HELSINKI -- SSH Communications Security, a world-leading developer of managed security middleware, today announced that Siemens Finland has licensed SSH Certifier™. Siemens Finland will issue certificates to be used with the SAP Business Suite service center of The Finnish Defence Forces, providing accurate electronic authentication for all ERP users.

Siemens Finland has signed a service agreement with The Finnish Defence Forces to host SAP Business Suite ERP solution. Under this agreement, Siemens Finland can issue and manage digital certificates with SSH Certifier. SSH Certifier will help ensure that all ERP users are authenticated using the highest level of Certification Authority (CA) and Registration Authority (RA) components available today. The SAP Business Suite solution was first implemented in January 2003 by the Finnish Navy to provide digital certificates for 3500 users.

Electronic personalization of employee smart cards, and enrolment of digital certificates is carried out with SSH Token Master™ software. Additionally, SSH Accession™ desktop software will be integrated to the SAP Client software enabling the smart card based sign-on to other applications.

“SSH Certifier offers The Finnish Defence Forces the highest level of authentication to secure their ERP environment”, said Arto Vainio, CEO of SSH Communications Security Corp. “This will allow Siemens to easily deploy and scale their PKI by using strong, cutting edge authentication technology.”

“IT security creates trust, and SSH Certifier brings strong, customized levels of authentication for various user needs”, said Jukka P Sormunen, Key Account Director of Finnish Defence Forces at Siemens Finland. “Siemens can meet those authentication needs using adaptable security offerings.”
