Security and Encryption

Encrypted Transponder product in a compact 1U chassis offering remote data center connectivity security for Government, Financial institutes, Cloud service providers and ISP.

PacketLight security and encryption products address three major issues of optical link security:

  • Confidentiality- preventing disclosure of information to unauthorized parties
  • Data integrity- ensuring that the message has not been altered
  • Authentication- validating that both parties involved are indeed who they claim to be

PacketLight PL-1000TE-Crypto is a multi-rate, multi-service Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing transponder (DWDM) supporting cryptographic encryption capabilities for 40G, 10G, 1G Ethernet data and 4, 8, 10, 16G FC storage services. With this capability, PacketLight PL-1000TE-Crypto provides added security benefit to DWDM links by encrypting the data passing between the sites.

On the data plane PacketLight PL-1000TE cryptography performs layer-1 AES-256 encryption to full bandwidth passing services. The encryption provides end-to-end transparency of data and clock with a low latency of less than 12usec for 10GE.

On the management plane, PacketLight PL-1000TE-Crypto supports the secured management protocols HTTPS, SSH, SNMPv3 and RADIUS, roll based user password and firewall. The PL-1000TE-Crypto also detects degradation in the fiber link performance for automatic detection of tapping attempt.
