Description
The Certes Networks CEP encryptors are high performance, integrated encryption appliances that offers full line rate Ethernet Frame encryption for 10Mbps Ethernet transports. Housed in a tamper evident chassis, the Certes Networks CEP has two functional 10BaseT Ethernet ports used for traffic. Traffic on the CEP local port is received from and transmitted to the trusted network in the clear, while traffic on the CEP's remote port has security processing applied to it. Security processing can be data confidentiality, data integrity and data authentication.
FIPS Algorithms
