RSA Security and Ericsson Demonstrate Integration of Wired and Wireless PKI at the RSA® Conference in San Francisco

Wireless Leaders Cooperate To Enable Personal Trusted Devices via Bluetooth; RSA Labs Host Bluetooth Security Expert Meeting

RSA Security Inc. (NASDAQ: RSAS), the most trusted name in e-security™, today announced it will demonstrate with Ericsson the first use of digital certificates stored in a mobile phone to authenticate, encrypt and digitally sign online transactions in both the wired and wireless Internet worlds. This demonstration of a critical enabling security technology for the new class of Personal Trusted Devices will take place in RSA Security's Booth (# 801) at the RSA Conference 2001 in San Francisco. Additionally, RSA Labs just hosted the first face-to-face meeting of the Bluetooth security expert group.

As mobile commerce, business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) e-business continue to drive the need for secure public key infrastructure (PKI), it is becoming increasingly necessary for organizations to adopt the use of always available, ubiquitous devices that store digital certificates in a secure, manageable and non-intrusive way.

"RSA Security and Ericsson are introducing a new way to store digital credentials that will help organizations overcome barriers to the widespread adoption of PKI," said Scott Schnell, senior vice president of marketing and corporate development at RSA Security. "Through this collaboration, customers will be able to use the phone as a multipurpose security device - for signatures, authentication, encryption, transaction integrity - both in the wired and wireless world."

"Together with RSA Security, Ericsson is happy to showcase this new way of further utilising the highest possible WAP security connecting the mobile phone to the infrastructure provided by RSA Security," said Bo Albertson, marketing director communications, Ericsson Mobile Communications. "This demonstration is a natural step in the strategy of turning the mobile phone into a personal trusted device allowing for secure transactions based applications such as secure access being shown today."
