Secure wireless communications for mobile devices

‘s Secure Command Post () is a small modular communications package that enables SIPR [secret internet protocol router] wireless and mobility access for smartphones, tablets, and laptops for classified networks in deployed, expeditionary, and tactical environments. The architecture – which follows the NSA Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) Campus WLAN Capability Package v2.0 – enables end-user devices to use built-in commercial Wi-Fi on mobile devices to provide one layer of the required two-layer NSA encryption requirements. Combined with a single VPN client, end-user devices are able to transmit classified information over Wi-Fi.

The Secure Wireless Command Post (Wi-Fi) is based on the PacStar 400-Series small-form-factor platform. The PacStar 400-Series modular platform is designed to maximize capabilities with the smallest size, weight, and power (SWaP) footprint possible and is customizable and configurable to meet other NSA CSfC capability packages including MA CP (with or other radio types) and MSC CP. It can also be configured to optimally serve a wide range of team sizes, and can also be customized with additional software and NFV solutions to ensure interoperability with existing customer infrastructure. PacStar Secure Wireless Command Post is managed by PacStar IQ-Core Crypto Manager, which the company says can simplify system CSfC setup, configuration, certificate authority requests, and VPN management.
