SINGAPORE--Hong Kong-based Internet security vendor KeyTrend Technology has launched what it claims to be the first Java-based security solution for mobile-commerce, MCom P3.

Popular m-commerce activities include flight booking, stock trading and bill payment.

KeyTrend's new product aims to secure transactions on all Java-enabled mobile phones (such as the Siemens SL45i and Nokia 9210 Communicator) and handheld devices (such as the Compaq iPaq H3850 and HP Jornada 568), using wireless Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) technologies.

PKI technology allows encryption to be used to sign documents and verify identity on the Internet. --Irene Tham, Special to ZDNet News
