MerlinM2M simplifies the complexity of protecting cargo flow and fleets against tampering, compromise, fraud, theft, and man-in-the-middle attack.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) July 17, 2012
MerlinM2M Security Platform protects communications and asset tracking for commercial, government, and private fleets with dynamic encryption and authentication, designed for shrewd responsiveness in diverse situations where certainty is paramount.
“Tracking is the first line of fleet and cargo defense, as it decreases theft and leverages recovery; however, It is no longer enough,” advocates Prem Sobel, Founding CTO, MerlinCryption, “Carriers need encryption to conceal location, identify containers, and to secure alerts, routing changes, and reports, not to mention, protecting remote units, operators, and intellectual property.”
MerlinM2M encrypts GPS, wireless, satellite, and radio. Encrypted payloads can be transmitted by any communications protocol, on any network, and are portable to any device and endpoint.
The MerlinM2M cryptosystem is built on Anti-Statistical Block Encryption (ASBE) and utilizes variable key length. Each key scales in size between 2008 bits and 2 GB. Additionally, the encryption engine allows scalable passwords up to 64 KB.
The algorithm is not subject to attack models and methods of Cryptanalysis, supporting secure critical infrastructures, maritime, port authorities, national borders, import/export, and real-time commerce. Every encrypted transmission between base control, vehicle, aircraft, vessel, satellite, and device is different, as the algorithm produces different cyphertext with varying length, even when repeating the same plaintext, key, and password input.
Each partner highly benefits from customization of the encryption engine, which is unique to the individual company’s system and is not interoperable with any other custom engine.
MerlinCryption’s patent pending random data generator outputs keys and passwords that are ‘generated-destroyed-recreated’ on demand, making key/password transfer between end points unnecessary. The generation, communication, and storage of encryption keys and encrypted passwords cannot be detected.
The cryptosystem platform provides dynamic multi-factor authentication and is run by MerlinWrap™ scripting platform controller, which essentially “wraps” the entire encryption and authentication process into a tightly customized and impenetrable sequence of execution.
MerlinCryption supports special purpose systems with flexible security designed with a small memory footprint in flash memory or files. Software is written in C# for Windows and in C for DOS, Linux, and QNX.
