Private and public sector organizations that are unable to directly access the government public key infrastructure (GPKI) use VPN clients such as genuconnect. For this purpose, they require smart cards with the suitable certificates.
The Certificate Solution genutrust enables the required number of VPN certificates to be acquired as well as e-mail certificates to be set up on smart cards. It can also support a fast replacement of the encryption software Chiasmus. The automated creation of the smard cards contributes to the relief of IT administration staff.
Moreover, genutrust meets all requirements of the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) with respect to a PKI and is compliant with classification level German VS-NfD.
The Certificate Solution genutrust includes a newly developed initialization server for acquiring digital certificates from D-Trust GmbH. These certificates meet all BSI requirements – organizations can therefore utilize all the benefits of the D-Trust PKI without the expense and effort of having to set up their own infrastructure.
Furthermore, the initialization server functions as the central platform for collecting the smart card information as well as controlling the smart card printer. This enables the fully automated production of ready-to-use smart cards.
genutrust is compatible with the VPN solutions from genua: The certificates can be used, e.g., for genuconnect with IKEv2. Keys without certificates can also be generated.
Sensitive data is thus securely protected by the VPN Software Client genuconnect at all times even when communicating from remote. Mandatory use of smart cards provides an additional level of security.
Combined with the Certificate Solution genutrust, genuconnect provides you with a ready-to-use, flexible and easily administrable complete solution for secure communication at classification level German VS-NfD from a single source.
