TR-8.3 Encryption


Committee Description

The Encryption Working Group was established to develop the encryption standards for public-safety land mobile communication. These include portable radios for hand-held operation, mobile radios for vehicular operation, base stations for fixed installations and other fixed equipment for wide-area operation and console operator positions as well as computer equipment for data communications and interconnection of said components with other base stations or public-switched networks. The standards will define the means to secure digital information in a unified manner to facilitate compatible operation among suppliers past, present and future. Such standards will, to the maximum extent possible, allow the insertion of technology promising best performance for operational applications.
