Armour Comms launches AES 256 bit encryption solution SigNet by Armour

SigNet by Armour has been designed for use by organisations, typically in unregulated industries, that require absolute privacy

Armour Comms has launched its AES 256 bit encryption solution, SigNet by Armour. Originally previewed at DSEI 2019, SigNet provides secure voice, high resolution video, messaging, group chat, file attachments and Message Burn (self destructing messages).

SigNet by Armour is an alternative to the company’s flagship product Armour Mobile, developed to suit specific security and operational requirements. 

SigNet provides the same ease of use associated with consumer apps, but with hardened security features, and is available for use on iOS and Android devices as well as Windows 10, Linux and Mac OSX desktops.

SigNet by Armour addresses some specific security requirements and as such will be sold alongside Armour Mobile. It has a range of built-in features ideal for mitigating security threats in an enterprise environment, such as:

  • peer to peer encryption, removing the need for a central key server;
  • files and attachments are kept within the app and therefore remain encrypted at all times, even when stored on the device;
  • no recording or auditability;
  • automatic alert sent to the sender of a message if a screenshot has been taken by the recipient;
  • centralised control of device access so only authorised users can connect to the secure communications service;
  • management of connectivity between users and groups to provide security segregation within the user space.

SigNet uses a peer-to-peer key management system, specifically  a double ratchet algorithm with pre-keys and 3-DH key management to provide confidentiality, integrity, authentication, participant consistency, destination validation, forward secrecy, future/backward secrecy, causality preservation, message unlinkability, message repudiation, participation repudiation, and asynchronicity.

David Holman, Director at Armour Comms stated;

“SigNet by Armour has been designed for use by organisations, typically in unregulated industries, that require absolute privacy, and is based on different technology to our award winning Armour Mobile. For this reason the two product lines will run concurrently. SigNet is already in use by some of our customers, and we are delighted that we are now able to make it generally available.”

Initially SigNet by Armour will be available as a Software as a Service (SaaS) product hosted on Armour’s secure cloud, and later, as an on-premises installation.
