The KVL6K AIEA for DIMETRA systems
The KVL6K AIEA consists of a USB Hardware Security Module (HSM) that provides secure storage
and cryptographic operations and a KVL6K AIEA application that runs on a computer using the
Microsoft® Windows® operating system that enables users to easily manage and load keys.
KVL6K AIEA is compatible with Motorola Solutions DIMETRA infrastructure and Motorola Solutions TETRA devices.
The security of keys is paramount. The Hardware Security Module (HSM) has been designed to meet FIPS 140-3 Level 3 hardware specifications. It provides tamper protection, cryptographic operations and stores all critical parameters.
Separate Administrator and Operator roles are available for users. Adopting roles enables users to have the appropriate authorisation of key management activities.
The KVL6K AIEA securely stores the Infrastructure Key generated by the DIMETRA Authentication Centre for secure transportation and loading into DIMETRA infrastructure components. It also securely stores the Authentication Key and Static Cipher Key generated by the Provisioning Centre for secure transportation and loading into Motorola Solutions TETRA devices.
The KVL6K AIEA can also define and load master keys to provision Authentication Centre and Provisioning Centre crypto modules.
Intuitive User Interface
The KVL6K AIEA Windows application has an intuitive user interface and supports touch screen devices, as well as both night and day modes.
The application dashboard helps with day-to-day operations and enables fast and easy key maintenance. Different views, such as the Base Station provisioning view with data about TETRA Site Controllers and MST Base Radios, provide an additional level of information.
