Discussion

NSA Type 1 certification provides the level of assurance required for transmission of classified data. Systems without this certification are more likely to be compromised by a determined and resourceful adversary.

Fix Text

Immediately remove the uncertified device from the network. Install and operate a Type 1 product if wireless functionality is still required.

Check Content

Visually verify the site is using a Harris Corporation SecNet 11 or SecNet 54 or L3 KOV-26 Talon (version 1.1.04 or later) for the classified WLAN.
