The Defense Information Systems Agency has wrapped up modernization work on the Secret Internet Protocol Router Network as part of the SIPRNet Access Migration Project designed to facilitate network connectivity for mission partners
DISA said Thursday it transitioned SIPRNet into a virtual network, reduced the network’s size and raised the bandwidth capacity from 1G to 10G under the modernization project.
“This transition makes mission partners ready for [Secret-Joint Regional Security Stacks] transport,” said Mark Williams, classified internet protocol portfolio manager at DISA.
“The transport utilizes Advanced Crypto Compliant encryptors, so when mission partners are ready for S-JRSS, they will only need to make router changes,” he added.
The agency has started to offer enterprise encryption devices – High Assurance Internet Protocol Encryptor – to mission partners in an effort to reduce the number of DISA routers and encryptors used to establish virtual connection to the network.
