As a commitment to the smart card industry to provide affordable technology Kyros is proud to release “The CRYPTO”. The Crypto is a contact smart card fully complying with ISO-7816-3, 4, 6, 8 and 9. It is designed for accelerating, improving security-based mechanisms like authentication, verification, secure encryption, decryption, key pairs generation and performance for RSA public key cryptographic operations that are essential in PKI, Digital Signature.


The promise of the Internet as an electronic medium for conducting high-value business transactions traditionally performed in person has yet to be fully realized. While it is true that parties can communicate, exchange information and negotiate securely, the process typically moves to a paper-based environment at a critical juncture: the point at which a signature is required.

As more business activities migrate to on-line systems, the risk of unauthorized access, breach of confidentiality and user authentication is growing. Public key cryptography (PKI) is the preferred technology for reducing these risks. Today’s state-of-the-art Internet security techniques such as SSL, Digital Signature or PKI are all based on public key cryptography.
Public key cryptography uses a pair of strong cryptographic keys.The public key and the private key, which is kept in a secured location on the smart card, while the public key, may be circulated.
