The Secusmart Security Card is at the heart of all Secusmart solutions, where it is responsible for protecting emails, text messages and voice communications. The miniature computer, which is integrated into a standard micro-SD card, contains the NXP SmartMX P5CT072 crypto-controller with a PKI coprocessor for authentication. An additional high-speed coprocessor encrypts voice communications and data using the 128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). AES is currently considered the most secure and efficient algorithm for the symmetric encryption of data and voice communications. To encrypt information, the smart card enables 340 sextillion keys – in theory, it would take approximately 149 billion years to crack the code created. SecuSUITE for BlackBerry 10 is therefore able to meet all the German government’s requirements for secure mobile telecommunications at the VS-NfD (classified – for official use only) security level.

SecuTABLET provides a solution for secure voice and data communication, available on a commercial Android tablet or smartphone. The product is primarily intended for organizations with high standards for secure mobile communication. SecuTABLET combines ease of use and security in compliance with the German security classification VS-NfD (Classified – For official use only).

The following security features are thus implemented:

  • Storage encryption
  • Transport encryption

  • Secure data transfer between apps

SecuTABLET - Secure Mobile Communication

SecuSUITE for Government encrypts voice and data communications using the 128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). The solution supports the iOS, Android and BlackBerry 10 platforms.

Mobile devices installed with the SecuSUITE app allow users to communicate via an independent and secure infrastructure that is hosted by the client itself. Secusmart recommends using the BlackBerry Enterprise Service to push and manage the SecuSUITE app. In addition to supporting BlackBerry 10, BlackBerry Enterprise Service 12 supports Android and iOS devices.

Hightech - Made in Germany

​SecuTABLET requires a secure IT-infrastructure. For customers who already own a SecuSUITE solution, the SecuTABLET infrastructure integrates into the existing one. The backend infrastructure comprises the following components:

  • VPN Gateway. Cisco ASA and Secunet SINA are supported. The configuration approved by the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) for security classification VS-NfD (Classified – For official use only) requires Secunet SINA VPN concentrators
  • EASE server software
  • Mobile Device Management system (optional)
  • Standard IT components

Business and Personal Apps

SecuTABLET enables users to access both business and personal apps. Both types of apps are made available to the mobile user device via the Ease server.

Business apps

Business apps only process sensitive secure data. Only business apps are permitted to use the VPN tunnel, which provides access to the services of the business backend system. Business apps can be identified by a small padlock on the app icon. 

Personal apps

Personal apps are kept strictly separate from business apps. They can neither access sensitive data from business as nor communicate with business apps. They are also not allowed to use the VPN tunnel.

The objective of the SecuSUITE for Government security solution is to protect mobile communications on a variety of platforms, while meeting the needs of governments and industries working close to governments around the world. To this end, SecuSUITE for Government has taken the tried-and-tested technology found in SecuSUITE for BlackBerry 10 and made it available on multiple platforms. As well as enabling the secure end-to-end encryption of telephone calls, the solution encrypts text messages. To do so, Secusmart uses IP-based mobile data connections such as EDGE, UMTS/HSPA and LTE as well as Wi-Fi, the high security level of which is in line with the NIAP security standard.

All security features make use of the Secusmart Security Card (SSC) as a hardware based cryptographic anchor. The operating system on the Samsung tablets is a standard version of Android with security enhancements. Each app is secured in an individual container.

The solution features:

  • Simple and intuitive operation on a typical Android environment
  • The parallel use of business and personal apps
  • Easy commissioning with no need for specific user training
  • Support for latest off-the-shelf device hardware

SecuSUITE for Government

SecuSUITE for BlackBerry 10 is the first security solution to fulfil the German government’s requirements for a highly secure eavesdropping protection system for smartphones. It protects voice communications, text messages, mobile emails and personal information managers (PIM) containing calendar entries and contacts from electronic eavesdropping. SecuSUITE for BlackBerry 10 is the only solution for encrypting calls and data to have been provisionally approved by the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) at the VS-NfD (classified – for official use only) security level. The high-security solution is available on all latest generation BlackBerry smartphones.

​Secusmart has been supplying German government agencies with SecuSUITE for BlackBerry 10 since 2013. In 2014, the Federal Security Network was extended beyond SecuSUITE for BlackBerry 10 to include eavesdropping protection solutions for telephone switchboards (SecuGATE LV) and teleconferences (SecuBRIDGE) as well as secure desk telephones.
