U.S. Department of Defense Agency Selects RSA Security Encryption Software

  • 29 March, 2006 10:35

<p>RSA Security Inc. (Nasdaq: RSAS) today announced that the National Security Agency selected RSA® BSAFE® Crypto-C Micro Edition (ME) encryption software for use in a classified communications project.</p>
<p>RSA BSAFE cryptographic tool kits such as RSA BSAFE Crypto-C ME are developed in Brisbane, Queensland by RSA Security’s Developer Solutions Group.</p>
<p>RSA BSAFE Crypto-C ME software meets the Suite B cryptography requirements issued by the National Security Agency (NSA). RSA Security believes that its ability to meet these requirements today, the company’s commitment to delivering Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS)-validated versions of its products across a broad range of operating platforms, and its ability to meet the requirements of constrained and harsh environments were all critical to the National Security Agency’s selection of RSA BSAFE Crypto-C ME software.</p>
<p>Introduced at RSA Conference 2005, Suite B provides a common set of cryptographic algorithms that the technology industry may leverage to build solutions that meet the security needs of U.S. federal government organisations. In addition, Suite B cryptography requirements provide assurance that U.S. government agencies have access to technology solutions that are both secure and interoperable.</p>
<p>“As organisations worldwide, including U.S. government agencies, strive to better protect their most sensitive information, it is vital that encryption technologies support emerging standards and requirements, such as Suite B,” said Rick Welch, senior vice president and general manager, Developer Division at RSA Security. “Suite B conformance, and the National Security Agency’s decision to select RSA BSAFE encryption technology, demonstrate RSA Security’s ability to deliver solutions that meet the unique requirements of our customers, including agencies within the U.S. federal government.”</p>
