Germany’s highest level security portfolio

SecuSUITE for BlackBerry 10 is the first security solution to fulfil the German government’s requirements for a highly secure eavesdropping protection system for smartphones. It protects voice communications, text messages, mobile emails and personal information managers (PIM) containing calendar entries and contacts from electronic eavesdropping. SecuSUITE for BlackBerry 10 is the only solution for encrypting calls and data to have been provisionally approved by the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) at the VS-NfD (classified – for official use only) security level. The high-security solution is available on all latest generation BlackBerry smartphones.

Secusmart has been supplying German government agencies with SecuSUITE for BlackBerry 10 since 2013. In 2014, the Federal Security Network was extended beyond SecuSUITE for BlackBerry 10 to include eavesdropping protection solutions for telephone switchboards (SecuGATE LV) and teleconferences (SecuBRIDGE) as well as secure desk telephones.

At CeBIT 2015, Secusmart rounded off the portfolio by unveiling the SecuTABLET, a secure tablet for German and international public authorities and companies that enables strictly confidential data to be accessed and processed on the go.

The German government was the first to recognise the importance of tap-proof communications. Today, governments around the world have placed their trust in Secusmart’s security solutions.

The heart of SecuSUITE for BlackBerry 10

The Secusmart Security Card is at the heart of all Secusmart solutions, where it is responsible for protecting emails, text messages and voice communications. The miniature computer, which is integrated into a standard micro-SD card, contains the NXP SmartMX P5CT072 crypto-controller with a PKI coprocessor for authentication. An additional high-speed coprocessor encrypts voice communications and data using the 128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). AES is currently considered the most secure and efficient algorithm for the symmetric encryption of data and voice communications. To encrypt information, the smart card enables 340 sextillion keys – in theory, it would take approximately 149 billion years to crack the code created. SecuSUITE for BlackBerry 10 is therefore able to meet all the German government’s requirements for secure mobile telecommunications at the VS-NfD (classified – for official use only) security level.
