GDC Technology (“GDC”) is pleased to announce that the JPG2K media block in its family of SA-2100 digital cinema servers has been recommended by InfoGard Laboratories for Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 Level 3 Certification.
FIPS 140-2 is the security standard adopted by Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI) to specify security-related requirements on physical security, software, interfaces, key management and cryptographic algorithms. InfoGuard Laboratories is an accredited Cryptographic Module Testing Laboratory under Code 100432-0 of the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP), a system set up by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for accrediting laboratories.
FIPS 140-2 Level 3 compliance is the highest security level specified in the current DCI requirements that protects the digital content in the servers from unauthorized access. The engineering team has worked hard to arrive at this important milestone for DCI compliance. The FIPS 140-2 recommended solution shall be the cornerstone of cost-effective, reliable and secured digital cinema systems accepted by all in the industry.
"InfoGard has completed a scrupulous FIPS140-2 Security Level 3 validation test on the JPG2K board used in GDC digital cinema server," said Ken Kolstad, General Manager, InfoGard Laboratories. "We have submitted our validation test report with confidence that the JPG2K board used in GDC digital cinema server will receive a FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validation certificate." The validation algorithms implemented on the JPG2K board can be viewed on the Cryptographic Algorithm Validation Program (CAVP) validation list website at: http://csrc.nist.gov/groups/STM/cavp/validation.html.
