The Vatican has picked Sun Microsystems to implement secure messaging for connecting the various parts of the Catholic church's bureaucracy.

The Vatican has picked Sun Microsystems to implement secure messaging for connecting the various parts of the Catholic church's bureaucracy, Sun announced Wednesday.

"E-mail is one of the most important IT services we provide at the Holy See," said Sister Judith Zoebelein of the Vatican's Internet office in a statement. "[It] enables our internal communication, facilitating correspondence between our consulates, and aiding our worldwide evangelization efforts," she added.

The just-completed first stage of the project assembled components of Sun's Java Enterprise System, including the Messaging Server and Directory Server, and took two months to roll out.

"The reliability of our Solaris-based platform was key to providing a complete solution to enable the Holy See with the ability to handle high-volume e-mail exchanges," said Mauro Banchero, the managing director of Sun's Italian operations, in an accompanying statement. Next, the Vatican wants to create a new global portal, and centralize its numerous external and intranet sites. Sun said it plans to use Java-based Portal Solution to create online applications for content management, media streaming, e-learning, and collaboration hosted on those sites.
