Crypto booster tech for mobile phones

Thursday, 29 January 2004, 12:14 AM EST

Discretix, the Israeli embedded-security specialist, yesterday launched an upgraded version of Cryptocell, its encryption technology for mobile phones.

The technology includes a co-processor, security software and device drivers designed to optimise the delivery of encryption onto resource-constrained mobile phones.

Discretix markets its wares as enabling technology for an emerging range of mobile applications. The technology can be customised for apps such as DRM, over-the-air device management clients, VPN clients, secure storage and device anti-theft products (Secure SIM and IMEI blocking).

Handsets featuring CryptoCell produce a faster response to applications that depend on encryption and/or require secure authentication, for example mobile commerce transactions, Discretix says.
