HONG KONG, 30 December 2016 - Advanced Card Systems Ltd. (ACS, a wholly owned subsidiary of Advanced Card Systems Holdings Ltd., SEHK: 2086), Asia Pacific's top supplier and one of the world's top 3 suppliers of PC-linked smart card readers (Source: Frost & Sullivan), added two new products to its strong authentication solutions: ACOS5-64 v3.00 Cryptographic Smart Card and CryptoMate Nano.
ACOS5-64 v3.00 is a FIPS 140-2 Level 3-certified module. As such, it employs security mechanisms against both physical access and access to critical user and system information. It is the core of the ACOS5-64 Cryptographic Smart Card and Cryptomate Nano. The module is where cryptographic operations are performed, as opposed to a PC or terminal, to guard against hacking or sniffing.
The ACOS5-64 v3.00 Cryptographic Smart Card is designed to boost the performance and security of RSA public-key operations.
CryptoMate Nano is one of the most portable cryptographic USB tokens in the market, with a length of only 29.25 mm, a width of 14.80 mm, and a height of 10.28 mm. Its tiny casing is tamper-evident.
The cryptographic smart card and USB token both come with 64 KB EEPROM and are compliant with major international standards. They are ideal for various PKI applications, and can easily be used in Windows, Linux and MAC environments.
“With the ACOS5-64 v3.00 Cryptographic Smart Card and CryptoMate Nano, we wanted to deliver products offering high-security functions,” says Gilbert Leung, Senior Vice President for Sales and Marketing. “With the features of these two devices, our smart card product line is more competitive than ever.”
