  • Does the Covia Connector require any third-party licenses?

    No.

  • How are devices authenticated?

    The Covia Connector unifier program on each device generates a public/private key pair when it is run the first time. A statistically unique 128-bit Device Id is formed as a hash from the public key. Establishing the required secure encrypted communications session is impossible if the device does not have the private key corresponding to its Device Id.

    Mobile phones are usually addressed by phone number; however, Alert and Respond requires additional authentication by using the carrier SMS system to send and receive a message to ensure that the correct device is being communicated with. Once the phone number has been authenticated through the carrier infrastructure, the Covia Connector generated Device Id is used.

  • Has the Command & Control platform’s security features been certified by the Department of Defense?

    All security features are built on top of standard PKI algorithms that have been approved by the NSA. Obtaining DoD certifications for Covia Labs’ specific implementations has been initiated.
