Vitesse Achieves Federal FIPS Security Certification

Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation (Nasdaq: VTSS), a leading provider of advanced IC solutions for Carrier, Enterprise and Internet of Things (IoT) networks, announced that its SynchroPHY™ 1 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) and 10GE PHYs with IntellisecIEEE 802.1AE MACsec technology are the world’s first to achieve Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 197 256-bit AES encryption certification.

FIPS 197 is a de facto benchmark encryption standard issued by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) which specifies the approved cryptographic algorithm to protect electronic data. 256-bit AES offers exponentially better data protection and is required by the U.S. National Security Agency for highly sensitive data. The FIPS certification validates solutions correctly implementing the AES algorithm, enabling OEMs to dramatically accelerate end product qualification and entry into markets with stringent security requirements, including military, government, secure industrial, financial, and HIPAA-compliant IT infrastructure.

“AES 256-bit encryption is a highly secure, internationally recognized data protection standard. FIPS 197 certification demonstrates that Vitesse meets the rigorous security requirements needed to protect critical network infrastructures,” said Martin Nuss, CTO for Vitesse. “Achieving this validation for our SynchroPHY family is another major proof point of Vitesse’s leadership in bringing low cost, scalable security solutions to the Carrier, Enterprise and IoT markets.”

Intellisec™ & VeriTime™: Industry’s Only Secure 1588 Network Solution

Intellisec is the industry’s first technology to enable flow-based IEEE 802.1AE MACsec encryption end-to-end over any network, including multi-operator and cloud-based networks, independent of the network’s awareness of security protocols. Other encryption technologies introduce variable delays, making it impossible to deliver the accurate IEEE 1588v2 timing required by TD-LTE, LTE-Advanced macro and small cell base stations and Smart Grid utility networks. Intellisec is the only ‘secure 1588’ solution available today, combining line-rate AES encryption with Vitesse’s VeriTime™ IEEE 1588v2 nanosecond accurate timing.

Vitesse’s FIPS-certified portfolio includes:

               

• VSC8582

Dual Port GE PHY with Intellisec and VeriTime

• VSC8584

Quad Port GE PHY with Intellisec and VeriTime

• VSC8490

Dual Channel 10 GE PHY with Intellisec and VeriTime

• VSC8491
