Cryptosmart by Ercom
The only french “Restricted” ANSSI & NATO certified solution, jointly developed with Samsung, to secure end-to-end mobile communications on consumer devices.
When using their smartphone, the most stringent users are concerned about the security and confidentiality of their local data and mobile voice/text messages..
On the other hand, smartphone manufacturers are offering devices that are increasingly easier to use, more and more powerful, and renewed every 12 months.
Cryptosmart is the product of a unique partnership signed with Samsung, a co-development allowing us to provide a government grade security to the latest mass market smartphones/tablets and offer a sovereign service.
The Cryptosmart CyberSIM in the device (tablet/smartphone) ensures strong authentication to allow users to access their encrypted content and that users are authorized to communicate with the Cryptosmart Gateway using the device and access the organization’s internal resources.
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
Voice communications between Cryptosmart devices are encrypted from end to end. Encryption keys are generated/negotiated for each call between Cryptosmart smartcards. Encrypted voice communications use VoIP on 3G, 4G, Wifi and 5G soon.
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 is transmitted in clear mode.
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.
Mobile VPN to the organization
All data communications are encrypted to the organization. Encryption keys are generated/negotiated between Cryptosmart CyberSIM and the gateway. This VPN allows secure access to internal services (email, intranet, apps) and secure access to the Internet through a proxy.
Encrypted calls between the organization
The Intergateway feature allows end-to-end secure voice and SMS communications between different businesses and organizations (Cryptosmart gateways). Key management systems remain independent, ensuring each entity can manage the overall security of their own system.
