At the MWC 2014, Silent Circle and Geeksphone corporations have demonstrated the most protected smartphones from wiretapping, called Blackphone.
The first phones were sold in late June. The super protected smartphone for $ 630, with fairly low characteristics for its price turned out to be unable to protect its owner from wiretapping.
At the DEF CON 22 Hacking Conference on computer safety, called BlackHat that brings together a variety of people interested in information security, the participant of @TeamAndIRC Justin Case could gain root access and enable ADB on the device in 5 minutes after obtaining root on smartphone, one can install any software remotely. Thus, Blackphone hacking is not a particular problem for security services at the moment.
The Blackphone smartphone is based on a modified version of Android called PrivatOS and with a set of qualitative utilities and applications of the Silent Circle Company (an encrypted communications firm providing secure multiplatform communication services for mobile devices, desktop and email), which is known for the achievements in information security.
For example, the Silent Phone program, using peer-to-peer VoIP, gives the chance to make the calls protected from the wiretap. Such program as Silent Text is capable will allow to send the super protected messages, and Silent Contacts can replace a standard application of contacts with the purpose to keep contacts data.
It should be mentioned that Silent Circle offered its services to both Android and iPhone users for a monthly payment, but Blackphone buyers will be able to use all services free for two years from the moment of purchase.
