In order to have proper encrypted radio commu- nications, encryption keys need to be assigned to the targeted radios. This may be done using OTAR (Over The Air Rekey) where keys are first assigned to the targeted units using a KMF (Key Management Facility), following which they are transmitted over the air in data packets using a pre- defined protocol.
