSE functions will resume operating again. </li></ul>
  4. 4. VYATTA NETWORK OS: NEW FEATURES in 6.2 <ul><li>Image Cloning </li></ul><ul><li>Enables Batch System Customization </li></ul><ul><li>Target Customer: All </li></ul><ul><li>Description: The Vyatta system now supports image cloning. The cloned image will behave as if it installed via the “add system image” command. This enables administrators to test and verify their new configuration before implementing them widely across the entire network. </li></ul>
  5. 5. VYATTA NETWORK OS: NEW FEATURES in 6.2 <ul><li>Improved Config Management </li></ul><ul><li>Better Manageability of Configuration Changes </li></ul><ul><li>Target Customer: All </li></ul><ul><li>Description: The Vyatta configuration backend was updated. The new config library delivers better performance for handling sets and deletes. The Show, Save, and Load commands are more reliable after conversion to this new library, and now administrators can attach comments to any node in a config file via “flexible comments”. The system can handle multiple configuration revisions and configuration confirmation eliminates config errors. </li></ul>
  6. 6. VYATTA NETWORK OS: NEW FEATURES in 6.2 <ul><li>OpenVPN Enhancements </li></ul><ul><li>Major uplift of OpenVPN </li></ul><ul><li>Target Customer: All </li></ul><ul><li>Description: The Vyatta OpenVPN implementation has gained significant usability enhancements, including PAM authentication, route “pushing”, the ability to reset a running OpenVPN process, dynamic add/removal of a client, and the ability to configure multiple subnets per client. </li></ul>
  7. 7. VYATTA NETWORK OS: NEW FEATURES in 6.2 <ul><li>IPS Enhancements </li></ul><ul><li>Improvements to VyattaGuard IPS implementation </li></ul><ul><li>Target Customer: All </li></ul><ul><li>Description: The Vyatta IPS implementation now supports directional traffic inspection, so administrators can specify inspection in any direction. Additionally, alert reporting is now available via remote MySQL, email, BASE/ACID, and syslog. </li></ul>
  8. 8. VYATTA NETWORK OS: NEW FEATURES in 6.2 <ul><li>IPv6 DNS Resolver </li></ul><ul><li>IPv6-specific DNS Resolver </li></ul><ul><li>Target Customer: All </li></ul><ul><li>Description: The Vyatta DNS Resolver can now be configured to use IPv6 to communicate with its recursive DNS server. </li></ul>
  9. 9. VYATTA NETWORK OS: NEW FEATURES in 6.2 <ul><li>Branch Maintenance </li></ul><ul><li>Vyatta Code Base Current and Updated </li></ul><ul><li>Target Customer: All </li></ul><ul><li>Description: The Vyatta code base was rebased to current Debian. This was to leverage the many improvements in the Debian distribution “Squeeze”, which fixed many significant issues in Debian “Lenny”, including security patches, kernel updates, thousands of bugs, as well as enhancements to IPSec, DHCP, IPS usability, and virtual machine tools. </li></ul>
  10. 10. VYATTA NETWORK OS: NEW FEATURES in 6.2 <ul><li>HTTPS Filtering </li></ul><ul><li>For VyattaGuard customers using HTTP Filtering </li></ul><ul><li>Target Customer: Enterprise </li></ul><ul><li>Description: The Vyatta system now supports blocking of HTTPS requests in transparent mode. This means that customers can now also block HTTPS-based URLs in transparent mode, to maintain end-user productivity. For example, IT can now use VyattaGuard to block https://www.facebook.com in addition to http://www.facebook.com . </li></ul>
