The Centauris CN6000 encryptors may be upgraded to quantum cryptography through the addition of the Cerberis3 Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) System to ensure that the solutions are quantum-safe for the long-term protection of sensitive data. This also ensures investment-protection of the encryptors. Such quantum cryptography is provably secure, ensures anti-eavesdropping detection and provides long-term forward secrecy against brute force hacking and attacks by quantum computers.
Additional security is provided by advanced anti-tamper proofing and physical protections, as well as best-practice separation of duties.
The tamper resistant Centauris CN6000 series utilise robust AES 256-bit algorithms, are certified Common Criteria and FIPS 140-2 Level 3.
The intrinsic key generation and distribution capability in the Centauris CN6000 series encryptors removes reliance on external key servers, providing a robust, fault-tolerant security architecture. The rugged tamper-resistant chassis also gives uncompromising protection to key material held in the encryptors.
Full interoperability with the Centauris CN series encryptors enables customers to standardise on one platform to protect transmitted data across large hub and spoke or meshed networks.
