Crypto-Key Management
We have more than 15 years’ experience in developing Crypto-Key Management systems, in particular for secure government satellite communication missions such as Skynet.

Such systems are used for Telemetry, Tracking & Command (TT&C) links, and for the user communication service. The systems generate crypto keys and then support operational management of the keys. The activities can involve:

  • Full key lifecycle accounting to track the creation, distribution, use and retirement of each key
  • Supporting tracking of the ‘roll-over’ from one set of keys to the next
  • Back-up site capability, with database synchronisation between the ‘nominal KMF’ and the ‘back-up KMF’
