Baltimore Technologies To Provide Security Systems For Saudi Monetary Agency
The Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency (SAMA), the central bank of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, has chosen Baltimore Technologies to provide a comprehensive security solution to enable on-line trusted transactions for the network of Saudi Arabia-based banks. Baltimore UniCERT, the company’s Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) product, will underpin the online payments systems within the banking sector to assure the integrity and authenticity of all transactions. In addition, Baltimore’s PKI technology will be used to create the Root Certificate Authority for the financial services industry within the Kingdom. The system allows SAMA to act as a trusted Certificate Authority (CA) for one of the Gulf Region’s most important banking networks. UniCERT provides SAMA with a complete policy based Digital Certificate Management System for the creation and management of certificate-based digital identities and signatures.
