FIPS 140-2 Level 3 Certification Recommended for the Media Block of the Qube XP-D Digital Cinema Server

Qube Cinema, Inc. announced that the Media Block used in its Qube XP-D Digital Cinema Server has been recommended by InfoGard Laboratories for the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 Level 3 validation certificate. The FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certification for the Media Block is a key requirement of the DCI Specification. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) established the Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP) that validates cryptographic modules to Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS).

This recommendation by InfoGard, the most experienced FIPS 140-2 laboratory and consultant in the industry, is a key milestone for Qube Cinema’s Qube XP-D digital cinema server in its path to full DCI Certification. The official NIST validation process is expected to take about six months. Qube Cinema will progressively update all Qube XP-D digital cinema servers in the field to the new Media Block. Starting December 2008, all new Qube XP-D servers will ship with this new Media Block.
