SSP-Litronic and CoreStreet to Deliver Integrated Security Solutions for Department of Defense.

NEW ORLEANS -- Government Customers of Both Companies Show Increase in Interest for Interoperable Solutions

SSP Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq: SSPX), dba SSP-Litronic, a leading provider of identity and information assurance products and services, and CoreStreet, a leading provider of validation solutions for identity management and access control, today announced a partnership that will deliver highly scalable, secure and cost-effective digital certificate validation solutions to the Department of Defense and other government agencies.

The agreement enables interoperability between SSP-Litronic's NetSign(R) Common Access Card (CAC) product and CoreStreet's Real Time Credential Validation Authority (RTC VA). The integrated solution addresses the growing demand for these products in government agencies such as the Department of Defense. CoreStreet's RTC VA is the first and only distributed Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) responder to meet strict Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) compliance. The responder fully complies with the "X.509 Internet Public Key Infrastructure Online Certificate Status Protocol, Request for Comment 2560."

"We look forward to working closely with CoreStreet to deliver an integrated solution that meets the growing government needs for effective validation of digital certificates," said Jim Prohaska, senior vice president of business development, Public Sector for SSP-Litronic. "CoreStreet is the only company to offer a distributed OCSP responder product that meets strict JITC compliance, an appealing aspect for our government customers."

"SSP-Litronic has developed one of the most trusted and well-known names in the industry, and we look forward to working together to offer highly scalable, secure and cost-effective solutions for the Department of Defense and additional government agencies," according to Phil Libin, president of CoreStreet. "A joint offering will provide government agencies with a practical solution for millions of users."

NetSign CAC offers straightforward functionality for managing digital identities and enhancing network security. Personnel with a Common Access Card can digitally sign and encrypt email, securely logon to PCs, applications, and websites, and perform other necessary cryptographic functions. CoreStreet's RTC VA is the industry's most secure, massively scalable and cost-effective OCSP system for validating digital certificates. The RTC VA allows government agencies to offer comprehensive public-key enabled solutions by simplifying the deployment of digital certificates. Together, the combined products will enable the cost-effective validation of digital certificates to tens of millions of users without affecting network bandwidth.
