SafeLogic, an innovator of encryption products for applications in mobile, server, appliance, wearable, and other constrained environments, and a 2018 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Winner, is pleased to announce the CryptoComply has been nominated to compete in the 2019 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program.
Available in a variety of flavors as drop-in replacements for popular open source cryptographic providers, each CryptoComply module has been tested by independently accredited laboratories and certified by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP).
SafeLogic licenses CryptoComply to many of the tech industry’s biggest, best, and brightest companies, from hot startups (Veeam, Singlewire, both 2018 ‘ASTORS’ Award Winners, and Kaminario), to publicly traded stalwarts (Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Symantec, McAfee) and unicorns (Okta, Zscaler, Duo)!
(Looking for an easy way to integrate Suite B and FIPS 140-2 validated encryption into your product? Whether it is a mobile app, device, appliance, software or Cloud solution, SafeLogic simplifies and accelerates the FIPS 140-2 validation process. Courtesy of SafeLogic and YouTube.)
In combination with the CryptoComply software, SafeLogic provides RapidCert, an accelerated FIPS 140-2 validation in the customer’s name with no additional engineering or expertise required.
This certification enables the customer to deploy their product, with CryptoComply providing the internal encryption engine, in the U.S. federal government, anywhere in the public sector, and in regulated industries like healthcare and finance.
Some companies sell encryption products, while consulting firms offer to help with FIPS 140-2 validation, but SafeLogic provides both in perfect harmony.
Designed together and delivered together, SafeLogic is able to save customers many months of time, hundreds of hours of engineering and bureaucracy, and thousands of dollars in hard and soft costs.
CryptoComply FIPS 140-2 validated cryptographic modules were designed for easy installation and instant compliance to U.S. federal government standards.
Vendors who license and deploy CryptoComply become eligible for procurement by Homeland Security (DHS), the Department of Defense (DoD), and throughout the public sector.
Even better, licensees are able to leverage SafeLogic’s RapidCert, the turnkey service that delivers a FIPS 140-2 certificate in the client’s name in less than 8 weeks, accelerating what used to take over a year!
There are other companies that sell encryption, and consultants that help with certification, but nobody else provides the two in tandem, perfectly matched to yield savings in schedule, cost, and overall effort.
This is the advantage of CryptoComply.
CryptoComply delivers a single code library to support cross-operating system platforms.
The same library can be used in applications across a variety of operating system platforms with the same programmatic interface while maintaining the FIPS 140-2 certification.
CryptoComply accomplishes this by maintaining the same code base across multiple FIPS 140-2 validations.
Open Source Compatibility
CryptoComply is now available as a direct, drop-in replacement for OpenSSL, JCE (Java Cryptographic Extension) providers such as Bouncy Castle, SunJCE, and RSA J-SAFE [see CryptoComply for Java], Network Security Services [see CryptoComply for NSS], and Libgcrypt [see CryptoComply for Libgcrypt].
SafeLogic reduces the time required for FIPS 140 validation by as much as 90% when the CryptoComply module is deployed as a replacement for non-validated software.
FIPS 140-2 validations can take over 12 months, but with CryptoComply and the RapidCert process, time-to-compliance can be dramatically reduced.
The company’s target is 8 weeks from start to finish with zero additional effort required from the customer.
Suite B in a Box
CryptoComply provides robust cryptographic algorithm support by meeting the FIPS 140-2 requirements and supporting the Suite B algorithms.
CryptoComply also meets the latest key length requirements defined by FIPS 140-2.
Benefits of Meet CryptoComply
Compliance Requirements Instantly
CryptoComply modules are drop-in replacements for the low-level cryptographic libraries underlying TLS/SSL functions.
Developers merely have to build their code to point to the CryptoComply APIs, so that the calls made by the TLS/SSL stack code are handled by CryptoComply.
Because CryptoComply has already completed FIPS 140-2 validation, products that deploy CryptoComply can accurately claim FIPS 140-2 compliance immediately.
Manage Costs and Time
FIPS 140-2 validations can take well over a year to complete and costs have escalated dramatically, especially as the number of supported platforms increases.
In the dynamic IT security business, these delays and costs can magnify competitive and customer demand pressures.
CryptoComply provides instant FIPS 140-2 compliance because the modules have already undergone the validation process.
Licensing other third-party modules can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars per year and don’t even include validation.
With SafeLogic, customers will enjoy greatly reduced licensing and maintenance costs.
Eliminate Wasted Effort
Validations on a per product basis wastes time, money and effort.
Save valuable resources by incorporating CryptoComply into multiple products or multiple product lines.
Moreover, because CryptoComply is centrally maintained by SafeLogic, on-going support costs are greatly reduced and duplication of effort is eliminated.
CryptoComply validations support a wide variety of operating system platforms and SafeLogic’s aggressive certification roadmap ensures that as new operating system versions are made available, CryptoComply FIPS 140-2 validations will be kept up-to-date.
Maintain Validation Status
With FIPS 140-2 validations, any changes to a traditional module may force re-validation.
Additional platform support may also require a re-validation.
Discovered vulnerabilities in the module code could force a re-validation.
CryptoComply contains only the core cryptographic functions, ensuring that only the most critical, security-relevant changes will necessitate re-validation.
While CryptoComply has been designed to isolate the validation to only the key functions, SafeLogic will continue to stringently maintain validations to support technology changes and new security threats.
