Security through Authentication Most computers and networks use simple user names and passwords to protect themselves. But passwords alone do not provide adequate protection—they are easily shared or guessed. SafeNet’s iKey™ 1000 was designed specifically as a portable and secure authentication token addressing the password replacement needs of both users and systems administrators. For users, the iKey 1000 is convenient and easy-to-use; simply plug it into an open USB port and enter the iKey’s PIN. For systems administrators, the iKey 1000 is a powerful authentication device incorporating random challenges and real-time calculated responses, while shielding the user from the underlying process. The iKey 1000 is a powerful, portable two-factor authentication device ideally suited for eMail security, file encryption and desktop security through Windows 2000 smart card logon, and iKey partner solutions.
