Secret Connections

  • June 19, 2012

No ordinary memory card, the TrustChip can upgrade any phone to make super-secure encrypted calls and data transfers—which would usually require expensive specialized mobile devices. Making encrypted connections requires the phone on each end to have a TrustChip installed in its memory slot. Apps can then route calls and messages via the chip and its 32-bit encryption processor. The product is aimed at organizations, like security services and banks, that worry about eavesdropping.
