How is Encryption in Transit and Encryption at Rest implemented within UCS?

OMB Circular A-130 Appendix III requires Federal Agencies to encrypt data at rest and in transit. Has anyone met this mandate using UCS? If so, how was encryption in transit and encryption at rest implemented in UCS?

Regards,

Ed

Re: How is Encryption in Transit and Encryption at Rest implemented within UCS?

Hi, Ed,

Encryption at rest is done with self-encrypting drives (SEDs) on Cisco's C-Series (rack), S-Series (dense storage rack), and HyperFlex (hyperconverged rack) servers. SEDs are not supported on B-Series (blade) servers, so there's no encryption at rest support there.


UCS has no native encryption in transit capability.


Here's a link with government certification info for Cisco products: Global Government Certifications - Cisco. Notice that UCS is compliant with Common Criteria (https://www.niap-ccevs.org/Product/PCL.cfm?par303=Cisco%20Systems%2C%20Inc) among others.


HTH,

Phil
