Harris Corporation - Type 1 certification National Security Agency's CCEP

Harris Corporation : 11 December, 2008  (New Product)
Harris Corporation, an international communications and information technology company, announced that the Ethernet module for its SecNet 54(R) High- Assurance Internet Protocol Encryption product has received Type 1 certification from the National Security Agency's Commercial COMSEC Evaluation Program (CCEP).
The Ethernet module provides wired communications security at up to 100 Megabits per second (Mbps) of line speed - a significant increase in packet encryption rates for highly mobile products servicing Type 1 IP communications.

The Ethernet module (KIV54/EM01) is the first product extension of Harris Corporation's SecNet 54(R), a first-of-its-kind cryptographic communications device with a modular architecture that supports numerous transmission mediums. In its initial configuration, certified by the NSA last year, SecNet 54(R) was released with an approved wireless radio module configurable for 802.11a/b/g modes of operation.

'The addition of the Ethernet module to SecNet 54(R) family significantly enhances the ability of military personnel to connect to secure Department of Defense networks,' said Richard Rzepkowski, vice president of Communications Security Products, Harris RF Communications.

'The SecNet 54 Ethernet module, in conjunction with the SecNet 54 crypto module, delivers high-speed encryption to single or multiple clients with greatly reduced size, weight, power and implementation costs. Weighing well under a pound, the Ethernet module brings high-performance encrypted communications to a user's desktop, workgroups and evenTactical Operation Centers (TOCs.)'

SecNet 54(R) offers high-speed Type 1 encryption for data, video and voice over IP (VoIP). The device incorporates the NSA-certified Harris Sierra(TM) II encryption processor and is compliant with the NSA's High Assurance Internet Protocol Encryption standard (HAIPE(TM).) version 1.3.5 as verified through formal HAIPE interoperability testing. SecNet 54(R) has a modular architecture that offers users significant flexibility and allows for quick utilization of standard communication
technologies such as wired 802.3 Ethernet and wireless 802.11a/b/g. The SecNet 54(R) device is ideal for securing communications on the move or at the desktop. In an upcoming software upgrade, SecNet 54(R) will allow users to eliminate commonly used peripheral hardware in field applications.
