Oberthur Technologies announced the integration of the Valimo Mobile Authentication Client (VMAC) into its SIM applications portfolio to provide a digital signature solution using Wireless Public Key Infrastructure (WPKI).
This new secure transaction capability responds to a challenge with online transactions since there is no 100% safe mechanism to prevent end users from being misled into giving away critical information. The VMAC application, associated to the WPKI architecture provided by Valimo, ensures that personal data is safely transmitted and stored during the transaction.
End-users can then use their mobile phones as legally accepted signing and authenticating devices. This technology opens a new range of possibilities such as mobile commerce, mobile gaming, mobile voting, remote corporate information access or network access.
The VMAC application by Oberthur Technologies is one of the latest universal mobile signature solutions, and very simple to use: pop-up messages appear on the phone screen whenever a signature is required.
