Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) Option

QUANTUM XCHANGE and ENGAGE BLACK Partnered QKD Solution

  • QKD is an out-of-band symmetric key delivery method that utilizes quantum properties of a photon over dedicated fiber optic cable to exchange Encryption Keys. QuantumXC’s Phio TX does not require fiber optic cable. Instead, it can deliver out-of-band keys over any TCP/IP connection.

  • The BlackDoor OPS or DUO can utilize either QKD or QuantumXC’s Phio TX to deliver Session Keys to the BlackDoor over an out-of-band connection via the support  of the ETSI QKD Standard GS QKD 014 protocol. The out-of-band connection applies an additional layer of Security to The BlackDoor by encrypting and decrypting session keys with a second key.

  • In a PKI, data will remain encrypted even if the public key is compromised, as the second key remains out-of-band and therefore cannot be compromised.

Key Management

Automated 256 bit key management configurations ensure timely key transitions and eliminate the operational and maintenance costs of managing an encrypted network with manual key distribution.

SNMP

The BlackDoor OPS Encryptor is manageable with SNMP via standard and private MIBs. Large scale deployments of encryption devices with centralized management have made SNMP support a priority.

BlackDoor OPS Overview

The BlackDoor OPS Encryptor supports Point to Point and Multipoint information assurance
configurations with unique dynamic keys while supporting QKD (Quantum Key Distribution). The BlackDoor OPS Encryptor is designed for gigabit wireline or wireless backbone configurations. The BlackDoor meets stringent security requirements while reducing overall network complexity in applications including:

 

• Department of Defense
• Homeland Security
• Telecommunications Providers
• Natural Gas & Electric Power Utility Companies 
    • Oil and Gas Companies

• Banking & Financial Services Institutions
• Transportation Agencies
• Public Safety Networks

 

 

The BlackDoor OPS Encryptor transparently encrypts Ethernet Voice, Video or Data packets, that are destined for a device located on a remote network or a different local network segment. Data packets are AES encrypted at the Link, Network or Transport Layer and then tunneled, bridged or routed to the destination network. At the destination network the packets are decrypted and the original Ethernet packets are securely delivered to the destination Ethernet device.

  BlackDoor OPS Standard Features  

 

OSI Layer Encryption
It is important for an external encryption device to be able to handle encryption at multiple layers of the OSI model. TheBlackDoor OPS Encryptor can interface to all layers with an internal bridge and router and provides secure data encryption at Gigabit throughput levels.

Bridge
Interfaces at Layer 2, non-local packets are encrypted above the MAC layer and then directed to the appropriate destination address by the internal bridge.


Router
Interfaces at Layer 3, packets are encrypted above the Network Layer and then can be dynamically or statically routed to the destination network by the internal router.


Tunnel
Many times network to network security requires an encrypted ‘tunnel’ carrying Ethernet packets over a pre-defined network path. The Black•Door OPS Encryptor permits user creation of a destination table, encrypts the entire incoming packet, and adds the appropriate destination address for correct network transport.

MPLS
The BlackDoor OPSEncryptor can provide "payload only" encryption for MPLS data packets, maintaining the MPLS labels but encrypting the data. It is flexible enough to provide an encrypted ‘tunnel’ for point-to-point MPLS connections or can encrypt at Layer 2 or Layer 3 or both, easy to configure without any down time for network access equipment.


Advanced Encryption Standard
FIPS approved symmetric encryption algorithm that may be used by U.S. Government organizations (and others) to protect sensitive information.
