Route 1’s MobiKEY Fusion identity validation device is now available to the general public, offering identity based security access through smart card technology. Basing their device off of the ID-1 standard, or international standard which is often used for government-issued cards, the MobiKEY multi-factor authentication system combines computer and network access with physical access.
MobiKEY Fusion functions to simplify the access component, while the operator, MobiNET manages the identities of users and entitlement to digital resources. This extra layer means users may only access systems with a combination of their MobiKEY Fusion device, identity or access card and secret password.
In the past MobiKEY has been utilized by government military operations ensuring that field personnel and warﬁghters have secure access to C4ISR systems and the information they need at the time they need it. Now, however the device is available commercially.
Route1 will demonstrate the MobiKEY Fusion at the RSA Security Expo in San Francisco, from March 2-4, 2010.
