Optical Network Encryption

KEYNET Security Management for Fiber Optic Network Encryption

Remotely configure and monitor DSD 72B-SP SONET/SDH encryption devices for SONET/SDH networks for secure communications. The same KEYNET Optical Manager system can manage any combination of DSD 72B-SP(RI), DSD 72B-SP(I), or DSD 72A-SP(STM) SONET/SDH encryption appliances.

The KEYNET Optical Manager remotely manages keys, configures DSD 72B-SP SONET/SDH encryption devices, and monitors these same devices. Using KEYNET, an authenticated, role-based KEYNET operator can perform virtual container link and path reconfiguration, as well as execute DSD 72B-SP SONET/SDH encryption device monitoring and management and maintenance.

All key management and device control messages are secured via AES-256 encrypted and SHA-256 authenticated SNMP messages. These high security messages facilitate remote management while maintaining an optimum level of both access control and message security.
