Smart Card Management
Smart cards are secure devices that are used for many purposes, with perhaps the most important being as combined identification badges for enterprises. With all professional smart card use, the cards must be managed across the entirety of the smart card lifecycle. At the base level, personalization tasks include setting PIN codes, setting policies, loading certificates, provisioning and setting management keys. At the management level, tasks include unblocking PIN codes, setting new PIN codes, and renewing and issuing new certificates. Revocation typically ends the smart card lifecycle, but it is also the point when the card can be personalized again. All of these tasks and many more are handled by the vSEC:CMS smart card management system.

Smart Card Lifecycle
All smart card operations within vSEC:CMS focus on the smart card lifecycle. We use a state diagram to graphically visualize the lifecycle; the diagram clearly shows the operator each card, its location in the lifecycle and available actions/processes from this state. The same diagram is also used by the administrator when configuring the processes.
