Trlokom proposes to develop a novel and low cost solution for local speech processing and secure voice communication in digital wireless systems. Commercially available wireless communication systems do not have adequate security measures to ensureend-to-end secure communication. Since, wireless communication systems are now becoming very popular in military as well as in commercial world, providing end-to-end secure communication will reduce the danger of eavesdropping, credit-card theft, andindustrial espionage.Our solution will be based on low-power and high-speed hardware for local processing of the speech signal. The same hardware will also assist in encryption, voice-authentication, protocol processing, and secure key-management.At the end of Phase I, we will deliver our design for an end-to-end secure wireless communication system with voice-authentication. We will provide detailed information about the component technologies and our integration methodology for the COTS andcustom components.Digital cellular phone with internet access are starting to become available and we expect to see a big demand for security systems in digital wireless phones. Adding voice authentication to the security systems can make them much more user friendly andreduce the fraud associated with stolen phone. It could also be used with satellite telephone service (STS) to provide military with the ability to securely communicate where cellular phone service is not available.
