  • Digging Deeper into the Cisco ASA Firewall REST API

    Security orchestration methods and of course SDN is driving the need for programmable interfaces in  security products.  The Cisco ASA Firewall added a REST API back in December with the 9.3(2) code release.  I've asked Mason Harris, from Cisco, to write up a quick how-to primer on the ASA API capabilities.  Thank you Mason for the great information.

  • Cisco calls on Arista to stop selling products in US after agency reverses patent finding

    The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency has revoked its November 2016 finding that Arista’s redesigned products don’t infringe a key Cisco patent -- as a result Cisco called on Arista to stop importing those products and recall others sold with redesigned software. The finding is the latest round in a high-stakes battle between Cisco and Arista over patents and copyrights that has been going on since 2014. In the summer of 2016 the US Trade Representative began an import ban as well as a cease and desist order covering Arista products imposed by the International Trade Commission in June where it ruled that Arista had infringed on a number of Cisco’s technology patents.

  • Arista wins big in latest court patent case go-around over Cisco

    In rejecting a $335 million damage award to Cisco, a California jury gave Arista Networks a key verdict in part of the expansive patent infringement lawsuit the two networking companies are fighting over.
    While the jury found Arista had copied some of Cisco Command Line Interface it declined it declined to award in damages. The jury also found that Arista did not infringe the single patent remaining in the case as well as Cisco’s asserted copyrights in its user manuals.

  • Cisco dents Arista again with patent infringement ruling

    U.S. International Trade Commission Judge MaryJoan McNamara issued the so-called “initial determination” on the case which now must be reviewed by the ITC. In the end should the ITC find against Arista its switches could once again be banned from import into the US. The ITC you may recall ruled against Arista in another part of this case and between June and August the company could not import those products. In November Arista announced that US Customs has given it permission to resume importing its networking gear in the United States.
