A solution for the future. Today, there are more than 10 million Gemalto smart card devices being used around the world. From smart card tokens to badges, to mobile solutions, the demand for smaller, less intrusive security devices is driving development at lightening speed. In the next two to five years, the next generation of handsets BYOD/ mobile desktop will increase needs for Secure Elements and there are a host of possibilities on the horizon. The added value of IDGo 800 is that this middleware will evolve with the technology. Gemalto will continuously embed new drivers for the future secure elements as soon as they are available (UICC-SIM, MicroSD, TEE, eSE, tokens, etc) and will provide updates, support and maintenance.
IDGo 800 is a cryptographic middleware suite supporting the IDPrime .NET and MD smart cards and secure elements range.
The IDGo 800 suite includes several components:
- IDGo 800 Minidriver, available on Windows environments.
- IDGo 800 Credential Provider, available on Windows environments.
- IDGo 800 PKCS#11 libraries, available on Windows, Mac OS and Linux environments.
- IDGo 800 Middleware for Mobiles, available on Android and iOS environments.
The IDGo 800 Minidriver:
certified and distributed by Microsoft. It ensures a perfect integration in the Windows Base CSP / CAPI architecture, with the benefit of the Plug & Play service available since Windows 7. It is fully compliant with the Microsoft Minidriver v7 specifications, with some additional advanced features such as the PIN Policy
The IDGo 800 PKCS#11 libraries:
ensures the compatibility of the IDPrime smart cards with any PC environment: Windows, Mac OS, Linux. It provides application developpers with a single cryptographic API for all those platforms.
The IDGo 800 Credential Provider:
based on the standard Windows Credential Provider technology used for logon and user authentication operations, with extended services, such as the multi-PIN support and the “Change PIN at first use”option.
The IDGo 800 Middleware and SDK for Mobiles:
provides the support of the various IDPrime Secure Elements form factors and their associated communication drivers and readers, through the PKI, OTP and PC/SC APIs.
