Intrinsic-ID's Saturnus® Secure Cloud Application Protected by Hardware Intrinsic Security™ (PUF) Technology on STMicroelectronics ICs and Oberthur Technologies' USIM Card

Intrinsic-ID's Saturnus® secure cloud application protected by Intrinsic-ID's Hardware Intrinsic Security™ technology (also referred to as Physical Unclonable Function or 'PUF' technology) will be demonstrated running on Oberthur Technologies' USIM Card on the STMicroelectronics ST33 Secure SC300 MCUs at Cartes America, Las Vegas (NV) on April 23-25, 2013.

EINDHOVEN, THE NETHERLANDS--(Marketwired - April 18, 2013) - Intrinsic-ID BV, The Netherlands, announces a SIMcard-based solution for Saturnus® to make access to a secure cloud safe, easy and seamless for users of mobile phones and tablets.

Intrinsic-ID has worked with Oberthur Technologies and STMicroelectronics to integrate Intrinsic-ID's Hardware Intrinsic Security(HIS) as an additional functionality of Oberthur Technologies' ST33- based USIM Card. Both ST and Intrinsic-ID will demonstrate Intrinsic-ID's Saturnus® secure cloud application powered by Oberthur Technologies' USIM Card in a mobile phone at their respective booths at Cartes America.

The shift to a 'Bring Your Own Device' (BYOD) IT paradigm and the rapidly increasing use of public cloud-storage services is pervasive across many businesses, governments and healthcare services, as well as in our personal lives.

But sensitive data including corporate files, medical health records, emails, personal financials and credit-card data, website login credentials, etc. must be protected to avoid substantial business and/or personal losses that might result from being tampered with in the cloud.

To safeguard your cloud-resident data, Intrinsic-ID launched Saturnus®, the SESAMES-award winning secure cloud application that runs on mobile phones, tablets and PCs to protect data by encrypting it at the source and bind the data with the 'electronic fingerprint' of the chips inside the devices.

Saturnus® enables secure data access and sharing, anytime and anywhere.

The underlying HIS security technology of Saturnus® offers the highest level of security. Intrinsic-ID is the undisputed leading supplier of this top-level security IP, also referred to as 'Physical Unclonable Function' (PUF) technology.

"We are delighted to partner with STMicroelectronics and Oberthur Technologies, two recognized world-class companies in their respective lines of business, to serve the fast-growing demand for our Saturnus® secure cloud application," said Pim Tuyls, CEO at Intrinsic-ID. "Our partnership with Oberthur Technologies and STMicroelectronics enables mobile network operators and their corporate customers with a fast-track to deploy a secure cloud service based on Saturnus®."

"We are pleased to have worked closely with Intrinsic-ID and STMicroelectronics in this innovative project. Oberthur Technologies' Secure Elements are the right platform to secure Cloud applications and with the integration of HIS technology in our ST33-based USIM product, Oberthur Technologies enables chip fingerprint, confirming its strong market leadership," said Marc Bertin, CTO at Oberthur Technologies.

"ST is very happy to collaborate with Oberthur and Intrinsic-ID to demonstrate how the ST33 product range enables secure applications for many consumers. Saturnus® will contribute to the drive towards emancipation of security into mobile devices with new simple, and highly secure services," said Laurent Degauque, Embedded Security Business Line Manager at STMicroelectronics.
