Compact Cyber Security Application Platform

The Bivio 6110 is a compact, high-performance packet processing system that is an ideal host platform for a wide range of Network Security, Cyber Intelligence, Active Cyber Defense and other Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) applications. The Bivio 6110 is purpose-built to offer the highest possible network throughput in minimal rack space for Linux applications with little or no porting effort.

The platform utilizes a field-proven architecture that combines multicore Intel® processors with the robustness and security features of a Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® environment to deliver network traffic processing for cyber application solutions at over 10 Gbps full duplex line rates.

Common Criteria Certification

The Bivio 6110-NC and 6120-NC Compact Cyber Security Application Platforms have received Common Criteria Certification. The platforms were rigorously tested and validated by an approved independent laboratory for compliance to the collaborative Protection Profile for Network Devices (cPP-ND) Version 1.0 as overseen by the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP).

In addition to completing the NIAP Common Criteria certification, the Bivio 6110-NC and 6120-NC platforms have been added to the Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) Components List maintained by the National Security Agency (NSA). Products from the CSfC Components List are eligible for use in NSA approved Capability Packages for protecting classified data for a variety of different capabilities.

Rack-Efficient Cyber Application Processing

The extraordinary cyber security application processing is achieved through BiviOS™, a patented packet acceleration and application environment that is fully integrated with the standard Linux libraries. Using this implementation, the application does not need to be modified with any system details – it only needs to invoke the standard Linux network traffic and packet handling mechanisms. This compatibility delivers significant performance improvements over server-class appliances for open source Linux applications such as SNORT®, Suricata, Bro, Argus, YAF, nProbe, TCPdump, as well as other commercial and proprietary software.

Service & Application Consolidation

The Bivio 6110 platform also features exclusive multi-application support for both inline and passive modes of operation. Rather than relying on virtualization or sequential chaining, the Bivio 6110 uses an efficient and unique host infrastructure to enable running multiple cyber applications in parallel, with all applications simultaneously accessing the same network traffic. This capability allows cyber teams to easily consolidate applications and tools on a single platform to improve network security posture, eliminating the cost and complexity of managing multiple disparate systems.

Transparent Network Interfaces

The Bivio 6110 provides twenty-four (24) 1/10 Gb Ethernet ports and four (4) 40 Gb Ethernet ports that can be provisioned as copper and/or fiber for network traffic processing. All ports operate in transparent mode so that the platform is completely invisible when deployed as an inline or passive network sensor.

The platform also includes an independent management processor with out-of-band connectivity that provides true physical separation of the platform management from payload traffic processing.

White Paper: Open Source Software for Cyber Operations

For the last decade, the use of open source software (OSS) in corporate and government environments has steadily increased, a fact not only due to the significant number of available applications but also to the widespread acknowledgement of the technological and business advantages that are realized with OSS deployments.
