secunet is Germany’s leading provider for superior IT security, and has been a security partner of the Federal Republic of Germany since 2004. At secunet, more than 550 specialists are focused on issues such as cryptography, biometrics, e-government, critical infrastructure and automotive security.
secunet’s main product portfolio SINA is a joint development with the German Federal Office for Information Security and consists of cryptographic solutions for national and international customers with high security requirements. SINA enables secure processing, storage, transfer and registration of classified information up to and including classifications GEHEIM (Germany), NATO SECRET and SECRET UE.
The diversity of secunet’s unique product portfolio – comprising stationary and mobile clients, IPsec gateways and data diodes, Ethernet encryptors and a registry-compliant solution (SINA Workflow) – supports the creation of security domains for an almost infinite range of applications.
Workstations today need to be flexible. There are high expectations in terms of convenience, security and efficiency. With SINA Workstation S, a mobile crypto client, customers can communicate with server areas via a high grade IPsec VPN – anytime, anywhere, while data at rest is highly secured by cryptographic means. A key component of the IT infrastructure in high security networks are SINA L3 Boxes S. They connect public authority or corporate networks via the Internet by a high secure IPsec VPN tunnel. The new component secunet edge supplements secunet’s industrial offering and is aimed at protecting machines at the edge of the network. Like a protective wrapping, secunet edge covers the machine and decouples its life cycle from the IT environment.
SecuStack, also a new product, addresses
a security-enhanced OpenStack IaaS platform. SecuStack provides an integrated cryptographic approach to protect user data, various key management schemes and thereby a strong tenant separation.
The SINA Workstation is a fat client with a cryptographic file system and IPSec-protected communication. Protected by a VPN tunnel, it communicates with server areas or terminal server areas. This enables stationary or mobile, online or offline use. SINA networks can be accessed via wired (Ethernet) or wireless media. Emission-protected hardware platforms are required for approval purposes. The SINA Workstation S was specially developed for users with medium protection requirements.
Industry 4.0 connects IT with OT, thereby bringing together two worlds that were previously completely separate. Machines demand comprehensive protection from external influences; yet, at the same time, they need to have a degree of openness to increase the connectivity. secunet edge fulfils exactly this seemingly paradoxical demand. Like a protective wrapping, secunet edge covers the machine and decouples the machine’s life cycle from the IT environment.
SecuStack is a security-hardened Cloud infrastructure solution based on OpenStack. It comes with various features securing the data provided by users to the Cloud. Furthermore, it offers holistic cryptographic tenant seperation. SecuStack is an extension of the vanilla OpenStack code base. It is built upon generic OpenStack code and incorporates security enhancements and acts as a drop-in replacement for standard OpenStack components.

The world’s largest IT security trade fair, the it-sa 2019 in Nuremberg, provided the perfect setting for a milestone in the history of secunet: 100,000 SINA Workstations S had been supplied. At the event, Axel Deininger, CEO of secunet, awarded a certificate to Arne Schönbohm, President of the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) and Dr. Günther Welsch, Head of Department of Crypto-technology and IT Management at BSI.
Authorities, enterprises and the armed forces have been deploying the SINA Workstation for years for the purpose of processing sensitive or classified data. The solution combines security and user friendliness. Users operate within their trusted work environment at any time (e.g. MS Windows). The SINA Workstation is available in a variety of product versions to meet different security requirements – up to GEHEIM/SECRET level – as well as in various standard form factors such as in a desktop or laptop.
