DIGIPASS Key 860 is a hybrid end-user authentication device offering strong authentication. The use of OTP and PKI-technology are combined on a single device. DIGIPASS KEY 860 also offers secure mass USB storage for mobile data security. DIGIPASS KEY 860 is used in conjunction with DIGIPASS CertiID™, VASCO’s PKI-based client software suite, and can be integrated within any application supporting PKCS#11, MS CAPI standards and CNG.
Suited for any environment
DIGIPASS KEY 860 is suited for use in corporate environments and for securing online banking applications:
In enterprises it offers a solution for local and remote access to the network and business critical applications, locking of workstations, disk and file encryption, digitally signing e-mails and confidential documents, and mobile data security.
In banking DIGIPASS KEY 860 helps to comply with more stringent financial regulations (Sarbanes-Oxley, Basel II, HIPAA) and enhanced security requirements. Both OTP and PKI technology can be used for digital signature of transactions and the possibility to store a secured browser on DIGIPASS KEY 860 offers new opportunities to banks to effectively combat social engineering and man-in-the-middle attacks.
DIGIPASS Key 860 combines the security of a smart card with the flexibility of a card reader. Digital certificates from any Certificate Authority (Entrust, Microsoft, VeriSign, IdenTrust,…) can be generated and stored on the device. The generation of private and public keys is managed on the device and the keys cannot be exported from the smart card.
With one push on the button of DIGIPASS KEY 860, an OTP will be generated on the screen of the authenticator. The user will type the OTP into the log-on screen on the PC to access the application. When combining the use of PKI with OTP, customers will need to install VASCO’s authentication server technology (VACMAN Controller or IDENTIKEY Authentication Server) to offer event and time-based OTP capability next to PKI functionality.
Secure USB storage and secure CD-ROM content update
DIGIPASS KEY 860 has three pre-defined memory partitions which cannot be altered by the user, making them highly secure:
a partition with CD-ROM capability for software installation (e.g. secured browser installation)
encrypted partition on the fly for secure data storage
a non-secure hard disk partition to store accessory, nonconfidential information
DIGIPASS KEY 860 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.
