Sagem DS and Rhode & Shwarz : Interoperability in Ciphered Telecommunications

Sagem DS and Rhode & Shwarz : Interoperability in Ciphered Telecommunications

Sources: Sagem Défense Sécurité and Rhode und Schwarz SIT GmbH: Paris and Munich, August 28, 2006.

On June 13th, Sagem Défense Sécurité (SAFRAN Group) and Rohde & Schwarz SIT GmbH made an encrypted telephone call using two different terminals of the two manufacturers on the basis of the new SCIP-Secured Communication Interoperability Protocol - developed by the International ICWG (Interoperability Control Working Group). http://www.rohde-schwarz.com/

Achieved successfully between the companies’ sites in Paris and Berlin using terminals developed at the same time by both companies, the experiment has consolidated the SCIP standard definition which NATO is currently finalizing. Thought to become a NATO STANAG, the SCIP brings a secured transmission capacity between different kinds of terminals, on all types of civilian telecommunication networks (IP, GSM, PSTN, ISDN, Satellites …).

This work is part of the programs to modernize information security that the French and German governments have awarded both companies: Rohde & Schwarz SIT GmbH under the authority of the Federal Armed Forces IT-Office in Germany, and for France, a New Generation Cryptophony study awarded in November 2004 to Sagem Défense Sécurité by the DGA.

This experiment was backed by both the French and German governmental agencies for information security: the BSI (Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik) and the DCSSI (Direction Centrale de la Sécurité des Systèmes d’Information).

Proving Rohde & Schwarz SIT GmbH and Sagem Défense Sécurité’s know-how in realm of the information security, this successful experiment opens up prospects for an efficient solution in information interoperability and protection between telecommunication terminals on a European scale.
