    I'm seeing these unknown link control messages carried in a contiguous chunk of TDULC messaging on some Phase 1 traffic channels. In both examples, it was immediately following an AES-256 encrypted group call. Within sdrtrunk I'm calling these RADIO REPROGRAM, but I'm not yet certain of the...

    How easy is it to employ encryption on DMR?

    I haven't found this exact question answered, but I am monitoring a DMR one freq system run by a business. I'm curious, if they decided to, how easy would it be for them to encrypt their communications? Is it as easy as simply turning on a setting, or would they need to incur extra costs? I know...

    DMR vs P25 - Encryption standards and software vs hardware encryption

    Hey all, I'm really hoping this doesn't turn into a flame war or anything, I'm just trying to better understand the key differences in implementation. Question I'm aware that companies like Anytone, Hytera, Motorola, etc. offer encryption in their DMR radios, and I know that Anytone and Hytera...

    Encryption keys and DMR repeaters

    For anyone using 128 bit encryption, I have a Python script that will generate a cryptographically strong key that involves 14 rounds of randomization, SHA-512, PBKDF2, HMAC, a 64 byte initial token, a 64 byte dynamic salt, and 1 million iterations. They come out strong, when I histogrammed over...

    OKC PD in the Clear / Most Tulsa PD encrypted

    As you scroll through the OKWIN P25 Phase 1 database it is always interesting all those "in the clear" and then the ones "encrypted". Seems strange OKC PD seems all in the Clear when the majority of the Tulsa PD channels (minus dispatch) are encrypted. I fully support encrypted for some...

I believe it’s safe to say that the APX Next radios have came in along with the new mics that Officers and Deputies will be receiving as well. Now I don’t know if DU-COMM has gotten theirs yet but the...

    XPR 7550 Basic/Advanced Encryption Compatability

    I'm currently looking to see if anyone knows which Amateur or "Ham" style radio brands/models (Hytera, Retevis, TYT, ect) are compatible with either the Basic or Advanced encryptions on the XPR 7550, or if there is a trick to maybe use decimal VS Hex in one or the other. I'm currently working...

    Any Departments That Ended Encryption or Reversed Decision To Encrypt?

    I've search for this answer everywhere with little to no success. But can anybody name any agencies that either went fully encrypted then later decided/was forced to go unencrypted again? Or even agencies that have said they will never encrypt (dispatch) traffic? A few that I've heard of was New...
