Abstract

The system is conventional Over-The-Air- Rekeying (OTAR) or is trunking OTAR. Radios with encryption may request encryption keys from a Key Management Controller (KMC) by a menu selec- tion that activates a Rekey Request. A Rekey Request data message is sent from the radio to the KMC so the radio can be OTARed the encryption keys that it would normally use.
