Officials from the National Security Agency have warned that new cellular phones with integral digital cameras pose an unacceptable security risk to homeland security. Accordingly, the Air Force has ruled that this type of phone is not authorized for use or possession within any Air Force facility processing classified information without written authorization from the designated approval authority. Civilian employees who bring a camera phone into such a facility without written permission could face federal charges and military members could face federal charges and Uniform Code of Military Justice actions.
