Together with the Cyber Innovation Hub of the German Armed Forces, stashcat offers a secure communication channel - not only when deployed abroad, but also at home. Secure use on the soldiers' official and private devices is made possible in particular by end-to-end encryption and mobile application management (MAM). In addition to existing communication channels for exchanging information via e-mail, telephone or wireless connection, stashcat has a decisive advantage: Both on the computer in the office and on mobile devices such as smartphones, certain open information can now be passed on in encrypted form - and thus securely. However, the messenger is also suitable as a means of directly exchanging time-critical and relevant information. At the same time, it by no means replaces IT information technology for operations management.
Messenger services have become an indispensable part of everyday life. Both privately and in the working world of the Bundeswehr, they offer an effective way to communicate that everyone can use. The Cyber Innovation Hub of the Bundeswehr (CIHBw), the innovation unit of BWI GmbH, is providing messenger technology for communication in the armed forces as part of an innovation project. Together with stashcat GmbH, the secure messenger BwChat was designed for the Bundeswehr.
Precisely in order to create secure communication for openly classified official messages during the Corona pandemic, the Bundeswehr extended the pilot operation of BwChat at short notice. For the duration of the restrictions associated with COVID-19, employees of the Bundeswehr can use the messenger BwChat via private devices. BwChat can be downloaded from the usual app stores in compliance with data protection and GDPR requirements and enables fast, simple communication in times of COVID-19.
Particularly in the official context within the German Armed Forces and the military, special attention is paid here to data protection and data security. In addition, the following features are a main component of BwChat.
