Beyond any encryption security that
may be inherent to RF Modems or a
commercial carrier communications network used, the MDC software
secures your information in
the security of data transmission, the MDC system allows you to explicitly
control which devices and users are allowed access. All MDC devices attempting to
communicate on the system must have an authorized MDC address number and
optionally an authorized Media Access Control (MAC) ID associated with the MDC
address. An easy to use security permission interface allows you to
configure and authorize individual devices and determine what functions that
each specific device is allowed to process through the MDC Controller.
By allowing transaction types to be restricted on a device-by-device basis the same MDC system can be used by multiple agencies (Police, Fire, Medical, etc.) while preventing un-authorized access and maintaining the security of sensitive local database information as well as State/NCIC data via Crimestar's Message Switch State Interface. Beyond device specific security, the Crimestar MDC system allows you to configure specific user ID's for access. Each user ID has a unique password and user ID's can be mapped as either the Unit ID (Radio Call Sign) or the Officer ID provided during the MDC Log-In process. Each user ID can be granted individual transaction permissions.
multi-layered approach means that before a specific transaction type can be
performed both the MDC device and the logged-in MDC user must be granted
permission through system security.
