The U.S. Navy Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) recognizes the technical superiority and flexibility of FX's IPSec/VPN Developer Toolkit.

Holbaek, Denmark, October 20, 2005 — FX Communications (, a leader in advanced networking solutions and IT security, announced today the initial decision of the U.S. Navy SPAWAR Command center to focus their IPv4/IPv6 security application development on FX's IPSec/VPN toolkit and Packet Intercepting driver for Linux.

SPAWAR ([link]), The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center San Diego (SSC San Diego), is the U.S. Navy's research, development, test and evaluation, engineering and fleet support center for command, control and communication systems and ocean surveillance. SSC San Diego provides information resources to support the joint warfighter in mission execution and force protection.

"Our goal is to provide innovative technical solutions for applying next generation IP technology for the US Navy and Marine Corps. An important interest is developing network protocols used in conjunction with IPSec to make routing of unicast and multicast VPN-traffic seamless in very dynamic, mobile IPv4 and IPv6 networks. We have been looking for a product that allows rapid prototyping and development of protocols for these purposes.

The FX IPSec/VPN Toolkit with its quick, getting started template applications allows us to implement new ideas very quickly with much reduced programmer costs. The rich feature set allows fine control of the IPSec implementation and gives us the flexibility that we need to implement new ideas effectively.", said Roger Ogden, U.S. Navy Space and Warfare Systems Center., San Diego.

FX's IPSec/VPN enabling technology addresses the obvious demand for a multi-platform, standards-based IPv4/IPv6 component, which can be easily implemented into existing or new software for the purpose of providing 100% tamber-proof security over the public Internet. The IPSec/VPN toolit is incorporated transparently within the network layer and is suitable for a number of applications, such as VoIP, wireless security, firewall applications, and any other Internet communications where security is essential.


The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center San Diego (SSC San Diego) is one of five field activities of Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR). SPAWAR and its systems centers provide much of the tactical and non-tactical information management technology required by the Navy to complete its operational missions.

SSC San Diego was established June 1, 1940 as the Navy's first West Coast laboratory. It is headquartered in San Diego, California, with other sites at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii; Barrigada, Guam; Yokosuka, Japan; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Stuttgart, Germany; and Bahrain. The Center employs 3,400 civilian and military personnel, the majority of them engineers, scientists and technicians developing technology to meet the Navy's information requirements of the future and providing Fleet support to keep current information systems running.
