G&D Promotes Idea-sharing Among Security Technology Companies

For the fourth year in succession, Giesecke & Devrient (G&D) and other members of the Munich Network – an informal group of technology companies – recently held a Security Forum at the G&D headquarters in Munich. Twelve companies were selected from among a significant number of candidates to present their IT security solutions and applications to an audience of investors and G&D managers. As one of the leading providers of security technologies, G&D wants this event not only to be an opportunity for the global IT security community to meet with potential partners but also a chance for G&D to lay the ground for possible future collaborative ventures.

More and more Internet and IT applications are being adapted for mobile use – on cell phones or on notebook PCs: hence the need for greater security in connection with flexible IT solutions. Demand is growing more than ever for new ideas and approaches capable of efficiently protecting IT systems including mobile phones. The Security Forum provides an effective, informal platform on which companies can present their latest developments and rapidly find cooperation partners.

A total of twelve companies took part in this year’s Security Forum. iCOGNIZE GmbH, for example, is developing innovative personal identification solutions based on Fujitsu hand vein recognition technology for use in access control and timekeeping systems. The Italian company IT Inside presented its MobyTrust platform, specially designed for mobile telephony, which enables the secure transfer of data between users and their banking institutions.

KIWI Security Software GmbH, based in Vienna, provides smart analysis solutions for image and video data, incorporating special algorithms capable of detecting shapes, objects, vehicles and a wide variety of movements. Metrarc Ltd., a spinoff of the Universities of Essex and Kent in the UK, develops trusted computing hardware for use on PCs, servers and mobile phones.

Mobile City is a mobile payment solution developed by the German company of the same name. It allows payments to be made by SMS, by voice call, or via a smart-phone application. NEXPERTS GmbH develops and markets mobile wallet solutions for cell phones, in which debit cards, tickets, keys and loyalty cards can be incorporated. Pockets United GmbH offers a social payments platform to facilitate everyday payment transactions within a private group of participants. This virtual “joint account” can serve as a coffee honesty box in the office or be used by sports clubs to organize their outings.

SecureRF Corporation specializes in public-key security solutions for devices with only a limited amount of processing capacity. The key element of its products is a linear cryptography method. To help in the battle against forgeries, Sijeda Technologies from Austria has developed a process that enables the authenticity of different products to be verified even without the use of a database. And finally, Uniscon universal identity control GmbH presented its ID|GARD solution that enables users to surf the Web and shop online at liberty without leaving any trace of their visits behind.
