Xten Deliverables

Well, the end of the month is growing nearer and the X-Men [Xten Team Members] are hard at work getting several customer projects ready for production release.

Sleep is hard to come by but everyone is well fed and the drink is plentiful. Spirits are high as I think everyone is looking forward to some well deserved time off during X-Mas, or maybe we are just inebriated =)

Intermittent foosball games create a distraction and break up the relative silence.

Mark is off to the NYSAA [New York Security Analysts Association] presentation on Monday where he will be doing a mini road show and a meet and greet with some very interested investors.

Our customers are happy, our competitors are not, our partners are jumping and our investors are salivating 🙂 Life is good at Xten.

Secure VoIP & SIP

The next big question for SIP is security. How will we ensure ourselves that the call is not being overheard.

Professionals from every corner are working on a Secure method for using SIP in VoIP. That much is evident by the action on the IETF SIP threads and SIP Authentication, SCTP and TLS methods already in use.

Other methods have also been implemented from several vendors which provide a more comprehensive and imediate fix for Secure SIP Voice conversations and conferencing.

Xten has developed and recently released X-Cipher which is a SIP softphone that has some very unique encryption capabilities. This SIP endpoint can readily be turned into a highly secure IP soft phone at the click of a button. X-Cipher requires a server component that also must be deployed. Here is a snapshot of the offering:

X-Cipher Solution:
– MD5 or SHA1 challenges
– 3DES or AES 128, 192 or 256 bit encryption
– Crypto safe random generators
– X-Cipher to X-Cipher complete encryption
– X-Tunnels NAT traversal functionality

Vonage – 35M Financing


November 24, 2003 — VONAGE, the voice- over-Internet-protocol (VoIP) provider headed by Datek co-founder Jeffrey Citron, has a bundle of new cash at its disposal. The company plans to announce today that it has secured $35 million in new financing led by venture capital firm New Enterprise Associates.
“To get a transaction done with something involving the words ‘Internet’ and ‘telephony’ in the same sentence is really an accomplishment,” Vonage CFO John Rego said.

Rego wouldn’t say what type of valuation the company got on the deal, but he says Vonage’s management still owns more than 50 percent of the company. Vonage will use the money for marketing and to expand service to Canada and Europe.
