Securely into the Cloud: PCI Express Mini Card with Smart Card Interface
- PCI Express Mini Card form factor
- Smart Card interface for secure authentication
- Compliant to ISO7816 Smart Card specification
- Compatible with all PCI Express Mini Cards
- -40 to +85°C operating temperature, screened
Secure Communication – Mobile and Stationary
To protect data transfer from undesirable access, an existing system can easily be secured by integrating the smart card reader PX6. This PCIe Mini Card provides a safe encryption on the cloud server. This may be required for maintenance, service or diagnostic purposes.
The module does not waste an additional PCIe Mini Card slot, but can be used with the same slot as an existing mobile interface card.
The secure communication is realized via VPN connection. Therefore, the Smart Card stores the security certificate as well as the private key used for authentication. In addition, the Smart Card itself is secured with a PIN before getting access to the private key.
This module is used e.g. in entertainment or storage systems in railways or stationary. The robust box PCs as well as the modular CompactPCI systems from MEN offer corresponding slots.
The PX6 is designed for an extended temperature range of -40 to +85°C and is certified to ISO7816 Smart Card specification.
