Russia has created its own secure messenger


The Roselectronics holding of the Rostec State Corporation, together with the Open Mobile Platform company, has developed a secure corporate messenger Hummingbird. It runs on the domestic operating system “Aurora”.

Specifically, Aurora 4.0. The developers claim that the messenger allows you to securely exchange data and minimize the possibility of leaks.

In general, the Hummingbird messenger is part of the complex, which also includes the Hummingbird VPN service and a subscriber specialized module for cryptographic information processing in the form of a microSD card.

In the future, developers want to adapt authentication technology based on biometrics, neural networks and cryptography for Aurora. These options will also appear in Hummingbird.

It is worth noting that Aurora is developed on the basis of the open Sailfish platform from the Finnish Jolla, created by former Nokia employees.
