HAVE GREATER CONTROL OF YOUR DEVICES
Over-The-Air Rekeying (OTAR) Keep your devices deployed in the field where they matter most, not in the shop. Eliminate the logistical and time consuming burden of manually rekeying devices on a regular basis by remotely and securely loading the essential key management updates to your devices via OTAR. With OTAR you reduce the time to re-key devices and gain greater control of those devices by being able to update a device's keys, poll the device, and or erase the device's keys. OTAR simplifies the process of your key management strategy by making it easier to frequently change encryption keys for a greater cyber security posture.
Over-The-Ethernet Keying (OTEK) With OTEK you can provide the same mechanisms for managing encryption keys as OTAR with the exception that the messages are delivered over an Ethernet connection. This is ideal for agencies with infrastructure products such as dispatch positions. OTEK eliminates the need to physically touch any of the dispatch consoles and ensures that your dispatchers can communicate across multiple talk groups enabling secure interoperable communications.
Automatic Rekey Opportunities When devices are out of OTAR range and or powered down, automatic rekey opportunities will intelligently update the devices when they are back on the system or powered back on so devices never miss a key update. Ensure your entire fleet of devices are loaded with current encryption keys with automatic rekey opportunities.
Extend the Capability of OTAR with Store & Forward When devices are out of OTAR range but require an immediate update you can take advantage of our TETRA Key Variable Loader (KVL 4000). The KVL 4000 provides a more localized tool for key distribution by transferring key management messages to out of range devices. Encryption key currency is maintained when the KVL 4000 is connected back to the KMF server.
Secure User Group Management In order to effectively manage secure communications among user groups a Common Key Reference (CKR) is utilized by the KMF. A CKR is a permanent system-wide three-digit key reference assigned to each talkgroup. With a CKR, an operator can visually track the members of a group and their associated encryption key. With the KMF, operators can send a new key to all members of a secure group with a single gesture.
HAVE GREATER VISIBILITY OF YOUR DEVICES
KMF Hello With KMF Hello you can easily see whether your devices are within range of the system network without introducing unnecessary voice traffic.
Group Key Currency Ensures greater visibility of your devices in the field and allows you to know exactly which devices are not up to date with the latest encryption key.
