Revere Security joins AIM
Revere Security announced that it has joined AIM, the worldwide association for Automatic Identification and Mobility. AIM works to increase the understanding and adoption of Auto ID, RFID and enterprise mobile computing through education, standards, and cooperation with other leading industry associations. For more than 35 years, AIM has served as the industry voice for bar code, RFID, and enterprise mobile computing.
As a member of AIM, Revere Security will join other leading companies who are committed to the growth of automatic identification and mobility solutions through industry standards development, advocacy and the support of a global channel network.
Revere Security is the creator of the Hummingbird cryptographic algorithm — an encryption engine that's small, efficient, affordable and powerful enough to unlock a world of security opportunities in pervasive and ubiquitous computing and a host of critical data applications.
Unlike most cryptographic and security schemes, Hummingbird's encryption was designed from the outset for resource-constrained devices such as passive UHF RFID systems where code space is severely limited and active RFID products where battery life is essential. The secure algorithm helps deliver a multitude of benefits across audiences and emerging technologies like RFID technologies, wireless sensor networks, mesh networks, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, mobile computing, supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and identification cards.
"We applaud Revere Security's commitment to partnering with us in the development of standards and educational materials for Automatic Identification and Mobility technologies. Their participation in AIM is a strong indication of its support of our technologies to ultimately help companies in multiple industries become more competitive, while saving time and money," said Clive Hohberger, AIM Board Chairman.
Revere Security is a privately owned company specializing in cryptographic data security solutions for small, power-constrained chips and devices. Revere Security's solutions rely on a remarkably simple, efficient and powerful algorithm developed by Revere Security Co-founder Eric Smith. The unique algorithm has been tested, analyzed and proven successful through rigorous study by former cryptanalysts from the National Security Agency. Revere Security safeguards solutions in embedded systems, RF communications, sensor technologies, mobile computing and more. The company is headquartered in Dallas.
For more than 35 years, AIM has served as the association and worldwide authority on automatic identification, data collection and networking in a mobile environment. AIM members are providers and users of technologies, systems, and services that capture, manage, and integrate accurate data into larger information systems. Serving members in 43 countries, AIM is dedicated to accelerating the growth and use of Automatic Identification and Mobility technologies and services around the world.
