Abstract

See full text

A method of routing data across a network receives a session request from a client node to access at least one node in a local network having a plurality of nodes. The method also receives a client certificate (e.g., a digital certificate at least partially specified by known standards, such as the “X509 Standard”) from the client node. The client certificate has client information specifying at least one node to receive packets from the client node. Next, the method uses the client certificate to execute an authentication process. If the authentication process authenticates the client node, then the method routes data packets from the client node to at least one node in the local network as specified by the client information in the client certificate.
