E-business security provider Cylink Corporation introduced the Cylink Link Encryptor HSSI, the fastest member of Cylink's link encryptor family with encryption rates of up to 52 Mbps.
The CLE HSSI (High-Speed Serial Interface) supports the X.509 digital certificate and 1024 bit DSS digital signature industry standards. X.509 defines what information can go into a certificate and the format in which it is to be recorded. DSS specifies a Digital Signature Algorithm (DSA) which authenticates the integrity of the signed data and the identity of the signatory.
The CLE HSSI secures data transmitted over point-to-point links via high-speed WAN services. The system is transparent to leased-line transmission and terminal equipment and provides data security available for a full range of network devices including routers, front-end processors, CSU/DSUs, PBX trunks, codecs, bridges and multiplexers.
