ActivIdentity ActivID Card Management System As large organizations move away from the use of traditional user name / password mechanisms for access control, they face the challenge of managing a large and fluctuating number of end users, dispersed locations, and heterogeneous environments.

ActivIdentity ActivID™ Card Management System provides a complete, flexible, and highly configurable solution to manage the issuance and administration requirements of successful smart card deployments. With ActivIdentity ActivID Card Management System organizations can manage their authentication devices (e.g., smart cards and smart USB tokens), data (e.g., static passwords, biometrics, and demographic data), applets (e.g. one-time password applications and Personal Identity Verification [PIV] applets), and digital credentials (including public key infrastructure [PKI] certificates) throughout their entire life cycle.

In conjunction with ActivIdentity ActivClient security software as well as public key cryptography standards (PKCS) #11-compliant middleware, ActivID Card Management System issues and manages smart cards and smart USB tokens that can be used for a wide variety of desktop, network security, and productivity applications. In its fullest use case, it becomes a “Smart Employee ID Card” for both logical and physical access control.

  • Minimizes the time and costs associated with deploying and maintaining digital identities in the form of smart cards or smart USB tokens

  • Meets stringent U.S. federal government standards for Personal Identity Verification (PIV)
