Businesses NCS - SIS PCM ImageAdvanced Cryptographic Technology

The PCM is a programmable cryptographic module ideal for embedded applications that require minimal size, weight and power, but still meets the highest level of information security — NSA Type 1 Certification.  The PCM was designed  to be crypto-modern; compatible with legacy algorithms yet programmable for future applications.  The design features the NSA Certified SafeXcel-185A (formerly called the MYK-185A) processor, which incorporates fully redundant ARM processors with real-time alarm and integrity checking. The PCM offers a variety of hardware-assisted cryptographic algorithms for both Suite A and Suite B supporting U.S. Government, NATO and coalition operation.
