About PRiSM

PRiSM is a generic code signing system designed and operated by CommScope Sentry™ that supports standard based and customized code signing mechanisms and Access Tokens which enables debug and advanced management features on CommScope devices. It is highly configurable to satisfy varying customer requirements. Currently PRiSM supports not only all internal CommScope product needs, but also over 40 external customers and vendors.


Code Signing

PRiSM supports standard RSA PKCS #1 and PKCS #7 based digital signatures. It also supports miscellaneous customized signing mechanisms.


PRiSM supports standard AES and RSA encryption and decryption operations

Access Token

PRiSM enables debug or advanced management features on a device based on signed objects called Access Tokens. Access Token provides platform specific control or resource access flags. It provides encrypted JTAG key delivery.
