What is fillgun?

ASELSAN 2070 Fillgun Device is designed for the purpose of carrying and loading crypto keys and network plans securely to the cryptographic devices. It communicates with the connected terminal through ethernet and asynchronous serial interfaces.

What is crypto fill?

A fill device or key loader is a module used to load cryptographic keys into electronic encryption machines. Fill devices are usually hand held and electronic ones are battery operated. The DS-101 protocol can also be used to load cryptographic algorithms and software updates for crypto modules.

What is an SKL used for?

The SKL is a hand-held device that Soldiers use to load cryptographic keys onto their equipment; thereby, enabling secure communication.

How much does an SKL cost?

The SKL is backward-compatible with existing End Cryptographic Units (ECU) and forward-compatible with future security equipment and systems, including NSA’s Key Management Infrastructure. Between 2005 and 2007, the U.S. Army budget included funds for over 24,000 SKL units. The estimated price for FY07 was $1708 each.

What can the DS-101 protocol be used for?

The DS-101 protocol can also be used to load cryptographic algorithms and software updates for crypto modules. Besides encryption devices, systems that can require key fill include IFF, GPS and frequency hopping radios such as Have Quick and SINCGARS .

Are there any fill devices that support DS-101?

DS-101 is supported by fill devices like the AN/CYZ-10 . DS-101 is described in the EKMS 603 standard, but unfortunately this standard is not publicly available. It is known however, that DS-101 is an asynchronous serial protocol running at 64 kb/s.

What kind of protocol is User Datagram Protocol?

Difficulty Level : Medium. Last Updated : 19 Oct, 2020. User Datagram Protocol (UDP) is a Transport Layer protocol. UDP is a part of Internet Protocol suite, referred as UDP/IP suite. Unlike TCP, it is unreliable and connectionless protocol. So, there is no need to establish connection prior to data transfer.

Which is the physical interface of cryptomuseum DS-101?

The physical interface is commonly implemented as RS-485, but RS-232D versions are known to exist as well, which can be useful for application in Personal Computer (PC) based environments.
