Curl Corporation and NTT Software announce joint development and distribution agreement.

Curl Corporation, developers of the industry's first rich client software suite to deliver Web-distributed enterprise applications, has announced the joint development and release of CipherCraft/Curl in partnership with NTT Software, which will allow greater improvement of security features within development environments. The Web information developed on the Curl platform can be ciphered, preventing client data or telecommunication data from being tapped or altered. With the incorporation of the client authentication and access control features, it will allow each user to prevent content from being disguised or controlled.

NTT Software will distribute CipherCraft/Curl through both direct marketing activities as well as distributors in cooperation with Curl Asia Pacific Corporation, the exclusive sales agent of Curl products in the Japanese and Korean markets. Sales activities will also be targeted to industries such as system integrators, who focus on object-oriented development, the ASP service industry and package software vendors.

"This partnership with NTT Software further establishes Curl as a significant player in the application development market within Asia," said Chris Lesar, vice president of marketing and business development for Curl Corporation. "Additionally, the solution has applicability in all geographies, including North America and Europe, where applications demanding advanced security features are required. The co-development and availability of CipherCraft/Curl gives developers and partners the most secure environment for content management."

CipherCraft is a cipher engine that supports the cipher algorithm Camellia and PSEC-KEM. At the end of February, 2003, the EU (European Union) selected Camellia and PSEC-KEM as the recommended cryptographic primitives. CipherCraft, the first cipher engine in the industry, was adopted for using Camellia, the Japan origin cipher algorithm that contains the maximum level of security and efficiency in the world. In addition to Camellia and PSEC-KEM, CipherCraft is also capable of adjusting multiple ciphers such as AES and 3-DES.
