  • Overview


    SafeNet High Assurance High Assurance Client links applications to sKey6500 and SC650 certificate-based hardware authenticators, providing full local administration and support for multiple security applications. With this middleware, private keys can be generated and stored on-board highly secure smart card-based authenticators allowing users to securely carry all their digital credentials wherever they go.


    The SafeNet High Assurance High Assurance Client is available for Windows and Linux operating systems, so your organization can take full advantage of certificate-based security solutions ranging from strong authentication, to password management and digital signing, from virtually any computer. The SafeNet High Assurance Client provides domain awareness that is compatible with the SafeNet SC650 Multi-Domain smart card. This allows for protection against inadvertent card insertions.


    Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) is based on a key pair assigned to an entity by a trusted authority: a private key which is known only to the designated entity, and a public key (digital certificate) which is available to anyone. The success of the PKI solution depends on the degree to which the private key is kept secret. Storing private keys on the computer leaves them vulnerable to physical and malicious software attacks. By storing users’ private keys on-board personal secure smartcard-based authenticators, SafeNet keeps secret credentials safe from unauthorized access and ensures your certificate-enabled solution is a success.
