ETSI algorithms

ETSI algorithms

The following is a list of algorithms developed and administered by ETSI. They may be used subject to certain conditions. Each algorithm in the list includes a link to a confidentiality and restricted usage undertaking. This outlines the conditions under which a license will be granted to use the algorithm.

Name of Algorithm Extra Information Price/
TETRA - The rules for the management of the encryption algorithms are given below:  
docxTEA1 TS 101 053-1 1,000
TEA2 (see note)
TS 101 053-2
Note: The Custodian for the TEA2 algorithm is the TCCA & not ETSI.
docxTEA3 TS 101 053-3 1,000
docxTEA4 TS 101 053-4 1,000
docxTAA1 TS 101 052 1,000
