Software components for data protection, secure storage and transfer

Software Developers Can Rely on FIPS Compatibility, Support of IPv6 and GOST Cryptography and Many More in SecureBlackbox Version 7

London, UK – March 20, 2008 – EldoS Corporation announces today the new possibilities for in-house and vendor software developers. Version 7.0 of SecureBlackbox now offers Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) compatibility, new selection of cryptoalgorithms and improved PKCS#11 compliance. Addition of these modern technologies will bring software development companies to technology leadership positions.

EldoS Corporation is the leader on the market of data encryption components. EldoS SecureBlackbox offers most comprehensive suite of cryptoalgorithms including the most recent developments in the field.

Restrictions on code compliance imposed on government and military contractors preclude them from use of FIPS non-compliant software. In the new version of SecureBlackbox all these restriction are lifted. Now developers have full freedom to use components of SecureBlackbox for secure data transfer, encrytpion and digital signatures using PKI, PDF, XML, SSH and SFTP functionalities.

FIPS mode is based on delegating the execution of cryptooperations to system cryptoprovider, certified by FIPS 140-2. This allows use of SecureBlackbox together with certified implementations of algorithms. Now FIPS compliance of SecureBlackbox gives access to this most comprehensive suite of secure data transfer and storage algorithms to even more interested companies.

Cryptographic tokens usage for secure identity authentication shows steadily growth last years. In combination with username and password the tokens dramatically improve users identity validation. In addition to standard functionality, new version of SecureBlackbox gives an ability to store key infrastructure inside the token, without use of certificates. Moreover, developers can allow monitoring by notification of various critical token operations. Improved compatibility with tokens from other manufacturers is yet another brilliant benefit.

GOST 28147-89 encryption algorithm is now supported in new SecureBlackbox. According to security expert Bruce Schneier, "GOST has a 256-bit key. If you add in the secret S-box permutations, GOST has a total of about 610 bits of secret information". This algorithm is more effectively realized and is faster than analogous algorithms. An addition of this encryption tool is a unique feature offered for sale as software component exclusively by EldoS.

With the exponential growth of Internet, restriction of addressing capabilities of IPv4 become more and more evident and will lead to address exhaustion. Current new Internet Protocol, Version 6 (IPv6) is steadily gaining popularity and, without any doubt, will become the main protocol in the recent feature. In the current release of SecureBlackbox EldoS adds support of IPv6 to components with embedded sockets, such as SSL, SSH, SFTP, SMTP and HTTPS.

“Among other useful features frequently requested by our clients”, – comments Eugene Mayevski, CTO of EldoS Corporation, – “we now provide support of AES256 in PDFBlackbox, improved interaction with some SFTP and FTPS servers, added support of signed TSP-queries and improved interaction with third-party CadES realizations. All this makes feature-rich SecureBlackbox a must have component for developers of secure data transfer and storage software.”

Overall, the newly released Version 7.0 of SecureBlackbox for Developers by EldoS Corporation makes data encryption and decryption, secure storage and transfer, authentication and integrity checks even more reliable and modern. Use of this software component will help bring customer software products in line with modern market demands for unbreakable security and absolute reliability.

The release of SecureBlackbox 7.0 is freely available for evaluation. The software can be downloaded from the product download page. Please look for additional information at EldoS Corporation web site.
