eSignLive Presents on Electronic Signatures at the 2005 AASHTO Subcommittee on Information Systems (ASIS) Conference

May 15, 2005

Montreal, QC, May 16, 2005 — Silanis, the leading provider of solutions that automate the business approval process, announced today that Tommy Petrogiannis, will present at the upcoming AASHTO Subcommittee on Information Systems (ASIS) Conference in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on May 15-18, 2005.  The session, scheduled for Monday, May 16, 2005 at 10:30AM, is part of the conference’s theme  "Techno Gumbo" and draws upon the idea that in today’s environment, many technologies are combined together to produce the end result.

Approval automation is an integral component of any process automation initiative. Without it, processes will only be partially automated and will still be burdened by the inconvenience and cost of printing to paper whenever a signature is required. Understanding the differences and dependencies between PKI, digital certificates and electronic signatures can be a challenge but is essential to a successful eGovernment strategy.

Public key-enabled applications have become a core part of government processes. As a market leader in developing and delivering public key-enabled solutions, Silanis has helped many government departments bring approvals online and leverage a public key infrastructure. Customers across the state & local and federal government have implemented Silanis’ electronic approval solutions both within and outside of PKI environments. Silanis has government users ranging from departmental implementations through to enterprise-wide implementations, including an enterprise license with the US Army and the Kansas Department of Transportation

“The most common misconception we’ve seen is that a full PKI needs to be in place prior to implementing approval automation processes,” says Tommy Petrogiannis, president of Silanis. “The reality is that depending on the level of risk in a given business process as well as the nature of the process itself, different user authentication methods are appropriate.”

The presentation will outline the benefits and challenges that customers have experienced deploying public key-enabled electronic approval solutions and use real world examples to help illustrate the points made.
