What is CSfC?
The National Security Agency (NSA) “Commercial Solutions for Classified” (CSfC) program enables organizations to transmit classified information using commercial-grade encryption solutions, eliminating the need for expensive, difficult-to-use classified equipment.
The NSA allows classified information to be transmitted over untrusted networks when protected by two sets of encryption technologies, one layered inside the other.
