Military Messaging (STANAG 4406)

STANAG 4406 is the NATO standard for Military Messaging based on X.400. STANAG 4406 Military Messaging is used for Formal Military Messaging, and defines a number of functional and security features to support formal military messaging. It is often used for informal Military Messaging, particularly for High Grade messaging, where features of X.400 to support high reliability are of particular importance.
Used for both Strategic and Tactical messaging, STANAG 4406 has a number of special protocols to support tactical messaging, in particular to support very low bandwidth links such as HF radio (STANAG 4406 Annex E) and to support receivers in EMCON (“Emission Control”) mode who can receive but not send data.
