The Tetra Class 3 encryption interoperability certification has been granted to the Nokia Tetra system and three Tetra radios, including the Nokia THR850 and THR880 handsets. With this certification, Nokia's technology now has been proven to meet the strict requirements

for communications security in mission-critical government radio operations.

The Class 3 encryption is an encryption mechanism provided by ETSI Tetra standards enabling the technology to meet the most stringent security needs of professional mobile radio users. Class 3 combines efficient authentication of radio terminals - which Nokia Tetra products have supported since 2000 - with content encryption secured by automatically generated dynamic ciphering keys.

Currently, Nokia is testing Class 3 encryption functionality with a number of other Tetra radio terminal suppliers to achieve official interoperability certification with a wider portfolio of Tetra radios. Further, the Nokia system has also received an interoperability certificate for end-to-end encryption.
