Embeddable Security Systems - FIPS 140-2 to Type 1

Embeddable Security Systems - FIPS 140-2 to Type 1

Leveraging commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) based technologies, ES-1200ViaSat embeddable security offers complete programmable cryptographic modules protecting sensitive (FIPS 140-2 compliant) to US DoD classified communications. ViaSat embeddable crypto modules are used in a wide range of military, government, and commercial applications and have been optimized for embedment in systems that have low size, weight, and power requirements.

COTS-Based “Security System on a Chip”

Delivering more than just a crypto engine, ViaSat embeddable security modules provide an entire cryptographic system that includes key management, memory, power conditioning, IP optimization, zeroization, trusted bypass and control. All of this capability is packed into a single module that fits in the palm of your hand.

FPGA-Based Technology

Based on Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) technology, ViaSat embeddable security modules are truly programmable and can scale to your specific security requirements. The flexible FPGA-design enables the embeddable crypto module to evolve over time, without hardware changes.

Proven Crypto Modules

ViaSat has a long history of securing classified information for government (Type 1) and commercial (FIPS 140-2) organizations worldwide. At the core of ViaSat embeddable security is the PSIAM™ crypto architecture that is field-proven in multiple US DoD-certified information assurance platforms.

  • MIDS JTRS  Leveraging the PSIAM architecture, ViaSat designed a Crypto Sub-System for the MIDS JTRS Link 16 terminal. This multi-channel, multi-security-level software-defined radio received NSA Type 1 certification and is used by the US Navy and US Air Force.
  • FAB-T Boeing selected ViaSat – and PSIAM – to provide security for the FAB-T (Family of Advanced Beyond Line-of-Sight Terminals) radio system, which is designed to enable secure military information exchange between ground, airborne, and space platforms.
  • Navy CDLS  As a subcontractor to Cubic, ViaSat provided the networking, encryption, and antenna for the CDL Navy program. Second party crypto chips were embedded into the PSIAM design to provide a cost effective CDL system for the Navy.
