Netherlands invests in encrypted telephony


Linköping, Sweden, May 11, 2009 — The Dutch security authority continues to invest in encrypted telephony and has commissioned development of Sectra’s Tiger system to cover a broader range of Dutch requirements. The order is valued at SEK 15 million.

The Dutch security authority and Sectra entered an agreement as early as 2004 regarding adaptation of the Tiger system for national use in the Netherlands. Today, the Tiger system is used in all Dutch ministries and by the Dutch defense forces. Telephone calls between ministers, secretaries of state, government officials and other key persons are thus protected from eavesdropping.
