1. What is Selective
Layer Encryption (SLE™)?
patented breakthrough SLE™ is a feature
that improves the performance of IP Virtual
Private Network (VPN) services over satellite
2. What does SLE™ do?
data encryption above the TCP/IP layers.
Specifically, it enables interoperability
with enhanced satellite link protocols,
mitigating the long propagation delay
characteristics associated with satellite
networks and resulting in significant
performance improvements of IP VPNs over
3. How do you configure
SLE™ tunnels on the BANDIT™?
SLE™ tunnels in the same way as standard
IPSec tunnels. The data above TCP layer
is encrypted using the negotiated encryption
algorithms and dynamic keys.
4. How flexible
SLE™ enables you to encrypt selective
TCP traffic by defining the policy rules
according to your requirements. You can
set the policy rules to expose or encrypt
applications that operate above the TCP
layers (e.g., HTTP, Telnet, FTP, etc.).
SLE™’s flexible design makes it is easy
to add and set other Layer 4 protocols
to the same scheme already defined.
With which brands of modem can the BANDIT™
with SLE™ interoperate?
To date, Encore
has successfully tested the BANDIT™ with
Hughes modems; however, the design is
open to other satellite modems as well.
6. What does it cost to implement the
SLE™ feature in the BANDIT™?
no separate charge for the SLE™ support
in the BANDIT™. SLE™ will be included
as a standard BANDIT™ feature with Software
