Hi all...

I am developing a secure WAP application for e-commerce.
I am facing a problem.....I dont know if any of the available
WAP terminal simulators....have an implementaion of WTLS...they need not
in a sense as they are only simulators.

My questions are:
1. Is there any vendor (Motorola,Ericsson,Phone.com,Nokia....etc.)
   having a secure implementation of WAP (i.e. WTLS) on the WAP
   enabled cell-phones?
2. Is anybody currently implementing WTLS?
3. Are there any e-commerce application being used currently

I dont see how one can develop e-commerce applications using WAP
without making sure that the data on the wireless channel being
"overheard". We can have hardware encryption...but that is vendor 
and bearer technology specific.
