LONDON - Deutsche Bank has introduced db-eTrustCard, the first Identrus-based smart card for business-to-business transactions. The bank is one of eight founding members of Identrus, a consortium of about 30 banks that aims to supply a worldwide trust infrastructure for business partners.

The smart card includes a private key, which is used to create a digital signature and a digital certificate from Identrus. The combination of a digital signature and certificate is intended to ensure the secure transmission of information and identification of the sender.
