Gemalto, WAVE Systems, AAMVA

RYE BROOK, NY--(Marketwire - October 19, 2010) -  "There is a global trend toward increasing identity security in both the physical and virtual worlds. On the leading edge of this trend is the move to embedded microprocessor chip technology in identity credentials, documents and tokens to secure online transactions, protect identities and ensure the access control of information systems. At Gemalto, we address these opportunities in our Security Business Unit, and I am charged with managing our security activity in North America for Online Banking and Online Authentication." These are among the observations discussed by Mr. Thomas Flynn, Vice-President, Online Banking and Authentication, Gemalto North America., (Paris: GTO); (ISIN Code: NL0000400653).

Wave Systems recently announced that, its identity service that enables strongly authenticated single sign-on to web services and applications in the cloud, has been certified by the Open Identity Exchange (OIX), the first "trust framework" provider authorized by the US government. A trust framework provides a new way for one site to delegate the identity, security and privacy assurances to another site, thus simplifying a user's interaction with multiple web services.

With the certification of to the US Identity, Credential and Access Management (ICAM) specifications, Wave joins Google, PayPal, Equifax, Verizon and others as the first commercial identity providers authorized to provide login access to websites affiliated with the government such as the National Institute of Health (NIH) and the Library of Congress (LOC).

"As the first 'trust framework' provider for OpenID and Information Cards, OIX is providing a very important service for government agencies and users, and we're pleased by their decision to certify as one of only a handful of trusted identity providers," said Steven Sprague, CEO and President of Wave. "The cellular and cable industries realized more than a decade ago that secure device identity improves security and the user experience. With an installed base of 350 million TPM-equipped PCs, and the proliferation of sites that support OpenID and SAML, offers ease-of-use to users and peace of mind to the CIO."
