CAI Networks' products meet FIPS 140-2 standard

Santa Ana, CA, June 9, 2006 CAI Networks™ has announced a firmware upgrade for its WebMux and DNSMux product lines that meets the government required FIPS 140-2 standard, as well as built-in compatibility for its line of SSL Acceleration Cards.

The Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP), a joint effort between the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Canadian Communications Security Establishment (CSE), validates cryptographic modules to Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 and other cryptography-based standards. The FIPS 140-2 standard specifies the security requirements that are satisfied by a cryptographic module utilized within a security system protecting sensitive, but unclassified, information.

CAI Networks' product lines use the latest industry-standard OpenSSL modules, which have been certified by NIST. The Open Source Software Institute's official validation certificate number 642 for OpenSSL FIPS Object Module is posted at the NIST FIPS 140-1 and 140-2 Cryptographic Modules Validation List (

The OpenSSL FIPS library provides confidentiality, integrity, and message digest services. OpenSSL FIPS natively supports the following algorithms: DES, Triple DES, AES, RSA (for digital signatures), D-H, DSA, SHA-1 and SHA-2. OpenSSL FIPS performs ANSI X9.31 compliant pseudo-random number generation.

CAI Networks' firmware versions that support the FIPS 140-2 standard are 7.3.02 and above for WebMux and 2.1.0 and above for DNSMux. CAI-RSA3500 and CAI-RSA7000 SSL Acceleration Cards automatically support the new OpenSSL modules and FIPS-140-2 standard. Firmware updates are avaliable free of charge for CAI Networks' customers under its products' inclusive 3-year warranty or extended service plans.
