Identity

Athena Identity solutions provide an ideal platform for secure multi-factor authentication. Available in range of form factors, technology and certification options including support for biometric match on-card and a range of pre-written companion applications to extend possible functionality. Athena Identity solutions are delivered with the Athena IDProtect Client MS-CAPI/PKCS#11 middleware to provide out-of-the-box integration with existing systems.

Overview

Athena identity solutions are built for Government, Enterprise and Healthcare customers wishing to secure both logical and physical assets. Athena's unique position as OS, middleware and application developer allows us to offer complete solutions in a variety of form factors, supporting the latest API's and certified to industry security standards.   

Form factor choice

Athena's silicon independence allows us to offer a range of delivery options including; wafers, modules, contact, dual interface, contactless, USB, miscoSD and other secure element formats to match project requirements.

Logical authentication

Athena's IDProtect Client middleware, card and on-card PKI application provides a complete authentication package. Our PKI solution stack provides transparent support for PKCS#11, Microsoft CAPI/CNG and optionally Microsoft ILM/FIM. 

Athena middleware is available for Windows, LINUX and Mac OSX systems making it ideal for mixed architecture deployments.

Biometric match-on-card 

Athena partners with leading biometric companies to provide the state-of-the-art match-on-card algorithms embedded  in our solutions. 

Once activated, Athena IDProtect Client has built-in support for Windows biometric logon enabling true multi-factor authentication.  

Beyond PKI and Logon

With the option of using any of our multi-application Java Card platforms comes the possibility of further extending the functionality offered by the solution. Athena offers a range of optimized identity applications which can be added, including ICAO, IAS ECC, IDL and PIV. Alternatively compatible 3rd party Java Card applications can be loaded pre or post issuance.   

Microsoft Support  - Windows Logon

Microsoft’s Cryptography API (CAPI) and Cryptography API: Next Generation (CNG) support can be deployed as either a certified Athena Crypto Service Provider (CSP) or Minidriver and is available for 32 and 63bit architectures. 

IDProtect Client seamlessly integrates with Microsoft Windows applications including:

  • Outlook
  • Internet Explorer
  • Windows 7, Vista, XP, Server 2003/2008/2008 R2 Smart Card Logon
  • VPN
  • Remote Terminal Services.

Physical authentication - hybrid solutions

Athena can provide composite devices incorporating companion RFID technologies. This allows a single device to host multiple technologies,such as MiFare, EM, HID Prox, HiTag, Legic, etc.  to support most authentication options.
