Thales Trusted Cyber Technologies Smart Card 650 V4.2 Receives National Security Agency Approval for use in Defense Networks

April 18, 2022

Thales Trusted Cyber Technologies (TCT), a trusted, U.S. based source for cyber security solutions, today announced that its Smart Card 650 v4.2 token (SC650) has received approval from the National Security Agency (NSA) for use in defense networks when using an approved applet (CoolKey version 1.5.558cdcff). The SC650 is a high assurance identification and authentication smart card that brings two-factor authentication to applications and networks where security is critical.

This is an update to the previous SC650 which has been the only certificate-based smart card to ever be designed at all levels from NSA requirements and officially awarded NSA Certification. It enables strong two-factor authentication and proof-positive user identification in all SECRET level environments. The SC650 securely stores users’ credentials, such as digitally-signed certificates, private keys, and network login credentials and seamlessly supports secure key generation, secure key storage, encryption/decryption, and digital signature processing. The SC650 is capable of performing all private and public key cryptographic functions directly on the smart card, thus eliminating potential threats resulting from private key exposure. The SC650 contains a custom smart card ASIC developed by Thales TCT and produced at a U.S. based foundry. The SC650 is manufactured and supported exclusively in the United States to mitigate potential supply chain security risks.
