TEMPEST is a U.S. National Security Agency specification and a NATO certification tasked with the primary goal of ensuring security-sensitive hardware is properly shielded against unlawful activities and those looking to obtain confidential information. TEMPEST “Level A” represents the strictest NATO standard and is often referred to as “FULL” in its protection against compromising emanations, eavesdropping, and other illegal spying activities in close physical proximity.
Hugh Tarver, Business Director for Galleon Embedded Computing, states “This is an exciting milestone for Galleon and the XSR product line. Further to the encryption capability built into the XSR2, TEMPEST Level A certification helps mitigate risk for our customers, enhances overall confidence, and ensures the highest level of security has been met by this standard.”
