GO-Trust SDencrypter MicroSD and Sycret Voice App Puts Mobile Calls, Texts and Emails on Lockdown

MWC2014 and RSA2014 -Today GOTrust Technology Inc. (GO-Trust®) announced that National Institute of Standards Technology (NIST) has awarded the company Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 level 3 certification for their SDencrypter microSD working on Android and many other Operating Systems including Windows and Linux. FIPS 140-certified products are mandatory for US military and US Civil government users protecting sensitive data by encryption. This level of encryption is now available to protect files, voice calls and text messages for most Android users – from government to corporate environments.

“GO-Trust is the only company providing FIPS 140 certified peer to peer communication on smartphones, tablets and other SD card enabled devices,” said Darren Lee, CEO of Go-Trust. “This means companies can have complete control over the mobile environment of their employees with the confidence of military-level security, even with BYOD users.”

Sycret Voice App coupled with the SDencrypter provides military-level security for small groups of individuals and major corporations alike. By inserting the GO-Trust SDencrypter in the microSD slot of a smartphone and downloading the Sycret Voice App from the Google Play store, a user can set up an encryption tunnel that scrambles voice, text and emails with any other Android user who has the same SDencrypter /Sycret Voice configuration. Alternatively, Voice can be tailored to meet the needs of each unique corporate environment.

All encryption operations are computed inside the FIPS-certified SDencrypter microSD with a proprietary chip. A random, unique (for each conversation) encryption key is generated and all the encryption/decryption processing (AES 256) takes place in the SDencrypter chip. Nothing in the encryption cycle is computed in the open on the phone, thereby creating a peer to peer encryption chain. There are no secret keys generated, exchanged or stored on a central server; so there is no information that can be hacked or subpoenaed. Even if the encrypted message was recorded as it was being transmitted and afterwards both phones were stolen or confiscated it would be impossible to reconstruct the conversation (backward security).

Encrypted mobile phones have historically either been purpose-built and expensive or software only solutions with significant security limitations. Sycret Voice is unique; when combined with the SDencrypter it is a robust hardware-based solution that can be retrofitted to most of the popular Android smartphones, including Samsung Galaxy and Note series, HTC , LG and Motorola phones, while still using the existing telecom operator service. If the phone is updated or the operator service changed the SDencrypter can easily be moved to the new phone and the latest Sycret Voice APP downloaded from the Google Play store.

The encrypted conversations use the phone’s data connection service instead of the voice call service. So there are no conventional phone numbers that can be recorded to log the origin, destination or duration of the call. The cost of an encrypted call to anywhere in the world is included in the user’s data plan. Unlimited data means unlimited encrypted calls worldwide.

Sycret Voice and SDencrypter have been adopted by many government and enterprise projects. GO-Trust is now actively looking for distribution partners in the US and Canada.

NIST FIPS 140-2 LEVEL 3

FIPS are U.S. government standards for information technology and computer security. The FIPS program is run by the National Institute of Standards of the USA (NIST) under the US Department of Commerce. NIST FIPS 140 is the cryptography standard program required by the US federal government for protection of sensitive data. The current FIPS version is 140-2.

Obtaining FIPS 140 validation requires a rigorous testing process by an accredited laboratory to ensure the security integrity of the unit requesting certification. The results are then reviewed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), which issues a FIPS 140 validation certificate. GO-Trust FIPS validation number is 2084 and can be viewed here on the NIST website: http://csrc.nist.gov/groups/STM/cmvp/documents/140-1/1401val2014.htm.
