Network Security

Introduction

MACsec, the IEEE standard providing network security for the explosive growth of cloud computing, storage and outsourcing of IP services, has become a top priority for connectivity customers. The most effective tactic for protecting information is to encrypt data as it transits the network and moves around the data center. MACOM’s MACsec PHY products deliver a simple, flexible, low cost and scalable security solution for high speed data center applications.
 

IEEE 802.1AE Media Access Control Security (MACsec) is an industry standard security technology that provides secure communication for Ethernet traffic. MACOM’s wire-speed Ethernet MACsec PHY products offer highly scalable and cost-effective encryption solutions to address the data security issues in carrier, data center and cloud networks. Combining MACOM’s strength in high speed, high performance mixed-signal I/O and industry leading CMOS silicon technology, MACOM’s MACsec PHY products provide line-rate encryption and authentication at a very low power-footprint that enables encryption at wire-speed on every port.  

  • High-speed bump-in-the-wire security at line-rate performance at 10G, 25G, 40G, 100G, 400G and beyond
  • Seamless connection to optical modules and copper cables
  • Lower per-Gig encryption cost and higher protection coverage comparing to IPsec
  • Lower latency
  • NSA approved encryption algorithms for stronger security
  • Simple key management
  • IEEE 802.3AE compliant implementation allows interoperability
