Fortezza will secure calls

The National Security Agency has selected the Rainbow Mykotronx Fortezza Plus Crypto Card from Rainbow Technologies Inc. of Torrance, Calif., to provide authentication and encryption for classified data and voice communications over the Defense Department's new secure telephone terminals.

Rainbow Technologies received a three-year, $15.3 million contract for up to 60,000 of the cards.

The cryptography cards will operate with the Secure Terminal Equipment platform, supplied by L-3 Communications Corp. of New York.

The Secure Terminal Equipment devices will provide secure, toll-quality voice and 128-Kbps data and multimedia transmissions over Integrated Services Digital Network or public switched telephone connections.
