Question:
I have been told that it is not possible to receive FSB notification for a product which implements SRTP, a protocol commonly used in VoIP telephones and other media conferencing implementations like WebRTC (found in most modern web browsers). Is this accurate? Are the VoIP suppliers of the world really disabling SRTP in the products they ship to Russia?
Jason 6/20/2018 7:32:59 PM
Answer:
Hello Jason,
Yes, it’s correct. SRTP uses AES-256 algorithm to encrypt user data. It exceeds the scope of FSS (FSB) notification. The manufacturer should block SRTP in case he wants to receive the FSS notification.
Alternatively such equipment may be imported and used with FSS license. Obtaining of FSS license is much more complicated procedure for strong end-to-end encryption.
The licensed importer should report to FSS about every sale of equipment, the buyer also should have the FSS license.
Yes, many VoIP suppliers disable SRTP in firmware for EAC market. For example Cisco uses NO PAYLOAD ENCRYPTION (NPE) firmwares. But the end user can upgrade or change the firmware. It’s not illicit. So it’s the most convenient way.

Question:
How do I obtain an FSB Certificate for an Uplogix Model 5000 in order to import goods into Russia ? Please advise regards, Phil
Phil Allen 2/14/2018 4:51:56 PM
Answer:
Hello Phil,
FSB notification is used mostly for end user equipment with simple encryption, not for enterprise equipment. According to the description Uplogix 5000 cryptography exceeds the requirements of the FSB notification, so notification can’t be registered in a simple way. But you have 3 options to do:
  • Block some additional encryption functions (including SSD AES encryption, VPN and so on) and register FSB notification for another model name (for example Uplogix 5000RU). Validity period unlimited, all documents should be signed by the manufacturer or by the local representative with apostilled PoA.
  • Get FSB licenses to buy/sell advanced cryptography equipment for all Uplogix 5000 users in the Russia. It’s a very complicated way.
  • Get FSB permissions to import for own use for all Uplogix 5000 users (with no right to deliver this equipment and/or services to 3rd parties). Validity period 1 year, all documents should be signed by the importer(s)-owner(s).
We can help you with 1 and 3.

Answer:
Hi Bob,
Surely we can register the FSB notification.
Maximum validity unlimited, the applicant must be the manufacturer or the local authorized representative in Russia. Lead time 10 working days, cost USD ***. Registration procedure requires to sign in a set of application documents in Russian and provide:
  • A technical characteristics – 2 copies signed by the manufacturer, with Apostille or consular legalization each.
or

  • A legalized power of attorney, with Apostille or consular legalization.
All documents in Russian will be prepared by our experts. Also you will get a sample of approved legalized PoA.
Please bear in mind that all documents (and it’s parts) should be notary translated to Russian, including English-language notary acts/seals and Apostille sheet. This requires additional payments to Russian translator and notary.
Do you have a local representative? We will need a technical specification of your product, including a list of encryption functions, protocols and algorithms used.

Question:
If understood correctly: An integrator of any wireless module, which has previously received FSS notification on modular level, does not need own FSS notification, just needs the Notification Number(s) of the module(s) integrated? So if the radio module is registered here: https://portal.eaeunion.org/sites/odata/_layouts/15/Portal.EEC.Registry.Ui/DirectoryForm.aspx?ViewId=859ec98d-f4fe-423a-b6bc-d01b53fd4b7c&ListId=0e3ead06-5475-466a-a340-6f69c01b5687&ItemId=232# No product own FSS registration required? Products affected could be any product in the field of smart home such as fridge, washing machine, LED bulbs with wireless inside - where wirelees component can be W-LAn, Bluetooth , ZigBee. If the modules used in these non typical radio products do alreday have a FSS notification, no own FSS notification is needed? Thanks in advance!
Sandra Gomez 12/1/2017 12:11:37 PM
Answer:
Hello Sandra,
If the integrator imports a module which already has a FSS notification then there is no need to receive one more FSS notification. Also there is no need to register FSS notification for the products made inside the EurAzEs with that module inside.
If the integrator imports some other device with that module inside, the product will have another model name and perhaps another manufacturer. In that case the integrator have to receive another FSS notification for concrete model.

Question:
We have a networking hardware device that does TLS and IPsec cryptography. If we go for FSB certification, can our partners and resellers use the same certificate to import into Russia ? Is there a need to provide encryption keys ? Where can we get detailed requirements of what we need to do to comply ?

Question:
Hello Sir, I have 2 products. One is a router. It has Wi-Fi function and a LAN port. The other is a Satellite settop box which has Wi-Fi client function and a LAN port. Do they need FSS notification?
Jake 9/15/2017 8:53:58 AM
Answer:
Hello Jake,
Wi-Fi standard includes encryption so yes, all Wi-Fi devices require a notification of FSS.
Also routers and set top boxes usually have a web interface with HTTPS. This should be mentioned in the notification too.

Question:
Hello, I would need to encrypt C drive on corporate laptops as this is a part of our company security policy but as Encryption is forbidden in Russia obviously laptops and desk computers are coming without TPM. Would you please be so kind to expalin what are the possiblities ? Thank you! Nataly
Natly 8/3/2017 10:45:13 PM
Answer:
Hello Nataly,
In Russia encryption is not forbidden, you just need to declare the encryption functions of the TPM (notify the FSS).
C drive (HDD, SSD) could be encrypted without TPM (FDE technology on ThinkPad or BitLocker in MS Windows).

Question:
Hey, We are an integrator. We purchase cellular routers from a manufacturer in Europe. They send the units to the United States, where we configure them and send them to our client in Russia. We are being told the FSS Notification is needed in order to ship this way. Do we have to have the cellular router vendor file for this notification? I would think that we, the integrator, or our client in Russia would be considered the authorized representative. We have the EAC certificate for the device, from the manufacturer, is anything else needed? How long would the process take to get this done?
