TeamF1 Receives FIPS Cryptographic Algorithm Validation Certificates for its Krypto-Lite Library
Embedded Security Leader Makes it Easier for OEMs to Meet Government Security
FREMONT, Calif. - July 28, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- TeamF1, Inc. (www.TeamF1.com),
the high-performance embedded networking and security software company, announced today
that it has received algorithm validation certificates from the U.S. National Institute
of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Communications Security Establishment (CSE) in
Canada. Krypto-Lite, an implementation of Federal Information Processing Standards
(FIPS) conformant cryptographic algorithms, is used in many of the company's network
security and authentication products.
TeamF1's Krypto-Lite library is a FIPS 140-2 compliant, standards-based, high
performance and modular software cryptographic algorithms library. It has been
validated by NIST through its NVLAP accredited Cryptographic Module Testing
laboratories as conforming to the specifications of the following standards:
- Advanced Encryption Standard (AES, FIPS 197)
- Triple Data Encryption Standard (TDES or "Triple-DES", FIPS 46-3)
- Digital Signature Standard (DSA, FIPS 186-2), and
- Secure Hash Standard (SHA, FIPS 180-2).
"Successful validation of our core cryptographic library implementation is a very
important milestone for us," said TeamF1 President Mukesh Lulla. "We are pleased to
become one of the very few software vendors in the embedded space to offer validated
algorithm implementations, which is a pre-requisite for FIPS 140-2 validation of a
system -- a requirement for systems used by federal agencies. This underscores our
relentless commitment to security standards and attests to the highest levels of
conformance of our network security & authentication products."
Krypto-Lite includes several symmetric and asymmetric ciphers as well as cryptographic
hash algorithm implementations, and is specifically tailored for embedded use and
hardware acceleration. Certificate details for Krypto-Lite can be found at
Krypto-Lite is available for immediate licensing in source code form as a part of
TeamF1's security products, including SSHield SSH, SSLimSecure SSL, V-IPSecure
IPsec/IKE, AuthAgent X.509 and AuthAgent Kerberos. For more details on these products,
