TACLANE-FLEX (KG-175F) Encryptor

The Next Generation of Network Encryption

It's Time to Transition to TACLANE®-FLEX, the Smallest, Lightest, Most Efficient 2 Gb/s Aggregate HAIPE

The TACLANE-FLEX customizable encryption platform provides the flexibility needed to support today’s advanced cyber security missions – including insider focused threats and external cyber-attacks. With the same form and fit of the widely deployed TACLANE-Micro, the FLEX is the next generation crypto modernization product in a TRUSTED encryption portfolio. Designed for EFFICIENT performance and SWAP-C, the FLEX is SCALABLE to support 200 Mb/s to 2 Gb/s aggregate throughput and is ENHANCED with advanced features that support additional networking and security capability. 

NEW Power Management Feature provides users greater control over the device's power consumption, resulting in increased power efficiency, and decreased operating and touch temperatures and related lifecycle costs.

The TACLANE-FLEX is NSA Certified to protect information classified Top Secret/SCI and below.

TACLANE-FLEX-Infographic-ToNSA

TACLANE-FLEX is the next generation product in a TRUSTED encryption portfolio. Designed for EFFICIENT performance and SWAP-C, the FLEX is SCALABLE to support tomorrow’s mission requirements and ENHANCED with advanced security and user features.

  • Scalable, Multi-Speed Encryption Platform Supports 200 Mb/s to 2 Gb/s Aggregate Throughput
  • Smallest, Full Featured HAIPE® Encryptor
  • Optional Trusted Sensor and Agile VLAN/Layer 2 Capability
  • NSA Certified for Top Secret / SCI and below

  • MIL-STD ruggedized for the harshest tactical environments, and scalable to support strategic environments
  • Simultaneous HAIPE v4.1 and IPMEIR 1.0 compliant
  • Simultaneous Suite A/B without user intervention
  • Safe Keying Features (CDGSK and KMI OTNK* software upgradeable)
  • ACC Upgradeable*
  • Supported by GEM® One Remote Encryptor Manager
  • Supports Exclusion Keys
  • NEW Power Management Feature (R4.2v3)

*General Dynamics is developing the KMI OTNK capability and ACC compliance to be available via software upgrade.

Optional Feature Enhancements:

Agile Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN): Adds Layer 2 VLAN tagged/ Non-IP Ethernet capability to the TACLANE encryptor enabling simultaneous HAIPE and Layer 2 traffic on a per packet basis without any infrastructure changes. TACLANE encryptors enabled with VLAN still interoperate with standard HAIPE encryptors. Other benefits include: equipment and cost savings, increased bandwidth efficiency, failover and redundancy.

Agile Performance Enhancing Proxy (PEP): Increases network availability and performance over disadvantaged networks. This function isolates the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) problems (underutilized link, reduced transmission rate and TCP fairness) from the rest of the network to accelerate network performance over geostationary satellite links, which provides fast network access for mobile users. 

TACLANE Trusted Sensor Software: Adds cyber sensing capability to the in-line network encryptor via Deep Packet Inspection (DPI). This capability enables packet header and content filtering for malicious data and issues high assurance encrypted alerts to further protect from attacks. Unlike any other IDS/IPS system, the TACLANE Trusted Sensor software is able to support both open source, user unique or government classified rule sets. This in-depth inspection aids network administrators in understanding the overall health of the system and provides the ability to fine tune network filtering to reduce response time and increase defense in depth.
