Juniper US Department of Defense Security Certifications Continue to Grow
Nov 12, 2013
I have blogged in the past that the US Department of Defense (DoD) has a certification program called the Unified Capabilities Approved Product List (UC APL). Devices used in DoD networks must be selected from this list.
I’m very pleased to report that the Juniper Networks SSG, ISG, and NS5200/5400 Firewalls, with ScreenOS 6.3, have recently been approved in the Firewall and the VPN category of the UC APL. Previously these devices were approved with ScreenOS 6.2 software.
This certification is an indication of Juniper Networks’ strong support for the UC APL process and commitment to our ScreenOS firewall customers. Some of the new functionality in ScreenOS 6.3 includes support for additional key exchange algorithms including Diffie-Hellman Group 14 and elliptical curve Diffie-Helman Groups 19 and 20, IKEv2 support, and Enhancements to IPv6 functionality including OSPFv3 support.
