Rack-Efficient Cyber Security Applications & Network Sensor
The Bivio 6310 Series is a family of compact, high-performance packet processing systems that are ideal host platforms for a wide range of Network Security, Cyber Intelligence, Active Cyber Defense and other Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) applications. The platforms are optimized for packet processing through a field-proven architecture that features multicore Intel® processors and a robust Linux application environment.
The Bivio 6310 Series platforms are designed for the most demanding cyber mission environments via two chassis configurations:
- B6310 system platform for enterprise and data center environments
- B6310R system platform for portable cases and other harsh conditions
Both platforms may be ordered as validated Common Criteria (NIAP) and NSA Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) configurations.
Common Criteria Certification
The Bivio 6310-NC and 6310R-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 6310-NC and 6310R-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.
Robust Linux Environment
Bivio 6310 Series platforms include a robust and performance-optimized Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® distribution that provides a secure and reliable host environment for cyber security and network packet processing applications. The system combines the operating system with Bivio’s exclusive packet acceleration and application management software to nearly eliminate internal packet handling latency and achieve a significant performance advantage over alternative solutions.
Service & Application Consolidation
The Bivio 6310 platform also features exclusive multi-application support. Rather than relying on virtualization or sequential chaining, the Bivio 6310 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.
The Bivio 6310 Series supports both inline and passive modes of operation, and when running multiple applications, some can be inline and some can be passive on the same platform.
Enhancing the Cyber Defense Process
The Bivio 6310 platform hosts an advanced set of features for enhancing the Cyber Defense process and operating network sensors. Achieving speed-to-decision in mitigating cyber threats requires the ability to integrate threat intelligence indicators of compromise, automate the workflow for decision making and share threat information with third-party systems.
The platform supports the STIX™, TAXII™ and CybOX™ specifications that aid in integrating threat intelligence indicators into network-based cyber sensors. The platform also incorporates a visual workflow engine that aids the automation process for decision making with cyber sensor data.
