Sonus’ SBC SWe Completes FIPS 140-2 Validation

Corsec would like to congratulate our partner, Sonus Networks, on taking their SBC Software Edition Session Border Controller (SBC SWe) through the Federal Information Processing Standard 140-2 (FIPS 140-2) validation process.

To achieve this milestone, Sonus partnered with Corsec to complete the FIPS 140-2 Level 1 validation process. For more information on the validation and to find additional details on the SBC SWe security policy, visit NIST’s validated modules site.

Sonus is a global leader in secure and intelligent cloud communications. Their completion of the FIPS 140-2 validation process demonstrates their commitment to strong levels of security, including a government backed product offering and a dedication to providing customers and end users with the most scrutinized and highly tested security solutions.

About FIPS 140-2

FIPS 140-2 is a joint effort by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in the United States, and the Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC), under the Canadian government. The Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP), headed by NIST, provides module and algorithm testing for FIPS 140-2, which applies to Federal agencies using validated cryptographic modules to protect sensitive government data in computer and telecommunication systems. FIPS 140-2 provides stringent third-party assurance of security claims on any product containing cryptography that may be purchased by a government agency.

FIPS, which is mandated by law in the U.S. and very strictly enforced in Canada, is also currently being reviewed by ISO to become an international standard. FIPS 140-2 is gaining worldwide recognition as an important benchmark for third party validations of encryption products of all kinds. A FIPS 140-2 validation of a product provides end users with a high degree of product security, assurance, and dependability.

About the Sonus Networks Session Border Controller

The Sonus SBC Software Edition Session Border Controller (SBC SWe) is a software-based, cloud-optimized SBC architected to enable and secure real-time communications in the cloud. Starting at 25 sessions, and scaling to tens of thousands per instance, the unique architecture of the SBC SWe allows customers to define where on the performance curve their network needs to reside. The SBC SWe uses a “microservices” design to separate signaling, media, and transcoding to optimize virtual network resources. It also supports on-demand auto-scaling, with a feedback loop using Key Performance Indicator
