Boeing's defense industry phone tamper-proof
(02-27 14:52)

US aircraft manufacturer Boeing has developed a smartphone for users in defense and homeland security fields, the company said on its web site.
Boeing filed papers this week with the Federal Communications Commission describing the phone, which is called Boeing Black, uses Google's Android system and is made in the US.
“The US defense and security communities demand trusted access to data to accomplish their missions,'' the web site says.
“The Boeing Black smartphone was designed with security and modularity in mind to ensure our customers can use the same smartphone across a range of missions and configurations,'' it adds without specifying if the phone is already on sale.
“The Boeing Black phone is manufactured as a sealed device both with epoxy around the casing and with screws, the heads of which are covered with tamper-proof covering to identify attempted disassembly.''
“Any attempt to break open the casing of the device would trigger functions that would delete the data and software contained within the device and make the device inoperable,'' the filing documents read.
