Target Audience

All Government of Canada (GC) departments, technical authorities, Communications Security (COMSEC) custodians, designated COMSEC authorities and contractors who maintain, handle, distribute or use TACLANE products.


Prior to attending, participants must have a basic understanding of key material (symmetric and asymmetric) and networking (IP Network v.4, subnetting, and network topology). To satisfy this standard, participants are required to take Course 780 - Introduction to In-line Network Encryptors. For particular attention to the subject of key, we would recommend Course 235 - COMSEC in the GC. Course 275 - Simple Key Loader (SKL) may also be considered a recommendation, since the SKL device will be used in this course.
