Subject: OASIS Member News - Vordel in world first transmission of securewireless XML using Windows CE

Vordel announces world first for secure wireless XML transactions
using Windows CE on PDA device

Dublin, Ireland - 30 April, 2001- Vordel, leading provider of
solutions for secure business communications, today announced a
technical world first for the wireless transmission of secure XML

By integrating e-security from Baltimore Technologies, Vordel has
successfully developed a secure Windows CE version of its TalkXML
product suite, which allows the transmission of secured XML
information over the GSM network from a hand-held PDA device.

Vordel is a world leader in the development of software products that
enable companies to exploit the commercial opportunities presented by
XML and digital signature technologies. A company can now send and
report data of a sensitive nature, signed and encrypted over a GSM
network using a standard PDA device.

"This development removes the dependence on proprietary software
solutions for hand-held devices by allowing companies to use any
device running the Windows CE wireless operating system," David Ryan,
CEO of Vordel, explained.

"Any organization that has a requirement for mobile reporting of
sensitive data will enjoy significant cost savings using this
solution. The reporting of mission-critical data securely from a
mobile workforce in different locations is of particular relevance to
industries such as aerospace, military, health and utilities."

Microsoft Corp's senior director of marketing for the Embedded and
Appliance Platforms Group, Keith White, agreed. "The ability to
securely exchange data is critical in wireless commerce, and with the
growth in the mobile workforce it is imperative that next-generation
smart devices support this," White said.

"Vordel's TalkXML in combination with Windows CE-based smart devices
will enable embedded developers to develop rich, secure handheld
solutions for these mobile workers."

John Fallon, Director of Wireless at Baltimore Technologies, explained
how Vordel's TalkXML and Baltimore's solutions work together: "Digital
certificates deliver the high level of trust required in mobile
e-business," Fallon said.

"This announcement from Vordel is an innovative application of
Baltimore KeyToolsÔ which extends out the benefits of end-to-end
security based on XML to the wireless world."

Chief Technology Officer at Vordel, Mark O'Neill, spoke about the
company's latest breakthrough. "The Windows CE version of TalkXML
permits a company field representative to complete and encrypt an XML
form that is accessible via a web browser on the PDA device. The data
formats will correspond to any standard guidelines or Schemas and
Document Type Definitions (DTDs), as recommended by different

"Because the information is transmitted using XML, Vordel's wireless
solution is easily integrated with a corporation's legacy back-end
systems," O'Neill concluded.
