A Digi-Token™ is any cryptographic USB token that has been tested and approved to work with Digi-CA™. And because most modern computers have a USB port, USB tokens are probably the most convenient hardware for storing a user's digital certificate/signature.
The only real limitation of using Digi-Tokens™ is that there are few, if any, sophisticated token management systems in the market. So if you are considering issuing tens of thousands of certificates/signatures, you may wish to consider either Digi-Card™ or the Digi-ID™ roaming solution.
The Digi-Token™ has many uses and here are a few examples:
Digi-Tokens™ can be supplied in three ways:
The two main Digi-Token™ delivery options are as follows:
There are two types of USB devices on which private keys and public key certificates can be stored, a USB cryptographic device and a USB flash memory device. Each device can support a different key and digital certificate storage formats.
The most secure method is to store the private key and public key certificates on a USB cryptographic device (also commonly referred to as a security token, hardware token or a cryptographic token). A Digi-Token™ is a cryptographic token.
The other method of storing private keys and digital certificates is to use a software implementation of the PKCS#12 standard that introduces the Personal Information Exchange Syntax in a form of password protected data file. PKCS#12 file is like any other software file and can be stored on a standard USB flash memory device.
In addition to a cryptographic token, some environment also use a One Time Password [OTP]. The OTP can be provided by Cell-OTP™ or it can be a Digi-Token™ with an OTP panel that communicates with a Radius authentication server.
If your organisation already has a Radius or other authentication server, then the Digi-Token™ OTP is what you require. Alternatively you should order Digi-Token™ ASAS where the cost of the authentication server is included in the price.
With all of the advances in data security efforts there have been a whole host of products introduced to the general public that are all intended to increase the security of information on computers and decrease unwanted access. There have been so many new products introduced that it is hard to keep up with and the majority of these do not achieve a level of success that warrants much attention. Although there have been many attempts there really have not been any one or two revolutionary products, rather we have seen a variety of products that suffice and soon become replaced. Since there is so much focus on information security and a lot of media attention on the issue it is surprising that there really haven't been any breakthrough products. This is probably due to the fact that there are many adequate products being used by companies throughout the world, such as RSA token products and other various models. These RSA token security products have been associated with a data breach so there popularity has likely peaked. If your company is looking for a similar security enhancing product you will want to consider the USB token product from Digi-Sign, called Digi-Token. You can find out more information related to this right here at Digi-sign.com.
These USB tokens are popular because they store a user's digital certificate e signature on a device accessed via the USB port. Since just about every computer out there now has a USB port this is an option that is viable for use by anyone worldwide. In using virtual tokens you are essentially adding another layer of protection to your data and providing your systems with the strength of a two factor authentication setup. The Digi-Token has other uses which include Cloud Computing Security, Secure Email, and Digital Signatures. By storing your information this way it improves the security and reduces the likelihood of having your information intercepted by unwanted parties.
As is the case with any product or service provided by Digi-Sign, the Digi-Token products are backed by the reputation earned by the company for providing top quality service to their customers.
