Intercede has announced collaborations with VMWare and Imagination on two separate, significant projects utilising the group's MyID and MyTAM software.
Intercede said MyID was now available for VMware Workspace ONE and VMware AirWatch to provide US Federal Government employees with secure remote access to mail, browsers and other apps on their mobile devices.
Intercede said: "To access this capability, federal government employees can use existing Personal Identity Verification (PIV) smart cards at a self-service kiosk to authenticate to the system to provision keys and certificates to their mobile devices.
"Users are able to leverage Intercede's MyID technology and mobile software development kit (SDK) through a derived credentials solution for secure mobility, which provides increased mobile credentialing capability in compliance with stringent security standards for strong authentication and mobile working (FIPS 201-2 / Special Publication 800-157).
Intercede also said that it and Imagination were providing a demonstration of the 'Trust Continuum' at BT's Innovation 2017 event.
It said: "The demonstration focuses on how systems-on-chips (SoCs) for home gateway routers can be architected to address the growing security and management challenges presented by the proliferation of Internet of Things (IoT) devices, services and technologies entering the home.
"It is based on a MIPS-based platform which supports multiple isolated Trusted Runtime Environments (TREs) where services, including the network communication standards they rely upon, can be provisioned and managed by the operator.
"This is enabled by the powerful hardware virtualisation capabilities of the MIPS CPU and the security-focused evolution of Intercede's MyTAM client and mobile app, which enables service providers to dynamically created TREs and to deploy trusted applications directly into them."
Chairman and chief executive Richard Parris said: "This is another example of how Intercede's software is forming a vital component of key eco-systems, both now and for future development.
"Systems-on-Chips will be integral to the Internet of Things, particularly in light of the growing management and security issues thrown up by the proliferation of IoT devices, services and technologies entering the home."
