Cryptosmart features, the ultra-secure smartphone

Cryptosmart is the first solution to offer 360° of security, protecting both devices and content, voice and SMS communications, and data exchange. 

Strong authentication

The Cryptosmart smartcard inserted in every device (tablet or smartphone) ensures strong user authentication to allow them access to the device’s encrypted content. This ensures users are authorized to communicate with the Cryptosmart Gateway using the device and access the organization’s internal resources.

Local encryption

The Cryptosmart device is fully encrypted using keys stored in the Cryptosmart smartcard. Its content is only accessible with strong user authentication. Devices cannot be operated if lost or stolen, and their content can be wiped remotely.

End-to-end encrypted calls between mobile devices

Voice communications between Cryptosmart devices are encrypted from end to end. Encryption keys are generated and negotiated for each call between Cryptosmart smartcards. Encrypted voice communications use VoIP on any data network (GPRS, EDGE, UMTS, LTE, Wi-Fi, ADSL, satellite, etc.).

Encrypted-to-clear calls to fixed-line telephones within the organization

Voice communications are encrypted between Cryptosmart devices and the Cryptosmart gateway installed within the organization. From this gateway, calls transit over the corporate network for secured communications with all fixed-line telephones within the organization.

Encrypted-to-clear calls to the national network

Cryptosmart users can call any other device not equipped with the solution. The first part of the communication is encrypted between the Cryptosmart device and the Cryptosmart gateway located within the organization. The second part of the communication is not encrypted. This feature enables secure calls over sensitive networks, e.g. a foreign networks.

Secured SMS

Cryptosmart device users can exchange end-to-end encrypted SMS. Secured SMS do not require a connection to a data network. Encryption keys are generated and negotiated between Cryptosmart smartcards.

Data encryption to the organization

All data communications are encrypted between Cryptosmart devices and the organization. Encryption keys are generated and negotiated between Cryptosmart smartcards and the Cryptosmart gateway. Data encryption allows secure access to internal services (email, intranet, application server). It also provides secure access to the Internet through a proxy.

Encrypted communications between organizations

The Intergateway feature allows end-to-end secure voice and SMS communications between users connected to different Cryptosmart gateways (between different businesses and organizations). Key management systems remain independent, ensuring each business and organization can manage the overall security of their own system.
