SevenCs encryption for Peruvian Hydrography Office

SevenCs has announced that its encryption software has been chosen by the Peruvian Hydrography Office to protect its nautical information.

Following a competitive tender process, the Direción de Hidrografia y Navegación (DHN) has decided to utilise SevenCs’ ENC Encryptor to protect its chart data in accordance with IHO S-63.

ENCs are not excluded from copyright infringement and data piracy is a general problem, notes German developer SevenCs. The Peruvian DHN, as a publisher of official nautical information, wants to protect and authenticate their certified data according to the official security scheme.

Commander Julio Behr Laca, head of the cartography department, said, “Official Peruvian ENCs are distributed by IC-ENC. With the encryption software provided by SevenCs, DHN now is able to regulate the distribution of ENCs inside their organisation and for governmental vessels. With the encryption software we will improve our quality processes and overall control of the data.”
