The event evaluates new technology that enhances NATO´s joint interoperability and capacity to provide information in a network infrastructure.
Adrián Moure, vice president of Safelayer: "TrustedX and KeyOne technology will be used to establish a global trust framework for the exchange of data between the different NATO Nations and Agencies."
Safelayer, a Spanish company that supplies technology for identity management, secure digital identification, electronic signature and data protection will be taking part in this year´s edition of CWID (Coalition Warrior Interoperability Demonstration), NATO's annual event for presenting and assessing new and emerging technological solutions that can be applied to the Defense Sector.
Safelayer´s demonstrations for NATO's CWID 2006 will take place during the month of June in Lillehammer (Norway), where the Spanish company´s staff will integrate its TrustedX platform and KeyOne solutions with other international systems to conduct interoperability tests. Safelayer has also demonstrated the new TrustedX technology during the Spanish edition of CWID 2006, and will be presenting the results on Monday, 26 June in Madrid.
These demonstrations are held to evaluate new and emerging technologies that aim to improve the Coalition´s joint interoperability and information provision through the use of networked communication information systems.
"The demonstration is based on the Safelayer TrustedX solution, a platform whose main goal is to integrate security functions and develop trust in information and communication systems by means of PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) technology and using the universal XML language," explains Jordi Buch, Product Marketing Manager at Safelayer.
"It is a matter of demonstrating interoperability during access control and trusted and secure information exchanges between heterogeneous systems that reside and are operated in different administrative and security domains," concludes Buch.
"Our presence at this year´s CWID confirms the importance that the project for securing NATO mail, which we initiated in 2004, has had in disseminating our technology," states Adrián Moure, vice president at Safelayer, "we shall now prove that the technology of our TrustedX platform can establish a global trust framework for the exchange of data between the different NATO Nations and Agencies."
