secunet provides high security for Voice over IP - Confidential Internet telephony via SINA

    Essen/Germany (ots) - secunet Security Networks AG presents the SINA Secure Inter-Network Architecture in a Voice over IP application at the CeBIT. This application allows top secret calls to be processed on a highly confidential level. Furthermore, the SINA Virtual Workstation demonstrates the high-security mobile use of communication systems. secunet, the leading European provider of high-security IT solutions and services presents its latest applications to customers and journalists at the CeBIT in Hall 7, Stall D38.

    SINA voice over IP secures confidentiality Voice over IP (VoIP) faces similar threats as the transfer of written messages or data transfer. Confidentiality is particularly jeopardised wherever open networks such as the Internet are included in the communication path. Hence, secunet has transferred its expertise in the cryptographic securing of IP communications to the VoIP field.

    The Secure Inter-Network Architecture SINA, a high-grade cryptographically secured virtual private network, allows users to make IP calls on the highest confidentiality level. This level of security is achieved in various communication applications: between two IP telephones (via inserted SINA boxes), between IP telephones and SINA Virtual Workstations (VW) and between two SINA VWs. At the CeBIT, secunet staff will be demonstrating high-security VoIP telephony using the SINA VW. SINA has been developed by secunet in cooperation with the German Federal Office for Information Security (Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik, BSI).

    SINA Virtual Workstation - high-level mobile and local security To an increasing degree staff employed by public authorities or companies work independently of their headquarters and dial into their internal networks from various locations. The SINA Virtual Workstation (VW) version 2.0, which was introduced in autumn 2005 and is now commercially available (starting with the opening of the CeBIT 2006), was developed in order to secure these mobile workplaces. secunet's SINA VW is a solution that serves both the needs of public authorities and the specific requirements of industry. Companies can now work at a security level that was previously reserved for public authorities and international organisations. SINA VW is based on state-of-the-art virtualisation technology that encapsulates potentially insecure operating systems in the trusted environment of the SINA-Linux operating system. This allows several work sessions with different security levels to take place at the same time. In addition, locally stored data can be encrypted according to the applicable security specifications and stored in a high-security cryptographic file system. The SINA VW forms the centrepiece of secunet's CeBIT exhibition.

    SINA prototype for PDA

    secunet-studies outline the future of the SINA high-security solution: inter alia, the company is presenting a prototype that transfers all SINA functions to a PDA. This facilitates secure and trusted use of increasingly small mobile appliances. Managers, who frequently have to take decisions based on confidential information while they are travelling, will benefit particularly from this scenario. In line with the trend towards miniaturisation, secunet currently develops a SINA application that can be used as an embedded system.

    secunet Security Networks AG presents its exhibition in Hall 7, Stall D38. Our staff looks forward to providing you with detailed information regarding the abovementioned products and services. Representatives of the press can also request background talks and interviews with secunet staff. Contact: Dr. Kay Rathke, Tel. 0201-5454-127, e-mail Further information at     About SINA

    As the only Internet-Protocol(IP)-based solution to date, the SINA Secure Inter-Network Application was approved by the German Federal Office for Information Security (Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik, BSI) to transmit confidential information up to the highest secrecy classification - STRENG GEHEIM (top secret). In addition, SINA was approved to transmit NATO information up to SECRET level in Germany. Numerous national and international customers use SINA components. For example, SINA secures all communication in the Information Network of the German Federal Administration (Informationsverbund der Bundesverwaltung, IVBV), and the German Federal Foreign Office has chosen SINA to link up all German embassies and representations worldwide.
