Hard Token Management Framework (HTMF)
In short is it a Hard Token Management Framework in Java used to manage
the complete livecycle of Smartcard and/or USB
dongles in an organization.
It communicates with the tokens through a PKCS11 interface so it is
possible to change hardware as long as they supply it with a good
implementation of PKCS11.
It comes along quite with a few ready made modules that can be composed to fit the need of the organization.
The Hard Token Management Framework uses EJBCA Certificate Authority (see http://www.ejbca.org) as Certificate Authority.
The current application suite of modules using the hard token management framework 'ToLiMa' have the following features.
- Issue tokens, regular, temporary and project
- Unlock PIN of a token without exposing the PUK code for the users or administrators
- Revoke lost cards
- Renew expiring cards
- Activate cards in the organizations systems
- It is also possible to issue and unlock tokens on an approval basis, used in scenarios were no
token administrator is available (for instance in 24/7 operational environments). Then it is possible for a colleague of
the end user to generate a request of the action which is sent to a central support unit for review and approval.
- Revoke and reactivate remotely.
