InterTrust Electronic Commerce Platform

InterTrust Electronic Commerce Platform

Post by jeffery... » Sat, 04 Apr 1998 04:00:00

Hi to all of you,

I recently came across a company called InterTrust (  They claimed to provide the world's first electronic commerce platform.  Their concept of content security sure sounds interesting and I would like to know if anyone have any experience with their solution.  In fact, upon reviewing some of my notes on IBM's crytolope technology, the two look kind of similar in concept.  I would appreciate if anyone can shed some light on InterTrust's technology (other than what is available on the Web) and whether it is a copy of IBM's crytolope.

Thanks in advance!
