While many organizations have employed smart card identification to enhance their physical security infrastructure, data centers in particular can benefit greatly from the two-factor authentication that a smart card inherently provides to the logical realm. When seeking a smart card-enabled KVM system, choose not only a solution that fulfills the basic requirement of supporting PKI authentication to multiple servers from a single location, but also one that makes the necessary KVM feature adjustments to enable seamless use of the reader. Finally, it should adhere to industry standards to ensure that security thresholds are met. This White Paper examines these considerations in greater detail and defines best practices when evaluating and deploying a Smart Card Authentication solution.
