+ - NSA wants bulletproof smartphone, tablet security ->

Submitted by

coondoggie writes "The National Security Agency, America's high-tech spy agency which also plays a key role in approving hardware and software for use by the Department of Defense, wants to be able to outfit military personnel with commercial smartphones and tablets — but based on a NSA security design.

The forces in the Department of Defense, including the U.S. Army and Air Force, today are piloting several different commercially available smartphones and tablets which the NSA is working to harden and secure, said Debora Plunkett, director of the NSA's information assurance directorate, speaking at the Gartner Security and Risk Management Summit 2011 here today."
