This research introduces a new military crypto-cipher authentication model developed for an Integrated Air Defence System (IADS). This study focused on the encryption aspect that is built as a hidden cryptographic of a sleeping encryption unit (SEU) in an IADS. SEU is utilised as a sleeping unit under the control of manufacturer countries during wartime. SEU permits high access to manufacturer countries to remotely deactivate an IADS. This hidden unit identifies and verifies targets before targeting them, thereby preventing their destruction at a critical time. Algorithms and protocols assigned to this unit are often confidential, highly secret and undisclosed.
