Find about ANSI C12.22 / IEEE Std 1703 Network Node Security Mechanism Names
All ANSI C12.22 / IEEE Std 1703 network nodes must be protected by a security mechanism. The security mechanism is identified using a globally unique ISO OID (Object Identifier).
ECMX is an OID registration provider and supplier of ANSI C12.22 and IEEE Std 1703 (and other applications) of Security Mechanism Names.
The Security Mechanism Name identifier can be communicated in messages exchanged among nodes on the ANSI C12.22 / IEEE Std 1703 network. The ANSI C12.22 / IEEE Std 1703 predefined two security mechanism names.
The default and native security algorithm of ANSI C12.22 / IEEE Std 1703 native mechanism. This mechanism supports three modes of operation:
- Cleartext, where all the elements of the ANSI C12.22 / IEEE Std 1703 Message are transmitted in the clear and unauthenticated where all fields readable.
- Authenticated, where ANSI C12.22 / IEEE Std 1703 Message are authenticated, but transmitted as readable fields in the clear.
- Encrypted, where the ANSI C12.22 / IEEE Std 1703 Message are encrypted and authenticated. Therefore, sensitive fields are not transmitted in the clear and are not readable, by those who do not have access to the necessary cipher keys.
- A security algorithm that allows ANSI C12.22 / IEEE Std 1703 to operate in compatibility mode with ANSI C12.21 / IEEE Std 1702 Authentication algorithm.
All other security mechanisms (i.e. user defined or future implementations need to be properly register. ECMX is the registrar for such implementations.)
