Mini-CATAPAN PRIME Certified

L-3 TRL is delighted to announce that the award winning Mini-CATAPAN has been certified as PRIME compliant by CESG.

Mini-CATAPAN Suite A is the first IP crypto to achieve successful conformance testing using the new PRIME standard and has also successfully completed its High Grade evaluation through the CESG Assisted Products Service (CAPS). It is now available for procurement.

The PRIME Framework was first published by CESG in July 2010 to standardise networking encryption products used by Government to protect its communications. Standardisation ensures that multiple different devices will interoperate, which allows Government departments to create complex networks using devices from multiple suppliers.

In 2015 the Public Services Network which securely connects together the whole of the UK public sector is intended to move from the current interim IPsec to PRIME to use the latest cryptographic technology.
