ACOS5 Cryptographic Smart Card

ACOS5ACOS5 is an advanced cryptographic smart card that fully complies with ISO 7816-1/2/3/4/8/9 and is specially designed for public-key based applications. It is specially designed for enhancing security and performance for RSA public-key cryptographic operations that are essential in smart card PKI, digital signature and high level security requirements. ACOS5 provides up to 32KB EEPROM of secure data storage. Typical applications include payment system, e-banking, e-commerce, stock trading, network security, corporate identity, Microsoft windows logon, PKI application, and cryptographic middleware layers CSP and PKCS#11.

CryptoMateFrustrated by network breaches like Trojan program attack, credential/password leakage, legitimate session hijacking, or all of the above? It is time for a CryptoMate.

The CryptoMate (ACOS5-CTM) is a 2-in-1 USB token, combining seamlessly the security of a cryptographic smart card chip and the convenience of a USB connector. It is always ready to be plugged into the USB port of any workstations, either for logon window or pay online. Everything is well prepared for you. You will never get into the trouble of seeking inter-operable smart card and smart card reader!

The CryptoMate is among the securest and lightest cryptographic USB tokens in the world. The built-in ACOS5 chip (32K bytes EEPROM) complies with the most stringent international standards, like ISO 7816 -3,-4-8,-9 and possess the most reliable encrypting capabilities like DES, 3DES, AES, and RSA. Though rich in features, it is merely 10 grams in weight, which is even lighter than a coin. You can pocket and use it conveniently anywhere you like.

Moreover, the CryptoMate is specially designed for PKI-based (Public Key Infrastructure) applications. Obviously, smart card technology combines with public key security system does provide a greater level of protection against hackers than a standalone public key system. All sensitive credentials and private keys are stored inside the smart card but not the vulnerable computer. As they never leave the token, ultimate security is reached.

Contactless Cards

Contactless CardsContactless smart cards are used in many of the same applications as contact smart cards, especially where the added convenience and speed of not having to insert the card into a reader is desirable. There is a growing acceptance of this type of card for both physical and logical access control applications. Student identification, electronic passport, vending, parking and tolls are common applications for contactless cards.

The available contactless cards are the MIFARE 1K and MIFARE 4K cards.

Contactless Cards features:

  • 1K byte EEPROM or 4K byte EEPROM
  • Embedded antenna
