The basic elements of AGSES infrastructure are:
AC – AGSES Card
The token is in the possession of the user and he has been connected biometrically with it.
The AGSES Card can manage up to 128 independent, cryptographically separate instances of authentication (authentication authorities).
FCG – Flicker Code Generator
Different methods are incorporated (in an environment) on the Frontend in order to represent a binary code by alternating light change. E.g.: Flicker-code on a screen of a webpage-frontend.
IL – Integration Link
Toolset is the procedure which integrates on the Backend in order to establish a secure communication-connection with the security manager.
AA – Authentication Authority
A key for authentication with an own authentication signature, which is shown on the card as a logo and which shows the user over which authority the authentication is done.
SM – Security Manager
The main part of the AGSES infrastructure, which generates and manages the individual keys for the managed AGSES Cards. The associated authentication authorities are also on the SM. A SM can manage several authentication authorities.
CM – Credential Manager
Infrastructure is used only by AGSES and for hosting and for distributing initial keys. SMS are connected via a secure connection to the CM and may reflect initial key cards, which were not registered at the SM. These initial keys are only for a first addressing of 128 crypto slots on the card and cannot be used by the SM anymore after the first utilization, because the SM invites an independent key, only the SM-known key on the card.
