Dolby Digital Cinema Recommended for FIPS Level 3 Certification by InfoGard

Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: DLB) today announced that its Dolby® Digital Cinema server has been recommended for a Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 Level 3 validation certificate. InfoGard Laboratories, an accredited Cryptographic Module Testing Laboratory under Lab Code 100432-0 of the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program, submitted the recommendation for the Dolby Digital Cinema server to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validation, as outlined by the Digital Cinema Initiative (DCI) specifications.

Through this achievement, Dolby Digital Cinema has moved further toward comprehensive DCI compatibility.

“We have worked very hard to achieve this milestone for DCI compatibility,” said Tim Partridge, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Professional Division, Dolby Laboratories. “Dolby Digital Cinema systems are designed to provide the market with reliable security solutions. We are thrilled to be the first company to announce that our digital cinema server is in line for FIPS Level 3 certification. We know it is important for all vendors to reach this level of content protection to promote the transition to digital cinema worldwide.”

Achieving FIPS Level 3 compliance would mean that the Dolby Digital Cinema server meets the highest level of protection required by DCI to prevent thieves and hackers from accessing the “master-quality” motion picture files used in digital cinema systems. FIPS are security standards developed by the NIST and cover detailed specifications for physical and mechanical design, electronic circuitry, software, interfaces, and algorithms.

“InfoGard has completed a very comprehensive and rigorous 140-2 validation test of the Dolby Digital Cinema server,” said Tom Caddy, General Manager, Laboratory Director, InfoGard Laboratories. “We have submitted our validation test report with confidence that the Dolby Digital Cinema server will receive a FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validation certificate.”

The official NIST validation process is expected to take six months.
