Entrust Datacard Authentication

Power of Choice for IT and Users

With Entrust Datacard, IT professionals can support a breadth of identity credentials and provide credentials that are tailored to user requirements and preferences. Make users happy by issuing credentials that utilize their mobile device, including mobile push authentications, one-time passwords (OTPs) or smart credentials secured by PKI. We also provide grid card and SMS/email OTPs for maximum cost efficiency.

Fully Automated Self-Enrollment

Our credential issuance solution makes setting up authorized users seamless and secure, no matter where they are. Defined automated enrollment methods direct users to self-register over the air. Once users are provisioned, you have access to policy management capabilities and can revoke access if required.

Flexible Credential Recovery

Manage credentials or recover credentials when they get lost or misplaced. Allow users to reenroll for credentials with our password reset capabilities integrating into your Active Directory. Or use back up authenticators, such as grid cards or mobile OTPs, to verify the reissuance request.

Endless Opportunities

Leverage an existing identity to issue a credential, such as a smart card or an EMV bank card, to bootstrap the credential issuance process. You can also use your ATM to issue a mobile credential: user authenticates by using their bank card at the ATM, then select the option to create an identity and scan the QR code through your mobile banking app to confirm your request before the mobile credential is instantly issued.

How Our Self-Service Model Works

1. Upon setup, our self-service solution automatically sends users enrollment notifications.

2. Users download our mobile smart credential app from a public or private app store.

3. Users activate their digital identities by scanning QR codes, using email activation links, manually enrolling with activation codes or leveraging an existing identity, such as a Derived-PIV smart card or an EMV bank card, to bootstrap the credential issuance process.

4. Almost instantly, users can access websites, VPNs, apps and other services, such as digital signing and encrypted email. No passwords, usernames, smart cards or hardware tokens are required.
