NIKSUN Awarded Three Cryptographic Validations

Published on: 06-27-2017

Princeton, NJ - June 27th, 2017 - NIKSUN® Inc., the world leader in developing real-time and forensics-based cyber security and network performance monitoring solutions, is pleased to announce that the company has been granted three certificates for its implementation of approved cryptographic algorithms. These certificates are a momentous recognition that NIKSUN is fully compliant with and satisfies the standards set forth by the U.S. government.

This set of certifications are issued by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) after approval by the U.S. government. They are pursuant to the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) and Cryptographic Algorithm Validation Program (CAVP), which are a set of publicly announced standards for use in computer systems by government contractors, non-military government agencies, and vendors who work with these agencies.

NIKSUN’s NIKOS FIPS Object Module, a software library that provides cryptographic services to a vast array of NIKSUN solutions, received certificates for CVL #1194 (Diffie-Hellman SP 800-56A without KDF), RSA #2455 (SigGen and SigVer), and RSA #2458 (KeyGen), further accrediting it as the most dependable platform on the market today.

“These certificate validations are an significant step for NIKSUN towards meeting strict guidelines for the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) Common Criteria certification,” stated Dr. Parag Pruthi, NIKSUN’s Founder and CEO. “Being compliant with CAVP further reinforces that NIKSUN, as a chosen provider of full packet capture at many high-profile commercial, government, and service provider customers, is committed to providing the necessary security protection required both today and in the future.”

The independent algorithm implementations were successfully performed and tested as part of the NIST CAVP by Booz Allen Hamilton, a NIST-accredited testing laboratory.
