detailed information

The use of SmartCards despite being highly secure faces two main problems:
  • compatibility and usability issues especially when using multiple SmartCards
  • installation of additional hardware equipment for each client (reader) becomes necessary

This makes any SmartCard rollout difficult, and therefore the use of SmartCards is made even more expensive.
TokenControl provides a secure alternative to SmartCards utilizing Software-Tokens (based on encrypted PKCS#12 files) while simulating a SmartCard on the client. TokenControl ensures an easy interoperability with any SmartCard-based environment. Thus TokenContol is either the ideal add-on for any SmartCard-based system or a good step on the way towards such a system.

Taking into account the additional functionality of TokenControl, it provides - from various points of view - an even higher level of security than SmardCards combined with its great advantages regarding manageability, roll-out and cost-efficiency.
