Setec delivers 800.000 SIM cards

The Finnish smart card and security printing company Setec will deliver 800.000 SIM cards to Kuwaiti telecom operator Wataniya Telecom during 2005.
The 64K PKI SIM card enables secure transactions using a mobile phone. The deal between Setec and Wataniya Telecom is one of the biggest PKI SIM orders in the world.

Wataniya Telecom will upgrade all of its customers’ SIM cards with the new Setec-manufactured SIM cards. As a result of this operation Wataniya Telecom’s customers will have very powerful SIM cards that utilize the public key infrastructure (PKI). The PKI-based SIM cards offer the possibility to use the mobile phone e.g. for secure m-commerce, digital signing and to access net-based services securely. Setec has already delivered the first SIM cards to Kuwait in February and the deliveries will continue through summer 2005.
