The partnership is intended to assist enterprises that must comply with Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12), FIPS 201-2 and NIST 800-157.
Interecede’s MyID enables enterprises to replace employee passwords with more secure and convenient digital identities on smart cards. This solution then manages the lifecycle of credentials, for example revoking them if a user leaves an organisation or updating them in advance of the credentials expiring. All credential issuance and lifecycle events are recorded into MyID, providing full visibility and audit capabilities.
By integrating Intercede’s mobile identity agent and software development kit (SDK) with Centrify Identity Service’s derived credential, the companies are creating a superior security solution for end-users and allowing mobile devices to be used for secure access to apps, websites and services that require smart card authentication.
For enterprises that need stronger authentication that eliminates passwords, or Federal agencies and other organisations that must comply with HSPD-12, NIST guidance and other security mandates for Smart Card authentication, Centrify’s derived credential solution provides a seamless way to provide mobile access without compromising security.
An Adelaide company that sells software to reduce medical errors in US hospitals suggests Australian health providers use technology to track on-the-job skills to avoid a repeat of the ‘fake doctor’ fiasco.
XapiApps (pronounced zappy apps), which has successfully sold its Learning Experience Builder software to hospitals in Washington DC, Maryland and Nebraska, believes that integrated checks of day-to-day performance can raise a ‘red flag’ to identify untrained or inexperienced medical staff.
XapiApps CEO Nick Stephenson said the case of an untrained man working undetected as a junior doctor for 11 years in NSW hospitals highlighted the problem of current skills compliance systems. “As a nation, Australia depends on importing skilled professionals for its health system,” he said.
“This case demonstrates how it is possible for someone to slip through the cracks unless there is a rigorous, systematic approach to monitoring and measuring how people perform their daily jobs.”

The fund will provide $10 million over the next three years to projects that demonstrate, develop or contribute to the applied research of future mobility technologies. The South Australian Government will award grants to projects that contribute to Adelaide’s Smart City initiative and position South Australia as a competitive test bed for Connected Autonomous Vehicles (CAV).
Cohda Wireless, the world’s leading supplier of Vehicle-to-Vehicle, Vehicle-to-Infrastructure and Vehicle-to-Pedestrian - collectively called V2X - Connected Vehicle solutions, is now developing CAV solutions for carmakers, smart cities and mining. Cohda Wireless’ CAV products focus on solving key outstanding problems for CAV deployments: CAV localisation, CAV sensor fidelity, and CAV system cost.
Cohda Wireless CTO Paul Alexander said Cohda Wireless was in a unique position to tackle these problems. “With a history of connected and autonomous vehicle projects including the Freight Signal Priority trial in NSW and the Jaguar Land Rover Off-Road Connected Convoy, we are deploying cutting edge technology and believe Cohda Wireless will be a major player in CAV globally,” he said.
