Verisign's Digital IDs for Netscape's Navigator 3.0 browser are now available, company officials have announced.
Verisign acts as a trusted third party, issuing Digital IDs that can be used to verify a user's identity in an electronic transaction over the Internet, officials say. It has been beta testing the products since April.
Class 1 Digital IDs are free for a limited time, available at http://www.digitalid.verisign.com/, officials say. Class 2 Digital IDs, which have a higher level of assurance, are US$12 per year.
