DECT (Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications) is a standard for cordless phones. The goal of is to better understand DECT and its security and to create an Open Source implementation of the DECT standard.

Latest news: We are presenting the current state of the project at the 26C3 in Berlin on December 29th. The DECT Forum has already responded to the new research: We very much appreciate the openness with which the DECT manufacturers are pushing towards more security!

We publish information about security issues in the DECT protocol and its various implementations in order to increase the overall system and protocol security.
