Welcome to the NIS Blog. Today’s entry contains FAQs Part 2:
Q. Does the Interceptor have an impact on the bandwidth of the network? A: Interceptor is a physical layer device, and does not touch, process or verify the network data or the National Security Information, therefore no bandwidth bottlenecks are created allowing full utilization of the network – up to 10Gbps and beyond.
Q. Is it necessary to perform an auto-configuration before Interceptor can start protecting a network? A: The Interceptor is set at the factory with a default profile that enables it to be placed into service and protect the network immediately. Once installed, performing an autoconfiguration while the unit continues to monitor optimizes the protection profile.
Q. Which organizations have approved Interceptor? A: As an alarmed carrier hardened Protected Distribution System (PDS) compliant with the requirements of NSTISSI 7003, the instruction that governs the transmission of unencrypted National Security Information, INTERCEPTOR™ is a fully approved PDS option. INTERCEPTOR also complies with requirements AFI 33-201 (Air Force), AR 25-2 (Army) and NAVSO P-5239-22 (Navy). It is also listed on the US Air Force CTTA Approved Product List for PDS Alarm Systems as well as the US Navy TEMPEST PDS Approved Product list. INTERCEPTOR has been reviewed by the DISA DSAWG and confirmed as a viable tool for SIPRNet protection subject to approval by local approval authorities.
