Description
The CN4010, CN4020, CN6010, CN6140, CN9100 and CN9120 are high-speed hardware encryption platforms that secure data over twisted-pair and optical Ethernet networks. The modules support line rates from 10Mb/s to 100Gb/s. All models except CN4010 are equipped with pluggable transceivers to support a variety of optical network interfaces. Data privacy is provided by FIPS approved AES algorithms in CFB, CTR and GCM modes. Additional transmission security is provided via TRANSEC (Traffic Flow Security) which can be used to remove patterns in network traffic and prevent traffic analysis attacks.
