Identiv unveils uTrust MD


Identiv has announced the latest addition to its high-security credential portfolio, uTrust MD Smart Cards. The company says the uTrust MD Smart Card is its first, comprehensive certificate-based public key infrastructure (PKI) credential for Microsoft Minidriver environments.

According to Identiv, uTrust MD Smart Cards provide out-of-the-box, standards-compliant support for computer security applications. Fully compatible with Microsoft’s Smart Card Base CSP — a cryptographic service provider integrated into the Microsoft Windows operating system — the Minidriver-compatible smart cards can support Microsoft-compatible security applications, including Windows Domain Log-On, Virtual Private Network (VPN), Outlook email signing and encryption, secure web access, and Wireless LAN authentication. Compatibility also ensures support for a variety of smart card management systems (CMS) and Certificate Authorities (CA).

“Identiv’s new generation of uTrust MD Smart Cards address a very specific need on the market and simplifies any smart card deployment in Microsoft Windows,” said Stephane Ardiley, Identiv director of Product Management, Credentials and Transponders. “These cards are ideal for IT security departments in small-to-medium size organisations that want to deploy smart cards to protect data on their network as well as employees’ computers.”

The smart cards are recognised by a Minidriver library that must be loaded onto the user’s computer. Installation is available through a standard Windows update or via the installer. Once installed, uTrust MD Smart Cards are immediately functional in the Windows OS environment. uTrust MD Smart Cards are available in a wide range of versions, including dual-interface, contact, contactless, or physical access credentials compatible with various legacy technologies, such as HID Prox, Casi, Indala, MIFARE Classic, MIFARE DESFire and others on request, including Identiv’s uTrust TS Cards for secure physical access control.
