  • Easy, efficient & flexible
    StarSign Crypto USB Token offers a plug & play solution that uses a CCID interface. No additional drivers need to be installed to run the token on Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7, which means flexibility for users at its best. On request the token will be supported by Linux Ubuntu, Red Hat, Fedora, Suse, and Mandriva as well as Mac OS 10.5.
  • Modern design & individual issuer branding
    Boasting a new design, yet fully integrated into the family design concept, its small size guarantees that additional USB devices can be used in adjacent USB ports. The modern design leaves maximum space for individual issuer branding on the wing cap.

    Since the token is based on the most modern JavaCard-based Smart Card Operating System Sm@rtCafé Expert, it is possible to integrate further applications at any time. The operation will be secured by its wide range of crypto features such as RSA, elliptic curves and SHA 512.
  • FIPS certification
    The token received the FIPS 140-2, Level 3 certification as a complete system, as it is manufactured using corresponding materials and is equipped with G&D's tried and tested smart card security features.
