Diversinet Corp., a specialist in digital certificate technology, announced a strategic agreement with Nobil Information Technology Corp., an electronic commerce supplier to Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce.

Both technology companies are based in Toronto.

Nobil licensed Diversinet's Passport Certificate Server. The system's manageable memory requirements make it "ideal for use in smart cards," said Erik Hagman, Nobil's vice president of gateway services.

In September 1997, Nobil announced an exclusive three-year agreement with Canadian Imperial's merchant card services division to provide secure payment facilities, including the standard SSL and SET protocols.
