Say Goodbye to older version of Epass tokens: Streamlining India's Businesses with Digital Signatures and updated PKI HYP2003 Tokens
In today's fast-paced world, businesses need to keep up with the latest technological advancements to stay ahead of the game. One of the most significant innovations in recent years is the adoption of digital signatures and Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) tokens. These tokens have made it easier for businesses to streamline their operations by eliminating the need for physical signatures and documentation.
With the latest crypto guidelines 2.0 in effect from 01/04/2023, it's time for businesses in India to streamline their operations with digital signatures and updated PKI HYP2003 Tokens.
With the updated PKI HYP2003 Tokens, businesses can enjoy enhanced security features and improved efficiency. These tokens are compliant with the latest industry standards and offer a higher level of security for digital transactions. Additionally, digital signatures provide a convenient and reliable way to authenticate documents, saving time and effort for businesses.
How upgrading to PKI HYP2003 tokens can improve your business's security and efficiency?
Starting from April 1st, 2023, new token guidelines and Crypto Guidelines 2.0 will be implemented. The entire PKI ecosystem, including CAs, RAs, Token Suppliers, and Resellers, is preparing to comply with the new guidelines.
We have new HYP2003 tokens available that are compatible with the new guidelines. If you need them, please contact us, and we will deliver them quickly.
How can you recognize HYP2003 token?
The serial number for the new HYP2003 tokens, , starts with "HS", which are compatible with the new guidelines. The serial number series of the token inside the middleware also starts with "HS". You can check this by plugging in the token and looking at the Token manager or over the sticker on outer body.
According to the new guidelines, all CAs should download certificates only in USB hardware tokens with an OEM Prefix serial number. Tokens issued under HYP2003 should have serial numbers starting with "HS". As a result, I cannot download certificates into existing tokens that are already in circulation.
Maximize the benefits of digital signatures and PKI tokens with this comprehensive guide on upgrading your token.
We can update existing HYP2003 tokens that are eligible for an upgrade to the newer version compatible with Crypto Guidelines 2.0 on a chargeable basis. To prevent loss of existing unused stock, eligible HYP2003 tokens can be reset to the new CSP by paying nominal handling charges.
***Please note that only unused eligible tokens with the HYP2003 tokens can be updated to the new CSP.
Used tokens with certificates stored on them may become corrupt during the update process, as the system is designed only to update unused tokens. Applying used tokens for update will result in the loss of the token and update charges.
After 15 months, it is unlikely that any tokens with "ePass2003Auto" stickers remain unused. However, if anyone still has unused tokens with "ePass2003Auto" stickers, the upgrade process for eligible tokens applied, so contact our support team or apply from the link
The use of PKI HYP2003 tokens can help businesses save time and money by eliminating the need for physical signatures and documentation. This is especially important in today's remote work environment, where physical signatures and documents can be a hassle to manage. With digital signatures, businesses can easily sign and authenticate documents online, from anywhere in the world.
The update system for ePass2003Auto tokens has certain limitations, which users need to be aware of to avoid any issues. The update system is designed to detect the OEM ID of HYP2003 tokens only. This means that any other tokens, including ePass2003Auto tokens, cannot be updated using this system.
As the update system has been designed only to detect the OEM ID of HYP2003 tokens, it cannot update ePass2003Auto tokens. This means that if the user tries to update the ePass2003Auto token using this system, the update instance fails, and the update count is wasted.
There have been reports that some people have tried to replace stickers on ePass2003Auto tokens with stickers from HYP2003. A sticker replacement will not change the OEM ID on the token.
The Token Update System will fail to update these types of tokens and it may get corrupted. When stickers are manipulated, the Token won't update on computer and your update counts will be lost. There are no tokens that are eligible for update, except for the HYP2003 series tokens.
Hence request you to apply unused HYP2003 Tokens only for update from authorized seller only.
