Independence, MO (PRWEB) April 30, 2012
GoldKey Security Corporation, a leading provider of hardware-based two-factor authentication solutions, today announced that it will support an upcoming version of the Cisco® AnyConnect® Secure Mobility VPN Client.
The new VPN client will allow encryption of IP traffic based on what is called “Suite B,” the set of encryption algorithms designated by the National Security Agency (NSA) for Department of Defense communications. The Cisco VPN Client will be able to utilize the Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) capabilities of GoldKey Security Tokens to authenticate users.
Suite B cryptography secures network traffic using encryption based on the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) using 128-bit or 256-bit keys, digital signatures with the Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm using curves with 256-bit and 384-bit prime moduli, key exchange using the Elliptic Curve Diffie-Hellman method, and hashing (digital fingerprinting) based on the Secure Hash Algorithm-2 (SHA-2).
The NSA has stated that these algorithms together provide adequate information assurance for classified information. NSA Suite B cryptography for IPsec has been published as standard in RFC 4869 and has gained acceptance in the industry.
