iASPEC: Assisting Public Sector to Embrace Key Technologies
The changing economic, social, and environmental landscape is bringing in new challenges for the government sector and the public sector to radically rethink the ways by which public services can be organized and delivered to the citizens.
To build a more engaging community, these government and public sector service providers are under pressure to offer a wide range of services that can be easily accessed through the Internet. In this increasingly networked world of today, online identity management is one of the most important considerations. It aims at protecting the identity and privacy of the citizens while affording them the convenience of online services. Equally important in this online world is our ability to protect the integrity and to prove the authenticity of digital documents that are transmitted on the network.
“To cater to these challenges, iASPEC has developed identity management and digital signature technologies and solutions that are widely adopted in the government, healthcare, and banking sectors,” says Richard Tang, General Manager, iASPEC.
In its 29-year history, iASPEC has been providing innovative software products and high quality consultancy services to its clients.

For example, the company’s identity management and digital signature solutions have found their ways into the following application scenarios:
• The e-Cheque solution perfectly serves the changing landscape of online payment. Protected by digital signature, the e-Cheque rides on the existing cheque clearing infrastructure of the banks. It offers the convenience of online payment with lower cost yet higher security than the conventional Credit Card payment and mobile payment schemes.
• Digital signing of medical records, reports, prescriptions, and drugs registration documents in the healthcare sector.
• Digital signing of messages that are exchanged between computers, IoT, and client devices to form a trusted network of equipment.
• One-time-password to support two-factor authentication of users in the banking, insurance, healthcare, government sectors and gaming industry.
“We aim at building trust on the untrusted Internet”, says Kenman Wong, Director of Technologies at iASPEC. “This has been the key theme in the design of many of our software products”, Wong emphasizes.
“We are looking for system integration partners that can resell and install our products in the ASEAN countries, apart from the already existing network in North America and the Middle East,” adds Tang. The company’s worldwide presence, with offices in Hong Kong, Mainland China, and the United States along with its innovative software products and high quality professional services has earned a huge respect for the company internationally.
