Encrypted communications take center stage

Mikael Ricknäs | March 10, 2014
Security has passed cloud services to become the most important IT issue this year in Germany.

Mobile security isn't just about encryption -- access to devices and applications also need to be protected. Alternatives to traditional PIN codes have recently been getting a lot of attention, as Apple and Samsung use fingerprint recognition and LG offers knock codes, a feature lets users knock a pattern on the screen to unlock it.

At Cebit, Datev will put a new spin on an old technology: the smartcard reader. Because mobile OSes are not equipped to support smartcards, the company has developed the mIDentity air card reader, which connects to smartphones and tablets using Bluetooth. Integration with Apple's iPad will be demonstrated at the show, which takes place between March 10 and March 14.
