RSA BSAFE Crypto Next Generation
RSA BSAFE Crypto Next Generation is a provider implementation for the Microsoft cryptography next-generation (CNG) application programming interface (API). BSAFE Crypto Next Generation includes two user-mode CNG providers that are drop-in replacements: Microsoft primitive provider and Microsoft Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol provider.
Cryptographic functions supplied by the BSAFE CNG providers register with the highest priority at the time of installation, making them the default implementation. By overriding standard Microsoft providers, the BSAFE CNG implementation will provide organizations with stronger security and improved performance.
BSAFE Crypto Next Generation features include:
- FIPS validation – Gain support for FIPS 140 security level 1.
- NSA Suite B cryptography compliance – Use National Security Agency (NSA) Suite B cryptographic algorithms.
- Broad range of algorithms – Leverage comprehensive cryptographic security.
- Transport layer security – Gain support for transport layer security (TLS) version 1.2 and associated standards.
