The RosettaNet e-business standards consortium is to use technology from Identrus to provide digital identity certificate services to its 500 member companies.
RosettaNet says its consortium members can now use Identrus's digital identity system to streamline the digital certificate purchase, implementation and maintenance processes required for secure e-business transactions.
The digital certificates will be made available through the RosettaNet Web site along with implementation guidance and certificate management services for renewal and partner notification.
Paul Tearnen, vice president of standards, RosettaNet, says member firms often struggle with the implementation of digital certificates in their e-business applications.
"RosettaNet members will now have a reliable, trusted source of digital certificates, capability to manage expirations and renewals, and technical support when needed."
RosettaNet is a non-profit consortium of more than 500 companies charged with promoting the development of Internet-based business-to-business standards.
