The Kinfemy Poku Kyn or KPK is the official information network used by the Poku Saeruo Degonjo.
Originally a dedicated meson connection was in place between the Sotâka Ruomâqi (World Station), Poku Movi Vamâqi (Clan Void Berth). Periodic updates were transmitted via Subspace Communications to the HS-ST3-1a Fuâmy'a Ruomâqi (Watcher Stations)s within the Siama Rya (Soul of the Divine).
In 754 CY (YE 35) the network was reconfigured to upgrade the connections to the Watcher stations and include one to the HS-ST4-1a Kâur Ruomâqi (Way Station), their Kavoráy Rouka (Embassy) on Yamatai (Planet) and a bridge was put in place to connect to SYNC.
In system communications use the network, but use either RADIO or Subspace Communications depending on range.
As settlements are established they will be added to the network. Starships if within 20 LY of a supported location can access the KPK via a subspace relay.
All communications in the KPK are encrypted, though there are two levels. General and tactical, tactical is the most secure level. General is used for civilian communications. The KPK uses the clan's latest data packet encryption for transmissions, and authentication. Additionally all messages are packaged with a time stamp from the originator, this is used to ensure that the message took the appropriate time to reach its destination.
Ships may only receive broadcast access to the KPK via a relay after being authenticated.
