Mykotronx announces Award of High Grade Crypto Processor Program.
Krypton is part of the Multilevel Information System Security Initiative (MISSI) program and is considered to be the government's long-term "Fortezza Plus" cryptographic solution. In addition to performing the high grade algorithms required for processing classified data, the Krypton PCMCIA card will be interoperable with the Fortezza Crypto Card. The total value of the contract is $5.1 million.
Krypton is the government's high grade cryptographic program to develop and produce several new VLSI chips and PCMCIA cryptographic cards for use in the classified portion of the Defense Message System (DMS). The Krypton cards will also be used in other applications such as the government's next generation secure voice terminal called the Secure Terminal Equipment (STE).
"Mykotronx has a great reputation for developing and producing VLSI chips and cryptographic products for our customers," said John Droge, vice president of program development, Mykotronx. "This award is an important part of the government's interoperability desires with DMS. However, the Krypton PCMCIA cards will be used for more than e-mail in the DMS. They will be used as link encryptors in communications systems, multimedia encryptors, and as security tokens and cryptographic engines for products such as the STE."
