Secure Chorus joins The European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI)


Secure Chorus has announced today that it has joined The European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) as member.

ETSI produces globally-applicable standards for Information and Communications Technologies (ICT), including fixed, mobile, radio, converged, broadcast and Internet technologies set up in 1988 by the European Conference of Postal and Telecommunications Administrations (CEPT) in response to proposals from the European Commission. ETSI is the recognized regional standards body – European Standards Organization (ESO) – dealing with telecommunications, broadcasting and other electronic communications networks and services. This includes supporting European regulations and legislation through the creation of Harmonised European Standards. Only standards developed by the three ESOs (CEN, CENELEC and ETSI) are recognized as European Standards (ENs).

Founded initially to serve European needs, it also collaborates and work in partnership with different types of organizations around the world. In addition, as a partner in the international Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP™), ETSI is helping to develop 4G and 5G mobile communications. It also works with partners around the globe in the oneM2M Partnership Project to develop standards for Machine-to-Machine communications.

Elisabetta Zaccaria, Chairman of Secure Chorus commented:

“We are excited to join ETSI to learn and share our knowledge around the development of interoperability standards based on products which contain MIKEY-SAKKE open cryptography standard. Of special interest to Secure Chorus is the work that has been undertaken at ETSI to date on the “Mission Critical Push to Talk (MCPTT) over LTE” standard, which makes use of the MIKEY-SAKKE protocol. Secure Chorus is also interested in sharing knowledge in the ongoing MCPTT Plugtests™. The goal of the MCPTT Plugtests™ event is to validate the interoperability of a variety of different solutions on the market through different scenarios and test cases. Secure Chorus is also very interested in taking part to the “ETSI Working Group on Quantum Safe Cryptography” which is looking to assess and make recommendations for quantum-safe cryptographic primitives and protocols, including the protocols used in secure enterprise and government communication.”
