WaveLogic Encryption.

Secure your in-flight data with WaveLogic Encryption. Always-on and where you need it.

WaveLogic Encryption.

What do you get when you combine market-leading coherent optics with proven encryption technology on Ciena’s flagship 6500 Packet-Optical Platform? The industry’s first coherent 100G/200G optical encryption solution.

As a key component of Ciena’s Assured Networking strategy, WaveLogic Encryption is a simple-to-implement in-flight data protection solution with advanced security capabilities. This solution leverages the unmatched performance and programmability of Ciena’s WaveLogic 3 Extreme chipset to efficiently meet all of your infrastructure needs. WaveLogic Encryption extends to Ciena’s Waveserver enabling 400G of wire-speed encryption capacity in 1RU for simple, secure, rack-and-stack web-scale DCI applications.

Effortless encryption. Period.

Now it’s easy to evolve from cumbersome to commonplace encryption deployments. Ciena’s WaveLogic Encryption delivers an ultra-low latency, protocol-agnostic, wire-speed optical encryption solution to match today’s high-capacity infrastructure needs—from 10G to 100G, 200G, and beyond.

Deploy Ciena’s simple-to-implement WaveLogic Encryption for:

  • Maximum throughput with no impact to performance
  • Transparent transport of any protocol without additional hardware
  • Set-and-forget approach with always-on encryption
  • Seamless integration into existing enterprise Public Key Infrastructures (PKIs) using X.509 certificate-based authentication
  • Secure management by the end-user via a dedicated easy-to-use interface

Make hackers weep with ironclad optical encryption

In today’s web-scale communications, your in-flight data is secure as long as you can keep the hackers out. How robust is your optical encryption?

Ciena’s WaveLogic Encryption solution is purpose-built with the highest level of in-flight data security in mind to protect all of your information and lockout the bad actors:

  • Offers external third-party certification to ensure that it is implemented with industry-standard algorithms, including a FIPS-certified AES-256 encryption engine
  • Deploys two distinct, independent sets of keys for authentication and data encryption functions
  • Provides fast encryption key rotation interval down to the second (instead of minutes)
  • Leverages the highest security cryptography algorithms available today, including Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) algorithms

Painless encryption management

WaveLogic Encryption is a complete solution that includes MyCryptoTool, a simple-to-use, dedicated encryption management end-user portal designed for distributed management of the network. This approach enables secure management of Encryption-as-a-Service capability by the end-user in carrier-managed or enterprise-managed networks.

MyCryptoTool ensures that only the owner of the data—the end-user—maintains full control of the encryption security parameters associated with their critical data. It’s easier than ever to issue new keys or certificates as required by your security policies—and you can monitor your encrypted services on an end-to-end basis with security-specific alarms and logs.
