PKI TokensAuthentication, Encryption and Digital Signatures

PKI tokens provide secure storage for digital certificates and private keys. They allow public-key cryptography and digital signatures to be leveraged securely, without risk of leaking the private key information.

Data, document and message encryption using secure PKI tokens

Data Encryption

Sensitive documents can be encrypted for storage or transfer using public-key cryptography, ensuring that only the intended user can then decrypt the document for viewing later.

Digitally sign messages, documents and emails for authenticity using PKI hardware tokens

Authenticity Checking

By digitally signing a message or document, a recipient can be assured that the sender is trusted.

Ensure data integrity using digital signatures and public key cryptography

Integrity Checking

Similar to Authenticity Checking, the use of digital signatures on sensitive messages or documents assures recipients that the data has not been modified after the signature was created.

User authentication and secure login using digital certificates with PKI tokens and smart cards

User Authentication

Use digital certificates to validate the identity of a user when they are accessing a restricted system or resource.

What is PKI?

PKI, which stands for Public Key Infrastructure, is a system which creates, stores and distributes digital certificates. Digital-certificates are used to secure the transfer of information, assert identity information and verify the authenticity of messages through public key cryptography and digital signatures.

In a PKI, digital certificates are issued by a Certificate Authority (CA) and bind public keys with identities (eg, users).

PKI security can be deployed in web applications, online banking, BYOD, e-ID, e-Healthcare and more.

Hardware PKI Tokens

PKI tokens are hardware devices that store digital certificates and private keys securely. When you need to encrypt, decrypt or sign something, the token does this internally in a secure chip meaning the keys are never at risk of being stolen.

We supply the following PKI tokens:
