Telecommunications interception has developed into
a major industry in the last two decades. Intelligence
agencies and private organizations within all countries
routinely intercept calls that may yield sensitive political,
military or economic information.
The use of wiretapping has become so widespread, simple
and uncontrolled that you must assume that records of
your private calls end up in the wrong hands. Equipment
for wireless interception of mobile phone calls has
become available at such low prices that it is deployed
frequently even in comparatively small business conflicts.
So using encryption to protect your privacy is the prudent
But protecting your information with strong and trustworthy
encryption has become difficult. "Proprietary"
or "Secret" algorithms of dubious quality,
and encryption that is too weak to protect against modern
computing power are commonplace in the telecommunications
market. These weaknesses are masked by marketing efforts,
suggesting that you need to rely on "the secrecy
of the algorithm" or "government classification"
- certified by the same intelligence agencies that are
actually in charge of telecommunications interception.
Ease of use
The GSM-Crypto 400 is easy to use too.
It has a simple interface using a bright and crisp
touch-screen with large keys and easy to read display,
making it an ideal solution for both less technical
inclined users and those with slight vision impairment.
The included professional quality headset gives you
the option to phone hands free when necessary and
to enhance your privacy while phoning in a public
place. However, unlike other products, the GSM-Crypto 400
does not require the headset for operation.
The GSM-Crypto 400 hardware is based on a standard GSM
equipped phone. So you can buy accessories on the
market at normal price from your normal retailer channels.
Since the GSM-Crypto 400 device is not distinguishable from
the normal hardware it is based on, you will not get
suspicious looks at the airport or border control. You
enjoy your privacy - in private.
No backdoors, no key-escrow. No centralized or operator-owned
key generation, no key registration, no extra security
SIM - just call securely . Provides effective and affordable
protection against both IMSI-catchers and network based
surveillance solutions . Security of the GSM-Crypto 400
can be independently verified with the published source
code. Public, standards-based communication protocols
for verification and development of compatible products.
Encrypted storage system for contacts, messages,
notes and keys with smart folders protects
confidential data against unauthorized access •
hardened WM 6.5 operating system with granular
security management and streamlined, securityoptimized

protects device against outside attacks.
GSM CryptoPhones are the only secure mobile
phones on the market with full source code
published for independent security assessments.
They contain no »proprietary or secret encryption, no backdoors, no key-escrow, no
centralized or operator-owned key generation,
and require no key registration.
