    and Services Aimed at Securing Highly Sensitive Websites and Applications

    TORONTO, Oct. 22 /CNW/ - Route1 Inc.(TM) (TSX-V:ROI), the trusted

EnterpriseLIVE, is accessible by any PurLINK-enabled device.
    PurLINK, powered by MobiNET(TM), is Route1's PKI-based authentication

service provides unprecedented, high- assurance entitlement and access
controls to an organization's web presence and is positioned to become the
de-facto, trusted standard for secure access to portals, online systems, and

    PurLINK solves the needs of key industries including:

    -   Financial Services: Provides trusted on-line banking through
        multifactor authentication and digital transaction signing. Delivers
        the trusted, high-assurance, online experience demanded by customers.

        to the pervasiveness of identity theft incidents.

    -   Military and Government: Enables the deployment of C4ISR systems, and
        other highly sensitive online applications, across various security
        enclaves while instilling the capability to manage and control access
        & entitlement at a level previously unattainable.

    -   Telecommunication Service Providers: Addresses the market's concern
        regarding privacy regulations and network security, while providing
        an additional revenue stream. Telco providers can host and manage the
        solution, and deliver it in conjunction with their networking
        solutions, to its enterprise, public sector and mid-market accounts.

    -   Web 2.0 Communities: Thwarts the proliferation of fraud and account
        vulnerabilities associated with transaction-based Web 2.0 businesses.
        Protects the community from malicious threats, attacks, and site hi-

    As a customer, the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs recognizes Route1's
potential, leadership, and capabilities to deliver security products meeting
government and military's high assurance requirements. The MobiNET platform is
undergoing rigorous testing by the Dutch Security Agency and, subject to
specific bandwidth and security measures, MobiKEY will be deployed throughout
the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, including its embassies abroad. The
Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs Government of the Netherlands is
currently evaluating PurLINK for the secure delivery of applications such as
Microsoft Outlook Web Access.
    "MobiKEY's two-factor authentication solution has exceeded our criteria
for highly secure, access to our resources and applications," said Jan Flippo,
Chief Information Officer for the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
"Our new partnership and collaboration with Route1 could lead to the growth of
government-specific solutions, based upon their breadth of high assurance
identity and entitlement-based technologies."
    PurLINK is one of the technologies being integrated into the products and
services to be delivered with Giesecke & Devrient (G&D). The
recently-announced partnership between Route1 and G&D will result in, amongst
other things, a portfolio of e-commerce solutions for the enterprise,
financial services industry, and public sector. Leveraging G&D's global brand
strength and presence, the PurLINK-based offering for high-assurance on-line
banking will be delivered on G&D's extensive line of StarSign(R) products.
    "Identity theft is growing to epidemic proportions," said Andrew White,
Route1's President and CEO. "Today's common Internet-connected systems,
running military and government web GUIs, are proven to be full of security
holes. PurLINK mitigates these highly malicious threats, and delivers the
ultimate level of assurance demanded by all levels of enterprise."
