Optical transport solution with post-quantum cryptography revealed
Adva has launched an optical transport solution secured by post-quantum cryptography (PQC).
The FSP 3000 ConnectGuard optical encryption solution now protects data against cyberattacks from quantum computers that could break today’s cryptographic algorithms. The quantum-safe security technology relies on a hybrid key exchange system, combining PQC algorithms with classical encryption methods. Built for crypto-agility, the solution is ready for software updates in the future, helping it to deliver the robust network protection now and in the future.
FSP 3000 ConnectGuard uses the traditional Diffie-Hellman protocol combined with a newly developed algorithm based on the quantum-safe McEliece cryptosystem. This enables it to produce encryption keys that even powerful quantum computers will struggle to crack. As well as delivering data integrity with quantum-safe Layer 1 AES-256 protection, the FSP 3000 ConnectGuard encryption solution is designed to ensure minimal impact on latency, throughput and performance.
It is additionally easily deployable over long-haul and multi-operator links.
