Certification Report

CypherNET is a high-speed, standards-based multi-protocol encryptor specifically designed to secure voice, data and video information transmitted over Ethernet and fibre channel data networks at data rates up to 10 Gigabits per second. It also provides access control facilities using access rules for each defined Ethernet or fibre channel connection.

CypherStream is a small desktop form factor 10 Mbps Ethernet encryptor designed to provide an integrated data security solution for point to point or meshed Ethernet links up to 10 Mbps. CypherStream has been designed to integrate transparently and simply into network architectures.

CypherManager is a Graphical User Interface (GUI) software package that runs on Windows platforms. It acts as a Certification Authority (CA) for signing X.509 certificates and provides secure remote installation of X.509 certificates into CypherNET and CypherStream using SNMPv3. CypherManager can also be used to securely remotely manage CypherNet and CypherStream encryptors. It can be used to securely set and monitor CypherNet and CypherStream internal configuration parameters.

IdQuantique have developed a quantum key distribution system (QKD) to generate and exchange cryptographic keys over fiber optic networks. The QKD keys can be provided to CypherNet encryptors as input into session keys for data encryption. This combination of IdQuantique and CypherNet is known as Cerberis. The TOE scope includes the CypherNET encryptor using QKD keys, but excludes the IdQuantique QKD product.
