PGP on BlackBerry® device vs. PGP on EncroChat® device
Some facts about PGP BlackBerries versus EncroChat® devices with PGP Encromail. Both devices and services are provided through distributor ECCOM.
To be honest we at ECCOM have put our efforts into BlackBerry® PGP but after doing some in depth research regarding the outcome of the forensic investigation done by our Dutch Government, claiming they have compromised BlackBerry® devices and have been able to decrypt the messages. We have strong evidence to conclude we cannot sell BlackBerry PGP phones to our clients anymore.
The PGP-protocol is as strong as it was before, nothing wrong with that. In The Netherlands we like to say, “een ketting is zo sterk als zijn zwaktste schakel’ which means ‘a chain is only as strong as its weakest link’. For this reason PGP should be applied on the right and hardened device.
EncroChat® is the best of both worlds. One disadvantage is that some providers let’s say 1% have blacklisted PGP email sent from an EncroChat® device which all use the domain name @encromail.ch This means if you buy an EncroChat® it may be your sent PGP messages are not received by just a few recipients in terms of contacts because of the domain block set by the recipients PGP service providers.
When it comes to the encrypted messages on your BlackBerry® device, even though you have cleared all data from the cache and internal memory etc etc . . . it can be compromised with forensic investigation methods that is becoming widespread. An aware user or the presence of memory clearing convenience / comfort – apps won’t make any difference.
Your worst nightmare is very close. It’s in your pocket. That BlackBerry® phone will be compromised it’s just a matter of time. So get your EncroChat® with PGP Encromail today.
