US aerospace firm Boeing has made a secure smartphone that will destroy its data and render itself inoperable if tampered with.

The phone has been designed with the needs of the "US defence and security communities" in mind, and attempts to satisfy security requirements not met by current devices, according to Boeing.

The phone is what Boeing terms a "sealed device", due to the physical and digital countermeasures designed to protect the phone's hardware from interference.

"The Boeing Black phone is manufactured as a sealed device both with epoxy around the casing and with screws, the heads of which are covered with tamper proof covering to identify attempted disassembly," Boeing states in a filing with the US Federal Communications Commission.

"There are no serviceable parts on Boeing's Black phone, and any attempted servicing or replacing of parts would destroy the product," according to the filing, spotted by community site MyCE. "Any attempt to break open the casing of the device would trigger functions that would delete the data and software contained within the device and make the device inoperable."
