As government organizations increasingly move towards mobile devices, they are asking how they can provide their workers with access to their applications and data with a secure digital certificate. Common Access Cards (CAC) and Personal Identity Verification (PIV) smart cards are used to manage access to both online and physical resources through controlled access to networks, systems, building and spaces.  However, this standard way of doing things doesn’t always work in mobile situations.

Securely storing government credentials on mobile devices allows these individuals to transform their applications into a secure enterprise space; and this is where derived credentials come into place.

In this 60 minute educational web seminar, OneSpan along with Entrust, the leader in government software authentication platforms that strengthen security in a wide range of identity and transaction ecosystems, provide an overview of derived PIV/CAC credentials for government and how the derived credential on mobile devices is the next generation of US Government’s use of PKI, enabling government workers to build trust for authentication in an increasingly mobile workplace.

Viewers will learn:

  • What is the derived PIV/CAC credential in government and why it’s so important
  • What the implementation looks like
  • The value of derived credentials with electronic signatures
  • How can this be leveraged to other parts of government or commercial entities

Featuring a demo of e-signatures with derived credentials, this is a must-view session for any federal organization looking to create a secure and legally enforceable means of executing regulated transactions using laptops, iPads and smartphones.
