Las Vegas—Mar 30, 2009
FIPS 140-2 Level 3 Certification Received for the Media Block of the Qube XP-D Digital Cinema Server
Qube Cinema achieves security milestone that is key to full DCI Certification
Qube Cinema, Inc. announced that the Media Block used in its Qube XP-D Digital Cinema Server has recently received the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 Level 3 validation certificate.
The FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certification for the Media Block is a key requirement of the DCI Specification and is awarded by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) which established the Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP) that validates cryptographic modules to Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS). After it underwent rigorous testing by InfoGard Laboratories, an accredited cryptographic module testing laboratory, the test report for the Media Block was submitted to NIST, which recently issued the FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validation certificate.
The official FIPS 140-2 certification for the Media Block is a key milestone for Qube Cinema’s Qube XP-D digital cinema server in its path to full DCI Certification and all new Qube XP-D servers now ship with the FIPS certified Media Block.
“We are extremely happy to have received the FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certification and will work diligently to achieve full DCI Certification,” said Rajesh Ramachandran, President and CTO of Qube Cinema, Inc. “This demonstrates our commitment to the highest level of security in digital cinema while continuing to deliver the innovative features that have become synonymous with our products.”
