Cyphre BTX – Electric
To ensure the safety and reliability of power generation, transmission, and distribution systems, utilities and operators must protect their supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) communications networks. To protect control system devices, organizations are integrating IPsec and TLS Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) with new protocols such as Distributed Network Protocol Secure Authentication (DNP3-SA). Under the IEEE 1815-2012 DNP3 standard, DNP3-SA enables authenticated master-outstation communications.
Cyphre BTX is a hardware-based network encryption solution for site-to-site communications that is delivered as an appliance. Deployed at each site, BTX appliances leverage Cyphre’s patented BlackTIE® security engine that offloads encryption operations to hardware in a way that protects plain text encryption keys from ever being exposed in the CPU or system memory.
