NetOctave, a provider of network security processors, has met US and Canadian requirements for cryptographic hardware and software modules, the company says.

NetOctave, which recently became a subsidiary of CyberGuard Corporation, says its processors and boards meet requirements set by the Federal Information processing Standard. The standards had to be met before the NetOctave products could be certified by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology and the Communications Security Establishment of the Government of Canada.
