Intel Corp. and VeriSign Inc. have partnered to improve wireless security for corporate notebooks based on Intel's upcoming Banias processor via enhanced hardware-software optimizations between the two companies' technologies.

Under the multi-year agreement, VeriSign will optimize its digital certificates and Personal Trust Agent (PTA) for future mobile computing platforms based on Intel's next-generation mobile processor, codenamed Banias. VeriSign's PTA is software that transparently handles digital certificate functions, such as key management and storage.

Further, the collaboration will enable PC OEMs to integrate VeriSign's PTA and digital certificates into Banias processor-based notebook PCs. This integration will provide IT managers with a platform that can be deployed with VeriSign's Public Key Infrastructure services to enable strong authentication, authorization, digital signatures, encryption, and more secure messaging.
