Wave Systems To Demonstrate EMBASSY Trust Suite Services With the Trusted Computing Group Community at the Intel Developer Forum

San Jose, CA – (September 10, 2003) – Wave Systems Corp. (NASDAQ:WAVX, – www.wave.com), a leader in delivering trusted computing applications and services with advanced products, infrastructure and solutions across multiple trusted platforms, today announced its EMBASSY® Trust Suite of applications and services with cross platform interoperability will be demonstrated within the Trusted Computing Group Community exhibition area, Booth 821, at the Intel Developer Forum, September 16-18, at the McEnery Convention Center.

Wave will demonstrate how the EMBASSY Trust Suite delivers trusted computing services compliant with the TCG specifications implemented on a range of industry platforms. The TCG has defined a specification for a semiconductor device known as the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) to serve as a root of trust for this enhanced services platform. The TPM is a single chip turnkey solution, which serves as the secure core for the enhanced services platform. TPMs provide the trusted resources used by the Wave services to extend trusted functions within a PC.

Wave will also be demonstrating a range of trusted applications at Intel and National Semiconductor booths.

“Wave is driving hard to demonstrate an industry-leading portfolio of TPM-enabled business solutions for both client and server applications that bring a new level of value to the personal computer platform,” said Brian Berger, Wave’s senior vice president, global business development. “We are delighted to be a part of the TCG Community at the IDF and also to be demonstrating with industry leaders in other areas around the show floor.”

The Trusted Computing Group (TCG) is a not-for-profit organization formed to develop, define, and promote open standards for hardware-enabled trusted computing and security technologies, including hardware building blocks and software interfaces, across multiple platforms, peripherals and devices. TCG specifications will enable more secure computing environments without compromising functional integrity, privacy, or individual rights. The primary goal is to help users protect their information assets (data, passwords, keys, etc.) from compromise due to external software attack and physical theft.

TCG has adopted the specifications of the Trusted Computing Platform Alliance and will both enhance these specifications and extend the specifications across multiple platforms such as servers, PDAs, and digital phones. In addition, TCG will create TCG software interface specifications to enable broad industry adoption. For more information on TCG, please go to www.trustedcomputinggroup.org.
