Camtech adds digital certificates
Australian Internet payment gateway company Camtech will offer digital certificate authentication with its services from mid year to "boost consumer confidence". According to Andrew Weller, Camtech's group sales and marketing manager, people are still reluctant to use their credit cards over the Net and this is the main inhibitor to accelerated consumer e-commerce.
Camtech says digital certificate authentication is a key part of "creating a climate of confidence" about e-commerce. As a [self-proclaimed] Australian market leader in payment gateways, Weller says Camtech can "make a difference by rolling out this technology to a large number of merchants".
Digital certificates are a form of encrypted identification issued by an authority (such as a bank) to an individual (such as a credit card holder) along with a password to verify the cardholders identity during an online purchase.
