Earlier this week we showed you Gi & Di's Mobile Security Card for secure email communication. Another attention getting BlackBerry solution that surfaced at WES 2009 was from Cellcrypt. They provide end-to-end encryption for voice calling to ensure conversations remain secure at all times.

You can watch the video above for an overview and click over to Cellcrypt's detailed explanation page for a full run down of how it works (uses an encrypted mobile protocol which runs over IP). Using CellCrypt adds a few seconds to the calling process, but if you're in an industry where secrecy is of the utmost concern, then this is definitely a solution to look into.

Maybe Obama should get this for his blackberry lol.

This is great... So if Obama and the peanut gallery decide to "fix" something else and this so-called fixing entails monitoring phone calls for potential anti-obama talk we can have a way of continuing to exercise our right to free speak/expression. Awesome invention if it works as advertised!

Stopped by their booth and really impressed, and terrified at what happens around the world with GSM hacking

Suck on that ... Patriot Act!

I'm pretty sure that call didn't connect.

lol no kidding...why'd he turn the phone away??

Keep in mind guys, both phones (call placer and receiver BOTH need to be running the software)

I couldn't find a link to try it out on their site.

Good stuff here. I stopped by Cellcrypt's booth at WES and spoke with them about the product for awhile. RIM is supposed to help them get the latency down quite a bit. I noticed the latency when I ws standing next to the person, but not so sure I would have noticed if I couldn't see their mouth moving (kinda like a Kung fu movie). All in all really good product.

Interesting. Their pbx solution appears to be based on Asterisk. I work on that project.

It is a very costly application.

how much does it cost???

tedjohnson

If only someone told Stringer...

The cost is 2,500 British Pounds for an annual license. Obviously not for the average guy walking around with a BB in hand!

RedClay

With a minimum license agreement of 3 years!

wow, looks like you better be sure you really need it if you're going to spending that kind of money for it. Especially since you can only call people with the same software, so to make one phone call the company is at least making $5,000 pounds. I need to get some of there stock.

Perfect for drug lords.

Very cool. I wonder what pricing looks like for multiple lines. They must offer some kind of volume pricing at that pricepoint.

How well does this work from mobile to mobile and mobile to landline?
