        At this time we are working on a similiar project which involves
allowing customers to VPN to our site and "touch" certain boxen. One of the
products we're considering for this task is the Nortel Contivity VPN Switch
because of its ability to filter via source/destination IP and signon
profiles (individual or group).

We have hundreds of small sites connected to our corporate office via a 
private WAN. We want to connect dozens of suppliers to the small sites. To 
avoid the cost of purchasing and managing a firewall for each small site, 
we'd like to connect the suppliers to a Checkpoint firewall in a DMZ that 
corporate will maintain. For now, only private connections to the DMZ will 
be allowed, not direct internet connections.

Since different suppliers need to connect to different applications at 
different sets of sites, a lot of firewall rules will be needed, and the 
complexity could cause a lot of trouble. Does the marketplace offer 
commercial products to authenticate users at the firewall and to authorize 
them to access different platforms at those sites? We have no control over 
the hardware and software at the supplier and customer sites, so a 
multi-platform approach is vital.
