MultiSpeak - Secure Protocol Enterprise Access Kit (MS-SPEAK)

GM0068 – MultiSpeak® Secure Protocol Enterprise Access Kit (MS-SPEAK)

MS-SPEAK increases the interoperability and security of the widely used MultiSpeak data exchange standard by:

  • automatically transforming messages between MultiSpeak versions 3, 4, and 5,
  • validating and forwarding MultiSpeak messages, and
  • increasing standards compliance.

MultiSpeak versions 3, 4, and 5 are standards for communication between different software products. The most widely used version of MultiSpeak is still version 3, which lacks important security features. Different MultiSpeak versions are mutually incompatible.

This project creates a cloud-based enterprise service bus called MS-SPEAK (“MultiSpeak Secure Protocol Enterprise Access Kit”) that enables systems using different MultiSpeak versions to communicate with each other and increases security. That means more interoperability and lower costs for the many utilities that depend on MultiSpeak.
