The Power to Easily Manage eToken Authenticators

eToken PKI Client links applications to eToken certificate-based software and hardware authenticators, providing full local administration and support for multiple security applications. With eToken PKI Client, 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.

A Unified Solution for All Users

The eToken PKI Client is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux, as well as for BlackBerry, so your enterprise can take advantage of certificate-based security solutions ranging from strong authentication, to password management and digital signing, from virtually any computer. Extending usability even further, the eToken PKI Client for BlackBerry enables the BlackBerry Smart Card Reader to securely communicate with SafeNets eToken PRO Smartcard.

The Key to a Successful Certificate-Enabled Solution

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 smart card-based authenticators, SafeNet keeps secret credentials safe from unauthorized access and ensures your certificate-enabled solution is a success.
