Vasco extends PKI-based product line

Offers encryption capability and authentication for PKI-enabled operating systems and VPNs

By CBR Staff Writer

Vasco Data Security said that it is extending its PKI-based product line with two new authenticators, Digipass Key 200 and Digipass Key 860. Digipass Key 200 is a USB device with a PKI smart card and USB mass storage on a single device and Digipass Key 860 is a smart card ID device, an OTP authenticator and USB storage in one.

Vasco said that the Digipass Key 200 combines PKI technology, secured mass storage and the possibility to integrate RFID technology for physical access. The Digipass Key 860 combines OTP technology with PKI and offers secured mass storage and opportunities to combat phishing and man-in-the-middle attacks.

According to Vasco, both Digipass Key 200 and Digipass Key 860 offer PKI-based digital signature for e-mails or transactions, encryption capability and authentication for PKI-enabled operating systems, VPNs and application. Both combine the security of a smart card with the flexibility of a card reader. The generation of private and public keys is managed on the devices and the keys cannot be exported from the smart card on the devices.

Digipass Key 860 offers device-based OTP generation. When combining the use of PKI with OTP, customers will need to install the company’s authentication server technology to offer event and time based OTP capability next to PKI-functionality. With Digipass Key 200 and Digipass Key 860 corporate data can be encrypted and stored on the a uthenticator. For secure storage, user transparent on fly encryption technology is used by both devices, the company said.
