VASCO showcases new products
15 June 2012
VASCO Data Security International has launched the DIGIPASS KEY 202 and CertiID Suite 3.4.3.
DIGIPASS CertiID is VASCO’s PKI-based authentication solution that provides digital signatures for user authentication and transaction security. According to the company this allows financial organisations, enterprises and governments to implement secure leading-edge PKI technology enabling secure transaction and document signing by using PKI credentials.
The new CertiID Suite contains DIGIPASS CertiID Middleware providing two-factor authentication and non-repudiation of transactions and data. The new release contains a secure CD-ROM update solution enabling customers to update the read-only content of the DIGIPASS KEY CD-ROM drive. Updates can be executed by VASCO or the customer through manually or automated downloads. This new feature thus ensures customers of an up-to-date PKI infrastructure without having to replace deployed authentication devices in the field.
VASCO says the CertiID software has been embedded into DIGIPASS KEY 200, DIGIPASS 860 and the new DIGIPASS KEY 202, ensuring a zero footprint and cost-efficient installation.
It adds: “In combination with DIGIPASS KEY 101 with IAS chip, the software suite now supports signature compliance with European law recommendations making the solution suited for eGovernment transactions. The solution is also compliant with the European Citizen Card (CEN 15480), a new standard for identity applications, authentication and electronic signatures in Europe. The standard ensures that a smart card is issued under the authority of a government institution which carries credentials in order to verify identity, act as an Inter-European Union travel document and to facilitate logical access to e-government or local administration services.
