FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CAI Networks' products meet FIPS 140-2 standard
Santa Ana, CA, June 9, 2006 CAI Networks™ has announced
a firmware upgrade for its WebMux and DNSMux product lines that meets
the government required FIPS 140-2 standard, as well as built-in compatibility
for its line of SSL Acceleration Cards.
The Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP), a joint effort between
the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Canadian
Communications Security Establishment (CSE), validates cryptographic modules
to Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 and other
cryptography-based standards. The FIPS 140-2 standard specifies the security
requirements that are satisfied by a cryptographic module utilized within a
security system protecting sensitive, but unclassified, information.
CAI Networks' product lines use the latest industry-standard OpenSSL modules,
which have been certified by NIST. The Open Source Software Institute's
official validation certificate number 642 for
OpenSSL FIPS Object Module is posted at
the NIST FIPS 140-1 and 140-2 Cryptographic Modules Validation List
The OpenSSL FIPS library provides confidentiality, integrity, and message
digest services. OpenSSL FIPS natively supports the following algorithms:
DES, Triple DES, AES, RSA (for digital signatures), D-H, DSA, SHA-1 and
SHA-2. OpenSSL FIPS performs ANSI X9.31 compliant pseudo-random number generation.
CAI Networks' firmware versions that support the FIPS 140-2 standard are
7.3.02 and above for WebMux and 2.1.0 and above for DNSMux.
CAI-RSA3500 and CAI-RSA7000 SSL Acceleration Cards automatically support the
new OpenSSL modules and FIPS-140-2 standard. Firmware updates are avaliable free
of charge for CAI Networks' customers under its products' inclusive 3-year warranty
or extended service plans.
