18 februari 2020
The crypto department at Philips has on several occasions compromised the encryption of devices used for secure communication. This statement is made by Cees Jansen, former top cryptographer at Philips, in the Saturday broadcast of Argos. Jansen tweaked devices that were to be delivered to NATO Ally Turkey. Philips was assigned to do this by the BVD, the Binnenlandse Veiligheidsdienst (the former Dutch intelligence agency) and American intelligence services.
