DIGIPASS CertiID Software offers a solution to the growing authentication needs of banks, enterprises and governments. It combines PKI and OTP technology, allowing OTP to be used for remote access, desktop and application log-on, while PKI is used for disc encryption, data, e-mail and transaction signing. With DIGIPASS CertiID Software proven identity, privacy and non-repudiation issues are tackled.

Increased identity and data theft, man-in-the-middle attacks, unauthorized access to confidential data demonstrate the growing need for data security solutions. Next to that more stringent regulation has been put in place ensuring data security for companies and financial institutions.

VASCO® Data Security has a solid reputation in helping financial institutions in securing transactions online through two-factor authentication. With DIGIPASS® CertiID, VASCO offers an innovative solution combining PKI and OTP -technology. DIGIPASS CertiID is a client-based software suite combining PKI-technology with OTP technology. In corporate environments DIGIPASS CertiID can be used to secure VPN access, lock computers, encrypt files and discs and sign e-mails or transactions. In banks, DIGIPASS CertiID can be used for the digital signature of high value transactions.

How does it work?

DIGIPASS CertiID has been designed for users unfamiliar with PKI technology. DIGIPASS CertiID is installed on the PC of the enduser and is used in conjunction with a DIGIPASS KEY solution, the end-user authentication device. The DIGIPASS KEY product range is VASCO's offering of authentication devices which support PKI-technology. When the end-user initially requests a certificate, a private key is generated by the smart card of the authentication device and can never be exported. A PIN code must be entered to activate the functionality of the device.

Product Benefits

Combines PKI and OTP technology
DIGIPASS CertiId allows a smooth migration from insecure static passwords to OTP and PKI. Financial institutions and corporations can choose between OTP and PKI functionality or migrate from one to the other. The combination of PKI and OTP on one platform allows companies to use OTP for specific applications (remote access, log-on to applications) whereas at the same time PKI can be used for other applications (document signing, file encryption, transaction signing).

Simple to deploy an maintain
The DIGIPASS CertiID Setup Builder allows customized set up: the user can install only those options he needs. An auto update function can be activated during installation. Support is provided through a troubleshooting and diagnostics tool. These features help IT-administrators with general maintenance. Furthermore, deployment can be done remotely and new security features can easily be added in a later stage, even after physical roll-out of devices to the end-users.

Ease of use
Developed for users unfamiliar with PKI technology, DIGIPASS CertiID enjoys a high user acceptance. The GUI is designed with Windows Explorer look and feel and includes intuitive icons. Users are up and running in no time, resulting in no loss of productivity.
