Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity introduces R&S®SITLine ETH NG, a new generation of encryption technology with VS-NfD (RESTRICTED) approval

With R&S SITLine ETH NG, IT security expert Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity presents its latest generation of high-speed network encryptors with approval up to VS-NfD (RESTRICTED), NATO RESTRICTED and RESTREINT UE/EU RESTRICTED classification level. The elementary security solution is future proof and offers scalable transmission rates from 10 Mbit/sec to 40 Gbit/sec. A central security management system ensures simple and efficient operation.

Munich, November 26, 2020 - In the course of the digitalization of public authorities, the paths of a document become faster but also less controllable. This is why certified solutions are required that combine security, efficiency and performance. R&S SITLine ETH NG is approved by the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) up to classification level VS-NfD (RESTRICTED), NATO RESTRICTED and RESTREINT UE/EU RESTRICTED. The Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity Ethernet encryptors are "Security Made in Germany". With 30 years of crypto expertise, the manufacturer is one of the pioneers in the field of network encryption.

Basic security with layer 2 encryption

With R&S SITLine ETH NG, Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity provides application- and user-independent basic security for cross-location network communications for government agencies and enterprises. The variants of the product line are called R&S SITLine ETH-L, an encryptor for up to four independent 10 Gbit/sec lines, and R&S SITLine ETH-S, a compact system for lines with up to 1 Gbit/sec. The solution encrypts communications already at layer 2 level, thus also provides protection against operating errors if, for example, the wrong security level is selected for email transmissions of sensitive content. The network encryptor thus also guarantees users independence from telecommunications providers and component suppliers. In terms of total cost of ownership, R&S SITLine ETH NG offers advantages over alternative IPSec-based solutions: The modern key concept requires no additional key management and combines high security with high reliability. Thanks to the key concept, there is no central point of attack in the system and no single risk of security failure. Due to the plug & play technology, configuration effort and installation costs are low. The compact design and different device classes also save space and energy costs.

High user-friendliness through central security management

The solution is particularly user-friendly thanks to its central management: R&S Trusted Objects Manager, already known from other Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity products, now also serves as security management system (SMS) for the product line R&S SITLine ETH NG. The server acts as the certificate authority (CA) of a PKI (public key infrastructure) and is operated in a secure environment (data center with access control).
