NSA Certifies Smallest, Lightest IP Encryptor from General Dynamics


December 10, 2007 SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - The National Security Agency (NSA) has certified General Dynamics' new TACLANE®-Micro (KG-175D), industry's smallest and lightest in-line network encryptor. The encryptor secures communication and data classified at Top Secret level and below on commercial, military and government Internet Protocol networks. Designed for mobile or fixed platforms where space and power are limited, the rugged KG-175D can be managed remotely and is compliant with the NSA's High Assurance Internet Protocol Encryptor Interoperability Specification (HAIPE® IS) version 1.3.5.

"The KG-175D encryptor is a critical 'what's next' device for protecting information because it fully secures mobile networks in tactical, airborne and shipboard environments where space is at a premium," said John Cole, vice president of General Dynamics C4 Systems.
