ACOS5-64 Cryptographic Smart Card

ACOS5-64 is an advanced Cryptographic Smart Card fully compliant with ISO7816-1/2/3/4/8/9 and common criteria EAL5+ (chip level) specifications. It is specifically designed to enhance the security and performance of RSA Public-key cryptographic operations, which are essential in applications requiring smart card PKI, digital signature and high level security.

With the CSP/ PKCS#11 middleware and mini-driver provide by Chipsilicon, the ACOS5-64 Cryptographic Smart Card can easily be used in both WINDOWS and Linux applications.  The ACOS5-64 supports the latest WINDOWS 7 and WINDOWS SERVER 2008 in both x86 and x64 bit environment.

Further, ACOS5-64 allows multiple secure PKI applications in one card. By requesting for a digital certificate from a Public Certificate Authority (CA)or an in-house CA, one can use ACOS5-64 in a variety of applications, namely:

  • Secure and Digital Email Signing
