The telecommunications company that works with the project of military communications of the Ministry of defence of the United Kingdom, BT plans to use the iPhone 7 as “device of choice” for secret communications, according to TechRepublic. Steve Bunn, the technical manager for the defence of BT Business, advised to modify the iPhone 7 to be able to switch between different operation modes and levels of security, depending on the sensitivity of the information that is to be treated in each call.
In addition to enabling secure communications between staff, also is taking into account the work required to make something useful iPhone to keep secret sensitive information. “Secure storage containers“, which probably refers to some form of hidden or encrypted files and folders, could allow that the secrets of secret missions, valga redundancy, they are stored for later use and could be used for transporting data from one position to another without spreading them through networks.
The Ministry of defence of the United Kingdom prefer 7 iPhone
The project did not use an iPhone since its inception. BT preferred using a Samsung Galaxy Note 4, but that has changed because Bunn says that “much more development and testing have been performed, the Security was not considered sufficient“. IPhone security credentials make it a more viable device. That Yes, for safety reasons, BT did not say what changes would make you the iPhone 7. Another reason to use an iPhone 7 and not any other phone is that the latest smartphone from Apple already is widely used in the Ministry of defence of the United Kingdom for various purposes, which would facilitate the development of more secure versions for computers and users.
This movement of the Ministry of defence of the United Kingdom contrasts with what looks like the last motion of the President of the United States Donald Trump, who is supposed to follow using your Samsung Galaxy S3 despite recommendations. It seems that the United Kingdom is concerned more than you hack that to Trump.
