SafeNet Minidriver offers lightweight PKI management functionality and is perfect for small to medium size businesses with limited deployments. SafeNet Minidriver provides a simple alternative to developing a legacy cryptographic service provider (CSP) by encapsulating the complex cryptographic operations from the card Minidriver vendor. SafeNet Minidriver presents a consistent interface between Thales PKI authenticators and Microsoft’s Smart Card Base Cryptographic Service Provider (CSP) or Crypto Next Generation (CNG) Key Storage Provider (KSP) and to the Smart Card Management Interface.
SafeNet Minidriver is a perfect solution for IT departments who need minimal administrative support and just need a light solution. With SafeNet Minidriver, IT departments can easily manage Thales minidriver-enabled smart cards and eTokens in a Windows environment. Part of the Thales middleware portfolio, SafeNet Minidriver allows for management of Thales' extensive SafeNet portfolio of certificate-based authenticators, including eToken, IDPrime smart cards, USB and software-based devices.
