Compliance and Certifications
Working to provide assurance to our customers of the security of our products
CYPHYX is working to obtain multiple validations and certifications to ensure that our customers have confidence in the high level of security that our products bring to the market. We know that for many customers these validations and certifications are required in order to obtain and use a product and we are working to provide to our customer those assurances they need. We know our products are secure and will obtain validations, but having those validations makes it that much easier for customers to move forward quickly to using a better and more secure product from CYPHYX.
CYPHYX is currently working with a testing laboratory to acquire validation and hopes to have to complete by the first quarter of 2022.
PCI - DSS
CYPHYX is also working to validate PCI - DSS compliance in the first half of 2022 to provide the highest level of assurance in the security of our products.
Validation of HIPAA compliance will assure our customers in the healthcare market that we have provided them with the highest levels of security and maintain their compliance for the products they use and the data they must keep safe for their patients. CYPHYX also expects to obtain this validation in the first half of 2022.
CYPHYX is also working toward validation for Common Criteria in the later half of 2022.
For really secure communications, you then need to share a new key each time you want to communicate information that is supposed to be secret. The use of a new key each time is considered to be equivalent to using what cryptographers call a one-time pad. A one-time pad harkens back to the days when an actual encryption key was distributed on paper and a unique sheet of paper was used each time. Because each key is used only once, cracking such encryption is difficult.Wayne Rash, eWeek article, "Why Quantum-Resistant Encryption Needs Quantum Key Distribution for Real Security"
