Cipher X Encryption Solution Seamlessly Overlays on Networks
The Cipher X 7220 is the 10 Gb/s model of the family of TCC Cyber Security Appliances. The Cipher X 7220 brings a higher performance encryption solution to networks that need multi-Gigabit performance. Fully interoperable with the Cipher X 7210 and 7211, the Cipher X family offers network security from 1 Gb/s up to 10 Gb/s. The Cipher X 7220 has an expansion port to enable security solutions for other network protocols.
The Cipher X 7220 enables data to securely transit networks over fiber, satellite or microwave, including multicast applications such as secure video conferencing. The wire speed Cipher X 7220 is a tunnel-less, Layer 2, 3 or 4 solution, which overlays on top of existing or new networks — no network architecture changes are required.
Multiprotocol Flexibility and Scalable Performance
The Cipher X 7220 hosts an available I/O slot to enable other Layer 1 or 2 network security solutions such as SDH or OTN to be deployed. This flexibility enables operators with complex network systems to ease logistics and reduce training costs by using a single platform on multiple networks.
The Cipher X 7220 is a 10 Gb/s Cyber Security Appliance. Used in conjunction with the Cipher X 7210 (100 Mb/s) and 7211 (1 Gb/s) network security devices, the Cipher X family provides the flexibility and scalability to meet evolving business needs.
Encryption with Superior-Grade Security
The Cipher X 7220 is a FIPS 140-2 Level 3 designed encryption solution with multiple layers of protection. The AES 256-bit algorithm in Galois Counter Mode provides superior-grade encryption and authentication. TCC's National Algorithm Support Program (NASP) is available for algorithm customization.
A three-tier symmetric key management architecture integrating the Cipher X 7220 and KEYNET Network Security Manager maximizes network security. The Cipher X 7220’s embedded key vault processor securely manages system security parameters, generates local data encryption keys and ensures cryptographic integrity, while KEYNET Network Security Manager provides security configuration and key management.
CipherONE® Security Policy management allows users to set infinite individual Security Policies for the Cipher X 7220 Policy Enforcement Engine to encrypt, block or pass-through traffic, based on the Ethernet Frame and IP Packet headers information, including VLAN tags; Source & Destination addresses; Protocol and Port numbers. Policies can be Point-to-Point, Global, or Single-Ended to easily secure unicast or multicast traffic.
