With the certification complete, Entrust smartcard documentation and collateral will be licensed to display recognizable Microsoft compatibility logos for the Microsoft Windows XP®, Windows Vista® and Windows 7 operating systems. This certification, which applies to 32- and 64-bit operating systems, adds another level of interoperability to Entrust Credentialing Services, ensuring compatibility for hundreds of third-party certificate authentication applications.
"This certification is further testament to our customer-centric focus and desire to simplify deployment, implementation and issuance of multipurpose credentialing projects to appropriately authenticate user identities," said Conner.
Entrust’s certified smartcard chip runs on the Java Card™ operating system and is faster and more advanced than many currently on the market today. The chip also has EAL5+ certification and is FIPS 140-2-compliant.
Entrust Credentialing Services leverage the award-winning versatile authentication platform, Entrust IdentityGuard, to deploy effective smartcard management alongside an array of alternate soft- and hard-form factor authenticators. The solution stands alone in the ability to tightly couple card management with either on-premise or managed service (SaaS) public key infrastructure (PKI) out-of-the-box.
Entrust IdentityGuard also personalizes the physical and logical access electronics on smartcards for end-users. This provides tighter integration during certificate issuance with Entrust or Microsoft certificate authorities (CA). This approach enables a single platform to issue and manage digital certificates that are deployed, on smartcards or USBs, and distributed to end-users.
