||One of the biggest issues surrounding the Internet is security. The term "wireless"
immediately raises questions on the security of the system. Most consumers have
experienced the unintentional interception of portable phone signals and cellular phone
signals and equate this to wireless. Explain, in laymanís terms, how Canopyís wireless
technology addresses these problems.
||First, unlike analog telephone transmissions, digital transmissions of Internet traffic
are much more difficult to intercept because of the complex cryptology associated with
the technology. Second, like other Internet applications such as secure email or web
browsing, users can employ many security applications which prevent eavesdropping on
transmissions - whether such security applications are installed on the last-mile link to the
userís house or elsewhere in the Internet. Third, a Canopy system provides an over-theair
encryption, which cryptographically scrambles the data bits, preventing anyone
"listening" to the airwaves from deciphering any messages. In fact, the Canopy systemís
over-the-air link may be the most secure leg of the typical userís Internet connection.
Most wireless products on the market today use 802.11x standard to pass data back and forth over the air. This is done straight forward from the spec sheet. The spec sheet states how the data will be sent, how it will connect, how it will communicate. It is like an instruction manual for a hacker on how to break into your system. Canopy was develop from the 802.11x standard but only as a reference. There are no tools setting around for the hacker to use. Because of the separation of the standard it provides little means for a hacker to get to your data.
DES - Data Encryption Standard. Canopy utilizes DES to encrypt all over-the-air data on the fly. That means that each packet of your precious data sent and received by the Canopy antenna is DES encrypted. Now that's security!
FSK - Phase Shift Keying
Canopy FSK - "Phase Shift Keying" to guard against inference and noise. This also means as every packet is transmitted and received it's data phase is being shifted. This not only makes it harder to track and identify it also provide a better quality of signal.
The only way to be more secure is not to get on the internet!
