Overview | Specifications

HID DisplayCard Tokens enable organizations to apply strong authentication to their network, system and cloud-based applications. The DisplayCard Tokens fit easily into a user’s wallet, making them highly portable and convenient. When needed, users simply click a button and the DisplayCard Token generates a One-Time Password they can use to authenticate to the resources they need.

There are two products in the HID DisplayCard Token family:

  1. DisplayCard Token: designed to easily enable remote access or consumer authentication to services, such as online banking. Facilitates mobility by allowing users to generate dynamic One-Time Passwords, without needing to use a card reader.
  2. Smart DisplayCard Token:combines the security of a Token with public key infrastructure (PKI) features for online authentication in a Smart Card form factor. It’s embedded with a Smart Chip that supports standard Smart Card PKI capabilities, such as email encryption and digital signatures. It supports two user authentication modes: ‘Connected Mode’ for authentication from corporate-issued machines, and ‘Disconnected Mode’ for authentication from a kiosk or mobile device.

The HID DisplayCard Tokens enable organizations to:

  • Enhance Security – replace the use of static passwords, with multi-factor authentication.
  • Reduce costs – eliminate the need for special readers.
  • Increase Convenience – the credit card form factor is easy to carry and use.
