TACLANE-C100 Encryptor receives NSA certification
General Dynamics C4 Systems has announced that its TACLANE-C100 encryptor has been certified by the National Security Agency (NSA) as a Suite B device to secure network communications at the Secret level and below. According to the company the certification paves the way for the system to be used in the US government’s new ‘leave behind’ strategies.
The certification makes the C100 a non-Controlled Cryptographic Item (CCI), enabling users to operate the encryptor in environments where there is a high risk of equipment loss. The TACLANE-C100, as a NSA Cryptographic High Value Product, non-CCI device, will also enable interoperability among US government, military and NATO networks as well as private industry responsible for securing the nation's critical infrastructure.
