If your company relies on passwords to prevent unauthorized computer access, or low-tech memory cards (e.g., swipe cards) for facility access, you have security on par with the average 1980s car. Smart credentials — embedded in plastic smartcards, USB tokens or mobile devices — offer companies advanced and versatile user authentication features.

This white paper discusses the advantages of using smart credentials for multifunction access; describes the hardware and software components used in a smart credential environment; and provides questions to ask when searching for a smart credential solution provider.
