Description
The SLM-5650 satellite modem includes a single FIPS card called the SLM-5650A TRANSEC Module that will perform bulk encryption of all packets for transmission over the satellite regardless of the protocol, the format of data, or existing encryption on the incoming data. The SLM-5650A TRANSEC Module uses 256-bit AES in CBC mode for bulk encryption of all data requiring encryption. The module is managed using a proprietary graphical user interface (GUI) over TLS, referred to as the Management & Control Console, and a command line management interface over SSH.
