Tempest Verified SFPs

Introducing a better way to validate Small Form-Factor Pluggables (SFP) at Scale

Tempest Verified SFPs

•  VST is an independent 3rd party that provides the industry standard for functional verification and identification of counterfeit network hardware


• Electronic verification includes 12-14 industry standard and VST proprietary tests


• Visual confirmation includes product samples that have been approved by the manufacturer


Securing Networks with Verified Infrastructure​

Introducing a better way to validate Small Form-Factor Pluggables (SFP) at Scale

Trust Begins in Hardware:Deliver security effectiveness against counterfeit hardware

Verifying Trust:Accurately detect and identify counterfeit and modifications

Continuous Validation: Eliminate the risk by verifying hardware before deployment

Summary of Testing and Verification


• VST counterfeit filter utilizes multiple industry standards, VST proprietary and manufacturer specific tests to analyze and identify counterfeit network hardware

• Electronic verification and reporting includes 16 industry standard tests

• VST developed test procedure standards using proprietary test procedures they developed with the largest SFP manufacturers

• Thousands of devices have been tested and analyzed by VST confirming its accuracy


• Confirms that the product you purchased is the product you receive​

​• Provides protection from fraud​​

• Verification is the most effective method of identifying non-authentic hardware prior to installation into your network​

• Ensures quality of network performance and security with validation​
