Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security,
announces that it will support BankID of Norway in creating a nationwide
system for robust electronic authentication and legally-binding digital

eID established by the Norwegian banking industry. The mobile BankID service
works across all networks and phone types, and has already been adopted by
over 270 service providers in Norway, including major banks and numerous
other commercial organizations.

The Valimo Mobile ID solution is the world leading mobile identity
authentication and mobile digital signature software. The addition of Mobile
ID to the existing BankID online services infrastructure delivers new
standards of convenience for Norwegian citizens when using mobile phones and
mobile devices to access banking or to digitally sign transactions. For banks

authentication, of which nearly 40% are using the Mobile ID app.

"With Mobile BankID, mobile phone users are now capable of performing any
banking transaction on the go,"
said Nils Inge Bruberg, strategic product manager for the BankID system. "Many
were already using the certificate scheme that was developed for
electronic banking, but the arrival of Mobile ID has doubled the average
number of transactions per user to 12 per month."

"This project is the very first nationwide Mobile ID solution for online
banking, with over 120 financial institutions connected to the system
," said Tomi Soininen, Senior Vice President of Valimo at Gemalto. "With our
support, BankID is ultimately looking to reach all three million
Norwegians currently using online banking services, and attract more service
providers keen to meet rapidly growing demand for access to secure services
