Rugged Network Encryption Platform HC-8224 100M

Ethernet and IP networks are widely used technologies to interconnect sensors, effectors and command & control units within armed mission forces. The availability of data and communications amongst these actors are decisive for mission success.

Information protection is just as essential! Because sensitive information could be intercepted, permuted or attacked in various ways, resulting in fatal consequences for both your troops and your operation targets. Nowadays such networks interconnect not only stationary offices but also mobile and outdoor network nodes. With the Rugged Network Encryption Platform HC-8224 100M Crypto International AG provides a powerful security platform for all applications in Ethernet or IP networks.

Encryption takes place in a tamper-proof hardware module with symmetric, totally secret algorithms profiled by the customers themselves. This prevents attacks by both cryptographic and mechanical means. The periodic change of the communication keys takes place automatically without interrupting operations.

The rugged unit is especially designed for the use under harsh physical conditions. Its compact design makes it suitable for installations in mobile environments, e. g. vehicles or deployable command & control shelters.

Due to the passive cooling no fan and no air holes are necessary. Together with an optional interface adapter (sealing backpack) the unit is completely dust and watertight which makes it perfectly suitable for outdoor use.

High-security encryption of information being exchanged between two locations.

IP VPN encryption encrypts all information being exchanged between two locations over public and private networks. The tunnel mode approach is used to ensure maximum confidentiality, authenticity and integrity of the data.

IP encryption encrypts all types of communication such as e-mails, VoIP, data or video to the highest standards, thus rendering them unreadable in the network for unauthorised parties. IP VPN encryption is compatible with all IP encryption units up to a transmission rate of 1 Gbps.


Ethernet – efficient networking of sites for fully meshed topologies.

> More

Ethernet has proved highly effective for interconnecting sites on a regional, national and international scale. To address the trend towards constantly bigger data throughput, Crypto International AG continually refines its encryption performance and expands its multipoint solutions. The Ethernet encryption solution on layer 2 takes a multipoint approach to guarantee a data throughput of 10 Gbps without incurring any overheads.

The Ethernet service performs the transportation functions of all multimedia applications and can be E-LAN, E-Line or E-Tree.

Security Management

The Security Management enables the complete administration of the encryption units including their configuration parameters.

Security Management

The encrypted management messages can be transferred to the Crypto units on-line or off-line. All sensitive data in the management database is stored encrypted. Monitoring of the encrypted network is provided with detailed status reports.
