Per our End-of-Life Policy, these hardware appliances will be available for sale until the EOS date. The End of Service Life (EOSL) date for these hardware appliances will be August 31, 2022 for all customers who have either a valid warranty or hardware support contract. For any customer whose warranty or hardware support contract expires prior to December 31, 2019, a one-year extension will be available for purchase. Oracle Communications customers that are using T5200, T5000, E1000 and E500 should consider D6000 and D2000 as upgrade alternatives. This change is being made to switch to a new supply chain after the acquisition of Talari Networks by Oracle. The new D-Series platforms provide equivalent or higher performance and security levels than the T-Series and E-Series platforms being replaced.

Talari Releases APN 7.3
31 May 2018
Talari Networks has released the Adaptive Private Networking (APN) 7.3 software which offers a significant improvement to how Talari Appliances identify and forward applications. This release introduces the following new application identification enhancements:
- DNS snooping, which is less intrusive application identification technique when compared to our existing DNS proxy or manual six-tuple identification mechanisms, is now available.
- Simplified application policy configuration by supplying a default signature library with over 100 application entries. Preset application signatures are modular can be downloaded and upgraded independently of software packages via the regular Change Management process. Note that Talari will provide updates to the application Preset list moving forward based on customer feedback.
- The creation of a dedicated application dashboard which allows the user to view top applications cumulative and live, Bandwidth usage by service as well as the Health of an application. This information helps administrators perform common tasks such as troubleshooting and capacity planning.
- Streamlined configuration elements that make creating an application policy fast and easy. Talari’s Enhanced Application Identification is extensible and supports the addition of user-defined categories and applications.
- Applications are assigned to a pre-defined application category, or users may configure additional application categories as required.
By combining all of these capabilities, users can create granular application policies such as steering a single application (e.g., Microsoft Office 365) out the local internet service while forwarding all other SaaS application(s) back to the data center or NCN site. The user can also define the scope of the application policy which could include a single location, all APN sites or a subset of sites depending on user needs. Traditional QOS services are applied for conduit services where the user can map an application to a pre-defined classification or select their own classification from a pre-defined list.
Looking ahead, Talari will continue to provide updates to the preset application signatures that are based on customer feedback.

Intel Spectre and Meltdown Response
8 January 2018
Description: Intel Spectre and Meltdown flaws (CVE-2017-5715, CVE-2017-5753, CVE-2017-5754) permit a piece of malicious software running in userland space to access restricted access kernel and driver memory space. The flaws could allow a tenant Virtual Machine (VM) with malicious software to indirectly access information from another VM when both are on the same host using the same devices or drivers through the hypervisor.
General Impact: These issues can impact public multi tenant SaaS/IaaS and hosted virtualized environments that have many tenants or software from different trusted and untrusted sources deployed within the same hypervisor. For example, an AWS or ESX implementation, where a customers security application may be residing in the same host as a bad actor (non-trusted source) that runs software on a trusted users VM. Also, it is possible that the vulnerabilities could be used to disrupt the hypervisor itself and interfere with normal operations of all other tenants as a result.
Impact to Talari appliances: Minimal to none. All software that runs in Talari appliances is from a trusted source. Even if the KVM (guest room) in our E100 and E1000 appliances are running a 3rd party NFV, the hosted software should be from trusted sources since administrators must securely log in and install these packages.
Impact to Talari in the cloud: While a Talari VM is from a trusted source, the damage potential for Talari from a security standpoint in a hosted environment is minimal since we do not access highly exploitable physical devices, such as USB ports. It is possible that another compromised VM may disrupt the common hypervisor which will impact any other VM including a Talari VM.
How to address the issues: Kernel patches are being prepared. While we do not anticipate any major performance impact due to the patches, we will re-validate our performance levels once the updates have been applied.
