U.S. government, military to get secure Android phones

U.S. officials will be receiving secure Android phones this year with capability of handling classified government documents over cellular networks. People working close with the project said the smartphones will run a modified version of Google’s Android software and span across multiple federal angencies and government contractors.

U.S. soldiers will be the first to receive the secure smartphones and later federal agencies. For the past two years the Army has been testing touchscreen devices at U.S. bases, said Michael McCarthy, a director for the Army’s Brigade Modernization Command, in a phone interview with CNN.

Worry over hackers (or rogue apps) breaking into the commercial version of Android spilling out state secrets is of grave concern — especially with past leaks from WikiLeaks. Soldiers with secure smartphones could pull up digital maps of fellow infantry as well receive important information deemed classified. The lastest version has been completed by government developers and has been authorized for storing classified documents — but not deemed for transmission over cell towers at this time. Such high-level classified material could compromise national security but expected to be ready for transmitting in the next few months.
