CASSIDIAN gets certification for its SECCOM Secure Exchange Gateway

12th November 2010 - 09:49 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Cassidian has successfully completed the Network Centric Operations Industry Consortium (NCOIC) certification process with the result that the SECCOM Secure Exchange Gateway (SEG) has demonstrated its conformance to the NCOIC Certification Program - Pattern "Secure Formatted Information Exchange Gateway (SFIEG) v. 1.2". Now SEG is entitled to be called "NCOIC certified Building Block" as first product world-wide. NCOIC patterns provide guidance for designing and building
products that lead to interoperability. In this way, customers can assure that products procured from separate companies will work together in days, rather than months or years.

The SECCOM SEG is the flexible solution for secure data exchange between information domains with different security requirements. In cooperation with the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI), Cassidian has developed the SEG for use in high-grade security domains. With the application of filters, it checks and verifies the release of information from one security domain to another, thus implements and enforces a pre-defined security policy applicable for data exchange across domain boundaries.

With NCOIC’s “seal of approval” in hand, Cassidian can rightly assert that SECCOM will provide all the capabilities a gateway needs to securely bridge communication gaps that have hindered the deployment of net-centric systems in the past.

To meet the growing need for new solutions and products to face Cyber threats, Cassidian and EADS Innovation Works – EADS central research labs - group their cyber forces in a Cyber Security Customer solutions Centre. There is a strong expert base in the UK, France and Germany to serve the needs of operators of critical IT infrastructure (governments,
military organisations, global companies, critical infrastructure operators) and to provide the structure with all the expertise and solutions required to detect and respond to cyber threats.
