Hytera offers Basic and Advanced Digital Encryption
Encryption is fundamental to contemporary internet security. An encryption system scrambles sensitive data using mathematical calculations to turn data into code. The original data can only be revealed with the correct key, allowing it to remain secure from everyone but the authorized parties.
Basic encryption - Included in most Hytera radios with exception of lower tier. Basic encryption gives you the ability to encrypt voice or text messages with up to 64 characters. See below:
Advanced digital encryption has two variants: "full Hytera" or DMRA (AES256 encryption). SKU SW00017 and SW00018 (per terminal or repeater).
AES is a symmetrical key cipher. This means the same secret key is used for both encryption and decryption, and both the sender and receiver of the data need a copy of the key. By contrast, asymmetric key systems use a different key for each of the two processes. Asymmetric keys are best for external file transfers, whereas symmetric keys are better suited to internal encryption. The advantage of symmetric systems like AES is their speed. Because a symmetric key algorithm requires less computational power than an asymmetric one, it’s faster and more efficient to run.
