Security Now
Security is top-of-mind everywhere, especially right here where Juniper experts share their thoughts on the latest security breakthroughs and product advancements


I am pleased to report that the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has issued a Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 Certification of the following Juniper Networks devices with Junos 14.1R4 software.


EX9204, EX9208, EX9216

M7i, M10i, M120, M320

MX240, MX480, MX960, MX2010, MX2020

PTX3000, PTX5000

T640, T1600, T4000


The FIPS certification is #2451.


This is a first time FIPS certification for the EX9200 and the PTX devices and a recertification for the M, MX, and T-series devices.  This is Juniper Network’s 56th FIPS certification and this is the most comprehensive single FIPS certification completed to date.


FIPS Certification continues to be challenging as NIST requirements evolve including the deprecation of cryptographic algorithms that were once approved and increased focus on important cryptography elements like maintaining sufficient entropy and using strong deterministic random bit generators (DRBG).

The Joint Information Environment requires new solutions.


EAL 4 Level Common Criteria Certifications without the appropriate protection profile are like Nigel Tufnel carrying on about his amplifiers in This is Spinal Tap- Much Ado About Nothing.


CTP Platforms now certified by the US Department of Defense for Everything over IP via Satellite


Recently the US Department of Defense added Juniper Networks MX240-960, MX5-80, and the MX80-48T to the Unified Capabilities Approved Product List (UC APL) as MPLS capable, Assured Services Local Area Network (ASLAN) devices.

So why is this notable? And, so why does the Department of Defense need MPLS anyhow?



In July, Juniper announced a brand new JUNOS Fast Track Certification Program, featuring a limited-time offer of 100% discounts on all JUNOS Enterprise Certifications. To say the program was a smash success would be a gross understatement. Read more...

Fast Track to Getting Certified for JUNOS Software

When I first started my career in networking - before Juniper had released its first router - I admired the certified experts in the field. It seemed that having an expert-level certification would virtually guarantee that those experts would never be lacking a job. A few years later, after much hard work, I was certified under the CCIE program. Read more...
