Entrust Secure Transaction Platform
Rather than each Web services application having to understand how to encrypt information, the Entrust Privacy Service takes care of the complexity of using cryptographic keys to provide data encryption in a centralized service. This service understands how to encrypt information so that only specific entities (for example, individuals or other computer processes) can access that information.
The same experience in providing digital certificate solutions applied to the Identification Service, is being leveraged to create a flexible, robust, and scalable Privacy Service.
With the availability of the Privacy Service, application developers can access a full range of encryption capabilities with minimal integration effort. Because the Privacy service knows how to find, validate, and apply users' digital certificates for encryption, developers can focus on the business logic of their applications and let the Privacy service focus on the details of data encryption.
For instance, if an enterprise specified a security policy that required that only certain portions of a Web services transaction be encrypted (for example, specific aspects of a SOAP message would be encrypted and the rest left in the clear to make it available for intermediate routing, logging or other activities) the Privacy Service would make it quicker and easier to confirm to this policy.
