1
Caveat
When operated in FIPS mode. The module generates cryptographic keys whose strengths are modified by available entropy. This validation entry is a non-security relevant modification to Cert. #2038.
Security Level Exceptions
  • Physical Security: N/A
  • Mitigation of Other Attacks: N/A
Module Type
Software
Embodiment
Multi-Chip Stand Alone
Description
The Silk Encryption Module is a standalone cryptographic module for the Silk Cloud Data Platform. The module delivers core cryptographic functions and features robust algorithm support. Silk platform offloads to the Cryptographic Module various crypto functions such as authentication, secure key management, data integrity, management traffic encryption and data at rest encryption.
