Aladdin's eToken Bundled with Veritel's Voice Verification System

Apr 30, 2001, 01:00 ET from Aladdin Knowledge Systems, Inc.

    CHICAGO, April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Aladdin Knowledge Systems
 (Nasdaq:   ALDN), a global leader in the field of Internet content and software
 security, today announced Veritel, a leading provider of biometric voice
 verification software, integrated Aladdin's USB-based eToken with its voice
 verification software offerings.
     As part of Veritel's SDK, eToken is used as a strong layer of security by
 requiring the eToken to be present prior to initiating the voice recognition
 process.  eToken provides VoiceCheck(TM) users with unmatched security through
 a key-sized token with password protection that eliminates the need for costly
 hardware or special readers.  Through the simultaneous use of something the
 user knows, the password, and something the user has, the eToken itself,
 Aladdin's eToken works in tandem with VoiceCheck(TM) to offer the highest
 level of security possible.
     "Veritel's implementation of eToken's strong two-factor authentication
 raises the system's level of security by confirming the identity of the
 licensed VoiceCheck software user," said Leedor Agam, Vice President of
 eBusiness and eToken Solution at Aladdin Knowledge Systems.
     "The Aladdin eToken provides us with a simple and secure way to protect
 our SDK license," said Dan Connors, VP Engineering at Veritel Corporation.
 "The setup is easy and the level of security is better than software-based
 license protection."
 
     About eToken
     eToken, a USB device about the size of a normal house key, is now widely
 accepted as the ultimate device for securing your networks and e-Business
 needs.  It offers a fully portable and cost effective means to authenticate
 users and to digitally sign sensitive business transactions.
     Utilizing state of the art technology, eToken PRO offers advanced
 Smartcard functionality with robust onboard cryptographic processor such as
 1024-bit RSA, 3xDES, SHA1 and MD5.  eToken PRO offers an unmatched level of
 physical and logical protection with its ITSEC LE4 Smartcard chip security
 accreditation.  With its onboard 1024-bit RSA processor, eToken PRO is the
 ideal solution for PKI enabled applications since all sensitive operations and
 signing including PKI key generation, can be done in the secure environment on
 the token itself away from the hostile environment of the PC.
     eToken R2 offers simple yet robust 120bit DESX onboard security
 functionality as its underlying technology.  Offering both 2-factor
 authentication and full support for PKI applications through its ability to
 securely store private keys and digital certificates.
     Both the eToken PRO and the R2 offers enhanced physical features in their
 newly designed one-piece plastic housing, providing an unmatched tamper-
 evident and water-resistant container.  Support for open, non-proprietary
 security standards such as Microsoft CAPI & PKCS11, makes integration with
 security applications quick and smooth.  eToken's innovative "Enterprise"
 solution set also offers an out of the box plug & play connectivity for
 various security clients.  Securing your networks and eBusiness applications
 has never been easy and intuitive.

 integrate with eToken or promote its implementation with streamlined technical
 support and joint sales and marketing opportunities.  Additional information
