AbstractIn the United States, the telemetry industry has traditionally relied on the National Security Agency (NSA) to provide leadership and/or solutions to encrypt telemetry data for streaming applications. However, with the current heightened concern to protect data for programs with short development cycles, encryption solutions based on the commercial Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithms offer options that augment the NSA solutions. This paper describes the development of an encryption – decryption module, and the attendant trades in using (AES) block-cipher based encryption algorithm for streaming applications, resulting link performance, and the certification choices and requirements.
