PIVKey combines the benefits of the PIV card standard with the benefits of a Windows Smart Card minidriver.
The US Government PIV (Personal Identity Verification) Card standard is widely supported by applications and operating systems for Digital Certificates. Windows supports PIV cards natively, with an in-box driver. VMWare also supports PIV cards in their VM infrastructure. However issuing and managing a PIV compatible card has required complex proprietary solutions - until now.
PIVKey enables companies to issue PIV compatible cards without these complex proprietary systems. Issuers simply install the PIVKey minidriver and tools, and can then use the standard Windows certificate enrollment processes to load certificates on the card.
