The National Security Agency (NSA) has launched the Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) program enabling organizations to transmit classified information (up to Top Secret) using commercial-grade encryption solutions. CSfC solutions, which must include two layers of Suite B cryptography from two different platforms, enable access to classified information using inexpensive, commercial technologies.

Benefits

  • Simplifying equipment handling/security procedures
  • Simplifying key management
  • Enabling US coalition partners to access classified information without taking possession of controlled cryptographic items
  • Enabling wireless access to classified information without expensive, slow, end-of-life hardware products

However, these systems can be complex to set up and maintain. PacStar IQ-Core Software CSfC Plug-in can overcome the added complexity and training burden imposed by the two layers of encryption by simplifying the setup, configuration, and management of the underlying equipment used in CSfC solutions.

Capabilities

  • Enable the deployment of CSfC solutions, with attendant benefits, while reducing the amount of added
    complexity and training
  • Provide a unified interface (“a single pane of glass”) to underlying equipment from multiple vendors
  • Provide means to monitor multiple sets of equipment, in fixed/ branch offices and deployed settings, enabling lightly trained operators to manage the equipment
  • VPN setup wizards
  • VPN configuration at a glance
  • VPN monitoring/troubleshooting
  • Certificate management
