​Softlock Biometric PKI Token Describtion

Softlock Biometric PKI Token is a Multifactor authentication security hardware. It provides the optimum security through verifing the users identity with their unique fingerprint. It is compatible with both RSA standards and Microsoft standards, which are commonly used by most of the applications to perform their secure operations. 

Biometric PKI Token Fearures

Driverless USB Device

Softlock PKI Token is an HID device, which means that it doesn’t require any drivers to work. The Plug and Play nature gives ease of use and installation during deployment within any environment.

Two and Three Factor Authentication

Softlock Smart Token family is delivered in two models. The Softlock Smart Token PRO provide Two Factor Authentication, which are:
Something you know (The Token PIN)
something you have (the Hardware token).

Another available model is Softlock Smart Token BIO, which provide Three Factor Authentication, Something you know, something you have and something you are which is a Fingerprint module. The Softlock Biometric PKI Token requires the Smart Token owner to supply the Token PIN and enroll his fingerprint in order to be able to use the smart token.

Hardware Security

Softlock Smart Token is a hardware device with 32-bit processor. The strength of hardware security is that all keys and cryptographic functionalities are executed on board, keeping all data safe from compromising in unsecure software environment. The recommendation of security institutes (Example: FIPS140-2) secure data must be generated, stored and processed in a separate environment outside the computer. This will protect sensitive user data from digital attacks. Softlock Smart Token can generate RSA-1024 keys.

Hardware Storage

Softlock Smart Token contains secure and encrypted Hardware Storage. This hardware secure storage will keep all users’ keys and certificates secure against any third party attack. Softlock Smart Token can store up to 10 Certificates on board.

International Standards Compliance

Softlock Smart Token is built on international standards, keeping it compliant with different tools and third party software. Softlock Smart Token is shipped with libraries compliant with PKCS#11 and Microsoft CSP. International standards cover: PKCS (1, 5, 7, 8, 10, 11, 2.2 and 12), X5.09 Certificates, CSP and FIPS 140-2-L2. Softlock Smart Token is certified from ITIDA and compliant with the Egyptian Digital Signature Law.


Softlock Smart Token is compatible with Windows NT and Linux Platforms.

Softlock Smart Token libraries can be easily integrated with any application compliant with PKCS#11 or CSP standards. Examples for such applications are Microsoft Outlook™, Thunderbird™, Firefox™ and Internet Explorer™.

Softlock Smart Token can be easily integrated with any certificates issued from international and trusted third party CAs.
