Cassidian Cyber Security Unit Addressing New Internet Threats

No doubt, MILIPOL is World’s leading security exhibition. Between October 18 and 21, the 17th exhibition welcomed in Paris some 888 exhibitors, with 34% from France and 66% from 47 other countries. Both official delegations from around the World and the growing number of visitors demonstrated the position this exhibition has attained in the worldwide security market. Defense, safety and security departments of States and other public authorities as well as small or major companies discovered their products and services marked by technical innovation and adapted to their specific needs. From antiterrorism to road safety, forensic science services to civil defense, once again, the huge diversity of equipment on display was a timely reflection of the variety of professions in today's security industry. As president of MILIPOL, prefect Alain Rondepierre mentioned, « each edition benefits both companies and government departments responsible for the security of property and individuals... For the second time, this year, an area was set aside for major risks: technological or industrial, natural or terrorist, in response to the needs brought about by the disasters many countries now endure. The “First time exhibitor village” enabled those companies exhibiting for the first time to have a more concrete vision of the exhibition.» Among the major companies, Cassidian presented on its stand an entire range of integrated defence and security solutions for internal State security. In an increasingly open and therefore more vulnerable global environment, while developing tomorrow’s solutions to secure and protect international territories and their citizens, Cassidian was offering its latest know-how and innovative solutions for integrated homeland security: intelligence and surveillance, command-and-control systems, secure communications, simulation and system integration, border security and cyber security. To illustrate its technological progress and display its solutions interactively, Cassidian presented both a 3D crisis management and emergency intervention, and advanced cyber security scenarios in its TouchLab. As a matter of fact, since 2009, Cassidian has been at the leading edge of IT developments and new solutions to counter threats from the Internet. As part of its major restructuring measures in August 2011, Cassidian set up a new unit devoted entirely to cyber security, "Cassidian Cyber Security".[1] With more than 300 IT security experts based primarily at Élancourt in France, Germany and the UK, Cassidian Cyber Security develops the dynamic solutions needed to counter today’s threats and anticipate tomorrow’s. Sebastien Héon, director of political Affairs for Cassidian Cyber Security department told Joël-François Dumont and Olivier Azpitarte about the latest innovative solutions presented by Cassidian at MILIPOL.

Cassidian Cyber Security Unit Addressing New Internet Threats

At MILIPOL, using a simulated scenario of a cyber attack on an oil rig, Cassidian presented its innovative cyber security solutions for protecting the site and warding off the threat. A new demonstration of the CYMERIUS® system for monitoring and controlling cyber attacks was also presented.

Highly adaptable to structures of any kind, CYMERIUS® is an innovative system for monitoring and controlling cyber attacks, collecting information at a central location and alerting each player involved so that they can respond to any invasion at extremely short notice. This decision-based approach to security and its categorisation of incidents provides unique proactive support for decision-makers.

Based on sophisticated encryption technology, ECTOCRYP® IP is the only solution to allow real-time transmission of large data quantities in a totally secure environment to meet the needs of civil, military and government forces.

It is already in service with the law and order forces in the UK, and in September Cassidian signed a contract with EMIRAJE Systems L.L.C. for the provision of ECTOCRYP® IP encryption devices to the Middle East. The ECTOCRYP® IP solution was chosen from among a large number of products primarily because it enables remote updating of devices via its software interfaces, which are controlled by cryptography experts in the Armed Forces of the United Arab Emirates.

The SECCOM® Secure Exchange Gateway, a flexible solution for the exchange of secure data between different information spaces with specific security requirements, was specially developed by Cassidian for high-security domains. With the help of filters, this solution verifies and validates the transfer of information from one security domain to another. It thus implements and controls a predefined security policy for the exchange of data between separate domains.

In November 2010, SECCOM® Secure Exchange Gateway was the first product in the world to gain distinction as a “NCOIC (Network Centric Operations Industry Consortium) certified Building Block”, the objective of which is to guarantee the integrity of data transfer between networks with different security levels.
