Cryptographic Module Validation Program CMVP

Certificate #2438


Module Name
Alcatel-Lucent 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS)
FIPS 140-2
 Historical Reason
Moved to historical list in accordance with SP800-131A Revision 1 Transition (AES/TDES key wrapping)
Overall Level
When operated in FIPS mode with the tamper evident seals installed as indicated in the Security Policy and configured according to Section 3.1 of the Security Policy
Security Level Exceptions
  • Roles, Services, and Authentication: Level 3
  • Mitigation of Other Attacks: N/A
Module Type
Multi-chip standalone
The 1830 PSS is a scalable, next-generation Dense Wave Division Multipexer (DWDM) platform that supports data center aggregation for Ethernet, Fiber Channel (FC) and other protocols. Multiprotocol services can then be dynamically and flexibly transported over metro and long-haul spans, using Tunable and Reconfigurable Optical Add-Drop Multiplexers (T-ROADMs) for optical wavelengths. The 1830 PSS enables transparent L2 Ethernet or FC and L3 IP services over the optical link.
Approved Algorithms
AES Certs. #2828, #2829 and #2830
CVL Certs. #255 and #256
SHS Certs. #2370 and #2371
Other Algorithms
MD5; AES (Certs. #2829 and #2830, key wrapping)
