will provide itsLinqUs Mobile ID solutionto the Electronic Transactions
Development Agency which aims to develop secure online services nationwide.
ETDA is a public organization, part of the Ministry of Information and
Communication Technology (ICT), Royal Thai Government, Kingdom of Thailand.
The solution will allow mobile users to perform any online transaction on the

simply entering a PIN on their mobiles. Complete development will be followed

Thailand is a fast growing mobile market in South East Asia, with over 40
million mobile Internet users and nearly 60% of online transactions being
conducted via mobiles[3]. But, it is also one of the world's top target for
online banking attacks and Point-of-Sale malware infections[4]. With
Gemalto's solution, the government can now strengthen the country's digital
transformation by enabling diverse services such as online banking,
e-commerce, e-government, enterprise logins, and mobile payments, with an
unrivaled combination of simplicity, mobility, and security.

"ETDA's given mandate from the Ministry of ICT is to increase both the volume
and value of electronic transactions in Thailand while also paying particular
attention to security. So, ETDA has been focusing on the area of electronic
authentication with Gemalto. Their multi-purpose solution will provide
PKI-based strong authentication and legally-binding signatures directly from
users' phones, offering a strong security framework and convenience for all,"
said Ms.Surangkana Wayuparb, Executive Director&CEO of ETDA."With great
support for all networks and phone types, citizens with a mobile
can now access online services from anywhere. This makes mass adoption
easier, and helps us accelerate digital economic growth."

"The Mobile ID deployment puts Thailand in the same league as other leading
nations like Finland, Norway and Iceland in providing such high levels of
security for online services,"
said Michael Au, President, South Asia and Japan at Gemalto."With complete
understanding of end-to-end security technologies in different
industries, for example, banking, telecom and government, we can help them
provide world-class user experience to build a thriving digital economy and
society."
