AU-SYSTEM SHOWS WAP BROWSER WITH WIRELESS PKI SUPPORT
Mobile Commerce World, London, September 26, 2000 - AU-System, a leading Mobile Internet consultancy, today showed a WAP browser with support for Wireless Public Key Infrastructure (WPKI). The secure browser is the first result of the recently announced co-operation between AU-System and Baltimore Technologies, a global leader in e-security solutions.
AU-System has integrated Baltimore Telepathy wireless e-security products with the AUS WAP Browser, making it ideal for applications such as mobile banking. The security solution follows the recommendations outlined by MeT (Mobile electronic Transactions).
The level of security provided by WPKI makes way for a multitude of applications outside of the banking arena. Secure mobile access to corporate intranets and encrypted transfer of sensitive data are examples of other markets for this technology, comments Christer Björk, Business Unit Manager at AU-System.
The secure browser is used in a demo application, showing a banking solution integrating WAP, Bluetooth and WPKI. The demo consists of a PDA accessing a WAP banking service via a Bluetooth link. The WAP bank offers transactions and other common banking services, with guaranteed security through WPKI. AU-System will demonstrate the application at Mobile Commerce World in London, September 26-28, and at PCIA Global Exchange in Chicago, September 27-29.
