Cryptographic Module Validation Program CMVP

Certificate #2791


Module Name
CN8000 Multi-slot Encryptor
FIPS 140-2
 Historical Reason
Moved to historical list due to sunsetting
Overall Level
When operated in FIPS mode.
Module Type
Multi-Chip Stand Alone
The CN8000 is a high-speed multi-slot hardware encryption platform that secures data over Ethernet and Fibre Channel networks. The CN8000 supports up to 10 high speed encryption slots. Each slot can be configured by the user to support 1-10Gb/s Ethernet or 1-4Gb/s Fibre Channel. Data privacy is provided by FIPS approved AES CFB and CTR algorithms. GCM is also available for applications that demand authentication.
