With the PrintCryption module installed, the printer is capable of decrypting print jobs encrypted with the AES (FIPS 197) algorithm. The Lexmark PrintCryption card analyses the encrypted data stream, determines if the correct key was used to encrypt the data, decrypts the data and allows the confidential document to be printed. This level of printing security is ideal for industries that commonly handle sensitive or personal information, such as financial institutions, government agencies, and healthcare organizations.
The Lexmark PrintCryption Card provides support for the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES algorithm) which meets the FIPS-197 standard. Unique TCP/IP port numbers are used for the encrypted print information: Port 9150 – management; Port 9152 – used for data encrypted with an AES session key.
