SIM card-based PKI-technology
With DIGIPASS KEY 202, VASCO offers an innovative solution combining SIM card-based PKI-technology with secure USB mass storage. By using a SIM card, VASCO has facilitated the personalization process of the end-user devices. Instead of personalizing every device prior to customer distribution, end-users receive a personalized SIM card. This severely reduces the cost for organizations for the renewal of smart cards and mass deployment of the USB devices. When certificates expire after two years, organizations only need to redistribute a new SIM card to their customer base instead of replacing every authentication device.
Digital certificates from any Certificate Authority (Microsoft, VeriSign, IdenTrust, Entrust…) can be generated and stored on the device. DIGIPASS KEY 202 with its replaceable SIM smart card can address different security requirements in just about any market by inserting the appropriate SIM card.
Secure USB Storage and secure CD-ROM content update
DIGIPASS KEY 202 has three predefined memory partitions:
a partition with CD ROM capability for software installation
an encrypted partition on the fly for secure data storage
a non-secure hard disk partition to store accessory, non-confidential information
DIGIPASS KEY 202 comes with 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 himself through manually or automated downloads.
