SSenStone signed a Memorandum of Agreement with Wooribyul, a leader of information security solutions and wired & radio ICT equipment in the defense industry, for joint research and businesses to advance Identification Friend or Foe systems.

Wooribyul has been recognized for its technological prowess in the defense industry through the development of security and ICT system for decades. Under the MOA, the two companies will jointly develop a K-defense model that applies SSenStone’s One-Time Authentication Code technology to IFF in the defense industry.

In particular, OTAC technology provides excellent security performance of IFF systems in the defense industry, where exposure of static information may soon lead to fatal human damage. SSenStone’s amazing technology also provides an environment in which IFF can easily identify targets in one direction by generating unique dynamic random codes and authenticating generated values even without communication networks.

Wooribyul plans to first apply OTAC technology to the IFF system of military drones based on its technology and experience accumulated in the defense industry over the years. In addition to distinguishing friendly and enemy drones, IFF of military drones is an essential system to prevent control problems by identifying affiliation and information of friendly drones, and prevent unauthorized drones from stealing identification codes.
