E-security vendor, Baltimore Technologies, has become the first such party to support Microsoft Windows 2000 with the launch of its UniCERT public key infrastructure (PKI) technology.

UniCERT 3.5 will become the first PKI to support and enhance all the desktop operating system security features, allowing Microsoft customers a more secure and cost-effective service. Paddy Holahan, executive vice president of marketing at Baltimore Technologies, said in a statement: "For organisations deploying Windows 2000, UniCERT 3.5 provides the highest level of desktop e-security, without the need for additional client software." Earlier this month, the European Commission announced funding for a two-year, £634,000 scheme to break the continuing vendor deadlock over PKI products. The project will attempt to bring together competing PKI technologies for independent testing to establish a single set of standards for Europe.
