IAF To Provide Hack-Proof Smartphones To Its Personnel


IAF is in the process of providing all its 1.75 lakh personnel with phones that are hack proof as they connect only with the Indian Air Force internal network.
All IAF personnel from airmen to officers are being provided these smartphones, which can protect our communication from getting intercepted and also prevents our data from being leaked to hackers who are always on the prowl for classified defense-related information,” an IAF officer said .
The phones are equipped with facilities of video calling and voice calling but they do not have any apps like other general smartphones. “In future, we may develop and provide apps which can be of help for the air warriors like if they need any information immediately about their salary or any other issue,” the officer said. The phones also provide end-to-end connectivity at all times and at all air bases – from the world’s highest battlefield Siachen Glacier to Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
The smartphone sets are being provided to the officers right after their commissioning, where the service number is put in as the last five or six digits of their official mobile number and “can be also be used to establish their identity”.
