VeriSign Trust Network Signs Two New Affiliates

Mountain View, CA-based VeriSign Inc. expanded its global network
of Affiliate Service Providers to include KPN, a telecommunications company in the
Netherlands, and Certisur in Argentina.

The new affiliates join others across the U.S., Britain, France, Japan, South
Africa and Taiwan, leveraging VeriSign’s global infrastructure for delivering
digital certificate
solutions to businesses wishing to engage in secure e-commerce.

Brazil, Paraguay, Chile and the Netherlands can establish a trust services
infrastructure based on VeriSign’s digital certificate services and software,
