PacketLight Networks Awarded FIPS 140-2 Level 2 Compliance for Fiber Optic Networking Encryption Solutions by NIST

Tel Aviv, Israel - October 16, 2019 - PacketLight Networks, a leading provider of DWDM and optical transport network (OTN) solutions, today announced receiving Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 Level 2 validation for its state-of-the-art fiber optic networking Layer-1 encryption solutions, awarded by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

FIPS certification provides external body assurance of PacketLight’s encryption solution, and is adopted as a best practice in many regions around the world, including Europe, APAC, Singapore, Canada and Australia. PacketLight’s products are now eligible for deployment by financial institutions, healthcare facilities, enterprises, and United States federal agencies and government service providers, which require FIPS compliance to meet the appropriate security standards for protecting sensitive data across the fiber network.

“We are excited to see our carrier-grade DWDM and OTN solutions recognized by NIST for their exemplary end-to-end encryption across the fiber,” said Koby Reshef, CEO of PacketLight Networks. “This certification empowers us to provide our leading optical transport and encryption solutions to any organization or industry, both commercial and government, for next generation secured optical network applications or as alien wavelength solutions over existing 3rd party network.”

PacketLight’s solution suite comes embedded with Layer-1 encryption solutions to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of data, based on GCM-AES-256 encryption standards, supporting Diffie-Hellman (DH) key exchange up to every 1-minute. In addition, the solutions support multiple protocols including 10G/40G/100G Ethernet, 8G/16G/32G Fibre Channel, OTU2/OTU2e/OTU3/OTU4 and STM-64/OC-192.
