Raytheon’s Trusted Thin Client system now uses Suite B cryptographic algorithms to protect government data, according to Raytheon Trusted Computer Solutions, a Raytheon subsidiary.
“Suite B was developed as a common set of algorithms for commercial software vendors to use in developing products that meet the highest security standards,” said Ed Hammersla, chief operating officer for Raytheon Trusted Computer Solutions.
“It was designed to protect foreign releasable, U.S.-Only and Sensitive Compartmented Information, all of which are accessed by our Trusted Thin Client customers.”
Trusted Thin Client is a commercial, off-the-shelf, enterprise-class, cross-domain system that enables access to multiple classified or sensitive networks from a single device.
In addition to Suite B, Trusted Thin Client also now supports Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
“Support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 was the next step in our enterprise management strategy for Trusted Thin Client,” Hammersla said. “It is our ability to implement and manage enterprise deployments of Trusted Thin Client that differentiates us from other cross domain vendors.”
