    Easier in an Enterprise level setup

    Posted by SB on May 17th 2020

    Purchased for testing smart card authentication in a lab environment and excelled on that front. (Windows 10 1909/2016 domain level)

    Easy to use and "just works"!

    Posted by SageStone on Jul 26th 2019

    I love my PIVKey! I like to “get my hands dirty” and dig into different kinds of technologies, usually related to Linux or Windows servers. I thought it’d be pretty cool to take a look into smart card login integration with Active Directory as I already had a Windows 2012 domain controller setup in my home lab, but I initially wasn’t too sure on what all I needed. It turned out that all I really needed was a smart card reader and a smart card – after doing some research online, it was pretty clear to me that the PIVKey had a good success rate. Enrolling a user account for a smart card in Active Directory was easier than I thought it would be, and I didn’t have any issues with the PIVKey, and the setup is still working great two months later! The PIVKey came with some instructions and general information that made enrollment a breeze. With the PIVKey, I’m simply able to insert the PIVKey into a smart card reader and then enter a PIN number that I set to login to Windows. I’ve also read that smart cards can be integrated with Exchange – I hope to test out the PIVKey with that soon as well. Overall, I would highly recommend this smart card and I haven’t had any issues whatsoever.

    Perfect. Comes with a certificate and is Mifare compatible. I now have 4 of these for work, we've designated these as our issued Credential.

    Works with generic smart card reader

    Posted by Tim Kramer on Jul 22nd 2019

    Works with a generic smart card reader (e.g., https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00S7HX442) on Ubuntu, with the installation of middleware (Ubuntu has opensc and opensctools in its repository). Programming the card appears to require a Windows system and the vendor's management software. I'm still researching this.

    I love it - I'm very happy they sell them in ...

    Posted by Chris GRay on Jul 19th 2019

    I bought one, I love it - I'm very happy they sell them in quantity one, smart cards can be VERY tough to get in low volumes.I also like that the client PC does not need to install software to use these cards! just the "admin" computer (the computer that writes the certs)tip - when u use the software to write the cert, you'll be doing so using the "miniport". this "miniport" is required to be installed on all client computers. If you'd prefer not to install software on the client computer, follow PIVKeys instructions for "mapping". It's very easy, I just didnt realize why I'd need to map - the idea is w/o installed software, there are a small number of slots. You have to map your cert into one of these default slots, else the out of the box software cannot locate the certA++

    This works with Windows Server.

    Posted by TrooperThorn on Jun 20th 2019

    All the information I needed to make the card work was readily available. Their site had all of the information that I needed to easily create and manage certificates on these cards. I now have my AD domain account configured with a certificate and now connect utilizing the card to log in to all systems and into my IIS website.

    Worked with generic smart card reader and Putty-CAC and browser also

    Posted by JL on Jun 12th 2019

    This worked with Windows 10 and Putty-CAC and browser.

    Taglio has an app now (I don't know if they always had it) called vsec_CMS that provides a GUI that can change the PIN, import certs, view certs, etc. Worked fine with Win10 also.
