M-commerce involving digital certiﬁcates is proving difﬁcult on pocket phones with limited resources. Several
groups are working to ofﬂoad the processing to a separate
server, and protocols are under discussion to communicate
with such servers if they were available. This paper considers how the server might be implemented in a 3G wire
less network using Virtual Certiﬁcates and Synthetic Certiﬁcates, which can greatly improve the repetitive process
ing of a chain of certiﬁcates.
