The techniques criminals use to tap fiber optic lines and steal sensitive data are becoming increasingly sophisticated. Since physical access to the fiber optic line cannot be ruled out in many cases, powerful encryption is required, as offered by the muxponder cards from Pan Dacom Direkt.
With its hardware-based AES 256 bit Layer 1 encryption, the muxponder cards are ideal for use on the company's own fiber optic infrastructure or on the leased dark fiber - whenever confidential data is transmitted.
Pan Dacom Direkt's muxponder cards handle all common protocols used in modern data center and site interconnections, including mixed operation of 1/10/25/40/100/200/400 Gigabit Ethernet, 4/8/16/32G Fibre Channel and 5/10/14/25G Infiniband. Thanks to the hardware-based Layer 1 encryption, the muxponder cards also meets ultra-low latency requirements with only 75μs.
The muxponder cards from Pan Dacom Direkt of the SPEED-MUX series support you in meeting the most important security goals: Authenticity, Identification, Integrity and Confidentiality. The AES 256 bit Layer 1 encryption prevents unauthorized reading, while the Galois Counter Mode (GCM) guarantees a symmetric encryption application using block ciphers. An individually importable master key additionally provides effective protection against man-in-the-middle attacks.
The encryption configuration area is completely separated from the regular configuration area, both physically via a dedicated Secure Micro USB port and logically via dedicated credentials. Thanks to separate user roles and access to encryption management, you retain key sovereignty at all times.
Despite the complex encryption technology, the operation of the muxponder cards does not require any special expert knowledge: Thanks to the Crypt Manager, encryption can be activated in just two steps. The encryption of the data stream takes place automatically afterwards.
Cost-effective AES 256 Layer 1 encryption on an existing fiber infrastructure or leased dark fiber line.
