BlackBerry with htc and certgate SmartCard microSD

Nuremberg, September 4th 2009: – certgate, the Nuremberg based specialist for mobile and communication security, in cooperation with the informatics centre of the (mutual) savings bank organization SIZ now extends secure mobile business transactions to BlackBerry devices. certgate SmartCard microSD with its built-in cryptographic chip enables Distributed Electronic Signature (DES) with EBICS through a secure SSL connection. The technology had been introduced for Windows Mobile based devices earlier in 2008.
---------------
„certgate SmartCard microSD completes our EBICS product line with an additional solution“, Thomas Krebs, CEO of the SIZ GmbH, annotates. „Mobile yet with the same high security standards that our customers have become familiar with in our established ISO chipcard based systems.”

EBICS transactions with electronic signature over secure SSL connection “on the road”: certgate SmartCard microSD, well-known for their EBICS support on PDAs and smartphones, now brings this technology onto BlackBerry devices. As a result, more decision makers frequently traveling for business can now authorize urgent financial transactions in a secure fashion away from their desks.

“Due to the high security requirements, debiting, transactions, and bond and share orders often needed to wait while executives were traveling”, Dr. Paschalis Papagrigoriou, CEO of certgate, explains. “The capability of authorizing these transactions in a secure way will accelerate business processes and make them more efficient.” certgate SmartCard microSD is compatible with most devices with a microSD, miniSD and SD slot.

Technical Details

The personal key needed for a secure electronic signature is stored on certgate SmartCard microSD. The EBICS remote server connection is SSL-encrypted. Users download all orders ready for signing through a secure connection with their mobile devices. They then select a transaction to be signed, create a valid electronic signature and return the encrypted document. The bank’s EBICS server indicates to the authorized user the number of required signatures and how many have been given.

EBICS and Electronic Signature

EBICS (Electronic Banking Internet Communication Standard) is a standard in German banking business supporting internet-based communication for electronic banking. EBICS transactions provide the basis for transfer of encrypted orders to the bank-specific target system.
