Security Smart Card Reader

The PX6 is a PCI Express Mini Card designed for embedded devices which require safe communication (encryption/authentication). It is an extension module which can be used with a PCI Express Mini Card with WLAN or Mobile (LTE) modem functionality. With the PX6, for example, any device can be easily integrated in a cloud. This may be required for maintenance, service or diagnostic purposes. In combination with a customer Smart Card the PX6 provides secure authentication on the remote cloud server.

The secure communication is realized with the mechanisms provided by VPN connection. Therefore, the Smart Card stores the certificate plus the private key used for authentication. In addition, the Smart Card is secured with a pin before getting access to the private key.
