Using advanced encryption to protect your privacy of communication

The idea of encryption can be a complex concept to grasp because much of the inner workings are dealt behind-the-scenes. This computing process provides security by converting plain text on a digital device into random characters or codes (a form of cryptography) that can’t be read. Basically, no external party will be able to acquire your information, because to them it will seem to be meaningless. So, all-in-all, advanced encryption is one of the best methods to safeguard all your personal data from getting stolen as it takes a tour across the web.

Getting to know Encryption a bit more!

Having been evolved over centuries from letters on rolls to modern-day computing, this fundamental form of data protection has become extremely vital in today’s times. When a user sends ordinary data, known as ‘plaintext’, it travels as a cluster of characters that are random, known as ‘ciphertext’. Hence, the receiver then utilizes a key to decrypt the information received, and thereafter proceed to viewing the plaintext.

Thinking if a versatile encryption software ever existed? Well, Stratign’s advanced In-built Secure GSM Application (STN-ISG3G) is your answer!

It is created to provide you a shield for phone calls and SMS’s from being eavesdropped. STN-ISG3G proposes unparalleled kind of security due to the point-to-point encryption feature with duplex communication that’s fully secure. The in-built secure GSM software assures a noise-free background and high-quality audio as well.

It can work via the ISG3G server which can be owned by the customer, accomplished and even positioned as per the location based on the customer’s requirement. Moreover, when the data network provides a universal IP address, it mainly functions to provide end-to-end security. As an additional means, the server can as well be granted at a secure location where it can be controlled under Stratign’s arrangements.

Using Stratign’s STN-ISG3G, get to enjoy encrypted voice calls, video messages, file transfers, text messages & group chats, making communication the safest of all. Also, the problem of unexpected data theft can be prevented as this GSM phone application does not comprise of any secure calls that go through 3rd party servers.

Product Features: STN-ISG3G Highlights

Unlike a regular GSM Encryption Software, our in-built & secure GSM Application STN-ISG3G comes packed with these beneficial features as mentioned below.

• ‘Point-to-point’ Encrypted Voice Calls along with HD audio
• Advanced Encryption: End to end
• Only pre-checked & signed applications allowed, un-signed installation of apps is completely disabled
• Fully verified boot: It covers all firmware & OS partitions
• Duplex communication: Fully secure
• Backported security provides regular updates to address new threats (patching).
• Availability of worldwide secure calling without any incurring international call-tariff
• Intuitive & user-friendly interface makes it easy to operate
• Customer can gain full control of the encryption & user database management when communication server will be provided.

In a nutshell, new encryption techniques are constantly being developed. Furthermore, several cyber security experts frequently evaluate encryption protocols to identify weaknesses. Hence, there’s a cooperative & shared effort by Stratign to foster stronger & speedier encryption methods and incorporate them into our secure phone applications.

Cyber Crime V/S Cyber Security: What will you choose?

It’s not very uncommon for young people and teenagers to get involved in cyber-criminal activities at an early age. Without realizing the consequences of their actions, some do it for fun – but guess what, the penalties can unimaginably be severe. Cybercrime is not a victimless crime and is taken tremendously seriously by law enforcement. When minors turn out to be involved in cyber-crime, they often have owned an array of skills that could also be worked to a positive use. For instance, skills in gaming, computer programming, coding, cyber-security or anything related to IT are in fact in high demand and there are several professional careers & opportunities available to anyone with IT talent and an interest in these specific areas.

Let’s get to know the relation between cyber-crime and cyber security.

Cyber-crime is a crime that incorporates the usage of computer devices & the Internet. It can be committed against an individual, a cluster of people or even government and private organizations. Generally, it is intended to hinder someone’s reputation, create physical or mental harm or to gain benefit from it.

Cyber security is a practice to protect computers, programs, networks, personal data and more from unauthorized entree and threats. It’s an activity by which information and various other communication systems are secure and defended against the unauthorized usage, modification or exploitation of the device. In other words, Cyber security is also known as information technology security. It involves the techniques of protecting computers, programs, networks and data from unauthorized availability or attacks that can create damage to them or exploit them in any way for that matter. Hence, cyber security is a vital technical approach to secure systems from these attacks.

How do you differentiate between Cyber Security and Cyber Crime?

There are certain aspects, based on which cyber-crime and cyber security can be differentiated. Here they are:

–   The type of crimes: In cyber security, the kind of crimes take place where a computer software, hardware or network software, is the chief target (such as ransomware, worms, distributed denial of service-based attacks, viruses etc.)
In Cybercrimes, the crimes arrive from where an individual/group of individuals and their data is the main target. Moreover, governments & various entities could be the potential targets of cybercrimes as well (such as cyber-bullying, hate-speech trolling child-trafficking, hate-speech trolling etc.)

–  Victims: Victims in these two fields are different as well. in cyber-crimes, the range of victims is broad. For example, victims can extend from individuals, families, organizations, corporations and governments. Whereas in cyber security, victims are comparatively rather narrow, such as governments and corporations

–  Region of Study: In this case, both the fields are studied in different areas. For Cyber security, It is dealt under computer engineering, information technology and computer science. For instance, coding, networking and engineering strategies are used for turning networks more secure.

Hence, cyber security is all about defending government, organizations & corporate networks, proposing to make it challenging for hackers to discover weaknesses and exploit or threaten them. On the other hand, Cybercrime, tends to emphasize more on individuals & families online. It is highly demanded that the top leaders of an organization or government should invest in the cyber security measures & channels to make it stronger and more impenetrable.
