PacketLight Networks, a leading provider of DWDM and optical fiber networking solutions, announces that its 100G/200G solutions with Layer-1 encryption have been certified by the Australasian Information Security Evaluation Program. The solutions are in full compliance with the requirements of the Common Criteria EAL2 augmented with ALC_FLR.1 in the category of Network and Network-Related Devices & Systems.

This certification is adopted within Australia, Oceania, Asia and Europe and provides another validation that PacketLight’s encryption exemplifies global best practices. The 100G/200G solutions were previously certified by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) under its Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 Level 2.

The Layer-1 encryption security offered within the product line ensures it can serve governments, financial institutions, healthcare facilities, critical infrastructure, and other organizations that require secure connectivity to protect sensitive information.

“Being certified for our compliance with Common Criteria EAL2, like the FIPS certification previously awarded, reinforces the fact that our technologies deliver the highest possible levels of security for our customers.” said Koby Reshef, CEO of PacketLight Networks. “This empowers us to share our leading-edge optical transport and encryption solutions as the go-to equipment for government, enterprises, and DCI.”

PacketLight carrier-grade transport solutions are embedded with Layer-1 encryption to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of data, while maintaining full transparency and full traffic bandwidth, with no degradation of the data or latency delays. The solution is based on GCM-AES-256 encryption standards, supporting Diffie-Hellman (DH) key exchange up to every one minute, and supporting multiple protocols including 10/40/100Gb Ethernet, 8/16/32G Fibre Channel, OTU2/OTU2e/OTU3/OTU4 and STM-64/OC-192.
