Objectsoft deploy e-ntitle.® on Sunderland City Council Trust Services Infrastructure

Objectsoft deploy e-ntitle.® on Sunderland City Council Trust Services Infrastructure (TSI) portal, as the registration business process for establishing a person’s e-identity to U.K. e-Gov levels of assurance.

Objectsoft's e-ntitle.®, developed and operating on open standards, provides e-identities via Liberty Alliance Standards www.projectliberty.org, and the Services Provisioning Markup Language (SPML) to the Sun Microsystems Identity Manager Suite , ActivIdentity Smartcard Management System and the Sunderland City Council TSI Certificate Authority (CA). (May 2007).

“Shared services infrastructure require systems that are capable of underpinning necessary levels of trust between all the parties. This has to involve secure processes for registering and enrolling individuals to required standards and lays the foundations for interoperability with national systems. Using e-ntitle.® I am confident that we can meet local requirements for data exchange across the local service partnership and at the same time act as local registration authority for a national service provider — for example giving practitioners secure access to restricted information, relevant to children’s services locally, while meeting authentication requirements for ContactPoint via Gateway L2 services. ” Conn Crawford, Strategic Projects Officer, Sunderland City Council ICTU.

“Objectsoft are delighted that the implementation of e-ntitle.® is an instrumental part of the Sunderland City Council Identity Management strategy. The e-ntitle.® registration business process offers the real value and efficiencies necessary for the successful implementation of Federated Identity Management solutions for Local and Central Government here in the U.K. ” Ian White, CEO of Objectsoft.

Leading law firm Wragge & Co working with Objectsoft.

Wragge & Co and Objectsoft are engaged in a pilot project designed to test how secure PKI (public key infrastructure) and digital certificates can be applied in a business context. With electronic communication becoming ever more the "norm" the need for secure systems for the transfer of commercially sensitive information is obvious. This is accentuated by the current e-conveyancing consultation published by HM Land Registry designed to lead to an electronic conveyancing system that will require signed conveyancing documents to be in electronic form. (June 2002)

Property partner David Pettingale explains, "As lawyers we need to understand how, in real life, we and our clients will be able to obtain digital credentials and use them to sign documents in electronic form. This is an essential step in the move towards paperless electronic conveyancing and we hope the pilot project we are undertaking with Objectsoft will enable key practical issues to be identified and overcome."


The DTI and tScheme invite Objectsoft to present the research from their 'Notus Key' project to the DTI hosted workshop.

Objectsoft with the knowledge from their 'Notus Key' project delivered a stimulating and very informative keynote speech at the DTI workshop on Electronic Trust Services, in London on May 27th 2002.

The event focused on the market challenges that TSP's (trusted service providers) face today, mainly an immature market place and that most of the technology around today doesn't recognise the practical demands and needs of user organisations.

Objectsoft shared their views and experiences from two years of R&D in electronic trust services ('Notus Key' project). While understanding the technology issues, the Notus Key project focused on the users view point and a solution to overcome the main user challenges. As for the immature market place, a scaleable solution offering will encourage market take-up. (May 2002)

Minister for Science and Innovation visits Objectsoft's 'Notus Key' project.


During a visit to Chesterfield Innovation Centre, Lord Sainsbury the Minister for Science & Innovation at the Office of Science and Technology took time to visit Objectsoft's 'Notus Key' project and see their innovative solution. Lord Sainbury, a leading advocate for the introduction of the UK Electronic Communications Act 2000 (the "ECA") found the project of particular interest.

The project, a leading edge solution to register individuals and organisations for electronic credentials (digital certificates also known as trust services) via the Internet is destined to become an integral part of any trust service provision.

The minister was delighted that a UK company has considered human and legal concerns in a system to ensure that all registrations for electronic credentials meet Government or sector specific standards for authentication of identities. The solution overcomes the onerous and labour intensive aspects of registration. The system stringently checks against preset criteria to verify the applicant's identity "beyond all reasonable doubt". (April 2002)


On March 10th, 2003 the Office of Science and Technology launched a new Foresight Project " Cyber Trust and Crime Prevention " which will look 15-20 years ahead at advances in next generation information technology. In tomorrow.s digital world computer systems will be able to automatically monitor our health, pay our bills and order our groceries".
