Sailfish OS running on Jolla J1 as part of Secure Crypto Box from XXLSec is seen on their website:

We currently supply SCB in various forms, based on customer requirements. SCB is offered as Linux based smartphone, stand alone desktop unit or Tactical Platform device, based on source built kernel and distribution. We do not supply solution on any binary delivered platforms like iOS,Android or Windows Phone.


I start to believe that XXLSec already have ditched SFOS for their own Linux based OS. On, another smartphone like device (referred to as PriveCall 2.0) is seen running something that doesn't look like SFOS, and on the Jolla J1 is absent while the other device is the only shown. Also, if looking at the dates, the news with the Jolla J1 are from second half of 2015 while the other device still appears in recent news.

Disclaimer: I think it's wise to think twice before writing about other companies' customers, but since XXLSec publicly shows obvious photos like the ones on their website (although not mentioning SFOS or Jolla by name), I think it's OK to write about it here.

@tortoisedoc, sure openssl has had its share of bugs and problems but those have always been corrected quickly. And what would you suggest as the transport layer instead, hmm?
