RosettaNet Announces the Availability of Digital Certificates; RosettaNet Helps Member Companies Minimize the Challenges of Implementing Secure e-Business with Trading Partners.

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- RosettaNet, the technology industry's leading e-business standards consortium, announced today the availability of RosettaNet digital certificates to help members streamline the digital certificate purchase, implementation, and maintenance processes. Partnering with Identrus(TM), a global provider of trusted identity solutions, RosettaNet offers a single, secure, trusted source for 128-bit, X.509 certificates for security implementations across all e-business applications and messaging standards.

Digital certificates provide the security necessary in e-business transactions to protect companies against fraud and internet eavesdropping through non-repudiation, digital encryption and identity verification. Through this new service, RosettaNet members have access to implementation guidance, technical support, and certificate management services to help track upcoming certificate expirations and streamline the certificate renewal process.

"The procurement and implementation of digital certificates are major pain-points for RosettaNet implementers due to certificate interoperability issues and system down-time caused by expired certificates. RosettaNet's digital certificate offering solves this problem so our members can focus on the important business aspects of RosettaNet standards implementations that will make their supply-chain more effective and competitive," said Paul Tearnen, Vice President of Standards, RosettaNet.

"Procurement of digital certificates is an unfamiliar process for many companies which may complicate and slow down the RosettaNet on-ramping process. At Nokia, we believe that by providing tools and support, RosettaNet can help member companies reduce these burdens in this process, which can often account up-to 20-30% of the time it takes to connect," said Matthias Gehrken, RosettaNet Technical Implementation Manager, Nokia.

"Identrus, is proud to partner with RosettaNet to provide secure, trusted digital certificates to its member companies," said Karen Wendel, CEO of Identrus. "RosettaNet members are among the most sophisticated e-business users in the world, demanding the highest levels of security. Identrus' years of experience providing security and identity management solutions to the worldwide banking industry and U.S. government makes us uniquely qualified to meet and exceed their requirements."

RosettaNet's offering features a single online location to track digital certificates across all e-business applications and trading partners, proactive email notifications that provide quick identification of upcoming certificate expirations, and access to training seminars and global technical support. This digital certificate offering is one of many new services RosettaNet has begun to offer to its membership in an effort to decrease time-to-value and simplify implementation of RosettaNet e-business standards.

RosettaNet digital certificates and management capabilities are available to RosettaNet members through the RosettaNet website at
