Abstract

The Selective Radio Inhibit feature allows the CentraVBasestation operator to send a message to a radio that prevents further use of the radio until it receives a subsequent "uninhibit" message, or until certain non- volatile memory contents can be restored by an author- ized service center. Certain measures are presently implemented to prevent unauthorized activation of inhibited radios, especially for radios with Secure capa- bilities. It may be desirable, however, to provide an addi- tional measure of security.
