The innovative ZRTP Voice-over-IP encryption scheme invented by privacy 
guru Phil Zimmermann is to be used exclusively in the gateway products 
of only one company, UM Labs, the latter has announced.

UM Labs, founded by ex-Borderware man Peter Cox, who is also a long-time 
associate of Zimmermann, has been using ZRTP inside its SIP controller 
gateways since last November, but the new agreement makes the protocol a 
unique feature of UM's products. UM Labs has been using Zimmermann's 
client, Zfone, for three years.

The exact terms of the deal have not been made public, but it is 
understood that ZRTP will now feature as an option on its RC-2100, 
EC-4200 and SC-6600 family if SIP controllers for an indefinite period. 
The agreement does not affect ZRTP's use in non-gateway products, such 
as VoIP clients.

"By providing ZRTP across our entire product range, we are able to 
ensure that all remote VoIP connections are protected with high grade 
security. ZRTP means that we can provide encrypted VoIP connections to 
devices on mobile networks, as well to those on fixed line networks and 
on Wi-Fi connections," said UM Lab's Cox.
