Overview
Bottom rule

Organizations need a single solution for a security and integration gateway that is capable of handling all types of application workloads with a policy-driven interface. A gateway with these characteristics can offer these benefits:

  • Consistent security, control, and integration policy enforcement
  • End-to-end security for transactional workloads, regardless of the business channel from which they come
  • Reduced infrastructure complexity
  • Lower operating costs
  • Improved user experience
  • Easier to scale back-end IT infrastructure

Deploying a security and integration gateway, enterprises can decouple the enforcement of security and other policies from the underlying application. It should also deliver functional offload of repeatable tasks, enabling the back-end applications and resources to more efficiently scale to meet the high-volume demands that inevitably occur with API and cloud traffic.

Cloud and Docker support

  • Provision and deploy a DataPower gateway as a Docker container for enhanced portability and elasticity on cloud and micro-service platforms
  • Deploy a DataPower gateway in an RHEL cloud virtual server to provide increased cloud elasticity and security
  • Run a DataPower gateway in a Microsoft Azure virtual server for increased cloud security, especially applications protected using Kerberos standards.
  • Integrate with SafeNet Luna network HSM to provide strong key management and secure crypto operations for securing access to mission-critical applications and meeting industry compliance and standard requirements.

Mobile and API security

  • Enforce mobile application access with IBM MobileFirst Foundation, enabling stronger security and quicker time to market of mobile applications
  • Enable flexible user authentication for Single Sign-On (SSO) to web, mobile and API workloads using social (Google) and enterprise identities based on OpenID connect
  • Enforce mobile and API security policies using Computer Associates Single Sign-on (CA SSO) (formerly SiteMinder) to support flexible enforcement of security policies
  • Ensure stronger API security with support for JSON Web Token (JWT) including support in OAuth 2.0 Client Authentication and Authorization Grants for protecting access to API resources.
  • Protect mission-critical applications from security exposures with expanded transport level security (TLS) cipher and certificate validation support

Policy creation and enforcement

  • New out-of-the-box API gateway policies for IBM API Connect to enable quick delivery of gateway capabilities without custom policy authoring
  • Modernized user experience for a simplified view of gateway configuration, enabling quicker creation of gateway services

Description
Bottom rule

IBM DataPower Gateway V7.5 delivers increased mobile and API security and deployment on new cloud and Docker platforms with an updated modernized user experience:

Cloud and Docker support

  • DataPower gateways can be deployed on various platforms, such as physical and virtual appliances, infrastructure as a service (IaaS) platforms, and now as a Docker container for enhanced deployment flexibility and use within a micro-services architecture. Docker is the standard for delivery of container technology on public and private cloud platforms that provide software for quickly enabling high availability and provisioning of environments with low infrastructure overhead. The same DataPower secure firmware that powers physical and virtual appliances can now be deployed as a Docker container for enhanced portability and consumption across any platform supported by Docker.
  • Cloud deployments that require RHEL support can now deploy DataPower gateways on Amazon and or SoftLayer® using an RHEL cloud virtual server. This support enables easier development operations, or devops, for enterprises that have established RHEL processes and standards.
  • For enhanced security, especially when mandated by industry regulations, DataPower gateways can now use cryptographic keys from SafeNet Luna network HSM for key management and execution of secure cryptographic operations.

Mobile and API security

  • New API security capabilities based on open standards, such as OpenID Connect, JWT profile for OAuth 2.0, and enforcement of security policies defined in CA SSO. These policies can be quickly added with simple configuration without any custom code. In addition, you can enforce access to API services using enterprise identities and social identities from Google
  • Mobile application security policies authored in IBM MobileFirst Platform Foundation can now be enforced on DataPower gateways; combined with API security, you have a single platform for enforcing mobile application and API traffic.
  • DataPower gateways deliver edge security and are often the first line of defense for protection against malicious attacks. This release includes additional TLS cipher and support for certificate validation.

Policy creation and enforcement

  • The newly modernized user experience enables you to quickly create gateway services and deliver a simpler user interface for managing DataPower gateways. This release provides simplified navigation for easier management of DataPower gateway services.
  • You can quickly enforce access to API workloads on IBM API Connect without any custom policy authoring with several new out-of-the box API policies.

Charge metric

Program name PID number Charge metric
IBM DataPower Gateway 5725-T06 Per Appliance Install
Software Options for IBM DataPower Gateway 5725-T07 Per Application Instance
IBM DataPower Gateway Virtual Edition 5725-T09 Per Authorized User, Per Processor Value Unit

Metric definitions:

Authorized User: A unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. An Authorized User is a unique person who is given access to the program. The program may be installed on any number of computers or servers and each Authorized User may have simultaneous access to any number of instances of the program at one time. Licensee must obtain separate, dedicated entitlements for each Authorized User given access to the program in any manner directly or indirectly (for example: via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means. An entitlement for an Authorized User is unique to that Authorized User and may not be shared, nor may it be reassigned other than for the permanent transfer of the Authorized User entitlement to another person.

Note: Some programs may be licensed where devices are considered users. In that case the following applies: Any computing device that requests the execution of or receives for execution a set of commands, procedures, or applications from the program or that is otherwise managed by the program is considered a separate user of the program and requires an entitlement as if that device were a person.

Install: A unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. An install is an installed copy of the program on a physical or virtual disk made available to be executed on a computer. Licensee must obtain an entitlement for each install of the program.

Instance: A unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. An entitlement is required for each instance of an application connected to or managed by the program. An application in a test, development, staging, or production environment is each considered to be a separate instance of the application and each must have an entitlement. As well, multiple application instances in a single environment are each considered to be separate instances of the application and each must have an entitlement.

Per Processor Value Unit: A unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. The number of PVU entitlements required is based on the processor technology (defined within https://www-01.ibm.com/software/passportadvantage/pvu_licensing_for_customers.html by processor vendor, brand, type, and model number) and the number of processors made available to the program. IBM continues to define a processor, for the purpose of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip. A dual-core processor chip, for example, has two processor cores.

Licensee can deploy the program using either Full Capacity licensing or Virtualization Capacity (Sub-Capacity) licensing according to

http://www-01.ibm.com/software/passportadvantage/agreementsandforms.html
If using Full Capacity licensing, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores1 in the physical hardware environment made available to or managed by the program, except for those servers from which the program has been permanently removed. If using Virtualization Capacity licensing, licensee must obtain entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores made available to or managed by the program, as defined according to
https://www-01.ibm.com/software/passportadvantage/Counting_Software_licenses_using_spec ific_virtualization_technologies.html

1
An activated processor core is a processor core that is available for use in a physical or virtual server, regardless of whether the capacity of the processor core can be or is limited through virtualization technologies, operating system commands, BIOS settings, or similar restrictions.

Notes:

  • Some programs may require licenses for the program and what is being managed. In that case, the following applies: In addition to the entitlements required for the program directly, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores for the systems on which the resources managed or processed by the program reside.
  • Some programs may be licensed on a managed basis only. In that case, the following applies: Instead of the entitlements required for the program directly, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores for the systems on which the resources managed or processed by the program reside.
  • A few programs on an exception basis may be licensed on a referenced basis. In that case, the following applies: Rather than obtaining entitlements for the activated processor cores available to the program, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the environment made available to the referenced program as if the program itself were executing everywhere the referenced program was executing, independent of the basis on which the referenced program is licensed.

Top rule
Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a lawful, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
