French Cryptophony

by msecadm4921

In the field of civil and military cryptography and information security systems, the French defence procurement agency, the DGA, Délégation Générale pour l’Armement), has contracted SAGEM to do a feasibility study and design a next generation cryptophony system.

This new product will replace the ministries’ and armies’ current equipment as of 2007. SAGEM report that the group developed the first ciphering mobile phone in 1997. Not only is the company, it reports, the French army’s sole supplier for secure voice-ciphering terminals, it provides wire and satellite networks for interdepartmental and strategic communications (eg digital cryptophony, ciphering fax, key management system).

SAGEM adds that is a partner in other large-scale European programmes, especially in the realm of air transport security. For example, the ADP (Aéroports de Paris) selected the group to install a biometric access control system in Paris airports.
