Koscom, or the Korea Securities Computing Corporation, was established by the Korea Exchange and the Ministry of Finance in the late 1970s, and in 2000 it launched SignKorea, which is now one of the country’s major digital certificates authorities. The organization is now developing a new online authentication platform, and has chosen Trustonic as its security partner for its public key infrastructure.

Trustonic’s software will be used to guard the PKI against digital threats on mobile devices, and where possible its Trusted Execution Environment technology will be used to securely store digital certificates for as long as three years. This means that many end users won’t even need to replace their digital certificates before they replace their mobile devices.

In a statement announcing the collaboration, Trustonic asserted that its assistance will help Koscom SignKorea to “enable robust and secure authentication services using PINs, biometrics such as fingerprint, or passwords.”

The deal comes after Trustonic attained Common Criteria certification for its TEE technology earlier this year, and, more recently, after it received FIPS 140-2 certification for its cryptographic library, further burnishing its credibility.
