Layer Security

Layer Security develops secure messaging components for financial applications needing to report to the ATO (e.g. tax, payroll) or send electronic invoices (as defined by the PEPPOL).

Software produced by Layer Security is small, fast and efficient, whilst also being easy to install, configure, manage, and integrate. The technology has been widely embedded into third-party software products and cloud services including payroll, accounting and superannuation applications.

Key areas of expertise include security, privacy, protocols, cryptography, encryption, certificates, key management, and standards relating to large-scale business-to-government (B2G) and business-to-business (B2B) networks.
