Wednesday 16 February 2005 04:03 CET | News

VeriSign and Gemplus International have unveiled a new SIM-based authentication platform for wireless carriers.

The new software aims to provide wireless carriers with a scalable, open standards-based strong authentication program that enables customers to conduct remote transactions securely. The technology utilizes the VeriSign Unified Authentication platform, an integrated product for provisioning and managing two-factor authentication credentials, and Gemplus GemXplore Xpresso Java Card SIMs. It supports authentication options including One Time Password (OTP) and Digital Certificates, stored within the SIM. Other features include an activation service that facilitates technology deployment; a validation server that processes authentication requests before granting access to the corporate intranet or the e-banking service and a remote administration service. The VeriSign and Gemplus SIM-Based Authentication platform is expected to be available in the second half of 2005 in all 3GSM markets.
