Communications security – a part of protective security

Communications security forms part of information security for organisations subject to requirements on protective security. Communications security involves the encryption of information using methods approved by the Swedish Armed Forces, so-called secure cryptographic functions. Communications security is used to protect classified information, to ensure that information is not corrupted en route, and to authenticate the sender. Communications security is also used for information that is solely covered by the Public Access to Information and Secrecy Act, so-called high-value information. The protective security classification (Restricted, Confidential, Secret, or Top Secret) of the communicated information governs the requisite level of communications security. Communications security systems exist for different types of information, including speech, text, video conferencing, and data traffic.
