Tivoli Systems has produced an enhanced public key infrastructure (PKI) solution for organizations using digital certificates and signatures.
SecureWay software also helps organizations meet the interoperable Identrus e-business standard. Identrus has identified Tivoli as a solution provider in enabling organizations to become trusted third parties in e-business transactions among financial institutions and their corporate customers.
HSBC plans to use Tivoli SecureWay Public Key Infrastructure to become Identrus compliant. Headquartered in London, HSBC Holdings is one of the largest banking and financial services organizations in the world.
“Security is a top priority,” said Bill Currie, head of electronic delivery systems at HSBC Holdings. “Doing business on the Internet requires the creation of trusted environments, and the Identrus system along with SecureWay gives us the tools we need.”
“All organizations and financial institutions require that transactions be legally binding,” said Khaja Ahmed, chief technology officer, Identrus. “PKI technologies help financial institutions build secure e-businesses that are trusted by customers and business partners.”
“With Tivoli software already helping the world’s top banks and financial institutions manage their worldwide business, it was a natural next step to provide the security management solutions these firms need in the web-connected world,” said Carl Kessler, general manager of SecureWay. “Helping our customers build trust in e-business by becoming Identrus enabled is a strong enhancement to our award-winning security management and access control portfolio.”
SecureWay will be available in December in English. Headquartered in Austin, Texas, US, Tivoli is an IBM company and IBM plans to package it with WebSphere Standard Edition version 3.5.
