"VeriSign, Inc. (Nasdaq: VRSN), the leading provider of Internet trust services, along with Nuron LLC, a developer of programmable logic coprocessors, and Penguin Computing Inc., leading provider of reliable Linux-based systems for Internet serving, today announced an agreement to integrate VeriSign's website digital certificates into Penguin Computing's Linux-based servers with Nuron's adaptive computing boards (AcB). Penguin Computing's AcB-equipped Web servers will now provide customers with a one-step, out-of-the-box process to deploy secure e-commerce web sites."

"VeriSign's website digital certificates authenticate intranet, extranet, and e-commerce sites, enabling encrypted transactions and communications between browsers and servers across the Internet. (See related release, "VeriSign Trust Services Integrated Into E-Commerce Offerings of More than 70,000 ISVs, ISPs, ASPs, Web Hosting Companies and Other Leading Providers," dated September 19, 2000.)"

"Under terms of the agreement, Penguin Computing is integrating VeriSign's website digital certificate enrollment module into all Penguin Computing servers equipped with Nuron's accelerator boards. This enables the automatic generation of "digital keys" required to create a website digital certificate. Without this integration, a customer would be required to manually generate certificate keys after installing their Web server software, requiring a multistage process."
