The importance of mobile access to the Internet has been growing recently. While using such services as mobile banking and VPNs (virtual private networks) the most significant issue is communication safety that means both sides' identity authentication, information confidentiality and data integrity.
MobilePKI is a specialized solution for mobile terminals, destined for cryptographic operations, such as: an electronic signature, data/communication encryption and mobile users' authentication. MobilePKI provides the highest level of security via a SIM card as a data carrier for private/cipher keys available from different mobile phone platforms as well as from a personal computer.
MobilePKI is a unique solution directed to a wide variety of public or private enterprises. Its advantage is customizability in a sense that there are different variants available, which can be adapted further to suit particular functional requirements.
In principle, the mPKI solution consists of the following elements:
• SIM card with an RSA cryptoprocessor
• Applet on a SIM card that performs cryptographic data operations and communicates with the mobile terminal
• With particular variants of the solution other elements of a system are r
