digi-mobile-vpn-diagramThis service offers persistent, secure connectivity, utilizing Digi Remote Manager (Digi RM) as the central portal for orchestrating the mobile VPN setup and deployment. Digi Mobile VPN, powered by Radio IP, provides a highly secure mobile VPN software solution developed to address the exacting needs of mission critical communications including FirstNet® support for emergency responders.

Digi Mobile VPN enables communications to seamlessly traverse multiple, independent networks simultaneously within one mobile VPN connection, assuring secure uninterrupted connectivity for various mobile workforces — regardless of their location — while exceeding data protection regulations.

Digi devices provide a range of connectivity options including cellular failover with features such as Digi SureLink®, policy-based routing and interface bonding. These features are excellent at preventing any external network failures from causing downtime.

As a valuable add-on service to Digi RM, Digi Mobile VPN can be easily integrated from a central portal to enhance robust connectivity across the network. Using Digi RM to manage devices and network connectivity leverages our proven remote management platform through a single point of command. Digi RM’s monitoring and management features make it easy to view and control your devices from any location.

Enhanced privacy and security with session persistence

Privacy should ensure that no third parties — including the VPN provider — can identify individual VPN users or see their online activity by monitoring the VPN connection. This is partially accomplished by employing strong security measures. Digi routers are designed with encryption built in, and integrated Digi Mobile VPN security offers an easy-to-use solution. These technologies are used to ensure that data is kept confidential, is not modified in transit, and only travels between trusted parties.

  • Secure VPN protocol such as OpenVPN, L2TP, SSTP, or IKEv2
  • Channel encryption must minimally use the AES 128-bit algorithm and be tested with AES 256-bit algorithm
  • Authentication protocol must be SHA256 or better
  • Key exchange (RSA and DH keys) must be 2,048-bit or higher
  • Perfect forward secrecy: session keys cannot be compromised even if the private key of the server is compromised
  • DNS leak protection, WebRTC lead prevention and IPv6 leak prevention must be built into the VPN connection
  • VPN traffic shall persist when the VPN connection drops, with persistence algorithms between the Digi router and VPN server
  • The provider must operate its own DNS servers and not route DNS requests through the default ISP or a public provider such as OpenDNS or Google DNS
  • Physical servers are preferred as they leave no room for ambiguity around which country’s data privacy laws apply
Reliability with increased speed and reduced latency

A VPN’s primary purpose is to ensure privacy and security online, but no one wants to compromise speed. High speed is always a top priority of first responder communications. Digi transportation cellular routers feature hardware acceleration, meet the U.S. government cybersecurity FIPS 140-2 standard, and employ speed and latency tests for maximum performance and reliability across private and secure Internet connections.

Built-in capabilities with DAL OS and value-added services

With Digi Accelerated Linux (DAL OS) embedded in Digi devices, an extensive set of software features and capabilities are built into firmware that is signed, vetted and distributed as part of our Digi TrustFence®-approved standards. Digi Mobile VPN reduces cost with a single license on the router for all connected devices to the router, without needing to run a client on each connected device.

When a client enables Mobile VPN in Digi RM and configures their Digi devices remotely or locally in DAL OS, the default route for any traffic is through the Mobile VPN connection. There is no extra client necessary and the standard DAL IPsec implementation is sufficient to get started. This can be managed by the customer, by Digi Professional Services or by a Digi partner.

Digi Mobile VPN can also be combined with Digi WAN Bonding for 5G/LTE WAN aggregation and immediate failover. This further optimizes speed and throughput with reduced latency, with WAN smoothing, hot failover and packet duplication.
