All public frequencies and transmission of data in any format will be secured by 2019 within USFP. TSN & USFP installations will begin using Rivest, Shamir, and Adelman's technique to complete this task. Your browser will be automatically forwarded to a secure channel, a green lock will appear in the Uniform Resource Locator to indicate a secure channel.
Hailing and transmitting on open and encrypted frequencies between other vessels and space stations is a vital part of operations. The act of sending and receiving of information in the forms of voice, video or even information can either be unsecured or secured. There are times when sensitive, confidential, unaltered and even company's intellectual property is required. It is the responsiblity of the crews on board the vessels, to maintain a high level of secure communication.
A public key infrastructure assumes asymmetric encryption where a Private Key and Public Key are used. Since encrypted data transmission takes too much time in case of asymmetric encryption, this kind of encryption is used for a secure symmetric key exchange that is used for actual transmitted data encryption and decryption. The minimum encryption key value is 2048-bit on our systems.
