PKI Client 5.0 for strong authentication

Aladdin Knowledge Systems : 18 September, 2008  (New Product)
Aladdin takes eToken to next generation with the release of PKI Client 5.0 for Windows providing strong authentication for the consumer market
Aladdin Knowledge Systems has announced the general availability of Aladdin eToken PKI Client 5.0. As the foundation of eToken's PKI-based strong authentication solutions, eToken PKI Client 5.0 is at the forefront of encryption technologies.

Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) is the basis for authentication, digital signatures and non-repudiation, and Aladdin's newest version of the eToken PKI Client provides an enhanced framework for creating a secure method for exchanging information based on public key cryptography.

Continuing the Aladdin tradition of advanced strong authentication solutions, eToken PKI Client 5.0 for Windows is the forerunner in the eToken 5.0 version alignment. This generation will provide exciting new features and an enhanced user experience, as well as previewing upcoming eToken products, such as eToken Token Management System (TMS) 5.0. eToken PKI 5.0 for Windows will be followed shortly by versions for Linux and Apple Macintosh later this year, as Aladdin consistently makes available robust platforms with enhanced support to suit the needs of its customers.

"Aladdin eToken PKI Client 5.0 will form the base of a new generation of Aladdin strong authentication solutions," said Shlomi Yanai, vice president of the Authentication Business Unit at Aladdin Knowledge Systems. "eToken PKI 5.0 marks the first step in our new range of solutions that will ensure we maintain our position as technological leaders in authentication and will enable our expansion into new markets, such as consumer authentication."

New features ensuring secure access include an enhanced Password Complexity Module that allows the user to determine password complexity (i.e. password strength/policy), improved management capabilities and ease-of use updates.

eToken PKI Client 5.0 offers an efficient method to manage permissions, enabling administrators to configure two different permissions sets - one for administrators and another for non-administration users. Permission for each item of the PKI Client's properties can be tagged separately for different level of users. The management capabilities of this version have been significantly improved, and a built-in logging mechanism enables advanced diagnostics and support. Users can also now delete stored data objects, such as certificates or SSO profiles, without entirely initializing the token. Support issues have been minimized through the seamless deployment of service packs.

Usability was a key focus in this release, and this new release has been designed to enable an exceptional user-friendly customer experience. This has been enabled by features such as domain password (Windows Logon) synchronization with the token password, enabling smoother user access. Aladdin has enhanced its localization services to meet the needs of its growing global customer base. eToken PKI 5.0 currently supports English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian and Polish, soon to be supplemented with Japanese, Korean, Thai, Chinese, French (Canada), and Portuguese (Brazil).
