MetaSolv, Foundry Develop Platform for Service Providers

OSS provider MetaSolv Software Inc. has teamed with Foundry Networks Inc., a maker of equipment including LAN, backbone and applications switches. The companies have created a pre-integrated platform they say supports quicker time-to-market as providers deploy MPLS and Ethernet services.

The joint service covers activation of MPLS-based VPN and VLAN-based services with MetaSolvs IP Service Activator software on the following Foundry product families: NetIron XMR Internet routers; NetIron MLX switching routers; and the NetIron IMR 640 IPv4/IPv6/MPLS router.

3PV Unveils AssureSign Electronic Signature

3PV (Third Party Verification Inc.) has launched an electronic signature called AssureSign that permits anyone with a computer to sign one or more documents securely over the Internet in a matter of minutes using their mouse. No special equipment or software is needed, and the signature is legally binding.

3PV employs a patented process that, among other security features, adds a serial number and a watermark to the signature and then encrypts them with the document.

The sequence yields the only service-based, electronic, handwritten signature on the market today, according to 3PV. The signature also can be matched for authentication in much the same way as a traditional signature, the company said. Should an AssureSign signature ever be copied fraudulently to another document, the watermark and serial number will not change, allowing 3PV to independently identify each signature and document signed. Furthermore, if a document is alleged to have been signed with AssureSign and the watermark and serial number are missing, that signature and document is null and void.
