Launch of trailblazing Android-based secure mobile phone at the world’s largest information technology trade show
HANNOVER, March 5 – GSMK launched a new groundbreaking secure mobile phone, the CryptoPhone 500, at the CeBIT trade show in Hannover, Germany today.
The CryptoPhone 500 is the first Android-based secure mobile phone available on the global market offering true 360° mobile device security. By combining GSMK’s renowned voice and message encryption with a revolutionary approach towards mobile device protection, the new phone is the first to offer comprehensive defense-grade security on a commercial Android-based platform.
The CryptoPhone 500’s technical architecture offers a level of security previously unattainable on a commercial mobile phone platform. Its unique level of protection rests upon four pillars:
- End-to-end voice and message encryption: The CryptoPhone 500 offers secure end-to-end encrypted messaging and voice over IP calls on any network, including 2G GSM, 3G/UMTS, and Wireless LAN. GSMK CryptoPhone IP’s high transmission protocol efficiency with 4.8kbps bidirectional data streams allows the phone’s easy deployment even in the most challenging network environments where only limited data throughput is available.
- Hardened operating system: The CryptoPhone 500 is the first mobile phone featuring GSMK’s secure Android operating system, built from source code with granular security management and streamlined, security-optimized components and communication stacks. GSMK’s unique hardware module controller and permission enforcement module control access to network, data and sensors (camera, microphone, etc.), keeping the user in control of individual security policies.
- Baseband firewall: Based upon three years of cutting-edge research in baseband processor security, the new patent-pending GSMK CryptoPhone Baseband Firewall™ offers unique protection against over-the-air attacks with constant monitoring of baseband processor activity, baseband attack detection, and automated initiation of countermeasures. A global first, the CryptoPhone 500’s Baseband Firewall provides a revolutionary line of defence against over-the-air attacks not available on any other product.
- Encrypted storage system: Protecting data at rest against unauthorized access, the CryptoPhone 500 features a two-layer storage encryption system with whole disk encryption as well as a separate secure storage container for contacts, messages, and notes with smart folders. The secure storage container is only unlocked when needed and has separate encryption, lock timeout, temperature control and passphrase management functions that double as access control for encrypted communications functionality.
The GSMK CryptoPhone 500 is fully compatible with all GSMK CryptoPhone IP mobile, satellite and fixed-line encryption products, allowing secure end-to-end encrypted calls across network borders. In combination with its revolutionary security architecture, it offers an unsurpassed level of mobile device protection previously unavailable on a commercial mobile phone platform.
