What is Mobile StrongBOX?

Mobile StrongBOX is designed to protect your entire phone's data. The application uses a strong public-key crypto-system that is optimized for mobile devices.

Mobile StrongBOX uses strong 256-bit AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) encryption for data and 1024-bit RSA encryption for keys. All cryptographic operations are performed using standard NOKIA libraries to ensure there are no security gaps or backdoors.

Any kind of information can be secured with Mobile StrongBOX. It does not only protect your data but also helps you if you have many things to memorize like passwords and credit card PINs. With Mobile StrongBOX you will not have to worry about these things any more!

Storing passwords, PINs, credit cards info, membership, login credentials etc. is now very easy and safe. SMS-es, MMS-es, files and folders can also be added to strongbox, keeping the hierarchical structure of folders(for example you can encrypt your private photos and videos so no one else can view them). Other developers offer some of these features in 2 or 3 different products, with Mobile StrongBOX you have them all in a single one, all data in a single secure place.

Key features: 256 AES + 1024 RSA, user-friendly interface, fully customizable templates(add/remove/rename/move fields), multiple files/folders import/export in one operation, no export needed to view the files(view them directly from strongbox), secure erasing of imported files ( if user wants to), copy/paste,arrange items however you like with move function, search function, auto-lock, multiple strongboxes, import data from CSV files, backup/restore, trash.

With Mobile StrongBOX you have your private information in your pocket anywhere, ON-THE-GO.

Mobile StrongBOX does not use license keys, so you pay once and use forever!!

Why is Mobile StrongBOX secure?

First of all, because it uses both 256-bit AES (Advanced Encryption Standard - widely used) and 1024-bit RSA.
Second, because of the way it uses these algorithms : the private content is not encrypted with your single password (like many other software do), let me explain how it works. Your password is NOT stored anywhere, it is MD5 encrypted (nor this encrypted value is stored) so even your password is 2-3 chars long ,the actual password is 256-bits long (32 chars) making brute-force attacks useless.
This is what happens when you add data to your strongbox : a session key of 256 bits is generated, using large random numbers (the generation algorithm has a very good dyspersal), every time any data is encrypted. This session key is the actual key used by the AES for encryption of data. This key is also RSA encrypted with 1024-bit public key of the strongbox owner, thus ensureing that it can be decrypted with the PRIVATE KEY of the strongbox owner ONLY !! The PRIVATE and PUBLIC keys are generated (using NOKIA algorithms) when the strongbox is first initialized and they are 256-bit AES encrypted with the MD5-encrypted(hashed) user password.
