Bell ID has announced that its token management software will be used in Research in Motion’s (RIM) secure mobile payment solution.
Bell ID’s token management solution delivers over-the-air lifecycle management of applications, cryptographic keys and any form factor secure element on NFC devices. Additionally, Bell ID’s TSM solution supplies service providers like banks and retailers with the means to securely store and update their credentials and apps on NFC-enabled devices.
Bell ID’s Mobile Token Manager follows global industry standards and ensures future-proof utility with other TSMs and third party NFC services.
RIM will use Bell ID’s Mobile Token Manager Software to implement the necessary framework to monitor the secure delivery and management of mobile NFC services to any NFC-enabled device, including BlackBerry smartphones. Furthermore, because Bell ID’s software is vendor neutral, RIM will be afforded the flexibility to work with any third party provider to manage its global NFC ecosystem.
