By CBR Staff Writer

ActivIdentity, has unveiled several enhancements to its credential management system, ActivID Card Management System. The system now supports public key cryptography standards (PKCS) #11-compliant middleware and also features automatic certificate renewal and smart card update capabilities.

In conjunction with ActivClient security software and PKCS #11-compliant middleware, ActivID Card Management System issues and manages smart cards and smart USB tokens that are being used for a variety of desktop, network security, and productivity applications.

The company said that the ActivID Card Management System is currently being deployed by security-minded, large-scale organisations such as Nissan and Repsol and has also been used for the issuance and management of Personal Identity Verification (PIV) cards in the US Federal government.
