Abstract

   This document provides the mechanisms for secure transport of UAS
   Network-RemoteID and Command-and-Control messaging.  Both HIP and
   DTLS based methods are described.

1.  Introduction

   This document defines mechanisms to provide secure transport for the
   ASTM Network Remote ID [F3411-19] (N-RID) and Command and Control
   (C2) messaging.

   A secure transport for C2 is critical for UAS Beyond visual line of
   sight (BVLOS) operations.

   Two options for secure transport are provided: HIPv2 [RFC7401] and
   DTLS [DTLS-1.3-draft].  These options are generally defined and their
   applicability is compared and contrasted.  It is up to N-RID and C2
   to select which is preferred for their situation.
