Safelayer Secure Communications says it has consolidated its strategic alliance with Indra as part of its plans for international expansion.
The companies are currently working together to speed up deployments of their Citizen eID and ePassport solutions in Latin America.
Safelayer says that with more than 10 years’ experience in the security market its international expansion is in full swing. As part of its strategy, the company is collaborating with consulting and integration firms to ensure the integration and interoperability of its security products for national and international clients.
Safelayer’s PKI technology is being used in the Spanish National Electronic Identity Card (DNIe). Headed by Indra, this project involves more than 40 million citizens, for which 14 million eID cards have already been issued. “Citizen identification infrastructures are strategic for government administrations,” says Francisco Jordán, CEO and cofounder, Safelayer. "Furthermore, the next generation of security standards in which Safelayer is working will give the eIDs the capability for secure identification over the Internet and personal data protection using cryptographic privacy systems and advanced electronic signature.”
Safelayer is also working to introduce new advances in its solutions for citizen identification and first and second generation ePassports (ICAO BAC and EAC ePassports). The company claims it was the first to announce the technology for setting up the Single Point of Contact (SPOC) service, a critical component of the security infrastructure for deploying the new ePassports in Europe and around the world, facilitating the interconnection of national PKIs.
