Gävle Energi’s city network GavleNet is now certificated with “Secure Enduser Connections” (SEC). The certificate ensures that GavleNet is a safe, secure and qualitatively broadband network.
The Local Fibre Alliance, SSNf, is the authors if the certificate “Secure Enduser Connections”. The projects initiator Interlan, who nominee the certifications, have done the tests on Gävle Energi’s city network.
– GavleNet have passed the tests which indicates that the network traffic is delivered on a safe, secure and qualitatively way, states Interlans projectleader Torbjörn Eklöv.
The certificate is valid in three years and certifies that the network traffic can’t be manipulated. Torbjörn explains that for example, an “Man-in-the-middle-attack” (MITM) is impossible to carry out on a network which is certificated with SEC.
– Even if the client has a firewall and anti-virus, there are still threats if the broadband network isn’t SEC certificated, Torbjörn Eklöv says.
GavleNet is the 7th broadband network which passed the requirements that SEC certification demands.
– We want to assure out clients that GavleNet is a qualitatively network with high security. We ISO certificates our activities, and of course we tests our network with the same high objectives, seller at Gavlenet Roger Belin explains.
The Local Fibre Alliance, Svenska Stadsnätsföreningen SSNf, is responsible for the certification. An independent organization for city network owners, operators, service deliverers and other in the broadband section.
