New Features!


SecNet 54® is a family of Internet Protocol (IP) communications encryption products designed to keep data, voice and video communications secure. This innovative product suite is based on a modular architecture which allows the user to accommodate a wide variety of scenarios. The SecNet 54 is comprised of two components: a Cryptographic Module (CMOD) that provides all security-critical functions, and an External Module (XMOD) that handles the transport of encrypted data over specific protocols. Its modular design enables the attachment of a variety of XMODs, allowing secure, yet quick and easy utilization of standard communication technologies such as wired 802.3 Ethernet, wireless 802.11 and other protocols. With its versatility, small size, and up to TOP SECRET/SCI wireless and wired communications capabilities, SecNet 54 offers users a costeffective alternative to traditional, bulky in-line network encryption devices. Designated as the KIV-54RM01, the SecNet 54 with Radio Module provides a wireless 802.11a/b/g interface and can be configured as an access point, wireless bridge or as an infrastructure or ad-hoc station. The initial release of SecNet 54 was configured as a secure wireless local area network (SWLAN) device, supporting 802.11a/b/g links up to 54 Mbps and including both CMOD and Radio Module (RMOD) "components. In this configuration, SecNet 54 serves as a Type-1, layer 3 SWLAN encryptor that can be utilized for both tactical and garrison/enterprise applications. Additionally, layer 2 encryption is "supported on the 802.11a/b/g RMOD, including WPA2 PSK and WPA2 Enterprise (client). Based on a modular architecture, the SecNet 54 family is evolving to support added features and capabilities that previously required the use of additional, separate equipment. The latest capabilities include VPN with NAT-T, permitting unfettered operation in COTS environments. This new release also includes VLAN tag pass-through without the use of Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE) tunnels. The end result is that SecNet 54 provides even greater value with no increase in physical size or power. SecNet 54 is designed for use by all branches of the U.S. Department of Defense, federal and homeland security agencies, and the intelligence community. SecNet 54 products are Controlled Cryptographic Items (CCI) that can only be procured by organizations with COMSEC accounts.

Utilizing the Harris Sierra IITM Cryptographic processor, which is NSA-certified for Top Secret/ SCI traffic, the CMOD supports High Assurance Internet Protocol Interoperability Specification (HAIPIS) formatted packets. The SecNet 54 can interoperate with a HAIPIS 1.3.5-compliant Inline Network Encryptor (INE) using Pre-Placed Keys (PPK) or FIREFLy (FF/EFF) vectors.

For Secure Wireless LAN applications, an 802.11a/b/g RMOD is mated with the CMOD, making SecNet 54 a Type-1 SWLAN IP encryptor. The RMOD can be configured as an access point, wireless bridge, infrastructure client, or ad-hoc station. The RMOD is based on a standard 802.11a/b/g chip set and supports data rates up to 54 Mbps. It is compatible with commercial-offthe-shelf (COTS) WLAN equipment and can leverage off existing networks while using HAIPE Tunnels to communicate with other remotely located SecNet 54 devices, or other HAIPIS-compliant COMSEC equipment.

SecNet 54

(Model NuMbeR kiV-54RM01): As an SWLAN device, SecNet 54's Ethernet port is used to connect either to a host computer (station mode) or directly to a LAN (access point and wireless bridge mode). Because the device interfaces to standard 802.3 Ethernet, there is no need for additional drivers--the device is selfhosted.
