Diversinet Corp. has announced an OEM licensing agreement with VeriSign, Inc. to deliver its suite of mobile tokens and mobile authentication services for distribution by VeriSign with the VeriSign Unified Authentication solution.

By licensing Diversinet's MobiSecure soft token product suite for the VeriSign Unified Authentication solution, VeriSign will provide enterprises, banks, online service providers and retailers with means to provide strong authentication protection to their customers, business partners and employees without deploying additional, dedicated hardware.

The licensed solution will provide customers with another choice when deploying two-factor authentication across their network, by utilizing a mobile phone, PDA or PC as their as online access authenticator instead of a standard hardware token such as smart card, USB and OTP hard tokens.

Diversinet's MobiSecure suite of mobile tokens and mobile authentication services are an OATH (Open AuTHentication) compliant solution, which allows customers to have the flexibility to incorporate One Time Password (OTP) functionality into mobile phones, PDAs and PCs as soft tokens.

The Diversinet MobiSecure suite of mobile tokens and MASC offerings are available on all intelligent mobile device platforms, including Microsoft Windows Mobile, RIM Blackberry, Symbian, Palm and Java-based phones.
