MoCA has developed MoCASec, a robust security layer for MoCA links, after market feedback requesting stronger secured links between networked devices.

Available for its entire portfolio of specifications, MoCASec enhances network configurations where peer to peer privacy is required. 

Providing point-to-point link privacy, MoCASec specifically allows for seamless integration of the MoCA technology into home networks supporting the Wi-Fi Alliance’s EasyMesh standard.

“Wi-Fi EasyMesh delivers a better Wi-Fi user experience and a standardised, multiple-AP (access point) solution for home Wi-Fi,” said Kevin Robinson, vice president of marketing, Wi-Fi Alliance. “The addition of MoCASec into the network integrates additional privacy without disruption to devices already in use.”

“It is not enough to just provide huge amounts of bandwidth anymore. Network operators must address the entire user experience including expanded security and privacy,” said Charles Cerino, MoCA president. “MoCASec ensures the secure and private transport of data over the in-home coaxial cabling, further enhancing the home networking experience.”

MoCASec is available now via firmware upgrade for MoCA Home 2.0 and 2.5 devices and is part of the MoCA Home 3.0 standard.
