The most versatile smart card in the market

Modern organisations have an increasing need to identify their users reliably. The main task of MyEID cards is to effortlessly identify the correct users and their access levels. One highly secure card can function as a visual ID, and contain several RFID and electronic tokens. With straightforward use and administration practices, the card is quick to use and cost-efficient to manage.

Computer logins and email encryption are everyday tasks for most companies. These functions can be carried out using a chip card, which means that users can forget passwords and only have to remember a PIN code. In other words, the card replaces the username and password. Naturally, when just one card holds many different functions, watertight security is a core requirement. MyEID works in various different environments, because it fulfils all basic standards and the necessary functions can be flexibly selected. Other identification technologies can also be linked to the card.

  • VPN- and web authentication


One card, many functions

MyEID cards are built on the latest Java technology. They are also available in dual interface versions or in SIM size, which means they fit into a reader the size of a memory stick. Many other identification technologies can be integrated into the card, which makes it compatible with access control systems, among others. Each card can have up to two RFID tags, as necessary.

Free choice of design

The card material is PVC, which is printable with offset and screen printing techniques. Both thermal transfer and sublimation printing are possible. MyEID cards can also have a magnetic stripe or a signature panel. Additionally, they can be provided with security features such as holograms or various printed elements.

Absolute security

The card’s MyEID applet is compatible with the most common Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) standards, such as PKCS#15. In strong authentication, two different factors are needed, which together identify the user. In PKI, these are typically a smart card, and a PIN number. The actual authentication to a PKI enabled system is a complex mathematical task, which is carried out by the smart card. The PIN number acts as a password to the smart card, so that only the user who knows the PIN can use the card for authentication. So, using a smart card, the authentication has two steps: First, the user authenticates himself to the smart card by entering the correct PIN, and after that, if the PIN was correct, the smart card carries out the actual authentication to the system.

Easy to manage

Simplicity and speed of management and use save time and money. Many software products are available to make managing cards easier:

– Windows Smart Card Minidriver (Windows certified)
– MyClient, a driver system with CSP and PKCS#11 interfaces
– MyEID Editor, a versatile management tool for MyEID cards
– Active Process Manager, the customisable card personalisation system.
