Bedford, Massachusetts-based RSA Security Inc. used its RSA Conference 2001 to announce updates to its software, as well as partnerships with hardware and software companies.
RSA launched BSafe Cert-C 2.0 here at the security conference this week. The PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) application allows developers to support business-to-business (B-to-B) protocols, including XML (Extensible Markup Language) signing and Online Certificate Status Protocol. The software provides developers with everything needed to enable PKI security in any business, RSA said. Cert-C 2.0 is available immediately. Pricing information depends on the number of seats licensed.
The company also revealed its BSafe Cert-J software, which will offer XML signing functionality and allow Java developers to build PKI authentication into B-to-B applications. End users of the B-to-B application can digitally sign and send information, such as contracts or orders, securely. Cert-J will be available this quarter, the company said in a statement.
RSA also announced BSafe IPSec-C 1.0 software for securing broadband networks. Version 1.0 is a software developer's kit (SDK) designed to enable OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) to develop IPSec (Internet Protocol Security) compliant next-generation wireless and fixed-line networks. IPSec-C 1.0 will be available this quarter.
RSA also announced several partner agreements at the show. JetForm Corp., which makes Web-based electronic-business software has joined RSA's partner program, certifying interoperability between JetForm's FormFlow 99 and RSA's Keon PKI software. Using the two applications together allows for the digital signing of electronic forms and means that the information is secure, RSA said.
RSA also announced that Deloitte & Touche LLP has joined RSA's SecureWorld Consultant/System Integrator Program. RSA will now provide the company's consultants with training and certification, allowing them to install RSA's Keon PKI software at sites throughout the world, RSA said in a statement.
