Plus combines Certicom's ECC, SSL, and embedded platform expertise to offer a highly efficient security solution designed specifically for wireless environments.
only works if both sides of a WAP conversation (proxy server and WAP phone) have it installed.
The incompatibility between WTLS
and SSL makes the system vulnerable.
RSA BSAFE WTLS
1.0 is designed to provide a complete WTLS-compliant protocol component developers can use to more quickly and easily build security into their WAP-enabled (Wireless Application Protocol) products and applications.
As part of the agreement Lucent will also be able to offer Certicom's security products, such as its WTLS
Plus for WAP implementations, Security Builder cryptographic toolkit, Trustpoint PKI products and Mobile Trust managed certificate service as part of its MiLife Mobile ISP system.
Other features include unique user identification, V110 dial-up connection and 128-bit and WTLS
Under the agreement the companies will embed Diversinet's WTLS
root certificate, which is compliant with the WAP Forum's Wireless Transport Layer Security (WTLS
) specification, into Openwave's UP.Browser microbrowser.
Features will include encryption above the WTLS
protocol level at the application layer to make the system 'wireless provider independent' and an ability for either the telco or the bank/e-commerce provider to locate and administer the WAP server to avoid security risks.
