  1. Future NATO Secure MultimediaStandard Dr Michael Street CIS Division NATO C3 Agency

  2. Secure Multimedia CommunicationsCurrent status • Using heterogeneous networks & commercial communications infrastructure • Whether we want to or not • Security devices traditionally network dependent • Heterogeneous networks drive use of non-interoperable security devices • No secure interoperability • Fragmented market

  3. Keys for ISDN Phone -Turkey US Keys For STE Turkey’s Secure ISDN Phone STE ISDN UK Keys For BRENT ISDN ISDN BRENT Evolving Access Networks PSTN TCE 500/B PSTN GSM Analog Cellular TopSec-GSM PSTN STU-III US Keys For STU-III NATO Keys for TCE 500/B NATO Keys for NSK 200 TIGER NSK 200 TCE 500/B STU-III Non-Interoperability ISDN ISDN Homogeneous Telephone Networks National Keys for TopSec-703 TopSec-703 Interoperability is not possible, even if keys are shared. Slide taken from SHAPE / NC3A FNBDT workshop

  4. Future NATO Secure Multimedia StandardisationObjectives • Provide secure communications for coalition (e.g. NATO, multi-national peacekeeping), national and eventually commercial use • In a single piece of equipment • For multiple services • Provide end to end security over heterogeneous networks • Voice, video, data • Because types of network are becoming more diverse

  5. INTERNET IP PHONE Emerging Transport Networks W-LAN TDM, ATM, IP, MPLS PSTN GSM TETRA, APCO-25 Analog Cellular CDMA EDGE TRI-TAC & MSE MSS TACTICAL DIGITAL RADIOS 1X EV-D0 Communications Networks Evolving ISDN Evolving Access Networks The Era of a Fragmented Communications Network Slide taken from SHAPE / NC3A FNBDT workshop

  6. Characteristics • Minimum requirement is end to end data bearer (2.4 kbps async) • through PSTN, ISDN, GSM, PMR, IP, Tactical, Satcom etc • Minimum interoperable mode (voice & data) • Protocol allows for national / commercial proprietary enhancements (private mode) • Communities of interest separated by algorithms and keys. • Prior agreement on common protocol (FNBDT) in NATO, and commitment by nations. • Creating business opportunities for national industry

  7. Future NATO Secure Multimedia StandardHow ? • Developing a NATO standard • Independent document configuration body • Active standards development • Independent test and validation of equipment • Industry can apply national / military developments for commercial security products • Maybe known in NATO as the Secure Communication Interoperability Protocol

  8. Way ahead • National governments can obtain specs. through liaison with National Security Agency (currently) • Industry may get specs. through their national government • Identification of secure communications service requirements which may drive future development of standardised protocol for interoperable secure multi-media communication

  9. Status • Basic standard available to NATO nations and to others through bi-lateral agreement. • Sweden, Australia, NZ, • Products already available • GSM, ISDN, CDMA, PSTN etc • NATO working on standardisation • FNBDT only candidate for secure tactical communications • Trials and development in several NATO nations
