Prague, Sept 13 (CTK) - The Czech counter-intelligence service (BIS) has
offered "tax-free money" to the CircleTech private firm for an
encryption system, the daily Mlada fronta Dnes (MfD) writes Monday.
CircleTech co-owner Jiri Satanek succeeded in recording three meetings
with BIS officers secretly, the paper adds.
BIS spokesman Jan Subert told MfD that the service would investigate the
CircleTech is developing and selling programmes for mobile phones that
enable to encrypt SMS text messages and phone calls, which complicates
the work of the police and secrete services.
BIS met the firm's representatives five times in various restaurants in
Prague, MfD says.
BIS officers first offered to Satanek that his firm would supply an
encryption system with "a defect" to the market which would help the
secret service find out the content of encrypted messages.
