RSA Security

RSA SecurID Passage is a smart card and digital credential solution that provides user authentication to networks and multiple applications. It replaces static passwords with a Java platform smart card for user authentication to workstations, networks and sensitive data. RSA SecurID Passage leverages traditional passwords or digital certificates for accessing resources, offering transparent migration paths from passwords to digital certificates. Its Java Card multi-application capability allows users to deploy other applications — ranging from electronic purse to custom-designed employee applications — to the same card and the ability to extend the usage of digital certificates and key sets to security-sensitive email, Web and VPN environments. The RSA SecurID Passage smart card solution includes desktop software, an RSA SecurID 5100 Java Card smart card and an optional PC/SC smart card reader. It is currently available in Australia through distributor Express Data.

RRP: $100 per user (for 10 users).
