Federally-accredited security for Ixia's Network Packet Brokers


All of Ixia's Network Packet Brokers are now Common Criteria, FIPS 140-2 and DoDIN APL listed. Government agencies, military, and other security-conscious organizations can be assured that these visibility solutions meet the highest standards of security integrity. The most recent certifications utilize a software module approach, which means these new certificates will always benefit from the latest software enhancements. The certificates will be valid on all Vision NPBs, including Vision Edge OS and future Vision NPBs.

What is FIPS 140-2?

FIPS 140-2 is a set of standards created by the NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) and the CCCS (Canadian Centre for Cyber Security) that outlines security requirements for cryptographic solutions and modules. Products are tested against eleven areas of security requirements related to the design and implementation of a cryptographic module with each module receiving a security level rating from 1 to 4.

What is Common Criteria Certification?

The Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation (abbreviated as Common Criteria or CC) is an international standard for computer security certification. Keysight has achieved National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) Common Criteria (CC) certification for its line of Vision Packet Brokers. This accomplishment signifies that Keysight Visibility products meet the stringent security requirements of all government agencies, and serves as another significant demonstration of Ixia’s leadership in the federal market.

What is the DoDIN APL?

The Department of Defense created the Department of Defense Information Network Approved Products List (DoDIN APL) in 2011 to identify solutions that were tested and trusted to address government security concerns.

The DoDIN APL represents the agency’s master list of products available for purchase that are secure, trusted, and approved for deployment within the DoD’s technology infrastructure. Keysight's Vision Network Packet Brokers are on the list, making high performance, easy to use packet brokers available to government and federal customers.
