Securely into the Cloud: PCI Express Mini Card with Smart Card Interface

BLUE BELL, Pa. November 2016 The PCI Express Mini Card PX6 protects your system from unauthorized access. An integrated Smart Card stores the access codes for data transfer into the cloud. The encryption solution is independent of the cloud provider. 

Secure Communication – Mobile and Stationary

To protect data transfer from undesirable access, an existing system can easily be secured by integrating the smart card reader PX6. This PCIe Mini Card provides a safe encryption on the cloud server. This may be required for maintenance, service or diagnostic purposes.

The module does not waste an additional PCIe Mini Card slot, but can be used with the same slot as an existing mobile interface card.

The secure communication is realized via VPN connection. Therefore, the Smart Card stores the security certificate as well as the private key used for authentication. In addition, the Smart Card itself is secured with a PIN before getting access to the private key.

This module is used e.g. in entertainment or storage systems in railways or stationary. The robust box PCs as well as the modular CompactPCI systems from MEN offer corresponding slots.

The PX6 is designed for an extended temperature range of -40 to +85°C and is certified to ISO7816 Smart Card specification.

  • Compliant to ISO7816 Smart Card specification
