NSA Certifies General Dynamics Encryptor with Embedded Router to Secure Information on Government Networks
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – General Dynamics C4 Systems, a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD), announced today that the TACLANE®-Router (KG-175R) has been certified by the National Security Agency (NSA) to protect classified information transmitted through military and government networks at the Top Secret level and below. The KG-175R incorporates Cisco® 3200 Series Mobile Routers and eliminates the need for multiple pieces of network equipment previously needed for similar network routing and encryption functions.
The TACLANE-Router directs information to the recipient’s destination while securing the transmitted information. The KG-175R comes pre-configured to NSA network routing security guidelines and is compliant with the High Assurance Internet Protocol Encryptor Interoperability Specification (HAIPE® IS) standard for use from the core of a network to the battlefield’s tactical edge.
“The KG-175R is the first NSA certified network encryptor with router functionality,” said John Cole, vice president of Information Assurance for General Dynamics C4 Systems. “By providing multiple functions in a single device, military and government users can significantly reduce size, weight and power requirements for both stationary and on-the-move networks.”
