Authentication - ePASS tokens
Public Key Infrastructure
A public key infrastructure (PKI) supports the distribution and identification of public encryption keys, enabling users and computers to both securely exchange data over networks such as the Internet and verify the identity of the other party.
Securing sensitive information
Without PKI, sensitive information can still be encrypted (ensuring confidentiality) and exchanged, but there would be no assurance of the identity (authentication) of the other party.
Any form of sensitive data exchanged over the Internet is reliant on PKI for security.
A typical PKI consists of hardware, software, policies and standards to manage the creation, administration, distribution and revocation of keys and digital certificates. Digital certificates are at the heart of PKI as they affirm the identity of the certificate subject and bind that identity to the public key contained in the certificate.
A security token is used as part of a system to prove one's identity electronically as a prerequisite for accessing network resources. There are many types of hardware and software based tokens, sometimes referred to as dongles, key fobs, authentication tokens, USB tokens and cryptographic tokens.
