Features

The TACLANE-Nano will support optional software such as VLAN and TCP Performance Enhancing Proxy (PEP). Remote management and configuration is supported via the GEM® One Encryptor Manager to simplify operation and enable centralized secure management of all of your TACLANE devices on the network.

Key Features

  • Designed to protect information classified TS/SCI and Below

  • Simultaneous HAIPE v4.2.5 and IPMEIR 1.0 compliant

  • Simultaneous Suite A/B without user intervention

  • 50 Mb/s Throughput (100 Mb/s Aggregate) Greater throughput achievable dependent upon traffic mix

  • Small size (1.2”H x 3.5”W x 2.25”D)

  • Low power (5 Watts typical)

  • Hot swappable/redundant power from USB or Power over Ethernet (POE)

  • Embedded Agile TCP Performance Enhancing Proxy (PEP) for disadvantaged networks

  • Remote Zeroization Control Interface for Unattended Operations

  • Supports Agile VLAN feature for Layer 2/Layer 3 agility and advanced networking

  • Safe keying features including Classified/Unclassified Device Generated Shared Key (DGSK) and Exclusion Keys (EKs)
