Certicom has been developing innovative approaches to security for almost 20 years. We were the first company to introduce Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) to accredited standards organizations and we have patented methods for efficient implementations of ECC.
Our portfolio of over 450 individual patents and patents pending includes coverage on hardware and software implementations of highly secure cryptographic operations, protocols for encryption, digital signature, key exchange, and public key infrastructure.
This portfolio is the foundation for Certicom's Intellectual Property (IP) and Security Builder® toolkit businesses, which provide licenses for developers to use these technologies. Much of the patent portfolio is in practical use by over 300 licensees of Certicom security products, enabling our clients to rapidly deploy highly secure products.
Our ongoing commitment to research and innovation regarding the implementation of ECC will help us to grow our portfolio and maintain our position as a security leader.
