PIV Middleware

PIV Minidriver - Is an enterprise based middleware. The solution developed by 90meter utilizes the Microsoft OS platform to enable smartcards natively in the OS. The 90meter PIV Minidriver has been designed to maximize security and performance by providing all of the features you need, and none of the features you don’t. The PIV Minidriver minimizes CPU cycles and footprint. These features include the ability to:

  • Automatically set-up MS Outlook on the desktops to sign and encrypt email
  • Install a simple DLL into the OS and the PIV smartcard becomes fully functional
  • Automatically publish Public certificates to the Global Address List (GAL).
  • Immediate secure communication with GAL colleagues
  • Implement and enforce the established enterprise PIN policy.
  • Change it if you need more/less security
  • Provide feedback to the user on the status of the card.

Encrypting email sometimes takes time, prevent un-needed support calls by letting the average user know his/her card is working with 90meter PIV Manager.
PIV Minidriver decreases latency issues with forward deployed troops, while preventing the need for “alternative logon methods”.  Keep hardened security all the way to the workstation for logon, signing and encrypting.  Don’t let “alternative” solutions become the weakest link for attack.

  • Utilize all three certificates (identity, sign, encrypt)
  • Warn users prior to expiration of certificates on the card
The PIV Minidriver software is made, tested, and supported with pride by US citizens in the USA.

90meter PIV Minidriver complies with all applicable standards.

90meter PIV Minidriver is Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 201 certified middleware, meeting Personal Identity Verification (PIV) I & II standards. The PIV Minidriver meets SP 800-73 for technical specifications to interface with the smart card to retrieve and use identity credentials. 90meter PIV Minidriver is set up as an ala carte menu list. As our clients want more capability we deliver through a modular design, without changing the users experience. Special builds allow for easy admin set up. Trouble shooting keys allow for remote diagnostics. Logon, sign, and encrypt quickly and efficiently.

90meter supports a highly client-centric development. PIV Minidriver products are continually refined response to direct feedback of our clients.
