Sagem vectroTEL X8 crypto phone


Shh, keep this on the down-low, but there's a new crypto phone on the scene dubbed the vectroTEL X8 apparently manufactured by Sagem. It goes tri-band GSM/GPRS 900/1800/1900 and features a 240 x 320 pixel, 256k color display, Bluetooth, and 1.3 megapixel camera no self-respecting spy should be without. Clearly, the most important feature, however, is end-to-end call encryption via 1024-bit Diffie Hellman Key exchange and 128-bit AES encryption. Slap in a miniSD card / crypto module (with PIN activation) and you too can make "tamper proof" calls to uh, all the other nefarious peeps with vectroTEL handsets. So get to planning your conspiracy now kid, this game ain't for the shortsighted.

[Thanks, Dave]
