Announcing the launch of e-Cert File Card, an added service to Hongkong Post e-Cert Services
A. Press Release
The new e-Cert storage medium offers greater durability and user-friendliness
E-Mice Solutions (HK) Limited (E-Mice), the operator of Hongkong Post e-Cert services, today announces the launch of the e-Cert File Card as an alternative e-Cert storage medium to the floppy diskette. The e-Cert File Card is a smart card embedded with an e-Cert. It is user-friendly, more durable and less susceptible to adverse effect arising from fluctuations in humidity and temperature when compared with the floppy diskette, and its embedded e-Cert can be read using the same smart card readers for reading e-Certs embedded in Smart ID Cards.
"For secure online transactions to take off, the usage of e-Cert has to become more convenient and user-friendly," said Mr. Winston Leong, Chairman of E-Mice Group. "The e-Cert File Card offers a more reliable storage medium for the e-Cert, and in a smaller size for convenient safe-keeping."
"We are glad that our outsourced e-Cert operator has come up with this new e-Cert storage medium which is in keeping with the latest chip card technology development. We hope that this new medium can help to encourage the increasing adoption of e-Cert among both individuals and organizations in Hong Kong," said Mr. Dan Choi, Assistant Postmaster General (Business Development) of Hongkong Post.
As the operator of the Hongkong Post e-Cert services, E-Mice will continue to work closely with Hongkong Post and other technology and solution partners to develop value-added services that will further stimulate the usage and applications of the Hongkong Post e-Cert in the near future.
