RSA BSAFE ENCRYPTION SOFTWARE EARNS FIPS 140-1 CERTIFICATION.

RSA BSAFE Crypto-J 3.3.3 encryption software has received validation that it conforms to the Federal In formation Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-1 security requirements for cryptographic modules. FIPS 140 validation through the FIPS 140-1 Cryptographic Module Validation Program is required before any technology vendor can provide federal departments and agencies with information technology products. This requirement ensures agencies use only tested cryptographic products and applications to protect sensitive information in their computer and telecommunications systems.

With the FIPS validation, RSA BSAFE Crypto-J 3.3.3 licensees may use its FIPS-approved standard public-key encryption algorithms, symmetric encryption algorithms, message digest algorithms and other important security components to obtain FIPS 140-1 validation for their own products. The RSA BSAFE Crypto-J 3.3.3 validation removes many procurement and technology deployment barriers for third parties developing and selling secure software applications to U.S. and Canadian government agencies. As a result, independent software vendors (ISVs) that use the FIPS-validated RSA BSAFE Crypto-J 3.3.3 SDK can sell their Java-based products to federal agencies while reducing the significant expense and time of submitting their algorithms for FIPS validation. They can even avoid the FIPS 140 validation process for the application altogether by using the entire RSA BSAFE Crypto-J validated module.

"The FIPS 140-1 validation is an important step for RSA BSAFE Crypto-J software because it provides a standard for federal organizations using security systems that provide protection for sensitive or valuable data designed for the Java environment," said Victor Chang, vice president of the Developer Solutions division at RSA Security. "This validation demonstrates RSA Security's commitment to provide advanced security technology to address our customers' requirements. Our encryption software is designed to provide all developers, including Java developers, with unmatched levels of quality and performance for their business applications."

The RSA BSAFE line of security software is embedded in today's most successful Internet applications, including web browsers, wireless devices, commerce servers, operating systems, e-mail systems and virtual private network products. Built to provide implementations of standards such as SSL, S/MIME, WTLS, IPSec and PKCS, RSA BSAFE products can save developers time and reduce risk in their development schedules.
