Description
The CN6000 Series are high-speed hardware encryption platforms that secure data over optical and twisted-pair Ethernet networks. Models included are the CN6100 10G Ethernet; operating at a line rate of 10Gb/s and the CN6040 1G Ethernet; operating at a line rate of up to 1Gb/s. Data privacy is provided by FIPS approved AES CFB and CTR algorithms. GCM is also available for applications that demand authentication. TRANSEC (aka Traffic Flow Security or TFS) can be used to remove patterns in network traffic and prevent traffic analysis.
