TACLANE-C175N CHVP Encryptor

The TACLANE®-C175N Cryptographic High Value Product (CHVP) encryptor bridges the need for high-assurance Type 1 security and interoperability with less restrictive handling requirements, providing a low-cost alternative for secure, classified communications.

FAIRFAX, Va. – General Dynamics Mission Systems announced today that its TACLANE-C175N CHVP encryptor has been certified for use by the National Security Agency (NSA). This new, small-form-factor HAIPE® encryptor provides high-assurance security, interoperability, and mission-focused features in a single device with less handling requirements and safe-keying capabilities that secure classified information. Designed and certified to the NSA’s high-assurance security standards, the TACLANE-C175N encryptor is a non-controlled, cryptographic item (non-CCI) device that protects voice and data communications classified secret and below.

Consistent with the Committee on National Security Systems Instruction (CNSSI) 4031, the TACLANE-C175N CHVP requires less handling and accountability compared with other Type 1 encryption products, expanding the use of certified devices in high-risk environments where there is greater probability of unplanned leave behind in unmanned operations or tactical units. The TACLANE-C175N CHVP solution offers trusted security, and provides multiple performance and feature benefits, including:

  • 200 Mb/s aggregate throughput supporting analytics and video streaming at the network edge
  • Military standard ruggedization and size, weight and power (SWaP) optimization
  • Advanced networking and performance even in disadvantaged networks
  • Tamper and TEMPEST protections
  • Adverse event handling features such as Render Useless Zeroize (RUZ) and Heartbeat Signaling to ‘brick’ the device
  • Lower total cost of ownership as compared to Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) solution with minimal network integration, maintenance and no yearly registration
  • Remote configuration, management and control of device and keying using GEM® One Encryptor Manager

The TACLANE-C175N CHVP encryptor is now available for purchase from General Dynamics Mission Systems. For more information, contact INFOSEC.
