NENA Invites Participants in ICE 9 Focused on Security
Friday, June 29, 2018 | Comments

The National Emergency Number Association (NENA) Next-Generation 9-1-1 Industry Collaboration Event (ICE) series invited participants for the upcoming ninth event. The series provides the opportunity for 9-1-1 equipment and service providers to come together to test products and services in an open, supportive and collaborative environment.

ICE 9 will focus on the required security mechanisms associated with the delivery of a 9-1-1 call to a public-safety answering point (PSAP) as defined within the latest version of NENA-STA-010. All core functional elements have a role to play in the security of a well-designed next-generation 9-1-1 (NG 9-1-1) system and each will be tested to the extent possible during the event.

End-to-end voice and multimedia call and session interoperability test scenarios shall be used to test the following elements:
• PSAP credentialing and identity management
• Authentication, authorization and data rights management
• Privacy and integrity protection such as transport layer security (TLS), IP security (IPSec) and encryption

The following items could also be tested:
• Data integrity and protection within each component database or control table throughout the NG 9-1-1 architecture
• Security of, and capability for, the additional data query function

NENA invites all interested vendors and entities that have a stake in improving 9-1-1 and emergency services access to participate in ICE 9. To participate in ICE 9, contact Delaine Arnold.
