Short Take: Gemplus teams up with HP in cryptography work

Gemplus Card International will support Hewlett-Packard's International Cryptography Framework (ICF) with various key product developments and the development of a smart card technology-based Policy Activation Token. ICF, a government-approved encryption framework for international data security on the Internet, allows users to select levels of security and encryption algorithms. ICF will use the Policy Activation Tokens to activate these different levels of security and to adapt to current government encryption policies, new encryption algorithms, and changing key-recovery schemes.
