GlobalPlatform Based Solutions: 

  • ActivIdentity Solutions for Enterprise: ActivIdentity Smart Card and USB Token solutions enable organizations to dramatically improve IT security while reducing costs and increasing employee productivity. Our One eID Smart Card solution consolidates identity credentials onto a single, secure smart card or USB Token. The card can serve as a physical access badge, photo ID, secure network login, PC locking, secure VPN, secure email with digital signatures, and a variety of other desktop and network applications. This solution leverages existing IT infrastructures via integration with enterprise directories, physical access systems and PKI services to streamline the issuance and administration of digital IDs. ActivClient enables smart card security and convenience on end-user workstations. All ActivIdentity products in this solution support the GlobalPlatform Card Specification: ActivClientTM, ActivIdentity CMS, ActivKeyTM, and ActivIdentity Applets.
  • ActivIdentity Solutions for Government: The ActivIdentity Card Management System (CMS) provides the performance, security, scalability, and flexibility required for large-scale smart card identity programs. Combined with smart card applets and ActivClient middleware from ActivIdentity, the ActivIdentity CMS provides the ideal solution for a wide range of applications including driver' licenses, employee ID cards, passports, health care cards, and multi-function citizen IDs. All ActivIdentity products in this solution support the GlobalPlatform Card Specification: ActivIdentity CMS, ActivClientTM, and ActivIdentity Applets.

GlobalPlatform Implementation Programs: The Department of Defense (DoD) Common Access Card (CAC) program. The ActivIdentity digital identity protection platform has enabled the DoD to issue a single smart card that incorporates identification credentials including a digital photo of the user, information necessary for both facility and network access, benefits entitlement and a digital signature for electronic transactions. The card is essentially an electronic key for secure logical access to the department's computer networks, physical access to military bases and other DoD facilities, complete with a miniature computer capable of downloading programs to enable future capabilities.

As an industry leader, we believe strongly in embracing and driving standards. Proprietary, closed systems create vendor-lock-in problems, place the entire burden of integration on the customer and provide no guarantee of future support. GlobalPlatform facilitates industry cooperation that allows for greater interoperability between solutions, and ActivIdentity strongly endorses its mission and vision.
