These are the names of the 17 new cardinals the pope appointed at the consistory

Vatican Gendarmerie installs frequency inhibitors to guarantee confidentiality during conclave

2013-03-08

The 115 cardinals electors will leave Domus Santa Marta twice a day to head to the Sistine Chapel. During that time, they will block access to prevent outside contact with the cardinals.

It's not an easy job. The Gendarmerie coordinates all the work from this office. Still under the gaze of a picture of the Pope emeritus, no detail escapes the Vatican security cameras controlled with this joystick: all entries, St, Peter's Square, the Dome, the gardens or Castel Gandolfo. The cameras can even pick up if someone is trying to sneak into St. Peter's Basilica.

However, they will reinforce their efforts these days, since the responsibility of keeping everyone safe during the conclave rests upon their shoulders.
