J.P. Morgan has chosen KyberPASS Corp., based in Ottowa, to provide authentication services for the public key infrastructure the bank is building for global operations.

KyberPASS is designed to work with Entrust Technologies' systems, the backbone of the Morgan security system for its dial-up customer connections. Entrust is a division of Nortel Corp. "We were looking for something that provided strong authentication, and KyberPASS has a product that was Entrust-ready that we could plug into our infrastructure," says J.P. Morgan vp Ainsley Rattray. The idea, he says, is to provide information to its clients that's "strongly authenticated and protected from unauthorized disclosure."
