KG-350 encryptor Type-1 certified

1st August 2016 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Raytheon's KG-350 Ethernet encryption system for network communications protection has been granted Type 1 certification by the the US National Security Agency (NSA), the company announced on 27 July.

The Type 1 certification authorises the company to sell the encryption system to government, military and commercial customers. 

The KG-350 is a high-capacity networking system designed to protect communications for sensitive information up to Top Secret/SCI classification. Layer 2 encryption preserves bandwidth – increasing information throughput up to 45% – and enables uninterrupted real-time data, voice and video.

The KG-350 system is ruggedised for use in fixed-site applications and tactical vehicles, and conforms to the NSA's new Ethernet Security Specification (ESS) standard. ESS encryptors are interoperable with one another, which means that new encryptors can simply be added to a growing network, rather than needing to replace entire networks.

The encryptor works in three speeds for accommodating the broadest range of future and current network requirements: 100Mbps, 1Gbps and 10Gbps. A single unit can ensure uninterrupted communications across larger networks than preceding technology in point-to-multiple-point, mesh and point-to-point environments.
