Rostec has Developed a Secure Messenger "Kolibri" (Hummingbird)

The Roselectronics holding together with Open Mobile Platform company has completed the development of a secure corporate messenger "Kolibri".

The solution, designed for devices running the Aurora 4.0 operating system, allows to securely exchange information and minimizes the possibility of information leaks.

The messenger is part of a comprehensive solution that also includes a VPN client "Kolibri" and a subscriber specialized module for cryptographic information processing in microSD card format. The module is built on a domestic element base, supports Russian crypto algorithms and has built-in information security hardware. This eliminates the risk of information leaks when connecting to corporate cloud web services.

As part of the state corporation, the project is being implemented by the Penza Research Electrotechnical Institute (PNIEI) of the Roselectronics holding.

“The messenger uses only Russian trusted solutions, which guarantees the information security of corporate communications. In the future, we plan to adapt the authentication technology developed by PNIEI based on biometrics, neural networks and cryptography for the Aurora OS, as well as supplement Hummingbird products with this option,” said Vyacheslav Funtikov, CEO of PNIEI.
