NSA certifies General Dynamics network encryptor

The National Security Agency has certified General Dynamics' TACLANE-Micro (KG-175D) in-line network encryptor for securing classified data at the Top-Secret level and below on commercial, military and government IP networks.

The encryptor can be used on fixed or mobile platforms such as ships or aircraft where space and power are limited, General Dynamics said. The device is ruggedized for operation in tactical environments and can be managed remotely.

In addition to its certification for securing classified data on IP networks at levels below Top Secret, the device complies with NSA's High Assurance Internet Protocol Encryptor Interoperability Specification (HAIPE IS) Version 1.3.5, the company said.

The TACLANE-Micro encryptor is the smallest and lightest device of its kind. The device features both copper and fiber-optic interfaces and has an aggregate throughput of 200 Mbps.
