Gemalto, the world’s largest producer of SIM cards, which reportedly had its encryption keys stolen by the NSA and the UK’s GCHQ, says initial investigations show its products are secure.
In a statement, the Dutch firm says:
“Initial conclusions already indicate that Gemalto SIM products (as well as banking cards, passports and other products and platforms) are secure and the Company doesn’t expect to endure a significant financial prejudice.”
It will present the full findings of its investigation on Wednesday at a press conference in Paris. It’s likely to be a tough gig for the company’s executives as they attempt to refute the claims and evidence presented in leaked NSA documents.
