In February 2016, AMERICAN SYSTEMS was granted status as a National Security Agency (NSA) Trusted Integrator for Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) Programs. NSA/CSS's Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) Program has been established to enable commercial products to be used in layered solutions protecting classified NSS data. U.S. Government customers increasingly require immediate use of the market's most modern commercial hardware and software technologies within National Security Systems (NSS) in order to achieve mission objectives. Consequently, the National Security Agency/Central Security Service's (NSA/CSS) Information Assurance Directorate (IAD) has developed new ways to leverage emerging technologies to deliver more timely IA solutions for rapidly evolving customer requirements. This provides the ability to securely communicate based on commercial standards in a solution that can be fielded in months, not years.
NSA/CSS has developed sets of Capability Packages in order to provide their customers with ready access to the information needed to satisfy their operational requirements. Capability Packages contain product-neutral information that allow customers/integrators to successfully implement their own solutions. Current Capability Packages include the Mobile Access Capability Package, Campus WLAN Capability Package, Virtual Private Network (VPN) Capability Package, and Data at Rest Capability Package. Using the information in the Capability Package, AMERICAN SYSTEMS can make product selections while following the NSA guidelines/restrictions to create an architecture with specific commercial products configured in a particular manner to support customer security requirements.
