Fundamentals of Next Generation Encryption


Cisco Next-Generation Encryption (NGE) evolves traditional encryption technology to meet today's increasing security needs while improving scalability and efficiency. 

It is sort of a new framework that will provide the better security then existing Security infrastruture that is based on 1970 Technologies. 

Encryption  = AES GCM

Hashing = HMAC SHA 2

Keying = ECDH

Signature =ECDSA

NGE is also compatible with existing security architectures including:
  • Remote Access VPN
  • Site to Site VPN
  • Secure Unified Collaboration
It is also compatible with a number of government standards, including:
  • U.S. Suite B
  • U.S. Federal Information Processing Standards 140 Series (FIPS-140)
  • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
