DESCRIPTION/FUNCTION


The KIV-7 family of embeddable KG-84 communications security (COMSEC) modules are lightweight, compact, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) cryptographic devices that provide protection for digital and voice communications. The KIV-7 provides security protection through TOP SECRET, dependent on the classification of the fill key. There are currently three models in the KIV-7 family: the normal speed (KIV-7), the high-speed (KIV-7HS), and the high-speed revision A (KIV-7HSA). The KIV-7 cryptographic device was designed as a miniaturized KG-84A/C and intended to be completely interoperable with KG-84A/Cs, however, the KIV-7 and the KIV-7HS contain the Windster processor chip, which has some performance anomalies that prevent total KG-84A/C interoperability. The KIV-7HSA with the Presidio processor chip is being evaluated to ensure it resolves the Windster chip anomalies and is scheduled to be available in FY00. Only the high-speed version (KIV-7HS) is now being manufactured. The miniaturization of the KIV-7 family units makes them suitable for space and load constrained environments (e.g., aboard submarines or vehicle mount).

The KIV-7 has storage for up to 10 traffic encryption keys, which simplifies multinet communications. A removable cryptographic ignition key (CIK) prevents unauthorized access and protects all internally stored keys. The KIV-7 fill interface is compatible with both DS-101 (AN/CYZ-10 Data Transfer Device [DTD]) and DS-102 (KYK-13, KYX-15, KOI-18) common fill devices. When unkeyed or when the CIK is removed; and not collocated, the KIV-7 is handled as an UNCLASSIFIED controlled cryptographic item (CCI). When the KIV-7 is keyed, it is handled at the classification level of the highest level of stored key.

The KIV-7 Rack Assembly provides both electrical and mechanical interfaces to accommodate 2, 4, or 8 KIV-7 units. The 19-inch rack assembly is designed for installation into any standard 19-inch cabinet that meets the design requirements of RS-410. The Pulse Engineering KIV-7 Dual Slot Frame Model 3014-1 contains one auto ranging power supply (85-260 VAC) for standard line power operation. The Pulse Engineering KIV-7 Dual Slot Frame Model 3014-2 contains two power supplies (85-132 VAC, a redundant with automatic switch-over) for standard line power operation. The Pulse Engineering KIV-7 Four Slot Frame Model 3016-1 contains one auto ranging power supply (100-240 VAC) for standard line power operation. The Pulse Engineering KIV-7 Four Slot Frame Model 3016-2 contains two auto ranging power supplies (100-240 VAC, a redundant with automatic switch-over) for standard line power operation. The Pulse Engineering KIV-7 Eight Slot Frame Model 3018-1 contains one auto ranging power supply (100-240 VAC) for standard line power operation. The Pulse Engineering KIV-7 Eight Slot Frame Model 3018-2 contains two auto ranging power supplies (100-240 VAC, a redundant with automatic switch-over) for standard line power operation. The Rainbow Mykotronx KIV-7 Eight Slot Frame, P/N 4061242-0501, contains two auto ranging power supplies (115 VAC, a redundant with automatic switch-over) for standard line power operation.
