Lexmark has extended its technology leadership
with the introduction of the Lexmark
PrintCryptionTM Card, designed to protect
sensitive information as it is printed. The new
Lexmark PrintCryptionTM Card delivers encryption
and decryption capabilities for secure printing to
Lexmark network printers. This new level of
printing security is ideal for many industries,
including those that are commonly handling
sensitive or personal information, such as
financial institutions, government agencies and
healthcare organisations.
Sun Solaris (7, 8, 9), Linux (Red Hat 7, 8, Caldera
3.1, SuSE 8), Microsoft Windows (98, Me, NT 4.0,
2000 and XP), *Apple Mac OS X, HP-UX 10, 11,
and *IBM AIX 4.3, 5.0.
A command line utility (DCP) is used to encrypt
print jobs for Linux, Sun Solaris, HP-UX and IBM AIX.
Product overview
The PrintCryptionTM Card provides corporate
environments with strengthened printing
security. A May 2002 survey conducted by CIO
Magazine underscores the importance of IT
security. In fact, survey respondents recommend
a 77 percent increase in security spending in
2003 compared to current levels.
The new Lexmark PrintCryptionTM Card works
with software from Levi, Ray & Shoup, Inc.
(LRS), VPS/TCPIP 8.0 or later and VPS/Secure 8.0
or later, to provide encrypted, end-to-end print
job security between common mainframe and
Windows systems and wired or wireless
Lexmark network printers.
This solution generates random and unique
session keys for each print job. Similar offerings
on the market today use a persistent key for
each printer.This new Lexmark technology offers
a level of security that eliminates the worry of a
"key" being compromised and used to intercept
future confidential print jobs.
As an added layer of security, this new offering
also permits only the specified printer to decrypt
and print the data. If information is
inappropriately intercepted, it remains
encrypted. The Lexmark PrintCryptionTM Card
works when installed in the Lexmark T family, W
family or C91x color laser printers to receive the
encrypted data stream, decrypt it and produce
the confidential document.
Encryption software is included to secure and
support print data sent from supported systems
The Lexmark PrintCryptionTM Card provides
support for the Advanced Encryption Standard
(Rijndael algorithm). The printer must be
connected to the TCP/IP network using the
standard Ethernet connection in the network
printer models. Unique TCP/IP port numbers are
used for the encrypted print information. The
card decrypts and prints the information
appropriate for the port.
• Port 9150 - persistent key management and
control for RSA public and private key pairs
• Port 9151 - used for data encrypted with an AES
persistent key
• Port 9152 - used for data encrypted with an AES
session key
