Eracom and TimeCertain, LLC Announce Strategic Alliance.

Business Editors/High-Tech Writers

ROSEVILLE, Callif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 10, 2003

TimeCertain, LLC, the company that provides technology that protects digital data authenticity, and Eracom Technologies announced a strategic alliance providing cost-effective, highly scalable, secure trusted local digital timestamping and audit solutions.

TimeCertain's Chronologics(R) TimeServer is secured by Eracom's Hardware Security Module (HSM) ProtectServer Orange, which enables hardware-secured time-stamping operations, based on a local tamper-proof time-source combined with a secure high performance digital signature capability. Available in a Linux platform, a single TimeStamp Server can generate up to 1000 ETSI and RFC 3161 based timestamps per second. Multiple servers can be clustered to provide in excess of 4,000 transactions per second. TimeCertain selected Eracom's PKCS#11 API -- ProtectToolkit C for technology development and integration into its Chronologics TimeServer because of its reliability, advanced security, flexibility and performance.

"A local, secure trusted timestamp provides digital data audit ability, and immunity from content challenge is a key compliance component for enterprises subject to laws such as Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, Gramm-Leach-Bliley and FDA Reg. 21 CFR Part 11. When designing our latest Chronologics TimeServer, we found that Eracom's ProtectServer Orange and ProtectToolkit C met security as well as scalability requirements for our key management, cryptographic acceleration, signing operations and local time source protection," said Steven Teppler, CEO of TimeCertain, LLC.

The combination of the TimeCertain and Eracom Technologies results in a highly secure, scalable, cost-effective solution for business, government and other applications requiring that their digital data be immune from content challenge.
