Qualcomm Government Technologies Extends Software Security with Cryptographic Extension for BREW


SAN DIEGO . — Qualcomm Incorporated (Nasdaq: QCOM), a leading developer and innovator of advanced wireless technologies and data solutions, today announced its Cryptographic Extension for BREW®. The extension provides an advanced cryptographic library to enhance security for wireless applications developed using BREW.

This extension is the only NIST FIPS 140-2 certified cryptographic module available for the BREW solution. BREW developers have always had access to powerful cryptography algorithms and secure loading of signed applications inherit to the BREW solution itself; this extension expands the base platform to include NIST certified algorithm implementations. Additionally, the extension uses advanced libraries from Certicom Corporation to support the full set of Suite B algorithms, including AES and elliptic curve key exchange algorithms.

“The NIST certified extension is available to developers looking to produce applications for the federal government, public safety, first responders and anyone else needing a FIPS 140-2 compliant platform,” said Diane Winchell, senior director of product management for Qualcomm Government Technologies. “We are proud to make such a strong solution available to developers in need of NIST level security.”

Qualcomm Government Technologies leverages Qualcomm’s wireless expertise, innovative technologies and vast industry reach to provide capabilities and services that enable our government customers to realize significant technology gains and excellence in mission performance.
