    A virtual private network (VPN) is a combination of tunnelling, encryption, authentication and access control used to carry traffic over the Internet (or a managed Internet protocol (IP) network or a provider's backbone). Simply stated, a VPN gives users a secure way to access corporate network resources over the Internet or other public or private networks. VPNs are hot, and for good reason. They promise to help organisations more economically support sales over the Internet, tie business partners and suppliers together, link branch offices with each other, and support telecommuter access to corporate network resources.

    Being able to monitor and assess the performance of a large transaction processing system is an essential activity during the commissioning and acceptance phases of the system's development and then subsequently when the system enters operational service. The article describes some of the data capture and presentation techniques used on a major new road tolling system in the Southern Hemisphere. View full abstract»

    Application integration has become the 'philosopher's stone' for many industrial companies. Many integration projects have succeeded in solving the problem they set themselves, but left the problem of integration unsolved. The integration of applications for a complex design environment is particularly rich in such projects. In the author's experience, a broader view of integration is needed, and several complementary models of integration are described, together with a list of 12 different design issues that integration projects need to resolve. It is not claimed that a project covering all these features will succeed, but rather an absence of a feature is an indication that the project will fail. View full abstract»

    The increased clock frequencies and higher integration levels of today's high-performance embedded microcontrollers have led to the widespread incorporation of on-chip debugging logic into new microcontroller chip designs. The newly defined standard for embedded system debugging, the IEEE-ISTO Nexus 5001 Forum Standard for a Global Embedded Debug Interface, is introduced and is related to the test and debugging requirements of development engineers.
