Identive's Smartag(TM) Crypto Tags Offer Smart Card Security and Functionality in a Versatile Tag Format

(GlobeNewswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) SANTA ANA, Calif. and ISMANING, Germany, Dec. 17, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Identive Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:INVE) (Frankfurt:INV), a provider of solutions and services for the identification, security and RFID industries, today announced its Smartag Crypto tag, a new radio frequency identification (RFID) tag that offers all the functionality and encryption capabilities of a microcontroller smart card in a smaller and more flexible form factor. Smartag Crypto incorporates a full-featured contactless smart card microprocessor with a large memory capacity and cryptographic capabilities, enabling the tag to be used in place of a smart card for a wide range of high-security and high-functionality applications. Smartag Crypto is the newest addition to Identive's Smartag family of high performance RFID products.

"Our new Smartag Crypto tag provides customers with a versatile new option for ID credentials and other high-security applications needing increased processing, memory, or cryptographic capabilities. Just like a smart card, the tag has strong security to safeguard and manage personal information and privileges. Smartag Crypto's small size and large memory make it ideal for traditional, mobile and future secure applications such as payment, network logon, physical access, transportation, digital signatures and authentication to e-health and e-government programs. Whether adhered to a mobile phone or embedded in a wristband or badge, Smartag Crypto also supports the growing trend towards mobile multi-application credentials," stated Dr. Manfred Mueller, COO Identification Products for Identive.

Michael Kober, managing director of Identive's Transponder business unit add, "Identive's proprietary, patented and patent-pending technology as well as advanced manufacturing made it possible to bring Smartag Crypto to market without the use of extra IC packaging or modules, while offering high reliability and durability. Multiple versions of the tag are already available, and early next year we expect to introduce a 'peel and apply,' convertible tag embedded within an ID1-sized card body, which will enable the tag's production in standard card manufacturing and personalization environments." The new Smartag Crypto tag is immediately available as a market-proven sticker form factor based on Identive's tag on metal (tom™) shielding technology, which is ideally suited for adhering to mobile devices. The Smartag Crypto tag is designed to support a range of market-leading contactless smart card ICs, enabling customers to choose the memory size, operating system and capabilities that best suit their application needs. Currently Smartag Crypto is available with NXP Semiconductors´ security-certified SmartMX PKI and Inside Secure's contactless picopass ICs.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
