Kontron and RECAB announce the qualification of a Secure Information Gateway using VPX technology and the Kontron VX3052 SBC. Modern digital security requirements require new approaches. The VX3052, designed on a multilayer computer architecture made of three slot card Single Board Computers interfaced one to each other by an independent data link, offers a good solution. The use of the 3U VPX architecture supporting 10Gb Ethernet brings to the gateway an outstanding performance, and supports the maintenance capability required by RECAB for the integrated Secure Information Gateway.
RECAB has been in charge of the 3U VPX Secure Information Gateway system architecture, and overall system design, including the 3U VPX backplane and of the integration of the SBCs and removable drives.
The VX3052 is a 2-core/4-thread Intel D-1508 SBC with on-board soldered DDR4 SDRAM which features two 10G Ethernet Base -KR as well as two 1G Ethernet Base T interfaces. Kontron answers digital security requirements at board level with hardware-enforced root of trust with a dual secure elements, and software-only techniques such as Secure Boot.
