HID Global announced its new Crescendo C1150 smart card suite of credentials that provide a standards-based solution across a broad range of converged logical and physical access applications.

The C1150 can be used for two-factor authentication for PC login and for accessing virtual private networks (VPNs), creating public/private key infrastructure (PKI)-based digital signatures, generating one-time passwords (OTPs), and enhancing data protection for data-at-rest as well as for secure data transmission.  The solution also supports a broad range of physical access requirements.

The Crescendo C1150 smart cards work in stand-alone mode without card management system involvement for out-of-the-box deployment, and they are available in quantities as small as 25.  The smart cards come pre-loaded with a default configuration that has been tested across a range of logical access applications including Microsoft products as well as HID’s 4TRESSTM AAA authentication server, naviGO card lifecycle management software, and ActivClient security client software.  The cards provide broad support for Microsoft’s logical access products through interoperability with the Microsoft-approved smart card Minidriver specification, as well as third-party applications.
