New generation of Aloaha PDF and Smart Card Tools available from today
Ibbenüren, Germany, 16 July 2007 – Wrocklage Intermedia GmbH, a leading provider of content security, PDF and digital signature software, today announced a new generation of its popular PDF and Smart Card Applications.
The Aloaha PDF Tools such as the very popular Aloaha PDF Suite are based now on a complete new and faster PDF Engine, its own PDF Printer, Printer Port and Print Processor. The new PDF Engine introduces also new embedded commands. Those new commands are now able to customize outgoing emails based on commands embedded into the original document. A small overview of those commands can be seen on http://www.aloaha.com/cache/aloaha-automation-example.pdf
Other major improvements experienced the Aloaha Smart Card Connector. The Aloaha PKCS11 module supports now more APIs to support also very popular Applications such as Lotus Notes. A flash video demonstrating how to use Aloaha in Lotus Notes to sign, encrypt and decrypt emails can be found on http://www.aloaha.com/movies/notes.htm
"Our highly motivated development team is always keen to implement cutting edge technology into our tools.” explained Stefan Engelbert the fast moving Aloaha tools.
Aloaha Smart Card Connector
The Smart Card Connector, including a Microsoft approved CSP (Cryptographic Service Provider) and a PKCS #11, provides native, plug & play security enhancement to Microsoft Windows operating systems and Applications using various Smart Cards such as the German Health Insurance Card, Health Professional Card, Belgium e-ID (Belpic), Swiss GS1, Italian Infocamere, SagemOrga Micardo, CardOS, Sicrypt, and more...
Integration of the Aloaha Card Connector is unbelievably simple and quick. The system is operable after a 2-minute installation process.

Once the CSP is installed, the Aloaha supported Smart Cards become integrated into your Windows environment, providing you with a highly secured, mobile, certificate storage solution.

Here are some examples:
• Email protection (encrypt and sign)
• Office document protection (encrypt and sign)
• File and directories protection (certificate-based EFS)
• Client authenticated communication (SSL)
Aloahas PDF Suite is the best alternative to produce, digitally sign and deliver PDF Documents. Supporting commands embedded into the original documents it has never been that easy to integrate PDF and digital signature support into existing document workflows. Documents can be delivered via SMTP, MAPI, WebDAV and FAX.
Authenticity and integrity of PDF documents are increasingly becoming more important. Contrary to general belief PDF files can easily be modified. Thus digital signatures become more and more important. PDF is a common open format for digital documents.
With the Aloaha PDF Signator this widely used file format can now securely used for official business communication such as electronic invoicing, submitting of tenders or digital signing of contracts.
The Aloaha PDF Signator can sign and timestamp any existing PDF Document. Aloaha does not require special prepared PDF documents or signature fields. Neither does it require any additional 3rd party software installed.
Created signature can be checked and indicated with the free Adobe Reader. To create signature validation protocols it is suggested to use the freeware Aloaha sign!
Image files such as BMP, JPG, TIFF, GIF, etc. will be automatically converted to PDF when opened in Aloaha!
Who has not come across the situation: You complete a PDF form in Acrobat Reader and when it comes to saving your data, nothing happens. Or worse: You close the program and all your data is lost. The reason for this is: Acrobat Reader cannot save any form field data! This is not only time consuming but also very unpleasant.
Aloha PDF Saver eliminates this problem in a very easy way! Once this software solution has been installed, all filled out PDF forms can be saved locally directly to PDF. No need to mention that all forms that have been filled once can be read again with the included data and also altered at a later date or send by email.
Handling is extremely easy. Just open a PDF file, fill in all form fields and save.
Files which exist in image formats such as BMP, TIF, FAX, JPG, GIF, etc can be opened as PDF!
Standard PDF Encryption with owner and/or user passwords used to be the only PDF protection in the past. Unfortunately passwords do not stop somebody of passing the PDF document on to somebody else. Even worse is the fact that PDF passwords can be removed very easy. The owner password for example can be removed in a matter of seconds without even knowing the password.
The Aloaha PDF Crypter solves these PDF limitations. Aloaha encrypts the PDF documents with the public key(s) of the user allowed to read/display the PDF document.
Certificate encrypted documents cannot be passed on to a third person – thus making them the ideal solution for eBook distribution or secure sealing of documents.
Producing of certificate encrypted PDF documents has never been that easy. Make sure that only legit persons are able to open your sensitive documents.
