AUTOSOL’s CryptoMod is the solution to your FIPS standard security needs, serving as an endpoint security device. CryptoMod’s Consolidated Validation Certificate provides traceability to the NIST and CSEC validation signatories.
In an effort to ensure computer security, the U.S. federal government developed the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS), which is a set of requirements cryptographic modules have to meet in order to be utilized by government agencies. Because our CryptoMod meets the FIPS standards, you know you are working with a high quality endpoint security device.
The validation level and description is as follows, according to the Cryptographic Module Validation Program:
Overall Level: 2
–Mitigation of Other Attacks: N/A
–Tested Configuration(s): N/A
–FIPS Approved algorithms: AES (Cert. #4140); CVL (Cert. #946); DRBG (Cert. #1255); HMAC (Cert. #2713); PBKDF (vendor affirmed); RSA (Cert. #2257); SHS (Cert. #3410)
–Other algorithms: Diffie-Hellman (key agreement; key establishment methodology provides 112 bits of encryption strength); EC Diffie-Hellman (key agreement; key establishment methodology provides 128 bits of encryption strength); NDRNG; RSA (key wrapping; key establishment methodology provides 112 bits of encryption strength); PBKDF (non-compliant)
Multi-Chip Stand Alone
“AUTOSOL’s CryptoMod is an end-point security device that protects data exchanged between remote industrial field devices and a centralized SCADA host. Installed in front of equipment, the CryptoMod encrypts traffic for the entire length of an industrial network. It provides authentication for controlling network access, integrity when data is in motion, and confidentiality. It is a CSA Class 1 Div. 2 Gr. ABCD device and a terminal server, so it can fit any existing industrial network. It has a hardware watchdog timer and the capability for remote configuration, management, and updates.” – Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP)
