Radicchio Member Companies Approach 50 - Eleven More Industry Leaders Join to Promote Wireless E-Commerce

    Eleven more members have joined Radicchio, the global industry initiative promoting security in wireless e-commerce: AU-SYSTEM, BROKAT Infosystems, CMG Finance, Graphium Danmark, Heyde, Netlife, Oberthur, Omnitel, Secunet, Swisskey and Tantau.

    The members will elect the Radicchio Advisory Board at the second members' meeting planned for 16 March in Munich. In the meantime, interim working groups of members are focusing on key issues, including: marketing of PKI; SIM cards/card technology; registration issues in worldwide PKI; the regulatory and legal environment for digital signatures and PKI; and best practices/showcases.

    Several Radicchio members will be giving short presentations during CeBIT, between 10 and 11.30am on Monday 28 February at the Sonera stand (B66) in Hall 25. There will be presentations from 724 Solutions Inc., AU-SYSTEM, BROKAT Infosystems AG, Gemplus, Geoworks Corporation, Giesecke & Devrient GmbH, Heyde AG, Infineon Technologies AG and Netlife AG, Tantau, as well as Sonera SmartTrust.

    "With such a strong and diverse membership, Radicchio is already recognised as the mobile industry voice of PKI. Radicchio will definitely be the driving force for common PKI standards that make transactions over a mobile device secure," said Stefan Engel-Flechsig, Sonera SmartTrust's contact for Radicchio. "Our members recognise that the industry has to work together to reap the full rewards from the mobile commerce revolution."
Promoting PKI based security

    Launched in September 1999 with Sonera SmartTrust, Gemplus and EDS (Electronic Data Systems) as initial members, and with the support of Ericsson, Radicchio was created to enable a dynamic global market for secure wireless e-commerce. As a consortium of the industry's leading wireless e-commerce companies, Radicchio will persuade international organisations and government bodies of the importance of supporting security in global mobile e-commerce and of taking into account the growth potential of mobile e-commerce when drafting new legislation.
Worldwide co-operation and leadership

    Radicchio is well on its way to becoming the worldwide industry voice and authority for PKI enabled secure wireless e-commerce. The members include certification authorities, mobile operators, systems integrators, device manufacturers, software companies, financial institutions, smart card manufacturers and telecom infrastructure companies.

    Radicchio continues to recruit members to support this global initiative. Companies and organisations interested in membership should visit Radicchio's website at www.radicchio.org.
