International Radio Security Services
The WInnF International Radio Security Services (IRSS) API standardizes a software security interface for use by the international radio community. In particular, this API is targeted for deployment in radio systems based on the Software Communication Architecture (SCA), though that is not necessarily a prerequisite for its use. In its current increment, the intent of this API is to promote waveform (WF) portability between various radio platforms that provide the API. As such, the focus of this API is on the security interfaces required to meet waveform needs. Although working systems require additional platform security interfaces to fulfill a number of needs, such as keyfill, security policies, etc., standardizing such interfaces does not add to waveform portability. Additionally, it is at the platform level where the variation is expected to be the highest across the international community, making such standardization difficult. As such, platform security interfaces will only be detailed where there is overlap with waveform security interfaces.
