Data-at-Rest Encryption Guide

Today’s defense and aerospace platforms are required to protect critical data-at-rest (DAR) from unauthorized access. Curtiss-Wright offers cost-effective, proven, and certified commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) storage solutions that match various data security requirements, including National Security Agency (NSA) Type 1, NSA Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC), Common Criteria (CC), NATO Information Assurance (NIAPC) and FIPS 140-2.

Following the NSA government off-the-shelf (GOTS) approach, Curtiss-Wright offers DAR solutions with Type 1 encryption. As well, following the NSA COTS approach, Curtiss-Wright offers DAR solutions with CSfC and CC encryption. For simpler encryption requirements, Curtiss-Wright offers a FIPS encryption DAR approach. Note that the Type 1-based GOTS solutions are International Traffic in Arms Regulation (ITAR)-controlled, whereas CSfC, CC, and FIPS solutions are not. As such, the CSfC COTS DAR products, and the vehicles in which they are used, may be more widely deployed globally.

Highly reliable, rugged modules with large storage capacity & cutting-edge encryption

Our encrypted, solid-state network-attached storage (NAS) subsystems are designed to reliably provide file services to clients on an Ethernet network in a harsh environment. These NAS solutions protect data-at-rest (DAR) with the industry’s first NIAP Common Criteria (CC) certified 2-Layer encryption, as well as an option for NSA Type 1 encryption. With terabytes of available storage space and 100k insertion cycle connectors, these scalable rugged Ethernet file servers enable the reliable, secure storage of your critical data.
