Cutting edge mobile security technology tested at BYU-Idaho

The Idaho Business Review reports that a new technology that makes mobile business transactions more secure is being tested at Brigham Young University-Idaho.

The “open-encryption platform”, developed at the Idaho National Laboratory and licensed to Idaho Falls-based RFinity, uses a secure microSD card with a contactless interface designed by international security technology firm Giesecke & Devriet.

Integrating RFinity’s platform with G&D’s chip will make the world’s most reliable and secure identification and transaction system for use with mobile phones, according to a news release.

The open-encryption platform was honored this year by R&D Magazine in its R&D 100 list of “technologically significant products.”
