• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Hi,

When the event log screen shows "Enc Group call" and ends with "Alg=GP", does the "GP" indicate the system is using the General Privacy feature?

What are the other abbreviations that might be seen after "Alg=" ?

DSD+ occasionally had decode errors that are reflected in the event logs. This includes seeing things that don't make sense such as "Alg=GP" and incorrectly detecting "Enc Group call" on voice streams that are not encrypted. It also generates other odd quirks like incorrect talkgroup and radio IDs.

A bad decode isn't going to make up a nonexistent encryption algorithm.


Right you are Slicer. Unfortunately I typed GP from memory when I was thinking BP.

Does it indicate AES if they use it?
Not for DMR. This system uses AES exclusively, but DSD+ always reports "EP".
