The CN6000 Series Encryptor is a high-speed standards based hardware encryption platform designed to secure data transmitted over optical and twisted-pair Ethernet and optical Fibre Channel networks. Two models are validated: the CN6100 10G Ethernet Encryptor operating at a line rate of 10Gb/s and the CN6040, a protocol selectable model operating at data rates up to 4Gb/s. Configured in Ethernet mode the CN6040 model supports rates of 10Mb/s, 100Mb/s & 1Gb/s and in Fibre Channel mode supports rates of 1.0625, 2.125 & 4.25Gb/s. Data privacy is provided by FIPS approved AES algorithms.
Diffie-Hellman (key agreement; key establishment methodology provides 112 bits of encryption strength; non-compliant less than 112 bits of encryption strength); RSA (key wrapping; key establishment methodology provides 112 bits of encryption strength; non-compliant less than 112 bits of encryption strength)
