charismathics is particularly attentive to the US market and, with its charismathics smart security interface PIV, US government agencies have a better choice for PIV middleware when deploying PIV solutions complying with HSPD 12. charismathics CSSI PIV middleware not only supports the interoperability of PIV cards at the middleware level, but also at the application level.

charismathics CSSI PIV supports in fact PIV cards from all major PIV card vendors, including ActivIdentity, Oberthur, Gemalto, and Athena. Unlike the middleware packages from these vendors, charismathics CSSI PIV has been specifically designed for interoperability and performance with all cards.

With charismathics CSSI PIV, PIV cards can therefore be used for logical access applications such as remote access, computer logon, digital certifi cate signing and encryption.
