Vordel TalkXML uses XKMS to deliver Web Services security

November 16, Dublin, Ireland 2001– Vordel, the Web services security company,
announced today that its TalkXML (tm) product has successfully demonstrated
interoperability with XKMS (XML Key Management Specification).

Vordel’s achievement is significant because it demonstrates the use of digital
certificates in a Web services environment. Security is a critical feature for
the widespread adoption of Web services; XKMS provides an XML-based framework
for digital certificate verification whereby key management tasks are performed
by Internet ‘trust utilities’. This framework ensures that inter-company
transactions, whether conducted in a machine-to-machine or person-operated
environment, can be conducted with confidence across a broad range of enterprise

Chief Technology Officer at Vordel, Mark O’Neill, asserted that “Vordel is a
leader in the adoption of Web Services security frameworks, and our latest
innovation further demonstrates TalkXML’s position as an essential requirement
for Web Services.

“Vordel’s adoption of XKMS is a natural next-step to complement our
interoperability with a wide range of products and protocols in the PKI space,
including Certificate Authorities, Directories, and Smart Cards,” continued O’

Derek O’Carroll, VP of Business Development at Vordel, explained: “XKMS provides
a sound framework for the verification of a user’s digital certificate identity.
Providing this framework for trust will facilitate the provision of
interoperable trusted Web-based products and services that are based on XML. The
ability for different companies to communicate securely over the Internet with
or without human intervention is the key to successful inter-enterprise

“In industries such as the financial services sector, where automation of
business processes is fuelling the demand for inter-enterprise integration,
Vordel is at the forefront of delivering a secure cohesive solution to make this
integration a reality.”
