Trusted Computer Solutions Congratulates Air Force Key Management Program Office Air Force Receives "Office of the Secretary of Defense Certificate of Excellence" for Development of a Net-Centric, Wireless Key Distribution System


HERNDON, Va., May 10, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Trusted Computer Solutions (TCS), a leading developer of cross domain, operating system and network security solutions, congratulates the U.S. Air Force's Key Management Program Office for receiving the prestigious Certificate of Excellence award from the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD). The Air Force Key Management Program Office is responsible for the enablement of secure, mission-driven access to information and services. Utilizing crypto key management expertise, and incorporating TCS technology, the Key Management Program Office developed a net-centric, key distribution system that saves time and improves operational readiness.

TCS' SecureOffice(R) Trusted Gateway System(TM) (TGS) is included as part of the system to securely transfer the key data via the network. The uni-directional TGS (for Trusted Solaris(TM)) is listed on the Unified Cross-Domain Management Office (UCDMO) Baseline Re-Use list and is widely implemented throughout the Department of Defense (DoD). This older platform is quickly being replaced with the bi-directional TGS (for Red Hat(R) Enterprise Linux(R)), which, through a different U.S. Government customer, received a Top Secret/SCI and Below Interoperability Interim Authority to Test (TSABI IATT) for a Protection Level 4 system in February 2010.

"We congratulate the Air Force Key Management Program Office for the work they have done to build this innovative system and for the recognition that OSD has bestowed on them," stated Ed Hammersla, Chief Operating Officer, Trusted Computer Solutions. "TCS continues to collaborate with the government and the military to develop innovation use-case scenarios, such as this one, for secure access and transfer of classified information. It is very satisfying to know that a TCS product is playing a role in improving processes for these mission critical operations." About Trusted Computer Solutions, Inc.
