  • Get ready for the future with the new IOGEAR USB Common Access Card Reader. Often referred to as a Smart Card, the Common Access Card (or CAC) is the shape of a credit card, however it is embedded with a chip that can process data, and permit access to delegated computer systems. Smart Cards are often programmed with a PIN to ensure security for both the card holder and the system they want to access. The use of Smart Cards can improve user security by combining something a user has (the smart card) with something only the user should know (a PIN), this provides two factor security that is more secure than passwords alone. Smart Card readers are used as a communications medium between the smart card and a host (e.g. a computer, a point-of-sale terminal, etc.). The combination of the small size and IC make them a valuable tool for security, data storage, and other special applications.

    The traditional credit card uses a magnetic-strip which stores a very small amount of information and has no processing capability of its own. Smart Cards are the next generation of secure and user friendly identification, authentication & data storage solution. IOGEAR USB Common Access Card Readers use a contact system where the card must be inserted directly into the card reader; this type of reader is less prone to misalignment and eliminates the possibility of being misread.

    When it comes to secure access, the Common Access Card (or Smart Card) is an evolutionary step in convenience and security. GSR202 is listed on the Approved Product List and is TAA compliant product.
