New Identity Credential in Cloud Lets Mobile Devices Securely Authenticate Identity and Apply Digital Signatures from Any Internet Connection

SAFE-BioPharma has introduced a new, globally portable digital identity credential that allows any computer including tablets, smart phones and other mobile devices to assert a digital identity and to securely apply high assurance digital signatures to electronic documents.

Unlike other SAFE-BioPharma identity credentials, the SAFE-BioPharma® Mobile credential is stored in a secure hardware module in the cloud and can be accessed wherever there is Internet connectivity.

The cost of SAFE-BioPharma Mobile credentials is about one-half that of token-based credentials. There are no unique hardware tokens to manage, no drivers to install or maintain, and a single credential can be accessed by multiple devices.

“We developed SAFE-BioPharma Mobile to support industry’s embrace of Internet-based global collaboration. It’s being incorporated into use for clinical study collaboration, adverse event reporting, authentication into portals and applications, eTMFs, regulatory document management systems, and eSampling,” said Mollie Shields-Uehling, president and CEO, SAFE-BioPharma Association.

Like all cyber identities based on the SAFE-BioPharma standard, SAFE-BioPharma Mobile identities will be trusted by the FDA and other US federal government agencies. The new credential is a single, universal cyber-identity. It eliminates the need to maintain multiple usernames and passwords and/or multiple digital identities.

In the coming months, SAFE-BioPharma Mobile credentials will be deployed to hundreds of thousands of US prescribers to help them meet DEA requirements for ePrescribing controlled substances.

Application Programming Interfaces to integrate SAFE-BioPharma Mobile authentication and signing functionality into existing and future biopharmaceutical and healthcare applications are available by contacting [email protected].

Adobe plug-in software that allows digital signing by people using SAFE-BioPharma Mobile cloud-based credentials with their PCs can be downloaded from http://www.pdfcloudsign.com/index.html. Documentation and FAQs also are available at that address.

Information about obtaining SAFE-BioPharma Mobile is available at http://www.safe-biopharma.org/SAFEmobile.htm.
