Abstract

This paper proposes three solutions for interfac- ing an RNC (R~adio Network Controller) to its encryption module via the SCSI (Small Computer System Interface) interface. The first two solutions involve adapting, the Direct Access Device Type to work with an encryption module. The third solution involves the development of a command set supporting encryption modules to be included in the SCSI standard as an Encryption Device Type.
