Census buys crypto gear

The Census Bureau is encrypting its Census 2000 interoffice communications with T1 and asynchronous transfer mode encryption appliances from Cylink Corp. of Santa Clara, Calif.

The bureau bought 57 encryptors and Privacy Manager software through the National Institutes of Health Electronic Computer Store II contract with Federal Data Corp. of Bethesda, Md., said Terry Hirsh, Cylink's director of government services.

Census 2000 call centers also are leasing 44 Cylink encryptors for frame relay as part of the Telephone Questionnaire Assistance Project under a contract with Electronic Data Systems Corp., Hirsh said.
