Versasec Announces vSEC:CMS S-Series 5.5

Versasec, today unveiled Version 5.5 of vSEC:CMS S-Series today, the latest iteration of its award-winning identity and access management (IAM) solution. Among its many upgrades, Version 5.5 now supports subscription-based licensing, and allows for the exporting of certificate data when performing life cycle/certificate operations. The new version adds additional smart card support, including Gemalto’s PIV 3.0 and Identiv uTrust MD smart cards.

With Version 5.5, Versasec has also added the following new features:

  • Includes support for fingerprint enrollment using Oberthur PIV 8.1 smart cards
  • Support for Gemalto IDPrime MD 3940 smart cards has been added
  • Adds hardware security module (HSM) protected GlobalPlatform keys for Oberthur PIV 8.1 cards
  • Includes support for R-END/R-MAC in the GlobalPlatform secure messaging for Oberthur PIV 8.1 (2.4.1-SPE)
  • Offers a new option to import PKCS#12/PFX files for smart card issuance on the server side
  • Adds support for PUC based challenge/response PIN unblock for all vSEC:CMS supported PIV smart cards

  • Offers new configuration option for whether the Operator Console will handle certificate requests to Microsoft CA directly or via vSEC:CMS server (proxy)
  • Allows for reconfiguration of the MS SQL connection when the local internal database is empty
  • Includes functionality to rebuild a locally cached database from MS SQL
  • Adds a Versasec-Activator System Owner (SO) Session option; once a SO card is used for authentication, the System Owner PIN is not asked for again for 10 minutes, enabling issuance of multiple operator cards

  • Offers configuration capabilities when there are errors returned on life cycle card issuance
