BioPKI – Digital Signatures & Fingerprint Technology
This Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) with Serendipity Interactive Ltd based in Glasgow ran from 2005-08.
The project defined a secure method of digital signatures to ensure that documents or other communications can be transmitted securely and received with the knowledge that the sender and the recipient were, in fact, the parties who claimed to send or receive the message respectively (non-repudiation). This project was funded for a period of two years from the West of Scotland KTP Centre in Glasgow.
