EZOS licenses RSA BSAFEŽ WTLS-C to secure EzWAP, his platform-independent WAP micro-browser.
BRUSSELS, Belgium November 11, 2000 - EZOS, a service provider active in the field of the mobile I.T. business, today announced that it has signed an agreement with RSA Security to integrate the superior performance and quality cryptographic and certificate management technologies within RSA BSAFE WTLS-C in the next-coming generation of his WAP micro-browser.
Early this year, EZOS has developed EzWAP 1.0, the first platform-independent WAP micro-browser that enables a variety of computing systems to access the mobile Internet environment such as: mobile devices (Pocket PCs, PC companions), embedded systems and PCs running Microsoft Windows 95/98, Windows NT, Windows 2000 or Windows CE. Thanks to its modular design, EzWAP can be integrated into virtually any appliance, regardless of its operating system and only requires a minimum amount of software adaptation to be made.
" WTLS (Wireless Transport Layer Security) is the security standard within WAP designed for securing communications and transactions over wireless networks" states Benoit Huon - Research & Development Manager at EZOS. M-commerce (i.e. mobile commerce) is set to explode, but it clearly requires - as a minimum - top quality cryptographic and certificate management technologies. Devices fitted with our next-coming version of EzWAP, utilizing RSA BSAFE WTLS-C, will be ready for a variety of secured services, such as banking and trading services he adds.
As a provider of services and solutions for mobile technologies, EZOS is exploring innovative ways of working closely with equipment manufacturers. "Our aim is to encourage wider dissemination of WAP technology which is currently only available for a very limited number of devices. We want to throw wide open the doors into the WAP universe to any and every platform in order to provide access to, and facilitate the development of, services using this protocol", explains Jean-Claude Streel, Business Development Manager at EZOS.
RSA Security has always been a leader in both wired and wireless security through our involvement in different organizations like WAP, PKCS, IEEE, CDPD, and more. RSA BSAFE WTLS-C contains complete high performance client and server implementations of WTLS including all three levels of authentication. RSA fully supports EZOS in the integration of WTLS in order to enable a whole series of applications that are out there waiting for end to end secured mobile transactions states Yves De Smet, Sales Director EMEA Northern Region OEM and Strategic Alliances.
