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 selection that activates a Rekey Request that gives the radio all of the keys it would normally use. Or radios with encryption may be rekeyed with encryp- tion keys as part of a normal rekeying schedule by the KMC.
