Today smart cards are used as identity devices by many organizations where medium to high levels of security are required. Organizations can use smart cards for physical access to corporate buildings, corporate network application authentication and access, encryption of sensitive data and signing and encryption of emails to name some of the uses of smart cards. Smart cards on their own are not very useful; they need to be managed and extended to utilize the full potential of the smart card, which the vSEC:CMS product suite from Versatile Security is specialized in. One product in the suite is the vSEC:CMS U-Series. This product is the end-user interface for the management of smart cards. One of the most important smart card management functions is the management of the users’ smart card PIN. PIN management includes setting rules for how PINs should be constructed and enabling functions such as PIN change and PIN unblock. This is the cornerstone functionality of the vSEC:CMS U-Series.
