What is Identity Based Encryption (IBE)?

Voltage Security uses a breakthrough approach in cryptography known as Identity-Based Encryption (IBE). IBE enables a simple identity, such as an email address, to be used as a public key to facilitate secure communication with any recipient. IBE does not require end-user certificates and thereby eliminates the usability and management problems inherent in traditional PKI-based communication solutions.
