Encrypt your mobile calls? Aye. You’re right!
I immediately started thinking of special black-boxes taped to mobile handsets, but no, that’s not their service at all. In fact it’s all VOIP — that way, they can, I suspect, control everything end-to-end from your handset.
If securing your telephone calls is important to you then do take a look at Cellcrypt’s offering. They’ll give you secure voice calls over 3G, WiFI and GPRS with RSA 2048-bit and AES 256-bit encryption. Nice.
It won’t be much of a surprise to you to find that you can’t download Cellcrypt from their site. You can buy it, but you need to register first to find out how much it costs. Presumably if security is an issue to you, cash isn’t.
So, I haven’t tried it out but it looks pretty usable:
Cellcrypt is on the hunt for venture funds to expand it’s service offering, reports Richard Wray of The Guardian:
Cellcrypt, founded only three years ago, is run by Claes Bergstedt, a former sales head of the British electronic organiser firm Psion. It has been operating in “stealth mode” while it perfects its technology and gains security clearance from the UK and US authorities. Having raised initial financing from Porton Capital, the company, which has only a dozen staff in London and Woking, Surrey, is in talks with investors about raising more cash to launch its sales and marketing efforts.
