=46ully Compatible With “Tiger’s” Support For Smart Cards, CRYPTO-Server 6.3
=46or OS X Provides Simple Authenticated Access To Desktops-Even If The User
Is Not Connected To The Network!

PARIS, FRANCE, September 19, 2005 CRYPTOCard (,
a leading authentication developer, will demonstrate CRYPTO-Server 6.3 for
OS X, the authentication solution designed to make it simple to positively
identify all Panther and Tiger users attempting LAN, VPN (Apple or Cisco),
or Web-based (Apache) access, at the Apple Expo (booth 22) in Paris from
September 20th through 24th. Specifically designed to fully integrate with
Tiger’s robust support for smart card environments, CRYPTO-Server 6.3
couples something in the user’s possession (a multi-function smart card,
USB token, hardware token, or software token), with something the user
knows (their PIN) to provide secure, enterprise-class LAN, Web, and remote
ATM-style One-PIN-and-You=92re-In=92 authenticated access that mirrors the l=
and feel of the OS X logon ensuring that the technology is simple for
Tiger and Panther users to utilize. CRYPTO-Server 6.3’s “Fast User
Switching” functionality also makes it simple for multiple Tiger users to
securely access the Mac, using smart cards or tokens in a stand-alone or
networked environment.

Incorporating CRYPTOCard’s familiar ATM-style logon, that has proven to
eliminate the user resistance usually encountered when organizations
attempt to implement an additional layer of security, CRYPTO-Server 6.3 for
OS X generates a one-time password for every log-on attempt, making stolen
credentials useless to hackers while simultaneously ensuring Tiger and
Panther users do not have to memorize complicated credentials
significantly reducing the help-desk costs associated with resetting
forgotten passwords, and the obvious security risk resulting from users
writing down their passwords.

“Understanding that an organization cannot guarantee a system security if
it cannot positively authenticate each individual user, CRYPTOCard has
developed a fully-integrated authentication solution specifically designed
for Tiger and Panther,” commented Malcolm MacTaggart, President & CEO,
CRYPTOCard Corporation. “CRYPTO-Server 6.3 now makes it simple for Tiger
and Panther users, particularly in the traditional Mac strongholds of the
health, legal, higher education, and printing/publishing/multimedia
sectors, to provide true ATM-style One-PIN-and-You=92re-In=92 enterprise-cla=
strong user authentication for LAN, VPN, Web, or remote system access.”

CRYPTOCard’s CRYPTO-Logon feature makes it easy for OS X users attempting
to gain secure LAN, Web, or remote access to the system to authenticate
themselves to the CRYPTO-Server by simply inserting their smart card and
entering their PIN. To log off, the user simply removes their smart card to
lock the desktop. CRYPTO-Server 6.3 for OS X’s “Fast User Switching”
functionality makes it simple for multiple users to utilize CRYPTOCard’s
familiar ATM-style protocol to gain authenticated access via the same
computer in stand-alone and, or, in network environments.

CRYPTO-Server’s remote access functionality offers support for Apple’s VPN
Server, with the same “One-PIN-and-You=92re-In.” experience, however, if
hardware tokens are employed, no additional software is required on the
client side CRYPTOCard’s two-factor-authentication is ready to go,
“out-of-the-box.” CRYPTO-Server 6.3’s CRYPTO-Web component also makes it
simple for Tiger users to utilize the exact same ATM-style log-on protocol
to positively authenticate themselves to Apache and IIS Websites, right
down to the page level. And, with almost 75 percent (or more than 13
million) of the world’s web servers running on Apache, CRYPTO-Server 6.3
for OS X represents a significant advance in authentication technology for
the web medium.

Building on CRYPTOCard’s “Best of Show” award at MacWorld 2004,
CRYPTO-Server 6.3 for OS X provides administrators with centralized
authentication and management capability, emphasizing ease-of-use and tight
integration with Apple’s Open Directory LDAP services. CRYPTO-Server 6.3
will not only make it simple to enforce two-factor authentication as the
only way to access a workstation, but will also make it simple to lock down
access through VPN’s, Portals, and web servers.

A true enterprise solution offering “High Availability,” CRYPTO-Server 6.3
has no single point of failure switching to a replica server in the event
of system failure utilizing real-time multi-master replication
functionality. Additionally, CRYPTO-Server 6.3 for OS X makes it easy for
organizations to create a token-deployment database by reading on a
real-time basis from OpenLDAP, while the solution’s CRYPTO-Deploy component
makes it incredibly simple for administrators to instantly distribute
software tokens from any computer, to any user. CRYPTO-Server’s versatile
software tokens can reside on a user’s desktop, laptop, multi-function
smart card, or Pocket PC.

CRYPTO-Server 6.3’s other components include CRYPTO-Kit, which provides
developers with the tools to make it simple to integrate CRYPTOCard’s
technology with existing security applications/systems; CRYPTO-Deploy, to
facilitate the deployment and activation of tokens; and CRYPTO-Migration;
which provides RSA Migration functionality that enables organizations to
switch from an alternative system (CRYPTOCard’s tokens, with replaceable
batteries, are deployed once and can be utilized indefinitely).

As an Apple Expo Special, a five-user bundle (all-you-need-in-1-box the
full server software plus five tokens) is available for only $349U.S.
(SRP). CRYPTOCard’s products are available from Apple’s Federal Website and
via distributors, integrators, and resellers in France, the U.K., the U.S.,
Japan, and over 70 other countries worldwide. For more information on
