Motorola now offers advanced encryption standard

Friday, 7 November 2003, 12:33 PM EST

Motorola has added the most advanced layer of encryption for its Canopy wireless broadband platform to further secure sensitive data from "hackers" and eavesdroppers who attempt to access or alter information. Motorola is offering the option to United-States-based businesses to equip their Canopy system modules with the new Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), which is endorsed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. AES is a special 128-bit encryption -- more secure than filtering, Wired Equivalent Protocol (WEP), Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS) and Triple Data Encryption Standard (3DES). A 128-bit key has more than 340,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (340 followed by 36 zeroes) possible keys.

The added security layer on the Canopy wireless solution is equivalent with security encryption on today's wireline networks. Businesses that conduct financial transactions, medical data transfers, remote surveillance, safety, security and homeland defense demand the highest levels of security to protect the private data sent over their wireless broadband networks.
