Entire regions of space
|Usage and history|
The encryption module was a device capable of encoding communications in entire regions of space. It was a palm-sized device, able to be transported easily.
The Confederacy of Independent Systems developed the encryption module and began using it around 20 BBY. A Providence-class carrier/destroyer commanded by the Super tactical droid Aut-O was entrusted with the first encryption module, allowing General Grievous to encrypt his tactical communications in the region. When Republic Intelligence intercepted one of Grievous's transmissions, they were unable to decipher the encoding of the message's audio. In response, the Republic's sent a team to retrieve the module from Aut-O's Providence-class carrier/destroyer.
