Description

DigiSAFE EtherCrypt Series – High Assurance Layer-2 Security

DigiSAFE EtherCrypt is a layer-2 encryptor that protects sensitive data transmission over Ethernet and MetroEthernet networks. It offers full duplex encryption up to 1Gbps using the AES-256 algorithm, and is suitable
for point-to-point, point-to-multipoint and fully-meshed Ethernet networks. It can be easily deployed into existing networks without any changes to the network configuration and supports unicast, multicast and broadcast Ethernet frames.

Designed to the strictest security standards, EtherCrypt includes a tamper-resistant chassis, emergency erasure
and active zeroization. It also incorporates a FIPS 140-2 level 3 certified secure platform module – DigiSAFE TrustCrypt for secure key storage and cryptographic processing.
