High-Capacity Wire-Speed Encryption Modules

for the 6500 Packet-Optical Platform

Designed to secure today’s web-scale networks, Ciena's High-Capacity Wire-Speed Encryption Modules for the 6500 cost-effectively enable a flexible 10G, 100G, or 200G protocol-agnostic encryption solution. These modules combine ease of operation and administration for a simple-to-implement data protection strategy for Ethernet, Fibre Channel, SONET/SDH, and OTN services.

Features

No. 1

Offers an ultra-low-latency wire-speed encryption solution for 10G/100G/200G highly secure and transparent end-to-end communications

No. 2

Features protocol-agnostic encryption, offering flexibility to support a variety of services including Ethernet, Fibre Channel, SONET/SDH, and OTN

No. 3

Secures all critical in-flight data via FIPS-compliant Advanced Encryption Standards (AES256) encryption solution

No. 4

Leverages enhanced security features, including two distinct sets of keys for authentication and data encryption functions, with a fast encryption key rotation interval of seconds

No. 5

Integrates seamlessly into existing enterprise Public Key Infrastructures (PKIs) using X.509 certificate-based authentication

No. 6

Enables secure management of Encryption-as-a-Service capability by the end-user in carrier- or enterprise-managed infrastructures via an integrated management tool
