Valentia Technologies releases PKI Platform for Healthcare Messaging (Encryptum™)

Valentia Technologies today announced the release of Encryptum™, its PKI platform for integrated e-messaging in the healthcare sector.

Encryptum™ covers various messaging types including email, MMS and SOAP/XML in use within healthcare. It applies to both P2P and M2M messages.

Encryptum™ uses various symmetric and asymmetric encryption algorithms including AES (Rijndeal) & RSA.

Encryptum™ supports advanced XML- based key management and key exchange via XKMS for quick integration over standard networks. It supports all key management- related functionality, including Client and Server Registrations, Location, Key Validation and Key Revocation. Digital Signatures, including message finger printing, is also natively supported for plain messages.

A significant feature of Encryptum™ is its ease of technical implementation and use of administrative interfaces for key generation and management. Encryptum™ also incorporates a ready-made SDK for developers to quickly integrate PKI into their existing or new applications without requiring extensive knowledge of PKI protocol.

Speaking at the launch of Encryptum™ , Dr Ahmed Javad, Chief Operating Officer at Valentia, stated:

“Due to the implementation complexity of existing PKI systems, PKI is underutilized in healthcare messaging at present. However, given the current and predicted growth in healthcare messaging, including areas such as mobile clinical messaging, the requirements for PKI in the healthcare sector are increasing exponentially. Through its ease of technical implementation, Encryptum™ should greatly assist the adoption of PKI in the healthcare sector.”

Valentia already provides healthcare sector organizations with email and other messaging services operating on Valentia's integrated messaging platforms. Users of these services will now also be able to benefit from Encryptum™, which will offer total transparency of encrypted messaging in all cases.
