Centauris CN9000 Series

100Gbps high speed data-in-motion encryption

  • High-assurance, ultra-low latency encryption
  • QRNG-powered 100Gbps encryption
  • Robust, scalable and simple
  • Upgradeable to Quantum-Safe Security
The Centauris CN9000 Series is the first commercially available certified high-assurance 100Gbps Ethernet encryptor that supports the most complex fully meshed topologies – enabling 100% security for Big Data, Cloud and data centre services’ ultra-fast networks.

The Centauris CN9000 100Gbps Ethernet encryptor is the ideal solution for organisations that are seeking high levels of data security across ultra-fast networks.

Providing high quality encryption key generation and distribution, the Centauris CN9000 Series have IDQ’s quantum random number generator (Quantis QRNG). By upgrading the Centauris CN9000 Series with the unconditional security of Cerberis quantum key distribution (QKD) server, IDQ offers next generation security for point-to-point backbone and storage networks for long-term data protection.

The intrinsic key generation and distribution capability of the Centauris CN9000 Series removes reliance on external key servers and provides robust, fault-tolerant security architecture. At the same time, their secure, tamper-proof chassis delivers uncompromising protection to key material held in the encryptors.

Using Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) technology, the Centauris CN9000 Series’ architecture enables real-time data processing and data throughput. This ensures consistent low latency across all packet sizes for optical performance. Throughput is maximized in a zero protocol overhead mode. At 1U unit, they operate with minimal power and rack space consumption.

Working in point-to-point, point-to-multipoint and fully meshed topologies, the Centauris CN9000 series support the encryption of unicast, broadcast and multicast communications.

Compatible with all CN encryptors, the Centauris CN9000 Series encryption cards can be connected to multiple encryptors within a campus or wide area network.

Advanced group key encryption ensures easy management of multi-point environments, with separate keys for different VLANs or MAC addresses.

The Centauris CN9000 Series are easily managed through a simple to use local and remote encryptor management application that provides users with comprehensive and intuitive management functionality. The encryptors can be securely managed either out-of-band – using a dedicated Ethernet management interface or in-band – using the encrypted Ethernet port. Local management using a command line interface is available with a serial console connector.

The built-in operational flexibility provides customers with a choice and avoiding additional costs of third party optical transport equipment in their network (e.g. OTN provider backbone).
