RPM provides bi-directional, mutual authentication and data security that is capable of continuous transaction security.For example, in a client-server environment, Bi-Directional Mutual Authentication is a security feature in which a client process must prove its identity to a server, and the server must prove its identity to the client before any application traffic is sent to the client-to-server connection. RPM facilitates a bi-directional authentication handshake that proves the identity of both parties via RPM mutual authentication. The authentication handshake will be performed prior to any application message communication, thereby meeting the bi-directional mutual authentication requirement, as well as the requirement that authentication be established prior to any communications of application data.
In fact, RPM can be placed at any level within the Open System Interconnection (OSI) Reference Model. The capability of embedding RPM at the lower OSI levels improves the performance and gives the dependent applications native functions to call; providing a greater range of flexibility.
