Critical Information Protection: Encrypt Serial Data Communication Links with the BlackSER AES, a serial data AES encryptor with FIPS 140-2 Level 3 Security
Aptos, CA – June 21, 2018
Engage Black announces the Black•SER AES, an in-line Serial Data Encryptor with FIPS 140-2 Level 3 compliant cryptography and hardware. Serial data received on the DCE interface is encrypted using a 256-bit AES key and sent out the DTE interface. Serial data received on the DTE interface is decrypted using a 256-bit AES key and sent out the DCE interface.
Black•SER AES's bump-in-the-wire design secures SCADA connections from unauthorized access, control, eavesdropping, and malicious attack by authenticating and encrypting their serial data communications:
Engage Black’s Black•Vault Hardware Security Module provides the Cryptographic foundation for the Black•SER AES. Sophisticated Key management: Generation, Wrapped Exportation/Importation, Storage and Tamper Zeroization ensures that Trust is warranted.
“The FIPS compliance which enforces stringent Multi-Factor authenticated AES key creation and handling achieves a classified level of security.” Mark Doyle Engage Black CEO. “The Encryption of Serial Communication Control links is mandatory for Critical Infrastructure Protection.”
