ChosenSecurity Showcasing Security Solutions Expertise at 2007 RSA Conference

Introduces OCSP Responder to Enable Fast, Automatic Validation of Digital Certificates in Security Infrastructure

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 5, 2007 -- RSA CONFERENCE -- ChosenSecurity, Inc., a leading specialist in identity verification and security services, today announced the availability of OCSP Responder to its North American customers. The product enables fast, automatic validation of deployed digital certificates in a public key infrastructure and offers substantial improvements in efficiency and accuracy over traditional certificate validation methods. ChosenSecurity is demonstrating the product, along with the recently announced Team and Gateway Certificates and its flagship Enterprise ID service, in Booth # 2525.

OCSP Responder automates the use of the Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) in public key infrastructures. It provides large, distributed enterprises with an option to standardize Certificate Revocation Lists (CRL), which track certificates that have been revoked. OCSP Responder is faster than using a CRL, introduces less traffic to the corporate network and is better able to withstand certain types of network attacks.

Steve Pace, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Operations at ChosenSecurity, said: "Large enterprises rely on public key infrastructures to establish and then manage identities of users and computers. Most manage thousands of digital certificates, so expediting this process is crucial to maintaining the highest level of security in an efficient manner. OCSP Responder gives these organizations a powerful solution for preventing access using revoked certificates."

ChosenSecurity, formerly a subsidiary of identity verification leader GeoTrust, has more than 3,500 customers worldwide, including financial institutions, online retailers, government agencies, large manufacturers and universities. The company's software secures network communications; encrypts transactions and data; secures access to applications; and authenticates individuals, documents, businesses and data. Offerings range from public key infrastructure (PKI) solutions to software for managing SmartCards and hardware tokens.

On Tuesday, February 6, ChosenSecurity will host a wine-tasting party for the RSA Conference attendees. The event will take place from 7:00 to 10:00 pm at the Diablo Grande Wine Gallery, located at 669 Mission Street in San Francisco, CA. Stop by Booth # 2525 for more information, or email rsawinetasting@chosensecurity.com to register today.
