Secure Chorus utilises MIKEY-SAKKE as the encryption algorithm at its core and defines other protocols and codecs which Secure Chorus products must support. This provides for a number of key characteristics: end-to-end encryption and can be used in a variety of environments, both at rest (e.g. storage) and in transit (e.g. network systems). All products can be centrally managed, giving an enterprise full control of a system’s security as well as the ability to comply with any auditing requirements through a managed and logged process.
MIKEY-SAKKE has been approved by 3GPP (the collaboration project which provides system specifications for cellular telecommunications network technologies) for use in Mission-Critical applications, such as emergency services communications.
