Vodafone To Offer Encrypted SMS

Our paranoid UK readers who rock 128-bit encryption on every file will be happy to know that Vodafone UK will be bringing encryption to text messages. The company recently announced plans to bring an encrypted SMS service to customers. Partnering with Broca, Vodafone will use Broca’s SAMS technology to ensure that all messages are encrypted. No word yet on what kind of encryption will be used.

The service is generally aimed at business-minded individuals who need absolute privacy. Hey, if you worked for Team Xbox and accidentally leaked a new model of the 360, how would you feel? Each text will cost extra and will be an additional service that can be added onto an existing plan.
