iDirect Government has a history of operating FIPS 140-2 certified cryptography in its satellite communications products. Starting with the e8000 series of products, iDirect Government has developed, and certified, its cryptographic products with cryptographic module validation program (CMVP) and fielded these products in United States Department of Defense (DoD) networks.

The 9000 series of remote terminals and defense line cards (DLCs) took this development a step further with the inclusion of a separate printed circuit board (PCB) assembly used as an external cryptographic module, with accompanying IP, that are certified under FIPS 140-2 Level 3.

iDirect Government’s next generation of remote terminals feature an extension of this modular development and leverage the programmable security features of the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoCs. Moving from a separate printed circuit board (PCB) assembly to an on-chip solution further improves modularity as well as size, weight, and power (SWaP). In conjunction with iDirect Government’s field tested and previously certified IP, the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoCs can further enhance next-generation products with support for FIPS 140-3.
