Cellcrypt Mobile cleared for UK government
Cellcrypt has announced that its Cellcrypt Mobile Baseline for BlackBerry has received CESG CAPS approval, clearing the way for the system to be used for UK government departments for restricted/baseline communications. The company made the announcement 26 June 2012.
CAPS (CESG Assisted Products Service) is a UK Cryptographic Evaluation Service run by CESG, the UK government's National Technical Authority for Information Assurance which provides policy and assistance on the security of communications and electronic data for central government departments and agencies, and the armed forces. CESG also helps protects the interests of the UK’s wider public sector, including law enforcement and local government, as well as the essential services that form the UK's Critical National Infrastructure.
Cellcrypt Mobile Baseline is a smartphone software application that provides end-to-end voice call encryption on commercially available off-the-shelf BlackBerry smartphones for UK government. It is an easy-to-use software application that makes secure calling as easy as making a normal mobile phone call and uses the IP data channel of mobile (2G, 3G, and 4G) networks.
The system comprises a handset application and a back-end infrastructure. The BlackBerry smartphones have to be part of an IL3 deployment of the BlackBerry enterprise solution, also approved by CESG and configured as per the CESG Security Procedures.
