Singapore, 29 May 2001. - Biodata Information Technology, global leader in network and communication security, today announced it has been awarded the German IT Security Certificate for its ISDN Biodata Babylon encryption technology. The encryption solution for ISDN lines is now certified under ITSEC and Common Criteria by the Federal Office for Security in Information Technology and included in a list of certified products.

Said Mr K K Chan, Country Manager of Biodata Singapore, "The certification, which is widely accepted internationally, attests that all security functions and the power of the applied mechanisms of Biodata Babylon are effective 'weapons' against external 'attacks'. It strengthens the position of Biodata Babylon as the world-leading high-security range of devices for the encryption of communication lines."

Germany's Federal Office of Security in Information Technology (BSI) is in charge of granting certificates for IT products. The manufacturer induces a certification process for his product. After the evaluation and certification processes are successfully completed, the appliance is included in a regularly published list of certified products. Verified appliances are based on the officially approved criteria ITSEC and Common Criteria (CC) that are accepted by numerous countries worldwide including Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, the UK and US. The ITSEC and CC agreements mark a significant step forward for Government and industry in the area of IT product and protection profile security evaluations. It provides grounds for confidence in the reliability of the judgments on which the original certificate was based.

The technical verification of Biodata Babylon, an encryption device for tap-proof communication, is conducted based on the generally approved high and consistent security criteria. Eliminating duplicate evaluations of IT products and protection profiles, the testing is done by a national accredited laboratory, in this case the Competence Center Informatik GmbH, which performed the certification process for Biodata Babylon.

The verified Biodata ISDN encryption device encodes both B-channels of an ISDN BRI line independently at a transmission rate of 64 Kbps. Moreover, the product uses 128 bit TripleDES encryption for cryptographic processing of sensitive data. The security solution can be easily installed between a basic ISDN extension (NTBA) or PBX and any ISDN-based phone, fax, PC, router, etc. Communication between two synchronized encryption devices is secured by means of a call numbers list with individually determined keys for receiver and sender or a default key.

After the rigorous evaluation process, the encryption solution Biodata Babylon is granted the German IT Security Certificate. For more information on Biodata Babylon, go to http://www.biodata.com/us/products/babylon/biodata_babylon.cphtml
