journalofcyberpolicy.com: “High-security Encrypted Communication In Compact Cell Phone Format”
The German system developer embedded brains has developed the hardware, mechanical components and power management strategy for the compact personal security device genucard 3 from genucard GmbH, a German IT security specialist. Mobile users can securely connect to and access the company network while on the road or from the home office. The compact device can be easily connected via USB to any laptop or workstation and enables access to sensitive data in classified networks via a Virtual Private Network (VPN). Compared to the previous version, the genucard 3 offers these advantages: Dual-band Wi-Fi for high-performance WLAN connection, authentication via PIN entry directly on the device, and a compact cell phone format. The approval process is currently in progress at the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) for the classification level RESTRICTED.
